EOS lip balm: worth the hype?

Hey guys!

I'm sure that no introduction is needed with the EOS lip balms as even though they aren't easily available in the UK everyone and their mother seems to have one. 

The normal flavours are lemon drop, tangerine, honeysuckle honeydew, strawberry sorbet, summer fruit and mint. However, after watching one of my favourite youtube beauty bloggers Macbarbie07 here talk about the limited Alice in wonderland EOS lip balms I decided to go for one of them instead. 

The limited edition pack consists of three flavours: blueberry potion (the one I bought), watermelon wonderland and sweet vanilla nonsense. 

I love the fact that this EOS lip balm is named 'blueberry potion', I think it's just a really cute touch. As for the actual product, I'm actually not as impressed as I thought I would be. I think this is because everyone goes crazy for them. 

I really like the smell although I personally don't think it smells that much like blueberry. I like the application as it's not messy due to not using your fingers and I also like the fact it is a completely natural product. I do find this lip balm very motorising and I like the fact that it sinks into your lips rather quickly. 

Overall, I am happy with this product but due to people raving about it the way they do I actually expected more. I have lip balms that are equally as good (some I actually prefer) and they are only a fraction of the price.

I would recommend this product as it is very good but there are definitely cheaper lip balms that are just as effective!

You can buy the limited Alice in wonderland EOS lip balms from this seller for £3.79 with £1.99 postage.

Have you tried the EOS lip balms?

Thanks for reading! 



  1. I won one in a giveaway and was so excited to try it, but like you said, after hearing lots of rave reviews about it I was a little disappointed.

    1. I know! It's so disappointing because I expected to love it!


  2. I've gotta admit, I've not caved to the "trend" but I've had my eye on them a bit but I'm still working my way through tubes of Burts Bees which I love. But are kinda pricey but they're smooth and glossy which I love...

    1. I've never tried burts bees, I've always wanted to try them though!
