Not love at first sight for eos Honeysuckle Honeydew Lip Balm

So I've heard a lot about eos lip balms. A lot of very good things. So I was really looking forward to trying this!

I bought mine from Cute Cosmetics for £5.95 and went with Organic Honeysuckle Honeydew, they also have Lemon Drop, Medicated Tangerine, Strawberry Sorbet, Summer Fruit, and Passion Fruit varieties. Honeysuckle is one of my favourite scents, so I though this would be my best choice.

I've seen lots of reviews of the funny shape of this already, so I wasn't surprised here. It was as expected... and yes, it smells like a combo of honeysuckle and honeydew melon....  but but but... I just don't love it.

I'm sorry. It's not bad. It's just all right. I'm not sure if I am missing something, but I was expecting something amazing the way people have been going on about these balms. I was actually rather disappointed.

It did glide on smoothly, and was okay on my lips. I didn't find it incredibly moisturizing or anything. Well, not anymore so than Chapstick. Don't get me wrong, Chapstick is good too, but it's not exactly a new thing, so I guess I was expecting more.

I wouldn't say it's a bad product, but I just expected a whole lot more. I won't be repurchasing this, and it's definitely not knocked my Fresh Sugar as my 'I can't live without' lip balm.

Anyone else agree or disagree? I'd love to hear what you guys think of eos lip balms!


  1. I've not heard of this brand before now. I'm sorry you were disappointed, but that's the way it goes sometimes, doesn't it. One woman's Holy Grail product another thinks is nothing special.

    I'm a big ol' Chapstick fan and have yet to find any lip balm in any price range that beats it.

    1. You might like it. Lots of people seem to! I don't wanna say it's a negative review at all, but you're right, it's just not a Holy Grail product for me at all. x

  2. Honestly I think it will get better the more you use it. My experience with EOS is that it is not amazing the first week I use it. It, for some reason, gets smoother and slicker as you use it. I cannot explain this but it is my experience. I know that sounds weird, but it seems to be true for me.

    1. I have had it a few weeks, so I do feel like I have given it a fair chance. It's not bad, it's just not as amazing as I expected. It hasn't managed to get softer for me, but it might be cos we've been having the coldest May ever - seriously, I've not put away my winter coats yet :(
