It is impossible to go through the chapstick aisle at your local drugstore without seeing those small spherical containers known as EOS Lip Balm. Since its debut in 2009, the balm has gained massive popularity with consumers from all walks of life. Its paraben-free formula consisting of natural ingredients such as various vitamins, jojoba oil, and shea butter creates a hydrating as well as safe lip balm. This along with its secure and attractive packaging lends to the balm’s favorable reputation in the beauty community. However, while the aesthetic and ingredients are top-notch, how well does the balm perform on chapped lips according to the public?

In almost all positive reviews for the EOS, it is mentioned that the products smell fantastic. This is a quality that remains consistent throughout the many scents that this balm comes in. There is also a flavor to some of the balms that are not as strong as its scent, which is a pro or a con depending on preference. They also do successfully moisturize dry lips, making the product just as practical as it is pretty.

In more neutral critiques of the EOS, consumers question how effective the packaging itself is, lamenting over not being able to fit the spherical shape into their pockets. Other concerns that arise in the more neutral reviews are the pricing and the longevity of the moisturizing effects of the balm. However, these are small concerns and for the most part, the balms are seen to be just as effective in their performance as other chapsticks on the market.

The EOS Lip Balm is essential in millions of purses, and for good reason. It is moisturizing, organic, and attractive. Some people believe it is everything a lip balm should be, and others could live without it.
