EOS Lip balms - Worth the hype? ♥

Today I am here with a review of the EOS lip balms. There has been a massive hype surrounding EOS lip balms for a while now, as they are only available in the US. Until recently they seemed almost impossible to get hold of, but now that Selfridges and Amazon are selling them, everyone seems to be going crazy for them all over again. They retail for around £5.99, which I know is quite a lot of money for just a...well....lip balm, but whilst I was browsing Amazon I found them for only £2.50 on a special deal. I told my Mum that I was thinking of buying one and because Mums seem to remember everything, I woke up on my birthday to open two. I have them in Strawberry Sorbet and Pomegranate.

The first thing I noticed when I got them out their packaging was their smooth rounded shape. I think that this is the reason everybody seems to love them. I find the shape really handy as you can just chuck one in your bag and find it really easily. However, unlike other lip balms, they won't fit in your pocket.

The texture of the lip balm is very smooth and almost "buttery", meaning that it glides on your lips really well. I know the main thing your probably wanting to know is "Do they actually moisturize your lips?" and the answer to that is yes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they left my lips feeling softer than they were before as I have tried some lip balms in the past where they make no difference at all.

As well as being a good moisturizer they also have a nice sweet smell. The Pomegranate one has quite a weak scent and taste but Strawberry Sorbet smells delicious! It even tastes of strawberries!

I think that these cute EOS lip balms will be holding a permanent position in my everyday routine and in my handbag; good job I have two! I would 100% recommend EOS lip balms and will probably find more in the future, but the only downside is the price as £5.99 is quite dear. So if your planning on buying one, look out for special deals on amazon.

Have you tried any EOS lip balms before?
