EOS Summer Fruit and Sweet Mint
The first one I chose was Summer Fruit, I heard a lot of people say the taste of this reminded them of coconut and that it smelled nice. Well neither of these things are really true... The taste is more like a fruit punch and more artificial than anything and the smell is well confusing to say the least. I can't figure it out but it's a little offensive and almost smells like ...rotting fruit... It's not a good smell that's for sure the taste is tolerable but the smell really throws things off. This one is also much more waxy than the Sweet Mint which I found odd because they have the same basic ingredients. Perhaps the Summer Fruit I received was old or expired even? Needless to say I'm not using this one.
Sweet Mint on the other hand is completely different than the Summer Fruit it has a soft minty scent to it tastes just like those peppermint fluff candies and has a cooling sensation when applied. I love this lip balm hands down and could easily replace my over used coco care lip balm that is so beat up I have never actually reviewed it here.. lol I find I do lick it off my lips more often than not however because it taste so good so I'm continually re applying it. I can't help its quite tasty! This one also feels thin and smooth when applied with no waxy effect.
Since using Sweet Mint I find my lips are well moisturized and much more supple. I have very dry lips in the winter months and they tend to flake and peel more often than I would like them too but in combination with some exfoliation from Lush's Sweet Lips and this EOS Sweet Mint Lip balm I'm pleased to report that they are in much better condition.
A little goes a long way with these which is nice and the application method is definitely a bit different since this is a sphere. I'll admit it felt a little awkward applying it at first but once you get used to it it's not so bad. The packaging on this product is super nice and the spheres actually twist closed so they are great to throw in your purse and not have to worry about it getting on anything. They are too bulky to keep in your pocket but I don't usually put lip balms in my pockets for fear of melting..
Have you tried EOS Lip Spheres?
