Rambling Review

I’ll preface this review by saying that I usually get very chapped lips. Summer, winter, it doesn’t really matter. My lips eat up lip balm and I’ve tried so many over the years to find one I like. I’ve used eos products in the past and they have been okay for me. Not a holy grail, but they work well enough that I wouldn’t mind using a few in my routine.

The eos crystal lip balm is a new offering from the company. There are two scents: hibiscus peach and vanilla orchid (I have hibiscus peach to review). The crystal is different from the original eos lip balms as it’s in a triangular prism instead of just a sphere. Another unique feature is the actual balm itself.

The balm is clear and wax-less using 5 natural oils. It’s a cool concept for sure and it looks like it should feel like jelly! (it doesn’t, haha).

Unfortunately the short comings for this products are the actual hydration it provides. I found that the product did not smoothly apply to my lips and I needed a lot of swipes to feel like I got enough product. Even with this, I didn’t feel like I had enough cause my lips would go dry soon after application.

So unfortunately this did not work out for me. The flavour was super pleasant and the concept is cool, but not enough to take me away from my other ride-or-die lip balms.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

  • If it doesn’t have enough hydration, it probably won’t work for me either. The product does look pretty though. I haven’t even tried a regular EOS lipbalm yet. http://www.mrsqbeauty.com

    • Yeah!! Totally agree with your thoughts Jennifer! I find the regular EOS balms okay, but I do have others that work better, so I find I never really reach for them!

  • It looks cute and I like that its clear but I need extra hydration for my lips so this is a pass.

    • Totally! Hydration is a must especially in colder weather!

  • I love the look of the eos lip balms, though I’ve had a similar experience – they aren’t as hydrating as I would like either. Pretty neat that the balm itself is clear though!

    • Yeah I love the look of them, I just wish they were able to pack on that hydration!

  • It certainly looks cute but that’s too bad it didn’t work out for you! I’m not a big fan of eos simply because their blueberry kind broke my lips out in a rash lol. I know a lot of people love them though.

    • Omg nooooo way. Yeah they were in the news about that which is crazy!! 🙁 Hope it wasn’t too bad though, I would be totally scarred from the experience!

  • Esos are good quality products… This look amazing!
    Can you follow me? I follow you. 😉

    Have a lovely weekend!

  • I was never a fan of these EOS balms. I found that they never worked on my lips!

    • Yeah people seem polarized about them: either hate or love them!

    They do look pretty, but I’m not a fan of EOS – i swear they made my lips drier!

    • Yeah for sure! I’ve had that before too. The original are usually okay for me, I just need to re-apply a lot!

  • I remember when the first EOS came out and they were so hard to find and had such hype. I got one and it was such a let down. It almost made my lips more dry. I am glad I read this because I actually hoped these new ones would be better. Thanks for letting me know and saving me some money.

    • For sure! I was hoping for the best just cause they’re so cute, but no go. 🙁

  • That looks so interesting! EOS lips dry my lips out like crazy though. I think they are more interested in the packaging than the formula.

    • For sure, their packaging definitely changed the lip balm game for sure!

  • Shame this didn’t work out for you. I love my EOS lip balms, and I’d love to add this to my collection!

    • Oh, if you do try it, I’d like to hear what you think of it!
