If you guys can remember, I promised to give the Eos lip balm another try. A lot of you have asked if I'm sure I didn't get a bad one but a friend of mine has the exact same flavour and it smells the same biko, very synthetic and horrible.
Well I purchased another one the day I published this review and it is safe to say that this one is reviewable, lol.
This time, I settled for sweet mint. I'm not a big fan of minty things when it comes to lip products but it was either this or strawberry and I don't like anything strawberry (story for another day) so I decided to go with this. It tastes and smells like spear mint which is the only good type of mint in my opinion. If it was pepper mint eh, we would be back to square one!
I've been using this constantly for over 4 weeks now and it is just OK. I honestly don't get what the hype is about. I've used better lip balms! and they didn't even cost half the price I paid for this one. It feels waxy when you first apply it but it does moisturize. It is not as hydrating as the Maybelline baby lips in anyway, my Vaseline Intensive lip therapy which costs me about N600 even does a better job. I also noticed that my lips started getting a lot drier so as I type, I no longer use it. It tastes just like spear mint candy and leaves a tingly sensation on the lips. One of my favorite things about it is the packaging, I love how cute and round it is.
