EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm is one of those products that looks better than it performs. But I still have a thing for it.. Just look at it. Isn’t it cute?
But would I recommend it to someone else? Probably not… Here’s why:
What’s In EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm?
SUNFLOWER, COCONUT & JOJOBA OIL
EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm has an oil base. Sunflower, coconut and jojoba oils are all loaded with fatty acids that deeply moisturize the skin.
It works like this: fatty acid strengthen your skin’s protective barrier, so that moisture stays in. The more moisture your skin has, the smoother and softer it becomes.
Plus, a stronger protective barrier means less risk of irritation. With the extra help, your skin is better able to withstand harsh weather, powerful skincare actives, nasty germs and bacteria, and anything else that tries to hurt it.

This lip balm also contains a big dollop of beeswax and carnauba wax. It’s what gives the lip balm its shape. Plus, they have emollient properties that make skin soft and smooth.
The non-sticky texture is neither too thin nor too thick and glides well on the lips.

It smells divine! Sweet, but not nauseatingly so. More than strawberry sorbet, it reminds me of the strawberry ice cream my mom used to buy me when I was little. Every time I use it, it takes me back to my childhood.
How To Use It
Apply it wherever you feel your lips need the extra moisture (hint: prepare to do it often).
Performance & Personal Opinion
EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm isn’t the most moisturizing lip balm I’ve ever tried. That’s an understatement. It barely moisturizes at all!
It leaves my lips soft and smooth, but only for a couple of hours. Then, it’s time to apply another layer. Janessa, the lovely lady who gave it to me, warned me about this so I can’t say that I was that disappointed about it.
My lips are in good condition anyway so this lip balm is moisturizing enough for me. But if yours are dry and chapped then you may have to apply it a lot more often. Better opt for something more hydrating instead!
Shame, cos I love the subtle shine it leaves behind.
Who Is This For?
Anyone whose lips are in good condition, but they still want to have some fun with lip balms.
Who Is This Not For?
If you need a moisturizing lip balm (and who doesn’t?), this isn’t for you.
It’s pink! And shaped like an egg! Isn’t that absolutely adorable? Sure, it’s a little bulky, but it makes application a breeze, and fits nicely the contours of my lips.
Does EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm Live Up To The Hype?
