Ever since I tried EOS's wonderful shaving cream, I decided to try a little bit of their lip balm, too - it was prettily shaped, interesting, and quite unique at the same time. Because it is usually dry in our little Orange County, California suburb, it's hard for me to keep my lips from chapping or peeling, especially in the summer and during the cold, dry, and harsh winters (believe me, it does get cold and rainy here in California). However, I wasn't too impressed by my EOS Summer Fruit lip balm. While it has a pleasing, fruity smell - a rather interesting bouquet of warm plums, peaches, and nectarines - the actual moisturizing ability of this lip balm was nil to none. It didn't really soften or smooth my dry lips, and in fact, they still felt sort of dry, even after several hours and reapplications. It does have a less acrid, castor-oil flavor than most other lip balms, and is easier to apply, much more stylish (semi-spherical shape), and easier to use-plus-store, yet for me, it just didn't deliver that soft-lips comfort that I crave. What was also a downer was that this is not cheap, not one bit - it's actually quite expensive, so in a way, it's really not worth the money. It might be pretty for your purse though, but that's about all.
