These two lip balms are basically the Samsung and Apple of the lip balm world. I can’t really say I’m for either one because makes a good backup for the other. However, Burt’s Bees has always been my favorite, but to other users, Eos is the way to go.
Burt’s Bees is the only one that seems to be ready to tackle really chapped lips, while Eos is for like an “after use” type lip balm. The reason for Eos to be a secondary product is because it’s more of an accessory, and their main base is the teenage girl or young adult girl. The quirky commercials just seem to be very youthful and appealing to those eyes. Which means men won’t even want to use something so girly, while Burt’s Bees is unisex. They have the same kind of commercial when it comes to the facial products, but the lip balm basically sells itself. Walmart can’t even keep Burt’s Bees in stock and neither can a lot of other stores. Which proves that point.
Eos just doesn’t have the power of healing that any Burt’s Bees lip balm has. The quality is so much lower and Eos just can’t keep up with the lip balms. They have other products like Burt’s Bees, but as I said, sometimes the natural power of their ingredients are not enough. Especially in the winter. I go through tow of the Eos lip balms in 4 weeks for results that are only temporary. Burt’s Bees just happens to have results that stay and you don’t have to worry about having to keep using it over and over again. Eos is also not travel friendly. The giant shape of the egg is just not convenient. You can’t just stick in a pocket and call it good. In fact, I suggest having a special place for it because it’s so huge. With Burt’s Bees, its traditional design is so much easier to carry around and a user can actually slip it in their back pockets with a cellphone in the same pocket.
I finally found a Burt’s Bees lip balm at Walmart tonight, and I couldn’t be happier. I finally have the perfect lip balm and don’t have to worry about looking for something to keep it in. That also means I am set for the winter months and I can start restoring my little collection, if I can find Burt’s Bees tomorrow.
