Review: EOS lip balm stick in Vanilla Bean

Size comparison with a Nivea lip balm
(Yes, that is the entire EOS lip balm twisted out, I was surprised too)

Let's compare the ingredients with the EOS sphere lip balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew... They have some similar ingredients but not quite the same ones

- Very smooth

- Scent is barely there (which is what I bought this for)
- Not that moisturizing

$3.49 for 0.14 oz / 4 g
I am a little skeptical whether this is actually 4 grams... It's very short in length and not that long in diameter
And the stick form is not readily available in stores.

Overall: D+
To be honest, I have maybe 7 EOS lip balms and I think Tangerine is the only one that is moisturizing (but it is marketed as medicated, go figure). I collected the rest primarily for the scent, and when the scent disappoints me... I don't really use it. Vanilla scent lovers will be very disappointed with this.
I should probably stop wasting money on EOS lip balms and buy some real lip balms, but I kind of like the packaging... Hmm

Would I recommend this?

Absolutely not.
