Hey ladies,

Have any of you experienced this mold problem with your EOS Lip balm??  Not only have I had the mold problem, but I also broke out into a rash.  Be careful! This is just a heads up!

I guess that's what happens when a product is preservative free. It's unfortunate though...I won't use it any more.

I've never had the mold problem, mind you I have only ever bought one of these. I just dont like EOS products. I think they are all crap.

Yes; yuck! on Jan 25, 2016 @ 07:20 pm

I've had the mold problem, but have noticed that it only happens when the balm is getting down to the base. It's off-putting for sure. I haven't experienced any rashes using the product, in various flavours/scents, but I do find that multiple uses a day leaves my lips dry and flakey. Also off-putting. It's a shame because the shape of the EOS makes it so easy to find in my bag.

Eos not for me on Jan 25, 2016 @ 07:23 pm

I saw the news reports on this product and I don't know if there is a recall but the pictures of the victims were awful , their lips were like burned and blistered or really chapped

I haven't had any problems with the eos lipbalms. I've been buying them for years, for me and my nieces. No rash. No mold.
