EOS Lip Balms Being Sued For Leaving Customers' Lips A Blistery Mess

January 15, 2016 2 min read

The wildly popular egg-shaped lip balm, EOS, has found itself in a little bit of hot water. The brand that has been touted by the likes of Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian has left some customers with less than desirable results. Rachel Cronin has filed a class action lawsuit claiming it caused a "severe reaction." This reaction included   "severe rashes, bleeding, blistering, cracking and loss of pigmentation." screen-shot-2016-01-13-at-10-27-27-pm Cronin claims that within just a few hours of applying the lip balm, her lips felt like "sandpaper" so she applied it again. It was then that her "lips started cracking, flaking and bleeding, creating blisters and rashes which lasted 10 days." [bctt tweet="EOS Lip Balms Being Sued For Leaving Customers' Lips A Blistery Mess"] lipslips2 Mark Geragos, the lawyer who filed the suit, is seeking damages and corrected advertising and formulation. 1452696370-screen-shot-2016-01-13-at-144433 EOS has responded to the accusations in the lawsuit with the following statement:
"We firmly believe this lawsuit is without merit. Our products are made with the highest quality ingredients and meet or exceed all safety and quality standards set out by our industry and validated by rigorous testing conducted by an independent lab. The health and well-being of our customers is our top priority and millions of satisfied customers use our products every day, many of whom take the time to share their experiences with us."
It will be interesting to see how this plays out! What do you think of the story? Do you think the company should be held accountable for this reaction or do you think one should just discontinue use and call it a day?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
