Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Popular Lip Balm Company Alleges Users Suffered Horrible Rashes & Blistering
These beauty lawsuits keep on coming!
EOS lip balms have been promoted by some of the biggest stars in the world, including Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian, but a new lawsuit alleges they have been causing adverse allergic reactions for many users.
Customers have reported redness, rashes, blistering, and extreme dryness after use.
A class-action lawsuit has been filed by renowned lawyer Mark Geragos representing several women, including Rachel Cronin.
The lawsuit states:
"Within hours [of applying EOS lip balm], [Rachel Cronin's] lips became substantially dry and coarse, what Ms. Cronin describes as feeling like "sandpaper," causing her to apply more of the balm on her lip to achieve the results of becoming "sensationally smooth." Ms. Cronin's lips did not become smooth, and began severely cracking on the edges causing flaking and bleeding from the cracks. Ms. Cronin was in severe shock and panic. [Her] condition consisted for approximately 10 days."
