Advertising is a powerful tool to get a new product on the market, and consumers are often tempted by the various tactics used by the marketing departments of manufacturers. A class action lawsuit was recently filed against EOS -- a lip balm manufacturer -- alleging the lip balm it claims to be healthy and healing is actually a dangerous product. The lawsuit says thousands of consumers nationwide, possibly also some in Texas, may have suffered adverse effects after using EOS lip balm.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff applied the lip balm immediately after purchasing it, but instead of the sensational smooth lips that were promised on the packaging material, her lips felt like sandpaper. Therefore, she applied more lip balm to achieve the smooth effect, but claims her lips became flaky, and the cracks started bleeding. She further alleges that she had to seek medical care when the skin surrounding her mouth developed a rash and started blistering. She contends that she endured the condition for approximately 10 days.
