A class-action lawsuit claims the popular lip balm by EOS causes skin to crack, bleed and blister, according to WGN.

The plaintiff in the suit, Rachael Cronin, said, within hours of applying the balm, her lips felt like “sandpaper.”

So, she applied more.

As a result, Cronin said her lips started cracking, flaking and bleeding, creating blisters and rashes, which lasted 10 days.

The suit, filed by Mark Geragos, asks for damages and demands corrective advertising.

On Wednesday night, EOS took to social media to say they believe the lawsuit is “without merit.”
