Carmex - Review and Giveaway


As a member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I was given the opportunity to review their Healing Cream and Healing Lotion. Carmex, famous for its lip balms, has been used by my family frequently. The teenage girls like to wear the lip balms on their lips and my husband has even put Original Carmex on the heels of his feet to soften them.

I'm no stranger to Carmex myself.  I have very dry skin, with rough patches in some areas and both products have been beneficial.  Both are specially formulated to heal and repair even the driest skin - no matter what the weather has in store. 

With increased levels of lanolin, Carmex Healing Cream mimics your skin's natural lipid layer to maximize healing, while petrolatum and allantoin soften rough skin and aid in moisturization.  Carmex Healing Lotion is loaded with vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to soothe skin and deliver sious hydration, without any greasiness.  The Carmex Healing Lotion, with daily application, helps protect skin and keep dryness away. The rich healing ingredients of Aloe and Vitamin E nourish and moisturize skin. The Carmex Healing Cream has nine healing ingredients that penetrate and help repair very dry, rough, or cracked skin. Neither are greasy and don't leave white residue on your skin when rubbed in.  I don't notice a real difference in either product as far as effectiveness or how each works different than the other.  Both have the same smell and close to the same consistency, but the Healing Cream is in a smaller tube. 


Everyone in my household, from the husband and kids to myself, grab the Carmex Healing Lotion and the Carmex Healing Cream everyday and apply it to our skin. They help keep our skin soft and protect our skin from the cold weather that's present.  When my elbows start to get very rough patches, which they do often, I apply the Healing Cream to them and it helps with the scaliness and dryness.  Both products have the same scent, which I can't quite explain, but it's neither too feminine or too masculine. Since everyone in the household is using the Healing Cream and Healing Lotion, I can safely say that they're well liked in my family.

Win It!

One person will win Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream.
