CARMEX review and giveaway




I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and recently got the chance to do a review of the
Carmex Healing Cream and the Carmex Healing Lotion.

My first thought about the products was what is the difference?


Well the Carmex Healing Lotion is for everyday use to soothe and protect your skin.
The Carmex  Healing Cream helps to repair your driest roughest skin.That would be my elbows.

So what do I think of the products?
First my thoughts on  the Carmex Healing  lotion.
Sometimes when I use lotions on my skin they can really bother my skin. I do not have any problems with this using the Carmex healing lotion.
The lotion is not runny so when you squeeze the tube it comes out nice. So it is easy to get just the amount you like.
The lotion spreads nice and does not leave your skin all tacky.
The smell is nice and not over powering so both male and female can use the product.

The Carmex Healing Cream is a thicker product than the lotion and rubs in nicely on the really dry patches on my skin.
The Healing Cream like the lotion has a nice light scent that is not overpowering.

I also got two travel size containers of both products. I want to mention that because of the bold yellow coloring on the containers it is easy to find them in my purse. That is a big plus.

You can buy both products at Walgreens and CVS the full size tubes are $5.99 and the small ones are $.99
Great stocking stuffer for everyone.

The product and the amount are the same but we are eliminating 20% of the plastic from the jar bottom. This will save 35 tons of plastic from being wasted and from being shipped so less fuel will be used
