Lip Care: Carmex

 
 
Hey guys! 
I hope you are all well. It's crazy how fast time flies and I really can't believe it's nearly April! 2 more months untill my holiday- whoop whoop! 
Anyways, today I thought to write about this little miracle you can literally find in any drugstore or your local supermarket. Yes, as you can tell it's Carmex lip balms. I bought one of these few months ago and I haven't had chapped lips ever since! I have seen this product for years and years and everyone was talking how good it is. But I was too much in to my Burt's Bees lip balms, so I wasn't intrested at all. But after noticing that my lips still dry and chapped even after balm application I thought I need to change my loved Burt's Bees in to something else, as by the looks of it they have changed the formula which didn't worked for me. So I thought it's time to get my hands on Carmex. The first tube of mine was cherry scent balm. Omg, this smells amazing! At first I was using it just because of it's scent and how plumpy it makes my lips look. It literally looks like you have A LOT fuller lips. Once you apply it on, it gives you this funny tingling. After my first application I was like 'Omg, what the heck is going on? Why does it feel so weird?' But you just get used to it. Once I finished my first tube I went to my Superdrug and got them in strawberries scent and original one. I know they do a lot more flavours, but it was out of stock so I had to satisfy my needs with what i've got. 

 



Consistency. Balms in tube has thick, creamy texture and glides on easily. Tined balms are more like vaseline type. If it's cold and you are using it outside, it could get dificult to get the product on your fingers if you not warm it up in your hands before application.
I love applying tubed balms over my lipsticks, specialy pink and nude shade. It gives gorgous shine and makes my lips look much fuller. The original balms in the jar is great remedy for a very dry and chapped lips, I tend to apply loads before bed and in the morning my lips feels super soft.


 
 
Packaging. I personally prefer the jar, as you don't use the product as much as the tube ones. Product being in the jar means you have to use your fingers to apply it, which is a bit messy and not very hygenic, so the tube is much better on this one, but you use a lot more product and finish it much quicker. So it's kind of 50/50.



 
 
I use Carmex not only for my lips, I will use it on any dry patches on my face or my cuticles to give that needed moisture. It's great product for a great price. Balms cost just over £2, some shops sell it even cheaper. So grab yourself one, if you haven't tried it yet!

  1. I'm a massive fan of the tubs of carmex! I have used it for years and wont try anything else, at one point I had about 8 tubs floating round in every handbag, make up bag, pocket and car! I had them everywhere and I can't honestly say I've ever finished one as I have normally lost them before I get a chance.

  4. Carmex is amazing and it's too bad it's not as popular in Europe as it is in the US. Great post though :)
