As we head into warm weather (please no more snow!), I am also concerned about how my skin looks after a long, dry winter. I was so excited to test out 2 new products from Carmex. I remember how my Grandfather used Carmex and it was a staple in my sister’s purse – always! So, I have always been around the Carmex brand. I was thrilled when they sent me some body lotion product to try.
I received a full-sized tube of Carmex Hydrating Lotion and a full-sized tube of Carmex Healing Cream. I have always loved the way Carmex heals my lips, so I couldn’t wait to test out these two products.
First, the smell. There is a faint smell of Carmex, which is a great smell. It is not overpowering, but maybe for a guy it may have too much of a scent. After a few hours of wearing the lotion, there was no lingering smell. So perhaps it would suit a man’s need for soothing and creamy lotion.
Second, both products are easy to apply and work into the skin quickly. I didn’t feel anything other than a layer of protection. Some lotions can leave a greasy feel, but I didn’t notice it with either of the products. I used the Healing cream on my legs, which were pretty dry. After a few days of using the product I could actually see a difference. I tend to put on lotion after my shower, which helps to trap in the moisture also. The Healing cream has increased levels of lanolin, which mimics the skin’s natural layer to maximize healing. It also contains pertrolatum and allantoin to soften rough skin. The Hydrating Lotion is loaded with vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to soothe skin and deliver serious hydration, without greasiness. You can pick up your own lotions at many local drug stores. The retail price is around $5.99 each.
I am excited to see Carmex, a well-loved and well-known brand, expand into this market. It just seems like a natural for them to offer healing protection for more than your lips! As a member of the Carmex blog squad, I also received a cool, limited edition Carmex bright yellow sweatshirt. I wore it to the store last week and a clerk asked where I got it! She was a big Carmex fan also. So, Carla, here’s the review and giveaway!!
