Love this stuff, but I do use this a little differently. Some background info - My skin is average. It's a little dry, a little oily, a few black heads, some visible pores, a couple zits every once in a while... With makeup on, it looks like I have pretty good skin. I love mixing this stuff in with another foundation! I started doing this because I had bought the wrong shade (too dark) so I used this to sort of water it down and lighten the color a bit. Worked great. And an added bonus, it gives my skin just the right amount of glow! It doesn't look oily, just healthy. (Now though I use it with a foundation shade that matches, and it doesn't change the color.. so it works either way!) Since I've given up tanning (I mean really, being pale is better than a ton of wrinkles later or worse.. CANCER!) I feel like my skin looked a little.. blah, for lack of a better term. This stuff makes my skin look pretty again. I will always continue to mix this in with whatever foundation I use from here on out! I love it!

I almost never do reviews. I think its silly to give a so-so review, it only makes sense to me to tell people if I love something or hate it. Especially if I love it! And I do LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. A little background info on my hair - I have wavy, almost curly shoulder length hair. It's fine and SUPER frizzy. Color-treated and very dry. I always use an anti-frizz serum (right now its Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum). No matter how I style my hair (blowout, curly, wavy, up-do's...) my hair just turns out better when I have this in! It's shinier, smoother, bouncier, less frizzy and so much more manageable. It's thicker than a normal mousse, so don't go crazy with it. You only need a little bit. For me, it's kind of expensive, but definitely worth it. I never want to live without this! Buy some ASAP.

I've been using this for a year now, and I will NEVER switch. I've tried probably hundreds of lip balms and none of them worked. Carmex has made my lips so soft! They never peel or get cracked anymore. I cannot live without this stuff. I have a stick with me at all times. In my makeup bag, my purse, my car, my nightstand, my work bag. Its the best! I used to not love the smell, but now I associate it with relief from my dry lips and I love it. It's sort of comforting. There's not a lot I would take the time to write a review (I'm really picky) but this stuff is worth it. I do like the stick formula better than the jar or tube. This kind goes on and stays on better. I put it on under all of my lipsticks and lipglosses and they go on so smooth and don't sink into the fine lines of my lips anymore. THIS STUFF IS THE BEST!
