Lip Treatments -Carmex -Lip Balm

on 11/2/2018 10:44:00 AM


This is my favorite lip balm. I apply it every night before bed and it keeps my lips feeling nice and moisturized. Most importantly, it doesn't cause breakouts or clogged pores around my mouth like a lot of other lip balms I've used. On the other hand, I'm not a fan of the scent and minty feeling but I'm willing to overlook these things if a product works. It's also super cheap which is a plus.

Lip Treatments -Carmex -Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms

This is a creamy tinted lip balm with reasonably good color payoff in a cute slimline tube. I have it in peach and pink (just finished the peach actually), and I enjoy both. Feels comfortable on the lips, adds soft shine and color, and has that great classic Carmex scent and flavor--what's not to like? I haven't seen these in a while, so they might have been discontinued. Ah well, beyond the classics (such as regular Carmex), I rarely buy the same lip balm twice anyway--so many lip balms, so little time. But I would buy this again if I weren't so greedy for the new.

Lip Treatments -Carmex -Original

on 5/15/2018 10:42:00 AM


I have the classic chapstick version of this and I’m SO in love with it. It provides incredible moisture to my lips and I’m obsessed with that tingly and fresh feeling it gives to the lips. The only reason I don’t give this product 5 stars is because or some minor weird texture that stays on when the product is almost fully absorbed by the lips (which only happens at the very end of the day after I put a big quantity of it).

Lip Treatments -Carmex -Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balm

on 4/29/2018 6:24:00 PM

The ingredient list looks great, so why do I hate this lipbalm?

PROS: Taste.

CONS: It's solid and needs to be warmed up and it is not lasting moisture at all. In fact, the more I use this, the drier my lips get.
