Lip Treatments -Carmex -Lip Balm

on 7/15/2018 5:32:00 PM


I always come back to this. Its the best best best lip product and i never want to be without it. Ive used this for 10 years and nothing works better. Ive tried burts bees nivea everything under the sun and this beats everyrhing.

Initial application is liquidy and thin but also goopey in a good way. It has a tingling feeling which i like. Itll sink in within minutes and makes my lips look healthy and just normal. It isnt sticky and does not stay slippery once it sets. I dont need to apply a million times like the other lip balms. It has a good smell and just overall what i look for in a lip product. I can wear this and let it set and put lip liner on and go on with my day. I dont need to worry about my lips feeling nasty or it flaking or having to reapply it again in 20 minutes. Burts bees is oily feeling and i get dry again so fast. Id always repurchase this til i die. Lol def try it out if you havent. To each is own so if youre like me and you like to leave your lipbalm in the car this ones the way to since the stick type melts.

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.
