CLOSED ~ I am a Carmex Blog Squad Member ~ Review & Giveaway!


I was chosen to be a Carmex Blog Squad Member and I am thrilled. Why? Because I am already a loyal Carmex user. I have used Original Carmex for years to ward off cold sores. The minute I feel that little itch on my lip, I bring out the Carmex and it helps soothe and heal any cold sore that appears.

I also use the Carmex Stick to keep my lips nice and moist during the winter. My lips get really bad during the winter so I need something that works and I have always found that Carmex does the trick.

Now Carmex has some new items: Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream. The Healing Lotion is great for everyday use. It goes on smooth and coats the skin well. I really liked it. It worked on my dry hands and kept them moist. It also worked on my legs which is fantastic because I get crocodile legs when it gets cold and this helped.

The Healing Cream was thicker and really worked well on my dry elbows and feet. What I liked about both the Healing Cream and Lotion is that they are creamy but not greasy at all. They both left my skin soft and feeling moisturized. Both the lotion and cream smell like the lip balm. It's a clean scent, not too heavy or perfumy. I liked it because already use the lip balm.

I really liked the lotion and cream but I loved the Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm with a tint! The Moisture Plus comes in Clear, Sheer Pink, Sheer Peach. I rarely wear lipstick so this was perfect for me. I love that I get a little bit of color and my lips are protected.

The other items are great as well. Hubby loves the Carmex sticks. He also is loving the Healing Cream. His skin gets more dry than mine!

I have one the Carmex tubes in my purse, car and office. And, of course, I am a huge fan of the original Carmex in a jar. I know I will be using this when those nasty cold sores pop up! Boo! Overall, I would recommend any of these Carmex products to anyone. If you haven't tried them, you should especially now that winter is a coming!! At least I am going to be protected!!

I got this wonderful travel bag for my participation in the Carmex Squad and Carmex was fantastic enough to give me an extra one to give away to one lucky reader! YAY! The total value of the kit is $52.32 and includes (2) Carmex Healing Lotions, one (1) regular size and (1) travel size, one (1) Carmex Healing Cream, three (3) Carmex Moisture Plus sticks, and an assortment of flavored lip balms in tubs, sticks, and jars.

Who doesn't need this?? You can buy Carmex products at Walgreens stores, walgreens.com and drugstore.com. The Healing Lotion and Cream are only $5.99 and that's a great deal to have soft skin! So if you want one of these fantastic kits, enter to win! Good Luck!!
