Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm Review


Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm

The weather has been really awful lately and it is really taking it’s toll on my lips. To help combat this I have been using Carmex.  If you haven’t heard of this before, it is a lip balm which smooth’s, relieves and moisturises your lips. 

The Carmex bran has been around for years and years and this product is now available in different forms – a stick, tube or tin.  It also comes in a variety of flavours such as original, strawberry and cherry.

I really love this product.  It makes my lips feel really smooth and when it’s first applied they feel so fresh.  This is definitely a product I will continue to buy and is nothing like any other lip balms I have tried before.  The only downside is that I do have to re-apply it a few times during the day/evening, around 2-3 times.

I’ve heard that there was some press that this product has some bad chemicals in it. I don’t know if that’s true or not.. I’ve done some research and it seems that a different formula is made for different areas of the world.  A certain chemical is removed for Europe.  So, if you are thinking about buying this product you might want to take a look yourself and just make sure you’re happy to use it.

The carmex tubes are currently available at Superdrug for a bargain price of £1.25 (normal price is £2.69 but they are on offer at the moment).

What is your favourite lip balm?

    I used to love carmex so much! I have however switched to the Blistex range instead as they seem to have different lip care for different needs, I especially love their Intensive Moisturiser and their Relief Cream. They are a similar price to carmex too 🙂

    I genuinely had never tried Carmex until last month, and then I had to use my brothers ha!
    Actually loved it – although still don't own one myself, that will change 🙂

    thanks so much for the comments 🙂 i think carmex is the only lip brand i haven't tried. i currently have 2 different vaselines, 2 nivea and a blistex on the go. so far vaseline seems to be the best – my lips just seem to need constant moisture! have you tried vasseline, nivea or blistex? If so which is the best in your opinion? x
