Carmex Lip Balm


Pucker up buttercups: daily care for your lips should be right along with skincare as the skin on your lips are very thin and require lots of TLC (care for them as you would your eyes.) My lips are very sensitive and the past few months it seems that any allergic reaction to who knows what - blows them up bigger than what they are. Boy did the split and crack; they swell up and no one wants to see chapped lips (I sure don't!) Luckily, my Carmex reps came to my rescue with an assortment of lip goodies when my lips swelled so bad, that I had to miss out on a few events.

I love Carmex ($1.59 - retailers nationwide) for everyday use to hydrate, heal and protect my lips; I'm a fan of the jar formula over 20 years especially during the rough cold season. Carmex has worked to protect lips for over 77 years and now has a lineup in an assortment of flavors (regular, vanilla, pomegranate, cherry and strawberry) and in tubes, jars, stick and click sticks (check out their limited edition designs, which I also love, here.) I love the jars during the summer at the beach; I throw it right into my beach cooler to soothe and cool my lips after sun exposure - and Carmex now offers formulas with sun protection!

I love the lip-tingling feeling I get each time I apply Carmex. I don't have to constantly re-apply and it provides long-lasting hydration. Let's check out my Carmex care lip love:
