Lip Saviours: Carmex

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will be aware that I am a massive lover of Carmex products. I have been using their lip balms for years now and they never fail to soothe my lips even when they're as dry as the sahara. You will always find a Carmex lip balm in my handbag, no matter what!

A short while back I came home from work to find a surprise package of Carmex goodies had been posted through my door. This was totally unexpected and really put a smile on my face as I am such a big fan and can't get enough of their products.

I received a tub of the classic Carmex lip balm, a tube of Strawberry Carmex and a Carmex Moisture Plus in the shade 'Peach'.

Although I do love the classic lip balm, the tub style packaging has always been a little bit of an issue for me. It is so tiny and once the product gets to around half way down the tub, it becomes more and more difficult to pick up any product on your fingers without really digging in to it - which isn't the most hygienic thing either.

The tubes have always been a hit with me. I like the lipgloss style tube which makes application quick and easy with no fuss whatsoever. The smell of the strawberry lip balm is gorgeous and has that menthol scent infused into it which I love and just want to eat (not recommended!)

The moisture plus range is the most recent release from Carmex and you can read my full review here. These lipstick style applicatiors are fabulous and if you don't feel like wearing lipstick but want a little added colour on your lips then these are perfect. They give a sheer tint of colour and are super hydrating and moisturising - just like the rest of the Carmex range.

Have you tried any of the above products from Carmex? Which is your most used Carmex product?

Numera x

Although the products mentioned in this post were sent to me, this is my honest opinion - as always!


  1. I love Carmex, so soothing on my lips!!

  2. I used carmex and I found that when I would forget to use dried out my lips like 10x more than they were before I used it...I switched the Burt's Bees and I gotta say it's the best of all the lipbalms i've used ever!...have you tried it?
