Carmex has been known for their high quality lip care products, and now they are excited to announce that they have extended their line of products to include skin care!
The brand new Carmex Healing Lotion is made from a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel. Ingredients include aloe and vitamin E. The Carmex Healing Cream is also made using a patent pending process hat delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin. It is intended for any dry skin area, to include hands, feet, elbows, and knees. It is highly concentrated so a minimal amount is needed to repair dry, rough, or cracked skin.
To celebrate the launch of the new skin care products, Carmex sent me this amazing kit with the Healing Lotion and Healing Cream to review. Plus, I got to sample their lip care line!
Carmex Healing Lotion: I found that the lotion lived up to its promise of quick absorption with no greasy residue. I was not overly pleased with the scent. It smelled almost like my daughter's scented plastic toys and was artificial (perhaps because of the packaging?). The scent, however, was very faint and I could only smell it when I put my skin right to my nose. My skin did feel noticeably smoother after application and I will be keeping it handy this winter to help keep my hands and body moisturized.
Carmex Healing Cream: This product also absorbed quickly and was non-greasy. It is designed to be used on very dry skin so I tried it on my feet. It worked great and they felt really smooth afterward. I enjoyed the scent of the cream much more than the lotion. It was still faint, which I prefer because of my allergies. The cream was thicker than the lotion and did require less of the product.
Both of the products were in adequate packaging. The self-standing tubes released the cream/lotion with minimal effort, but there were no spills. The plastic is strong enough that I do not expect it to split or wear easily. Each of the products retails for $5.99 and I find this price to be very reasonable given the quality of the product. I was not a Carmex user prior to this, but after my experience with the skin and lip products, I am now!
Buy it here: Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing cream can be found at Walgreens stores, walgreens.com, drugstore.com, and Amazon.com.
