Carmex Skin Care Review & Giveaway


Carmex is a name that I have known since I was little. My mom used it, so I used it. As a member of Carmex Blog Squad Team I was lucky enough to receive the chance to try the new Carmex Skin Care Line. The Skin Care Line includes Healing Lotion and Healing Cream. For me to do the review, Carmex sent me a Carmex Kit that included one tube of the Healing Lotion, one tube of the Healing Cream, 3 Carmex Moisture Plus sticks and a flavored collection of their core products in tube, stick, and jar. On top of that they have one of the kits reserved for one of my lucky readers that wins the giveaway that is below this review.

Here is some info that Carmex shared with me:

For over 70 years people have come to love the healing power of Carmex lip balms. Finally, Carmex Skin Care is here with a new solution to heal, soothe and moisturize your dry skin.

Carmex Healing Lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel. You can use it anywhere your skin feels dry. Daily use will help protect skin and keep dryness away. Rich healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E, nourish and moisturize skin. It absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel and has a light pleasant scent.

Carmex Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest roughest skin such as your hands, feet, elbows, and knees. It has 9 healing ingredients penetrate and help repair your very dry rough skin. It is Concentrated so that you can get away with using a small amount. Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel and has a light pleasant scent.

Both can be found at Walgreens, Walgreens.com, and drugstore.com and the retail price is $5.99 for each product.




What’s My Opinion?

I used both the Healing Cream and Lotion for 5 days. I suffer from extremely dry spots that come on my hands from time to time and it usually takes a lot of moisturizer to get it smooth again. I used the Healing Cream on my driest spots on my hands and feet and after 5 days see an improvement. They feel soft again and not coarse like it was from the beginning of the review. It was not greasy, but I noticed that it makes my skin feel like silk after you put it on. I also like the scent of the Cream, it is very light and does not overwhelm you. I definitely see myself making this a staple in my skin care.

The Healing Lotion had the same light scent that did not take over your air space. I used this everyday and liked how quickly it absorbed. It did not leave a greasy residue behind that made you feel like you needed to shower after you put it on. I did use the lotion several times a day on my arms and hands, and like the way my skin felt after I put it on.

Overall, I was generally impressed with both the Healing Lotion and Cream. They both were not greasy feeling and made my skin feel great. I could see myself using this product long term. The packaging is simple with the classic Carmex yellow and red coloring but still you can tell that it is not your usual Carmex lip product.
