Carmex Healing Cream and Hydrating Lotion Review and Giveaway


Carmex Giveaway

Despite the recent snow storms, spring is actually here. I know many people are still running their heat, completely drying out their skin. Here in Phoenix it’s been relatively mild, but with the heat and the crazy highs and lows for temperatures dry skin is a topic of conversation. As a Carmex Blog Squad member I received a complimentary Healing Cream and Hydrating Lotion, along with a bright yellow hoodie. And while it’s already too warm for a hoodie, the cream and lotion have been used daily. BabyGirl loves the smell, too!

Carmex is one of those products that evokes memories of childhood. The light menthol scent reminds me of those little pots of lip balm I grew up with. I actually still have a few of the glass pots from high school. Why, I don’t really know (but don’t call hoarders!). It’s just … the memories. It reminds me of going to the beach with my friends, laughing about silly things, and sleepovers during summer.

The same healing qualities that help your lips now help repair even the driest skin, absorbing quickly with a clean, fresh scent.

When the Carmex Healing Cream and Carmex Hydrating Lotion first came out I shared them with you. There are so many things I like about both the cream and the lotion, but the scent is definitely top of the list. Most body products are either too girly or very masculine. With these, it’s a nice middle-of-the-road scent so anyone in the house can use it. And now, I get to share them again and help you get your skin ready for shorts and tank tops and summer dresses. Even though it’s great for the family, you don’t have to share if you don’t want to!

Carmex Hydrating Lotion

Microemulsification. It’s the technical term for how we are able to make a hydrating lotion that is so moisturizing yet feels so greaseless. It is soothing, long-lasting and perfect for everyday use. We super-blend the high-quality ingredients of our exclusive formula so that deep hydration immediately soaks into damaged skin. You won’t feel a hint of greasiness, even right after you smooth it onto rough trouble spots.

  • Formulas with Vitamin E aid moisturization of dry skin, helping to soften and heal it.
  • Our Hydrating Lotion uses aloe at a concentration of 200 times what you’d find in an aloe plant, helping prevent dryness and promote healing, plus soothing irritated skin.

Carmex Skin Care Prize Pack (value $15.00) – Full size Healing Lotion and Full size Healing Cream.

I moved to Skokie,Il from Memphis, TN in December.Needless to say the harsh winter left my skin extremely dry. I also suffer from psoriasis on my elbows. I picked up a sample of Carmex Healing cream at the local drug store. To my amazement it not only relieved my dry skin but actually improved my psoriasis
I am looking forward to my first Chicagoland Summer. I will keep my carmex around because I am sure it will come in handy for sun related skin issues. I love this stuff.
