I was recently accepted to be a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and I'm very excited and thankful for the opportunity. My first task for the Blog Squad is to review the brand, spanking new Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream. Again, I was excited as soon as I opened the box because Carmex and I have a very long relationship, starting when I was a teenager. That little yellow jar was always a must-have! In middle and high school my friends and I would always pass a jar around, because someone always had one, and someone always seemed to be out of it (tragedy!).
As an adult, I was happy to seee that Carmex is expanding it's product line to include lotions and creams. I've always counted on the soothing, healing action of the lip balms, and now I can have that same feeling in my hand and body lotion. I was not disppointed one little bit when I tried the Healing Lotion on my hands. As soon as I opened the cap, the familiar Carmex smell wafted up and reminded me of those middle school days. I tried a little at first, just to get a feel for it, but wanted more as soon as I started rubbing it in. It absorbed quickly and wasn't at all greasy, but that little dab I started with wasn't enough for my dry hands. I might have overdone it the second time around, but even with a lot of the lotion, it still absorbed quickly! I was in love. Again.
Should I gush about this lotion any more, or do you have the general idea? The Healing Cream is also wonderful - perfect for those rough elbows and dry feet that will no doubt make appearances this winter. Keep the rough-patch-ugliness at bay with this cream - you won't be sorry!
Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream are available now at Walgreens stores, Walgreens.com and drugstore.com. The retail price for each will be around $5.99.
