I feel honored to be part of the Carmex Blog Squad. I've used their products for years and love them. I also find the company to be extremely friendly and they really seem to care about us, the consumers. Old-fashioned quality with up-to-date innovation. Perfect!
The other day I got a wonderful package and inside found an adorable black travel bag filled to the brim with Carmex products. I felt like a kid at Christmas. And the good news is that they are offering the same kit to my readers, so please enter and best of luck to all!
The total value of the kit is $52.32 and includes: One large tube of Carmex Healing Lotion, one large tube of Carmex Healing Cream along with Carmex Moisture Plus sticks and a flavored collection of their core products in tube, stick and jar form!
The featured products for this first review are the NEW Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream. These sell for $5.99 each and can be found at Walgreen's, walgreens.com and drugstore.com.
I love hand and body lotions, love to have moisturized soft skin, especially when the weather is cold or dry. My hands tend to get dry from work, painting, cooking, gardening, do-it-yourself projects, so this package was definitely a blessing. I think I've tried just about every cream or lotion I could get my "hands" on and I can say honestly that this is one of the best. I have some really dry areas, even a calloused area on my index finger. I decided to use that as an experiment. I applied the Carmex healing cream to it every night before I went to bed and I can honestly say that no other cream smoothed or soothed my skin like this one. I also moisturized my arms, legs, elbows, knees and hands with very good results. My skin felt healthier overall.
The healing lotion has rich healing ingredients including Aloe and Vitamin E to nourish and moisturize. It's non-greasy and daily use will help protect your skin. The healing cream can be used for your driest skin and has 9 healing ingredients to help repair rough or cracked areas.
Both formulas are great for arms, legs, elbows, knees, and hands. The lotion is a bit thinner and the cream is for those who like a thicker formula, but I really enjoy both of them. I tend to use the cream before I go to bed. Both formulas absorb really easily and left my skin feeling soft and healed. The scent is reminiscent of Carmex lip balm which I really like, and, to me, it has a cooling and warm smell combined. I really like it as I find it a light and soothing pleasant scent.
