Carmex Healing Cream and Lotion Review & GIVEAWAY!!

Monday, October 25, 2010
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review two new products from Carmex.  Carmex, known, for the salve for chapped lips and cold sores was invented in 1936.  They recently released the new Carmex Healing Cream, and Carmex Healing Lotion. 

The Healing Cream is used to help repair the driest, roughest skin, and the Healing Lotion, is for everyday use to soothe and protect dry skin.  They retail for $5.99 and can be found at Walgreen's, and 

I spent the last week using both the cream and lotion.  The Healing Cream comes in a 4oz tube.  It has an easy to open/close, flip-up, snap-close top and, like the tube says, repairs your driest, roughest skin.  This was a perfect time for this product as my knuckles were getting quite dried out from the recent change in weather.  I applied this in the morning, and I first noticed a really nice scent, nothing too extreme, not flowery, nor manly. I didn't get the typical greasiness, you find in some lotions, it was just cool and soothing. 

I used the healing lotion, in the evening,  This also has an easy to open/close flip-up, snap-close top.  The Healing Lotion is in a 5.5 oz. tube, and is for daily use to soothe and protect dry skin.  I primarily used this in the evening, before sleeping.  The lotion was absorbed quickly into my skin, and again, felt cool and soothing.  Again, no lingering greasy feeling. 

Overall, after a week, actually less, my hands feel great!  The excessive dryness is resolved. I will continue to use the healing lotion, throughout the winter, and the cream as needed. 

Carmex has been most generous in setting aside a Carmex kit for one of my followers. 

The kit will include:

One (1) Carmex Healing Lotion, one (1) Carmex Healing Cream, as well as Carmex Moisture Plus sticks, and a flavored collection of their core products in tube, stick and jar form.
It comes in a really cute black carrying case, which you can hang up.  It has a black and white polka dot lining inside with lots of pockets and zipper compartments. 

One lucky winner will receive the above package from Carmex, which has a value of $52.32!

The contest will end at 6:00 pm on Monday evening, November 1, 2010.

Thanks, as this is my first product review and giveaway.

Although Carmex provided me with the product to review, my opinions are all my own. 

Good Luck!
