Carmex Healing Cream and Healing Lotion Product review and Giveaway!

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review two wonderful products from Carmex.  Carmex, known, for the salve for chapped lips and cold sores was invented in 1936.  Last year, Carmex 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 CVS, and Walmart.  

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,pleasant 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) Full size Carmex Healing Lotion, one (1) full size Carmex Healing Cream, as well as Carmex Healing lotion and cream in travel size.

One lucky winner will receive the above package from Carmex!

The contest will end at 12:01 am on November 18.  Thanks so much for entering!
Although Carmex provided me with the product to review, my opinions are all my own.
