Not Just For Lips Anymore...
I love this stuff to death! But I've limited my use to only when I truly need it. Whenever my lips get super dry, chapped, flaky, just GROSS, I use this for about 2 days straight, day and night, and my lips are back to being super soft.
I also use this on my face when needed. During the winter, I get rough patches of skin around my mouth/cheek area which gets flaky and tight. Not good when you need to wear foundation. I put this on my face at night wherever I have rough patches because the active ingredient in this is SALICYLIC ACID! Within about 3 days, applying about twice a day, the rough patches are completely gone. It doesn't clog my pores because of that main ingredient.
They have to get rid of that "For-Cold-Sores" though because it makes me feel uncomfortable popping this out in public, especially when I'm in the subway or bus. I obviously don't have a cold sore but that isn't going to deter people from thinking that. Bad marketing.
Carmex is the kind of product when you know you're having something going on with your lips and you need a remedy, Carmex is your product. It works, it truly does. Smells medicinal but hey, it's not trying to be fancy at all. Moisturizing lip balm that definitely heals cracked lips or if you're like me gets a dry patch during the winter.
This is the only lip balm I can live with because it moisturizes your lips extremely well. It works for cold sores but it's great on chapped lips! The little thing might be pricey for some but it last a long time!! It does get annoying having to rub your finger but just make sure your the only one who uses it and sanitize your hands before and after! But overall amazing product!
I love carmex its great for helping u get rid of dry chapped lips but I rather the carmex in
the tube and not in the jar. The reason why I like the tube is that you dont have to put your fingers in the jar and contaminate it.. its not very sanitary unless u always make sure u wash your hands before u use it and really who has time for that.. So carmex is a great product but go with the tube.
great for peeling
i use carmex for one thing only... and thats when my lips are peeling and i cant control it... i apply a thick coat and let it sit for a few minutes then rub it off and its like i have a new set of soft lips... the only thing i dont like is the smell ant rupungent taste eww
Love the Tingles!
I love Carmex! It's great in the winter and any other time of the year. Not only does it protect your lips but it also gives it a shine that I absolutely love. I also like the tingly feeling my lips get when I apply it. It's like I can feel my lips healing.
