When Carmex launched their cherry flavoured lip balm a couple of years ago I couldn't wait to give it a taste so I was happy to get my hands on the latest mint flavour release. Carmex's distinctive tingle sensation is even more noticeable with the mint version.
I can be very guilty of neglecting my lips and they chap very badly but the camphor and beeswax in Carmex soothes them and the menthol tingle makes it feel like they're actually being treated. I find Carmex works almost as well as Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to heal cracked lips but tastes far better, and is more convenient to lug around in your handbag. The added bonus is the SPF 15 which is a must for me as I can even get freckles on my lips - not pretty.
I prefer the tube to the pot as it's more hygienic. The consistency of the balm again reminds me of 8 Hour Cream but it's not as thick or sticky.
I'm sure the strawberry balm is just as delicious as the cherry so I'm looking forward to trying that one too!
Have you tried Carmex? What flavours would you like them to release next? (I'd like to taste a lemon one!)
The best places to find Carmex are Boots or Superdrug for around £2.65.
