Carmex Skin Product Review and Giveaway

I am a member of the Carmex® Blog Squad and I am thrilled about it!  I absolutely love Carmex lip products and I knew that this would give me the opportunity to try some new Carmex products and to blog about the things I love.  For years, I have used Carmex lip products to protect my lips from the winter cold.  I love the way it feels and the way it helps my lips!  Well, I'm thrilled to let you know that Carmex is now making skin protection products. Carmex® Healing Lotion and Carmex® Healing Cream are the skin  products I am reviewing for them right now.

Carmex® Healing Lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel.  You can use it anywhere skin feels dry!  It contains rich, healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E, which nourish and moisturize the skin.  It absorbs fast and has a light, pleasant scent.  You can use it daily to help protect your skin and keep dryness away. 

My thoughts:  I really like the feel of this lotion!  It is not greasy and the scent is not overpowering at all.  I have issues with dry skin, especially during the fall and winter.  I have been applying this Carmex Healing Lotion every day to my legs and my elbows and I am truly amazed at they are not dry and rough.  I like the tube that the lotion comes in, because it is easy to handle and just the right size to use at home, or to keep in your purse.  You do NOT have to drown your body in this lotion.  A little dab really does go a long way.  The cost is $5.99 for a 5.5 oz tube, and although it might seem a little pricey at first, it isn't.  Since a small amount is needed, it does go a long way, and since it works, I'm happy to pay that for it.  (I've already purchased some as stocking stuffers for my parents and my hubby...SHHHH!)

Carmex® Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin, especially your hands, feet, elbows and knees.  It contains 9 healing ingredients that penetrate and help repair your very dry, rough or cracked skin.  It is concentrated, so you only need to use a small amount.  Like the lotion, the cream absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel, and it has a light, pleasant scent.

My thoughts:  After giving the lotion a try, I had a great feeling about this cream.  I was not disappointed.  My feet get so rough, and when I applied the Carmex Healing Cream to them, they just felt better.  I have been using the Healing Cream overnight, and my feet are softening up, and they are no longer snagging my hose.  I have purchased a second tube for my husband to put on his VERY dry feet, and he is pleased with the results so far.  The price is $5.99 for a 4 ounce tube, but remember, a little goes a long way!

The wonderful people at Carmex sent me an awesome Healing Kit that was full of wonderful skin and lip products!  The retail value of this kit is over $52 and I am thrilled to tell you that I have one to giveaway as well!  This would be a wonderful Christmas present for you, teachers, family members, or friends.
