You know those beauty products that are almost iconic? The ones that have been around for years and you just don’t really think twice about them? Well Carmex is one of those. I remember using Carmex for chapped lips years ago, and rather viewed it as the same product in the little jar with that menthol scent.
But guess what? Carmex has grown up and gotten a little sexier as well. There are new products which I have been checking out and love particularly the new lip balm sticks, as well as the classics.
According to The Little Lip Book, “The function of all surface tissues on the body, including the lips, is to protect the body from the outside environment. Such protection can only be accomplished if lips are kept healthy.”1 Each one of the medicated Carmex® Lip Balms helps to keep lips healthy, because they are formulated with petrolatum, lanolin, cacao (cocoa) seed butter and other protection ingredients, which also keep lips feeling soft and smooth. Medicated Carmex® Lip Balms are available in a jar, tube, or stick in flavors such as strawberry, cherry and original. Also, just because it is winter doesn’t mean you should forego sun protection, so reach for Carmex® Lip Balm Sticks, which provide SPF 15 sun protection.
As an alternative to the medicated products, try NEW Carmex Comfort Care™ Lip Balm, formulated with natural Colloidal Oatmeal and cold pressed fruit oil to restore and maintain moisture in the lips with their soothing and softening properties. This comfort-enriched™, natural lip balm is available in a variety of fruity flavors such as Mixed Berry, Sugar Plum and Watermelon Blast, and is perfect for use year-round to help restore your lips natural beauty!
