Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm in Mint

Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm in Mint £2.69

With the weather slowly getting colder and colder, it's important to moisturise and keep our skin and lips hydrated. A good brand to use, as I've heard, is Carmex. The only product I've ever tried from them is this one, which is in liquid form kept in a squeeze tube. I got the one in mint, and believe me when I say that it is very minty! It smells good but I'm afraid the taste isn't all that amazing. It has that very artificial and chemical taste to it which I really don't like. However, it does really soothe your dried and chapped lips. It is also very moisturising except you're left with very greasy lips so I really wouldn't suggest using this under other lip products (i.e. lipsticks). I mean, you can get away with it if you prep your lips a few minutes beforehand but I wouldn't apply lipstick straight away after I've used this. 

I think it's a fairly good lip balm but I'm not a big fan of the squeeze tube so I'm probably going to try out the ones in lipstick form next time. Oh and the other thing that I find with this is that, whenever you stop using it, you end up with really chapped lips again. So you'll have to use it constantly, which is kind of annoying but what can you do, eh? Have you tried any Carmex products, what's your thoughts? x

  1. I've never really liked carmex in a tube, I use it in a pot and find it's a lot less sticky and keeps your lips moisturised for much longer! It can be a bit annoying sticking your finger in the pot but you can definitely feel it working!x

  2. ive only ever tried the ones in the tins. but yeah, i heard that chapstick is "addicting" like if you stop using it your lips become chapped - which is a bit upsetting.
