Carmex lip balm is one that I have been using for years, despite its lack of availability and India (and even in France). Whenever anyone from my family travels to the US or UK, I make sure they pick up several tubes of this lip balm and I truly cannot imagine my life without it.
Let me give you a few details about this balm before telling you why I love it so much.
Carmex lip balm comes in three different kinds of packaging – a stick, a pot and a tube. There are also several flavors, such as Cherry and Pomegranate. I own the lip balm in tube form in the original flavor. The tube contains 10g of lip balm. According to Drugstore.com, this tube costs $1.59 in the US.
Ingredients: Petrolatum, Lanolin, Cetyl Esters, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter, Cera Alba, Paraffinum Liquidum, Camphor, Menthol, Salicylic Acid, Aroma, Vanillin.
I use this when my lips are at their most chapped and peeling. I apply a thick layer overnight and by the time I wake up in the morning, my lips are back to a smooth and moisturized state. So, I love Carmex lip balm for its healing and soothing properties – no other lip balm heals my lips so effectively. I’m also a big fan of the packaging – it is colourful and cheery and easy to use, unlike lip balms that come in a pot.
There are some negatives of this lip balm though. There is a slight tingling when I apply it, which doesn’t bother me, but may irritate some. It also has a strong smell, a mentholated one, that some people may find too much, but I’m okay with that too. And of course, its lack of availability is annoying. I’m in a constant panic that I will run out of it!
I don’t think I will stop Carmex lip balm anytime soon. It is one of my Holy Grail products. Have you tried it? Do you want to? Do let me know in the comments!
