Product Review: Classic Carmex Moisturizing Lipbalm in a Jar

Friday, June 29, 2012

     Are you suffering from dry and chapped lips? Mine does! If the weather is cold, my lips becomes dry and flaky. I hate it when I look in the mirror and I always see dead skin on top of my lips, I really wanna peel it off. Ugh. Thank goodness there's Carmex! If you're a follower of my blog, prolly you know that I made a post on my first Carmex lip balm in a tube and it became my HG lip balm. I already finished the tube and I'm glad that I have a new one. But this time, it's another variant of Carmex. I got this baby from the Everyday Essentials Loot that I won from The Beauty Junkee's 3rd Grand Anniversary Giveaway.

     After using this for two weeks, I'm totally hand's down to this product :D Here's my take on another keeper!!!

I used a mini spatula to scoop out the product and put here in my hand.

Without Carmex, just ignore the reflection on my lower lips.

With Carmex, just a hint of shine- soft and moisturized lips! Pardon if in this photo it looks like I just ate an oily food, it's the reflection of the light and mirror. I used my phone to take this photo with a mirror behind it.

What I like:
  • Simple packaging, the hubby doesn't mind using this lip balm in public because for him the jar is for "unisex" meaning not a girly or fancy thing.
  • I love the tingling sensation it gives right after application. It leaves a cool and minty feel.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Not waxy and sticky.
  • I apply this whenever I have blisters on my lips and it soothes the irritation.
  • My lips felt soft and smooth after application.
  • There's a product information printed on the package with expiry date.
What I don't like:
  • The packaging can be unhygienic for me because sometimes I feel lazy using my mini spatula to scoop out the product. 
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm using this daily morning and evening so a jar will not last that long. The hubby uses this too so I need to buy a back up soon.

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. This product is really effective! It's affordable too. What more can I say? It relieves and moisturises. This is my HG lipbalm :D
