Product Review: Carmex Cherry Tube

Saturday, October 08, 2011

     Lipbalms play an important role in lip care. It can moisturize, prevent chapped and flaking lips, aids in windburn, and as lipstick base. Peace, love and lipgloss or should I say lip balm? Methinks it's time to review one of many lip balms that I have. I remember owning more than 5 lip balms since high school. Avon, Chapstick, Blistex, Nivea, Vaseline to name a few. Some are effective some are nada!

      Thanks to google because after years of research I saw this lip balm that has been raved in different forums and after finishing a tube, I will say my thoughts now. 

Carmex Cherry Lipbalm in tube spf15

Carmex Cherry Tube
the tube fits my palm

this is how the balm looks like, a bit thick but spreadable clear gel
What I like:
  • Moisturize my lips in an instant.
  • Has a minty feel.
  • I love the flavor and scent.
  • Really affordable at 99 php since a tube lasts long.
  • Has spf. 
  • Squeezable tube.
What I don't like:
  • The texture is a bit waxy.
  • There are times that it dries my lips.
  • I can taste the petrolatum like petroleum jelly even though its cherry flavored.
Will I repurchase? Maybe no. I still have a back-up since this was given to me as a "pasalubong" by my sister-in-law from the US.

     I give this a 4/5 rating. I recommend this to anyone who wants to try squeezable tube type lip balm than the conventional one in a stick type. For those who wants to moisturize their lips prior to lip stick application. 

     I'm on a search for another lip balm that is affordable and organic. Do you love carmex lip balms?Share us your thoughts. 

Good Times!~
