Review & GiveAway: Carmex Healing Skin Care Prize Pack THIS IS A QUICK ONE~HURRY!

It's that time of year when we're all cracking and drying up much like the autumn leaves~and who wants to feel like that? Our skin is so important for many reasons and keeping it moisturized is a challenge this time of year!  My hands were purely chapped until I began using the Carmex line...whoohoo! I love the NEW Carmex Healing Cream and Healing LotionCarmex Skin Care is the newest line of Carmex products! It's no longer just lip balm, but they've taken their healing properties and formulated them for the skin.  I received a beautiful travel bag (black polka dotted with the Carmex logo) and one each of the Carmex line.  This is some wonderful stuff~ABSOLUTELY fantastic~I've been using it on my cracked dry heels and hands~Let me go over each product:

Carmex Healing Lotion~5.5 oz tube
1.  How does it work?  This is a lighter lotion with no greasy feeling.  It's cool and clean feeling.  You apply it to your skin WHEREVER you need some moisturizing: legs, arms, neck, trunk...anywhere you are wanting to apply some lotion to make and keep your skin nice!

2.  The quality and feel of the products: This is very nice stuff~it doesn't feel or leave an oily residue at all! I would say Carmex Healing Lotion feels like very nice department store lotion with the convenience of the local pharmacy.  You can purchase this at Walgreens, walgreens.com or drugstore.com!  Here's a $2 off to try it all out!
3.  Scents of the products: This is an area that I didn't really care for because to me it has a mediciney smell. I'd like to see a scent free product or something a little milder.  This scent doesn't really compete with my perfumes, but I would sooo love to see something in a different scent!

4.  Thoughts on the product packaging: The packaging is a nice tube with a dark red (one of my fave colors) pop lid.  It has yellow overall on the tube and red/black writing with a green band telling me it has Aloe and Vitamin E~this is wonderful news because it's so healing and makes my skins feel wonderful.  Often when I've used lotion on my legs in the past they would itch, but not with Carmex Healing Lotion! This is so exciting for me!
 
I also received:
Carmex Healing Cream~4 oz
1.  How does it work? This is a heavier cream that will leave some oily feeling at first but within a few minutes will go away fast!  It all dried quickly with no after residue leaving my driest, roughest and cracked areas~elbows and heels feeling soft and supple!  I think dry crusty elbows and heels are areas we need to keep looking nice!  When I rubbed Carmex Healing Cream on my areas they quickly began to improve looking much nicer! whoot!


2.  The quality and feel of the products: This is another very nice product.  It is heavier than the lotion so you will want to be sure to use it on your driest thickest roughest skin.  It will compare to thicker creams designed for the driest of the dry areas on our bodies. Living in a blustery cold climate will definitely be a good cause for use of Carmex Healing Cream!

3.  Scents of the products: I'd like to see a scent free product.  I believe that the scent was a little stronger in the cream than the lotion, but about the same in smell...mediciney to me! It's not prohibitive to my taste as far as odor, but it is definitely a little stronger.


4.  Thoughts on the product packaging: Carmex Healing Cream comes in a tube that is more slender than the lotion packaging but has purple instead of the green box which says: "9 healing ingredients."  This is a comfort to know that quality ingredients grace this product as well as fine packaging! 

Also included are 3 lip balms:
1.  Strawberry
2.  Cherry
3. Original

3 lip tubes:
1. Strawberry
2.  Cherry
3.  Original

3Moisture Plus Ultra Healing Lip Balms:
1.  Sheer Pink Tint
2.  Sheer Peach Tint
3.  Clear Satin Gloss Finish


2 Carmex lip pots:
1.  Cherry
2.  Original

I have been a Carmex addict for years! My favorite is actually the orginal little ceramic jars of Carmex. When they came out with the cherry flavor, it is now my favorite, but I can't find it in the little jars anymore- can only find the Cherry in the tubes which I don't care as much for. Yep, too much info probably, LOL.

ksudoc93 said...

I've been dying to try the healing lotion ever since I saw it was coming out. I haven't seen it in any stores yet, though. Glad to see you like it!

I blogged for five lovely entries!!! Woo hoo! ; )

I LOVE Carmex lip balm. I use it every single day, always, especially under my lipstick; a professional makeup man who was doing my face for a photo shoot taught me that trick twenty years ago. There is a tube of it beside my bed, on my dresser, in my bathroom, in my purse, in my car, on my desk at home and on my desk at work!

Beth said...

I would like to try the Healing Cream, because I find that creams work better for my skin than lotions do. And since it's Carmex, I know it will be good. All the different types of lip balms sound amazing! I had no idea there were so many options!

Heidi said...

I love the lip balm...it is the best out there!

Lisa said...

The Carmax original lip balm is my favorite, but I haven't tried them all.

Heidi said...

I'd love to give the healing cream a try!

I've only tried the lip balm-- but I love it. I didn't even know all these other things existed. I'm curious now.

Debra said...

I would love to try the healing cream.

Kelly said...

I have a can of the original lip balm by my night stand and it's running low. I like the original best whether it's in a chapstick tube or in that little can.

Kelly said...

I would love to try the healing cream. I didn't know about all the different products and flavors. Might need to look into these.

Kristi said...

Which do I love? I've only used the good ol fashioned Carmex lip balm in a tube so I guess that is my choice. :)

Kristi said...

Which to try? Well, since I have only experienced the traditional lip balm I'd love to try anything else. Lotions would be cool... then again so would something with a fun flavor would be fun too!

My kids have terribly chapped hands in the winter. I'd like to try the Carmex Healing Cream for their hands.

Beverly said...

The healing cream sounds great

Susan said...

I love their original lip pots...only thing that works on my kiddos' chapped lips that they won't lick off and make them worse.

Susan said...

I'd love to try the healing cream on Peter's skin.

I like the basic Carmex in a little tub. It stinks, but it works wonders on chapped lips!

Cindy @ Fenced in Family said...

I'd like to try the Carmex Healing Lotion. I prefer something that doesn't leave a greasy feeling.

Heather @ Marine Corps Nomads said...

I would like the Carmex lip pot - original. Thank you for the chance to win a great package!

Heather @ Marine Corps Nomads said...

I would like the healing cream for my daughter. Her poor hands crack like crazy. It can be so painful for her.

Mrs. White said...

I can't say which one I love, because I never heard of it before!

But I'd love to win! Thanks for this chance!

Jill said...

My favorite Carmex product is the lip balm that comes in the little pot. It always smelled mediciny but it worked.

Jill said...

The Carmex product I would like to try is the Carmex Healing Cream. My daughter has really dry skin and her knuckles crack and get sores on them, so I would use it for her especially.

Donna said...

My husband works outside all winter and fights chapped lips all winter. He will only use the Carmex in the little pot and my daughters love the lip balms. I'd love to try the cream for chapped hands and feet that get way to dry in the winter.

Brenda Emmett said...

My favorite Carmex is the kind in the tube. It is just a little more convenient than the pot, But both work. LOL

Brenda Emmett said...

I really want to try the Carmex Healing Cream. I have very dry skin and I think my feet would love this. :-)
