Carmex Moisturizers – Products Worth Reviewing and Giveaway

With the cold winter months coming up, it’s no wonder that we’ll need extra moisturizers to soothe our dry hands. I think we can all agree that dry skin is not a happy endeavor. So what can you do, you may ask? Well, you can lather up in rich, healthy moisturizers that can protect, soothe, and heal your skin. I use moisturizers every day but when the weather is dry, I use extra moisturizers to combat that pesky cold weather. One of the best moisturizers around is made by a company called Carmex. Carmex makes great products that soothe and heal your skin as well lip care products that both protects and enhances your natural beauty.

Carmex has been in the skin moisturizing business for over 70 years which started with their  signature lip balm. Eventually, the family-owned business   expanded their line to include moisturizers, creams, and tinted lip balms, all of which include healthy and healing ingredients like aloe vera, Vitamin E, and menthol. Carmex products has been used by supermodels, actresses, sport professionals, and anyone else who wants a product that does its job without harming the body. I’ve particularly enjoyed using their lip balms for many years and not too long ago I started using their healing moisturizers. Carmex has two specific moisturizers that target the needs of your skin. One of them is the Healing Lotion which includes Aloe and Vitamin E as their main ingredients for every day use and their other lotion is the Healing Cream which contains nine essential healing ingredients that’s intended for extremely dry skin and deep moisturization.

As an official Carmex Blog Squad blogger, I was sent samples of both their Healing Lotion and Healing Cream to try and review. When it comes to healing extremely dry and troubled skin, Carmex has come up with a formula in both their Healing Cream and Healing Lotion – hence the names. The Healing Cream is a super concentrated formula that can target specific areas on your body that needs moisturizing. The fragrance is light with both lotions and they absorb quickly so there’s no sticky or greasy residue. Carmex’s Healing Cream and Healing Lotion comes in both larger sizes in 4 oz. and 5.5 oz., respectively, and smaller travel sizes in .75 oz and 1 oz., respectively. The travel sizes would be great for traveling or for use in your office, school, or gym. I’m constantly toting around hand lotions in my purse so the smaller sizes are really handy.

Carmex is also excited to share their Healing Lotion and Healing Cream to 1 LUCKY reader of Happymomblogger. The winner will receive a kit just like I did (see photo) which includes the Healing Lotion and Healing Cream in full size tubes and travel size tubes. So how do you win this fabulous prize?
