Carmex Healing Cream and Lotion **GIVEAWAY**

Hot – Cold – Hot – Cold.

If you didn’t guess it yet, yes – I live in Texas!

We have had some of the most versatile weather across the United States this year ranging in temperatures from 114 degrees Fahrenheit to our current lows of 34 degrees.  In less than 3 months we have swung over 80 degrees!  Unfortunately, with all of the changes, we have had extremely low levels of rain (stage 3 drought), causing very dry air.

With this crazy swing of weather and temperatures, in combination with the dry air conditions, dry, cracked and chapped hands are beginning seasonally early.

My husband and I both lather down with lotion after showering each morning, yet still feel itchy and dry only hours later.  The worst seems to be our hands, since they are one of the most exposed areas of our bodies.

I was extremely excited to continue on the Carmex blog squad journey when I received a great kit of lotions to try, including their new Healing line!  For nearly 75 years, people have come to love the healing power of Carmex lip balms.  Finally, Carmex has created Carmex Skin Care as a solution to help heal, soothe and moisturize your dry skin.

The Healing Lotion and Healing Cream have been WONDERFUL in this great time of need!  I was even more thrilled to receive two travel sizes of each lotion that is perfect for my upcoming trip to Atlanta, where the cold weather continues!  I will fit perfect into the front pocket of my Ergo carrier while I carry my newborn Amelia around!

The healing cream was my favorite, mainly because I have an affinity towards the thicker creams and lotions.  Carmex Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin.

What was great about both products was that it was not greasy, as so many of the thicker creams and lotions can be.

As great as I found these products to be, I must say that (as a green blogger) my biggest disappointment with these products was the use of a number of parabens. Containing both methyl- and propyl- parabens concerns me, as these preservatives have had adverse affects in laboratory testing.

Otherwise, I did like the product from the packaging to the smell and moisturizing feel! I would recommend this product as long as the use of parabens does not deter your purchasing decisions.

Suggested retail price for the smaller, travel sized tubes are only $.99!  The full size tubes are $5.99.  They are currently available at Walgreens and CVS.  These products are also found at selected WalMart locations.

Carmex is celebrating their 75th anniversary!! Make sure to visit Carmex on Facebook  and enter their 75 Years with 750,000 Carmex Fans Giveaway. Also, visit them on Twitter!  Finally, by visiting MyCarmex.com, you will receive a $1.50 off any skin care product coupon! Who doesn’t love savings?!?!?!

Don’t forget to also try some of the other great new products from Carmex, including their Vanilla and Lime Twist Click Sticks!
