I LOVE being part of the Carmex family Blog Squad. It has helped to encourage, affirm my trust and become loyal to the Carmex brand! I am able to receive and review wonderful new products developed by the minds of Carmex and share them with my family and with YOU! Did you know that Carmex has sold over 1 billion products? Yes! Amazing.
Well, Carmex has done it again! Winter is upon us and so are chapped lips. With the ever changing climate of Texas, our lips thirst for moisture. Temperatures dip into the 30s in the evening and then soar into the upper 70s and low 80s by the afternoon. What moisture we may be able to harness is harshly stolen from us in the moments that we step outside. I have continued to love the Pomegranate lip balm, but I have once again found a new favorite.
The newest lip care product in the Carmex family is the orange flavored Everyday Lip Conditioner. What makes this product different? It states it in its name: conditioner. Unlike many other products and lip lines from competitors and even within the Carmex family, this lip conditioner is creamy rather than oily or waxy. The conditioner glides onto my lips smoothly and instantly quenches my parched lips. The hydration that it provides creates a seal on your lips that helps the conditioner remain on lips for a longer duration than the average lip balm…..that is, if you can abstain from licking it off! Orange flavored. The everyday lip conditioner tastes like the orange dreamsicle bars that I grew up adoring when I was a child. Extremely effective, yet way too yummy!
This uniquely creamy, light formula with a natural orange flavor is unlike anything you’ve tried from Carmex before. Its 13 moisturizing ingredients absorb quickly leaving no greasy or sticky feel ~ your silky smooth lips will tell you it’s working! Use alone, or as a moisture boost under lipstick. The slant tip applicator makes it easy to apply.
Since inventing Carmex over 75 years ago, the Woelbing family has been dedicated to moisturizing dry, chapped skin. Tested on family members ~ Never animals! I love that philosophy!
Although there are still many ingredients that I am unfamiliar with, nor can I pronounce, on the label of this product, there are some refreshing items that can be found: beeswax, cocoa seed butter, mineral oil, menthol and vanillin. The only discouraging thing that I did find was that they claim to use natural orange flavoring, yet on the label, “flavor” is indicated as an ingredient. With the lack of recognition of key ingredients, I am glad that I took the time to visit their website , which describes the product in more detail:
- Your skin’s lipid bilayer is made up of two layers of fatty acids; its job is to help keep moisture in the skin. The Lip Conditioner includes lanolin, which replicates the way the lipid bilayer in your skin retains moisture.
- Their formula includes dimethicone to aid with moisturization and protect the tender skin on your lips.
- Their Lip Conditioner uses allantoin to effectively aid with moisturization plus help healing.
Small and compact, the tube measures a tiny 2″ long, so it is perfect for men to discreetly carry in their pockets ~ and one less bulky item for women to have to carry in their purses.
Overall, I really do love this product. Convenient, compact, highly effective, highly tasty I would recommend to anyone that suffers with dry, chapped and painful lips in the winter season!
