In the fall of 2011, I was introduced to the ever versatile Carmex brand and their amazing line of creams and lotions. I had mentioned then, and I will reiterate now, that I am from Texas, and although we might not have the most severe weather, we do have some of the most versatile weather in the United States. In the summers, our temperatures soar over 110 degrees and drop into the teens during the winters (typically). Little rain and extreme variations in temperatures definitely does a number on one’s skin. With temperatures in the 80s last week and in the 50s this week, my poor hands are drier than ever and the tips of my fingers have split and become unbearably painful. Once again, Carmex Healing Cream and Lotion has saved the day.
Continuing on the Carmex blog squad journey, I received a second round of the Carmex Skin Care healing line! For nearly 75 years, people have come to love the healing power of Carmex lip balms and now we have a Carmex solution to help heal, soothe and moisturize dry skin. The Healing Lotion and Healing Cream continues to be WONDERFUL in this great time of need!
The healing cream continues to be my favorite product, due to the thickness of the lotion. Carmex Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin. With increased levels of lanolin, the Healing Cream mimics your skin’s natural lipid layer to maximize healing, while petrolatum and allantoin soften rough skin and aid in moisturization.
The Hydrating Lotion is full of vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to soothe skin and deliver serious hydration. Both products are not greasy, as so many of the thicker creams and lotions can be. I must say, though, that I am still disappointed to find parabens and fragrances used in the production of the Carmex skin care line. Containing both methyl- and propyl- parabens concerns me, as these preservatives have had adverse affects in laboratory testing.
Suggested retail price for the smaller, travel sized tubes are only $1.89 and the full size tubes are $5.99. They are currently available at Walgreens and CVS. These products are also found at selected WalMart locations.
