Carmex Review and Giveaway!

If you follow me on Facebook you probably saw that I received a special delivery from Carmex® a few weeks ago. Contained in my delivery were 2 products to review (yay!). I received a Carmex® Healing Cream and a Carmex® Healing Lotion.

So what's the difference? What do I think? Well here is a little background information to get you started: For over 70 years people have come to love the healing power of Carmex® lip balms. Finally, Carmex® Skin Care is here with a new solution to heal, soothe and moisturize your dry skin.


  • Carmex® Healing Lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel.
  • Use anywhere skin feels dry; available in tube or NEW pump
  • Daily use will help protect skin and keep dryness away
  • Rich healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E, nourish and moisturize skin
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent


  • Carmex® Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin.
  • Use on your driest skin— especially hands, feet, elbows and knees; available in tube or NEW handy little tin
  • 9 healing ingredients penetrate and help repair your very dry, rough or cracked skin
  • Concentrated—use a small amount
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent

So what's the difference?
The Healing Cream (left in photo above) you can see is just a little bit thicker/stiffer than the Healing Lotion (right in photo above). I like the Healing Cream for my hands periodically throughout the day. It dries/absorbs quickly and lasts for a while. I think the only reason I need to reapply is because I frequently wash my hands to prevent any of these wintertime germs that are going around. It's not very greasy so I can go back to working, or using my phone without feeling like I have to wait for my hands to 'dry'. I barely notice the scent, it's quite pleasant! Especially being about 8 months pregnant, my sense of smell has been extra keen.

The Healing Lotion got SO MUCH use out of it! I started putting it on my legs because they were super itchy with some of the bitter colds were having this unfortunate March. Other lotions just weren't cutting it, but this truly gave me some relief. Also, I started rubbing it on my lovely growing belly. One of the ingredients is Vitamin E, which is supposed to help in the prevention of stretch marks. No, this was not specifically mentioned in the products but just a connection I made with outside information of my own. I have not had any stretch marks up until this point, and yes I was using another belly cream, however, I figured it couldn't hurt to use this too! A few weeks later, I still don't have any. It may or may not be related to the creams of any brand, it could just be good genes. Either way, it makes me a happy mommy!

Honestly these are a wonder feature of the Carmex® line of products. And I sincerely thank Carmex® for giving me the opportunity to try them out! All opinions expressed in this review are entirely mine, and I have received no further compensation.
