Carmex Healing Lotion & Healing Cream Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

2:17 PM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Because I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I am informed of and privileged to bring you reviews of Carmex's newest products! This is something that I have been doing for awhile and have really grown to love the Carmex brand.
The newest products that have been introduced by Carmex are lovely and will definitely impress you as they have me. Because I am a mom, I wash my hands frequently. After diaper changes, before cleaning wounds, bathroom breaks, preparing food...all this requires clean hands. Because I usually apply lotion while I am moving and going from one thing to the next, I do not like a greasy lotion. I HATE applying a cream and having to "dry" my hands for the next half hour. What a perfectly good waste of time that is. So, I was wondering what Carmex would offer me in way of fast and quickly absorbing lotion.

Before I continue, here is a bit more about Carmex for those of you who are new to their brand...


Carmex® lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars.

Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.

Carma Labs employs about 100 people and is still owned and operated by the family: Alfred's grandsons Erik and Paul Woelbing. The Woelbing stove is now used for cooking things the family can actually eat.


One thing that really sets the Carmex brand apart from the others is the packaging. I love how the lip balms come in small tins...they fit in anyone's pocket, purse or backpack and are sooo super convenient. Also, the Carmex brand is easily recognizable due to its yellow container color...I always know Carmex when I see it!
So, for this review I was sent a lovely package of Carmex Healing Lotion and Cream to try. The first product that I tried was the Carmex Healing Lotion. This stuff is amazing. It has a light scent that smells like shea butter (to me) and goes on very evenly and smoothly. I was really curious to see if it would be greasy or not and to my delight, it was not at all! Within seconds of applying it I was able to type on my laptop with no greasy residue on my keys.
The Carmex Healing Lotion features soothing aloe and vitamin e and is formulated to heal your skin on a daily basis and also to moisturize.

The Carmex Healing Cream is a thicker formula that helps to heal severely dry, cracked and irritated skin. There are 9 concentrated healing and moisturizing ingredients that work together to help soften especially dry areas of the skin. The suggested price for both of these fabulous Carmex products is $5.99 in the 4 ounce tube.
So, in my opinion, these new creams and lotions from Carmex are fantastic. I can use both of them regularly without worry of greasiness and gunk on my hands. I love the price as you really get alot of product for your money. The smaller tubes are perfect for sticking in my purse and having them readily available for on the go...which is just what this busy mom needs!!
