Holiday Gift Guide {STOCKING STUFFER ALERT!!} ~ Carmex Lip Conditioner Review

8:00 AM

Lip care in the winter months is so important for me. I get very dry lips if I don't keep a moisturizer on them and there is nothing more annoying than dry, cracked and chapped lips. Did you know that licking your lips dries them out even more? I have noticed that my children in particular have a difficult time with dry lips and my daughter LOVES to use lip balms. As a child, I remember always getting a lip balm of some sort in my stocking on Christmas morning and it's no wonder...they make the perfect, small and compact gift for any stocking! When it comes to stocking stuffers, it can be difficult to think of the perfect gift. Well, today I am going to tell you all about Carmex's newest member to their lip care family and this product will be a PERFECT stocking stuffer for anyone!
Carmex Lip Conditioner is the latest and greatest from Carmex and as a member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I have been given the wonderful opportunity of sharing this product with you all! Before I do though, here is a bit more about Carmex...


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.

Alfred died in 2001 at age 100. Up until the age of 96, Alfred worked 8-hours a day, driving over 40 miles to get to work. Even after he stopped his daily routine, his presence was still felt. His son and grandsons continue the Carmex lip balm tradition today.


Carmex is easily recognized in the stores because of it's very eye-catching, yellow packaging. Distinct packaging is so important if you want your product to stand out from all the rest. Carmex certainly has their very own, unique product!
So, for this review I was sent the Carmex Lip Conditioner. I have never used anything like this before and was really looking forward to using it.
The Lip Conditioner container is very small, but you don't need much to make it work so a little tube goes a long way. As you can see, there is a slant-tip applicator that allows you to apply the conditioner evenly and smoothly...no messes either!
To apply, all you do is squeeze a small amount of the creamy conditioner out onto the applicator. Then, you just rub it on your lips. One of the reasons I love Carmex is because it makes my lips tingle and I really can feel it working. This is because one of the ingredients is Menthol...mmmmm...it feels so great! I loved how this conditioner softened and smoothed my lips. My lips aren't that dry right now but this definitely helped them out anyway!
This particular Lip Conditioner contains 13 moisturizing ingredients (and a natural hint of orange flavor!) that ensure you get soft and silky lips. Not only can you use this alone as a conditioner, you can also use it under lipstick as a moisturizing base.

Carmex Lip Conditioner retails for about $1.99/tube and can be purchased at mass retailers and drugstores across the country. To keep up with exciting news, products and coupons, be sure to follow Carmex on Facebook and also on Twitter!

So, in my opinion...Carmex Lip Conditioner is fabulous! It made my lips feel so soft and moisturized and the orange flavor was wonderful. This is a perfect stocking stuffer idea for anyone on your list...guy or girl! I would definitely recommend Carmex and all of their products to everyone!!!
