Strawberry Carmex

When it comes to lip balm I always find that Carmex works best for me. I have been using it for years and find whether it's for dry lips or helping heal a cold sore, Carmex never lets me down. When I saw a strawberry version in Boots I knew I had to have it!

Invented all the way back in the 1930's, Carmex is one of the world's most loved lip balms with 137 sold every minute! Now that's a lot of Carmex! Carmex adds natural emollients to your lips, while locking in your own body’s moisture to help protect against chapping and cracking.

Due to popular demand Carmex introduced a Strawberry version of their popular product. This new version has a rich strawberry flavour while still being a moisturising lip balm. It's a great product for the summer months as it has SPF 15 sunscreen. Your lips have very thin skin and need to be protected from the sun too! The strawberry version is also non-addictive and not tested on animals. I am quite impressed with the strawberry version. It is exactly like the original except with a nice strawberry scent. This is not too strong or overpowering. It also doesn't taste disgusting. (Not that I'm eating it!) I love this version and would buy it again.

Carmex can be used for more than just a Lip balm. It has various uses many of which I wasn't aware of!

  • Using as an antiseptic for minor cuts, burns and insect bites 
  • Relieving the itch of athlete’s foot 
  • Drying out pimples for faster healing
  • Softening cuticles (I have used it for this!)
  • Smoothing elbows and knees (I also have used this!)
Do you have any other uses for Carmex?
