Carmex Skin Care Review & Giveaway

 *Giveaway is closed! Stay tuned for winner announcement!*

I was recently chosen to be a part of the Carmex Blog Squad! I've used Carmex lip balm for years and was thrilled to learn more about their line of products. I already love their strawberry and cherry lip balms, so I was really interested in all of the new products in their line. 

Carmex has a fantastic new line of skincare too! I can't say enough about their new Healing Cream and Healing Lotion. This time of year, my skin gets so dry and these products are really helping! Both products smell wonderful, though it's not a strong, overwhelming scent. My sinuses have been pretty sensitive to smells lately, but these products don't aggravate my allergies. It's a light, yummy scent that reminds me of vanilla sugar cookies. The products also absorb quickly into your skin, so there's no sticky feeling. Even the cream, which is thicker and heavier, soaked right into my hands, leaving them soft without being greasy!

I have been using the Healing Lotion daily after showering and it's been wonderful. My skin is so happy! 

Before using these products, the skin on my hands was super dry. Have you ever had dry skin so bad that handling knitted sweaters or blankets was difficult? Yarn pieces were actually catching on the skin of my fingers! Not fun! These Carmex products are making my skin feel wonderful and really healing it! My hands are definitely softer and happier. Even my boyfriend commented this past weekend on how soft my hands feel. Isn't it wonderful to get a compliment like that from a loved one?!

Last night, I also gave my feet a little pampering treatment. I slathered my feet with the New Carmex Healing Cream and then put on a pair of cotton socks and slept overnight. This morning, my feet were super soft and moisturized! They feel great! What a nice way to pamper your feet after a long week. I think this is going to be a weekly tradition from now on! This cream will also help when summer comes around again to get your feet ready for sandal-wearing! (I know, I have a lot of nerve mentioning summer right before winter, but we really need to remember to take care of our feet year round!)

So Carmex generously sent me a Carmex Kit to let me try the products to facilitate this review. The kit is a wonderful travel bag with a ton of products in it! The kit includes 1 Carmex Healing Lotion, 1 Carmex Healing Cream, as well as the Carmex Moisture Plus sticks and a flavored collection of their core lip balm products in tube, stick and jar.






There are a ton of products in this kit and Carmex is offering 1 kit, just like I received, to one of my readers!!

Giveaway!

One reader will win this fabulous Carmex Kit! (a value of $52.32!!)


Mandatory Entry:

Leave me a comment telling me why you'd love to win this kit! (Please leave your email address in your comment if it's not public in your profile)


Extra Entries: (Once you do the mandatory entry, you can do any or all of these. Leave a separate comment for each one you do.)


That's it! Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents and will end on November 17th at 12 noon est. Since this is a quick giveaway, I will choose one winner via random.org right away and email the winner. That winner will have 12 hours to respond or I'll have to choose another winner.

Good luck!


Disclosure: Carmex sent me 1 Kit to facilitate this review. I was not compensated in any other way for my post. They are also supplying 1 kit for my giveaway winner. The opinions here are mine and I was not in any way influenced or edited by the sponsor.

I would love to try the Carmex Healing Cream. I have a problem with cracked heels, and this sounds great. I currently use Carmex (the lip balm) and I love it, so if the Healing Cream is half as good, it'll be a winner!

winter is brutal on my skin. I've been wanting to try the Carmex healing lotion. Lip balm is a must too. I keep it at my desk at home, my desk and work, my purse, jacket pocket, because I always need it in the winter.
