Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm

I'm always on the hunt for new lip balm, but nothing can fade the favorite Natural Ice Cherry! I have had this unopened for awhile now and finally got around to using it. I have been a fan of Carmex, but I wasn't a big fan of the pot or even the squeeze tube. This was right up my alley because I like balms in stick form.

Ingredients & their schpeel on not sacrificing fashion in lipcare. Haha!

I do love the slanted tip! I tend to press a divet into my lip balm so that it curves around my lips. This has the same properties as the original formula with extra hydration & spf. Something my lips need all the time. I haven't been using this or Natural Ice lately because my lovely eczema has been acting up and menthol/camphor can be drying. :( Hopefully this clears soon and I can use my tingly lip balms!

Cost: Around $3

Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes! Like I said, I'm not a fan of the pot or squeeze tube Carmex!

I used to love using potted balms and glosses back in the day. I even shared them with friends! EW! (I am seriously the biggest germ phobe in the world. I would bathe in Purell if I could. LMBO!)

What color is your nail polish? I love it!

BTW, I was at the Seattle Wedding Expo and got some one day membership passes to Julep... $40.00 off a facial?! That's insane!

I'm sorry to hear your eczema is acting up. :( That's awful, especially during the wintertime. :(

Katie - Germaphobe for sure! *high five* I need to use a lip brush if I'm going to use a potted gloss.

The nailcolor I have is Rihanna from Julep. In incandescent light, it appears bright magenta, but in florescent lighting it looks purple! That's great that you scored a coupon for a facial there. I suggest you go check them out!

Vans - Check at Walmart!

I just sanitized after that high five. LOL!!!! My husband thinks I have OCD, but I really can't help it. I work in health care, and well, I've seen things. LOL!

A lip brush with a potted gloss is a fantastic idea!

That polish sounds fabulous. I really, really need to get in there already. You're a member, right? )I'm pretty sure you are, if my memory serves me right.) I'm not sure how all of that works... I need to go to their site!
