Carmex, the company that makes the classic healing lip balms, has just introduced a new skin care line designed to heal, soothe and moisturize dry skin. It stands to reason that what has been keeping lips healthy for over 70 years would also be beneficial for your skin, so we were more than happy to give Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream a test drive.
The Healing Lotion is designed to use anywhere skin feels dry and contains rich healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E to nourish and moisturize skin. The Healing Cream is for use on your driest skin, especially hands, feet, elbows and knees. It’s super concentrated and contains 9 healing ingredients to penetrate and repair very dry, rough or cracked skin.
Both formulas were made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel. And let me tell you, it’s true! Amazingly, both formulas absorb in seconds, leaving absolutely no slippery residue, even from the Healing Cream which is the thicker of the two products.
Anyone who has ever used Carmex lip balm knows the scent - a vaguely medicinal smell resulting from camphor and menthol ingredients. The smell alone is oddly soothing, as it alludes to the healing properties within. The Healing Lotion and Healing Cream contain notes of the classic Carmex scent but mixed with vanilla and other fragrances to create a light, pleasing smell.
As for moisturizing properties, there are many. As stated, the cream works better on dryer skin, making it the perfect winter skin companion. The lotion is ideal for warmer months or skin that isn’t intensely dry. And at only $5.99 each, I definitely recommend adding this to your body care regime. Available at Walgreens and drugstore.com.
