I got these wonderful Carmex Limited Edition Moisture Plus Lip Balms back around the end of last year and then I got sick so I didn't get to post them right away as I was suppose to, but I still wanted to share them with you guys and to let you know how awesome they are! If you have really dry lips like I do, these will definitely come in handy. I keep one with me all the time.
Of course, I have several other kinds of Carmex products because I really do love them and have been using them for years and I get so excited every time they introduce something new. All four of these lip balms are clear, there is no color in them, but the outside cases are what makes them so cute to carry around.
The colors are truly awesome and my daughter immediately confiscated the purple one! That is her favorite color so as soon as she saw it, she grabbed it and out the door she went! So, I was left with three of them, but I knew they were all the same color on the inside, so no big deal. I wonder if she thought she was getting some kind of purple tint? Who knows with her!
They come packaged like this and this was actually my favorite color scheme as just about everything I own is black and white. This fit nicely into one of my black crossbody handbag's over the holidays and I got a lot of compliments on how cute and stylish it looked. This is not grandma's old timey chapstick anymore!
Here is what they look like once you open them up. They go on really smooth and easy and make your lips super soft and glossy looking. This was actually inspired by Audrey Hepburn.
Here is what the description said about the design on this one:

Words to live by: "Less is more."

Acting as both a protective ingredient and a softener, allantoin soothes irritations plus helps reduce dryness and flaking. Allantoin also decreases itching by helping dead skin cells slough off, leaving new skin feeling soft and smooth.
And if you really and truly don't like their products, well, all you have to do is send it back to them with your receipt and you will be refunded. So, there really is no risk to you, so try it and you will see that it really does help!

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 Eric and Paul Woelbing. The Woelbing stove is now used for cooking things the family can actually eat.Connect with Carmex;
