Holiday Gift Guide Stocking Stuffer: Carmex Review and Giveaway


I love that a lot of brands are starting to branch out and make multiple products and not just the products that they are best known for. Carmex is one of these brands. Did you know that they now make healing lotion, healing cream and healing ointment? It only makes sense since they have perfected their lip products.


For this review Carmex sent me both the Healing Cream and the Healing Lotion in full size and travel size bottles. They even packaged it up in a cute little gift bag:


I have to admit that I love both the Healing Lotion and the Healing Cream. They are both white, thick and non-greasy. The non-greasy part is really important to me. I hate when a lotion/ cream feels greasy when you put it on. Then, you normally try to wash it off and you are stuck with the yucky and greasy feeling for the rest of the day. They also both smell really good. The scent is a little bit stronger on the Cream. While I can't determine exactly what the scent is, it is sweet but not over-powering.

The Healing Cream and Healing Lotion do have some differences. The Lotion has Aloe and Vitamin E is meant to be used daily to soothe and protect dry skin. The Cream has 9 Healing Ingredients and is to be used to help repair your driest and roughest skin. I really had a hard time deciding which is my favorite. In the end, the Healing Cream won because it is slightly thicker and makes my skin feel more moist.


Carmex Healing Lotion and/or Healing Cream would be great as stocking stuffers for the entire family. The Suggested Retail Price is just $5.99 for the full size and $.99 for the travel size tubes! At that price you can afford to buy Carmex for everyone. They would also make great gifts for teachers, co-workers, neighbors, etc.
