Lavishly living my beauty life out loud I am often smacking my lips as I am yapping about a product. Very few products are items that I consider staples in my drawer of beauty, but one that has been with me for the last 20+ years is Carmex. Now, if you are not familiar with the product you are not alone, many people see one brand when then walk in the store, the brand they were after and they don’t look around. You have to try new products to see how much of a difference they can make. We are often blinded by associating our normal product with the ‘best’ prophecy and never considering other options, this is just how we all are, but it was time to be open to options. Carmex became the brand I have used for day-to-day lip protection because nothing covers and stays on as perfectly as Carmex. Here’s my Carmex story as I lavishly live beauty out loud!
When looking for the perfect item to calm my burning lips, I resort to a wax-like lip balm that I have used for years. I was first introduced to this item when I was dating the man I would marry. Funny, the guy teaching the girl—-about the best stuff to treat chafed lips, but this is how it happened. My husband would carry this little yellow jar around with him, and apply the balm to his lips and well, I have to say his lips were always perfectly soft. Curious, I asked him where the normal tube was that everyone carried, and he simply said try this.
The jar, was one of the first things my husband gave me. The smell of vanilla was so perfect and the little jar was so cute. I began using this smooth balm, and noticed that I did not have to apply it as often as the stick that I normally carried around. Year later, I am still using Carmex, and my lips are well-treated. The change… there are new flavors that I discovered in Walgreen’s a few weeks ago. There is a Lime Twist stick and a Vanilla Stick, each smell great, taste great and really keep my lips well-treated. I have used every form of Carmex, from the Tube to the jar to the click-stick, and each works well. If you have not tried Carmex yet, there is no better time to try it, because the seasons are changing. You’ll see, once you try it, there is no going back to you basic chap stick.
