Carmex lip balms are household staples, especially during Fall and Winter seasons. My lips are already prone to dryness, but as soon as the temperatures outside go down and cold Northern winds start blowing in my face, they become chapped, and sometimes even crack.
Classic Carmex balm in signature squeeze tube is actually one of my fool-proof remedies for dry lips, but I recently discovered new Moisture Plus Lip Balms in stylish bright packaging. Each slim stick tube features the same legendary moisturizing formula with Vitamin E, aloe vera and shea butter, that sets on the lips with non-sticky clear gloss finish. In addition to that, these balms also provide broad-spectrum sun protection with included SPF15.
Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balms make the perfect base for particularly drying lipsticks, and a great finishing touch for lip stains. Have you tried the popular popsicle lip where you only apply stain on the inner side of your lips to create just bitten effect? This look is very popular in Korea right now, and that trend recently came over to this side of the globe, so I want to make sure you girls stay ahead of the game with this simple trick!
Lip stains more often than not wear off unevenly, no matter how well you exfoliated the lips prior to the application. To prevent your pout from looking patchy, apply a thin layer of Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm on top once the tint sinks in. That will preserve the stain in its original condition, and also protect your lips from the sun throughout the day. You’re welcome!
I only have one negative thing to say about these. Maybe that’s just me, but when I twisted up one lip balm, it stayed in that position and wouldn’t twist back down. Good thing I didn’t go too far out, or it wouldn’t fit under the cap anymore. Keep that in mind, in case they’re all like that.
WHERE TO BUY: $2.99 for 0.075 oz. Available at drugstores nationwide.
