Welcome Winter and Carmex Skin Care. review and Giveaway.

Let me first start off by saying how sorry I am that I haven't posted in a while, before I knew it fall was upon me. Fall, to me, feels bittersweet. The leaves turn amazing colors, then they fall and I have to rake them up. The air gets cold, but I get to wear my favorite sweaters. Halloween and Thanksgiving, bring on more projects, stress, work, cooking, and shopping. I turn around and winter is here.

For me winter brings, snow, ice, Christmas, family, and dry skin. My skin is its driest in the winter months. Last year I was introduced to Carmex Skin Care line. 

Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex® Healing Cream were designed to work on the rest of your body like the Carmex lip balm works on your lips, Moisturizing is the job and Carmex does it well.

First Carmex Healing Lotion is light, non greasy, and best of all it works. I noticed a change from day one. After using the lotion my skin went from being dry and scratchy to soft and smooth. The lotion itself doesn't feel much different from the popular lotions on the market as you are applying it, however after you have it rubbed in good it doesn't feel greasy like those same lotions tend to. I can tell it is there, but it is not an unpleasant feeling. The scent is soft,never overpowering. Carmex® Healing Lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturizing without a greasy feel.

For the troubled spots I used the Carmex® Healing Cream. It has a similar scent to the lotion, however I could also smell a slight medicine smell which wasn't too unpleasant, and after using it every night for the past year, I barely notice it.  This stuff does work, it is thicker than lotion and I didn't really notice a greasy feel to it. The big difference between the two, is that while the Lotion started helping me right away, the areas I used the cream on were the worst and took a bit longer to heal. I started seeing dramatic changes within two days. Carmex® Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturizing of your driest, roughest skin.

Both work great for guys as well since they do not smell like flowers and junk. These retail for 5.99 USD each for the full size and 0.99 USD each for the travel size. They can be purchased at Walgreens and CVS, but look for them to come to a Walmart near you soon(estimated Occtober 2011).
