Carmex Everday Lip Conditioner review

Brrrr it is getting cold out there. Icy winds, wet air, snow, sleet, rain, and even the sun are no fun in the fall and winter as far as our lips are concerned. We chap, peal and bleed. It hurts. My oldest plays the trombone in the band and chapped or dry lips are no fun for her.

Carmex to the rescue again, while we all know the traditional Carmex lip balms we use to help with chapped lips, they have come up with something new. It isn't a lip balm or a lotion, it is a lip conditioner. Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner uses 13 moisturizing ingredients to help leave your lips silky smooth and kissable, never sticky.

I love how it glides on smooth and doesn't feel greasy or stiff. My daughter says it doesn't feel like she has plastic stuck to her lips like some other brands do. It comes in a mild orange flavor that is very pleasant. After I applied it I felt the normal Carmex tingle for a bit, but once it was gone I didn't even notice it was there. I love that is has a matte finish so I can wear my favorite lip sticks and glosses over it. Who doesn't like to look cute while still being protected.

Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner has found a forever spot in my makeup bag. The cute little tubes are going to make excellent stocking stuffers in our house as well.

I was given the product by Carmex in exchange for my review, all opinions are my own and no monetary compensation was given.

Introducing NEW Purex plus Oxi

  Lets face it, if you have children you have stains. Finding a laundry detergent that fights stains well and stays within our budgets can be rather tricky sometimes, so when I heard about the new Purex plus Oxi I was very excited. 

"Purex® plus Oxi is so powerful, it works against over 101 different stains!
The three stain-fighting enzymes in Purex plus Oxi each work against different types of stains for the most Purex stain-fighting power you can get." 

After using it on my children's clothes for the past month now, I have to agree with the above statement. Each month at least one item of clothing ends up in the trash or the rag pile due to being stained. This past month nothing has been trashed. Purex plus Oxi got out the grass, grease, marker, pen, and even blood that my children have gotten on their clothes. What more could a mom ask for. Not only do you stay within your laundry budget, but you save money on clothing as well.

A few things you may wish to know:

  • Purex plus Oxi has been specifically formulated to work equally well in both High Efficiency washing machines as well as Standard Top-Load washing machines.
  • You can use Purex plus Oxi on all clothing that is marked as machine-washable. As always, be sure to follow the directions on the clothing label. 
  •  Purex plus Oxi has been tested and found to be hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive skin.
