Review: Carmex old and new!
I am never without a pot of Carmex so of course leaped at the chance to try out some of its new formulations. I was sent a selection of the above three, which included the original, a tube of the mint version and Moisture Plus, a lipstick-esque stick. So can anything better the original?
Moisture Plus* has a pretty peach tinted formula, but lacks that menthol sensation. My lips are often as dry as salted shrivel slugs in winter (attractive) so this was not as soothing as I'd like. If your pout is in decent condition already, definitely give this a go. It adds a subtle suits-all shade that enhances natural lip colour whilst also softening. A good one for the festival handbag.
The Mint Lipbalm*? Wonderful! I think this is now a new essential for me. If the original Carmex wasn't refreshing enough, the addition of mint adds a new dimension that makes your lips positively tingle. Definitely a friend to the chapped amongst us. Bonus points for being SPF15 too.
*These were PR samples but as always my reviews are honest reflections of products
