You’ve got to love a bit of Carmex. It’s become a cult product thanks to it’s recognisable yellow packaging and tingling sensation on the lips. It’s one of only a handful of high street lipbalms to genuinely help when my lips have taken a battering, so I always have a stash hidden around in various places close to hand. Imagine my delight (or squeals) when I picked up these up the other day… It’s Carmex but it’s gone all pretty!
Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lipbalms come in this super sleek and practical tube, not unlike a mini lipstick. The formula contains all the goodness of your usual Carmex, including Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and SPF 15, as well as still giving you a very slight tingle upon application which we all know and love. The little tube is super light and easy to use, especially as the lipbalm itself has a slight tilt to the tip so it covers the contour of your lip perfectly.
The Moisture Plus lipbalms are available in three shares: clear, peach and pink. The clear variant offers a subtle gloss, while the peach and pink give a really light shade to enhance the colour of the lips. (The peach isn’t really peach though – more of a light pink – so if you’re expecting an orange or coral shade you better look elsewhere!) The formula itself is really moisturising and comfortable to wear, without being greasy or too heavy. It lasts quite some time, although with it smelling so deliciously of vanilla you’ll probably want to keep applying it anyway.
I’m pretty much in love with these little tubes of beauty. I love my normal tubes of Carmex, so this makes applying lipbalm a little more glam. These are perfect for popping in your bag and will definitely be coming with me to Reading festival next week – especially as it’s like having three products in one.
