Carmex Lip Balms

I love a lip balm, behind nail polish they are a big obsession with me, who doesn't want to keep their lips looking nice and shiny, as well as moisturised, and looking in tip top shape (hands up!).

Carmex have their tube lip balm (they also do stick lip balms which will be blogged about later but here I will deal with the tube balms). The packaging on these lip balms is unusual and I will admit I have never seen packaging like this (I mean the domed head for the applicator). All the lip balms have camphor which leaves your lips tingling which isn't bad but can be quite funky smelling with the cherry and strawberry.

This specific lip balm comes in a range of flavours (Original, Mint, Cherry, and Strawberry).

This gives off a nice smell of mint, and leaves your lips tingling.

I love the smell of Strawberry but this also gives off a mint smell because of the camphor in the product.

This has to be my favourite out of the four different tubes

This just smells mentholated due to the camphor in the product but it does leave your lips nice and covered.

Overall they are a good lip balm, the formula is quite gooey so you only need a tiny amount (or your lips look like they've been glued together).

Thanks for tuning in



  1. I agree with you - these are fun and affordable, I just wish they weren't quite so sticky on the lips :o) Xx
