Carmex has recently developed a skin care line of healing lotions, creams and ointments. Have you tried them? In our home, we have been using the Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Original Healing Ointment for a couple months. In fact, whenever I've needed the Original Healing Ointment, I've had to go track it down. I usually find it on my oldest daughter's desk.
So, of course, I was thrilled to receive a box from Carmex this week which contained a gift pack that included a full-size tube and a travel-size tube of both the Healing Lotion and the Healing Cream. I was even more thrilled when I tested them.
You see, I like the Healing Lotion, but my hands are starting to react to the cooler weather. The Healing Lotion wasn't able to fight the dryness of my hands anymore, and the Healing Ointment is a bit messy to deal with repeatedly throughout the day, though I love it overnight. But the Healing Cream is exactly what my dry winter-skin needs right now. Instead of running to my room to put on more lotion every hour of the day, I can use the Healing Cream just a few times each day. I have already noticed a major difference in the skin on my hands. The Healing Lotion and Healing Cream are rich and creamy, and not greasy at all.
Carmex has now created a lotion for every one of my needs. The Healing Lotion is a good year-round lotion, but if you struggle with extra dry hands during the cold months, the Healing Cream is what you need. I like the Healing Lotion, but I LOVE the Healing Cream! The Original Healing Ointment is good for overnight treatment of elbows, knees, feet, and hands. On the plus side, there isn't a scent to cause skin reactions, overwhelm sensitive noses, or prevent the guys in the family from using them, too.
The larger tubes (4 - 5.5 oz.) are sold for $5.99 each, and the smaller travel size tubes (.75 oz. - 1 oz.) are available for $.99 each. You can purchase them at Walgreens, CVS, and Wal-Mart. Check with your local store for availability in your area.
