Carmex is one of our family's favorite lip-care companies, and in recent years they've also become one of our favorite skin care companies with their line of healing lotions, creams and ointments. We've found the healing lotion to be a wonderful year-round lotion, but when winter weather gives us extremely dry skin, we reach for the healing cream for day use, and the healing ointment overnight.
The Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream have a wonderful, non-greasy formula that soaks into your skin quickly to heal and protect them. Both lotions have a very mild scent that is somewhat reminiscent of their original Carmex lip balm. It's basically unscented, which is a big plus for the men in my family. They both contain lanolin, beeswax, cocoa seed butter, allantoin and petrolatum for moisturizing and soothing skin. The Healing Lotion also contains vitamin E and aloe to nourish skin, while the Healing Cream is concentrated for your driest skin.
Every member of my family enjoys the Carmex skin care products. I have a set in my bedroom that my husband and I share, but my children know where to find it. My three teenage daughters are always using it, especially in winter months, or after they finish washing the dishes. It's a family staple!
The Carmex tubes of lotions and creams pictured above (4 - 5.5 oz.) are sold for $5.99 each. You can purchase them at Walgreens, CVS, and Wal-Mart. Check with your local store for availability in your area.
