Mint Carmex

Mint Carmex: Boots / Superdrug (£2.69)*

I've been a massive Carmex fan for years now. It has always my go to lip balm come winter when my lips are a chapped mess. The traditional yellow round pot Carmex has to be the most repurchased beauty product. I think the Carmex taste is either love it or hate it. I personally love it, Its just so fresh and I love the tingly feeling you get when you apply it. The tube versions of Carmex have a different consistency to the pot versions. The tubes are a little less stiff and a little more sticky. I recently was sent this Mint Carmex and up until then I'd never actually tried a flavoured one. The Mint Carmex contains 100% natural peppermint oil along side SPF15. I really like the minty flavour as it adds a bit more of a tingle. It feels just as moisturising as the regular Carmex. The only thing I'd say about the tubes compared to the pots is that a little too much product can come out so you need to be careful not to over apply. Although as Im a bit of a germaphobe it's nice having it in a tube rather than having to stick my finger into the pot! You win some you lose some! At the end of the day I think Carmex is a pretty standard beauty product, it isn't a must have or an complete essential but I really like it and its worth trying out if your on the look out for a new lip balm!

  1. another downside to having the tube is that after using it a fair amount, it builds up around the cap and becomes really sticky to carry around in your bag! but i agree carmex is amazing :) xx

  10. I love carmex! I always have a pot with me, not seen the mint one in the shops before though and I've been hunting for it for ages! x

  11. I swear by the potted version, I've used and repurchased it for years. It's the only lipbalm that truly helps with cracked lips and hence is a lifesaver for me during the winter time!

  16. I have the worlds driest lips and find that Carmex is the only thing that works for me! It still doesn't completely cure my lips but it's the only thing that relieves them a little. I prefer the tubes to the pots- much more hygienic and more moisturising I find.

    I tried the cherry or strawberry one but found it just way too sickly. I think the mint one would be nice though as they have a minty feel about them anyway with that lovely tingle! xx

  17. America has a lime one, which is so nice! It comes in a stick like chapstick. I love this minty one though, it smells like garden mint and is such a good lip balm! xx
