Good For Lips!
A Review of the New Carmex Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balm
Carmex lip balms are some of our favorite “go-to” products in so many different forms. For Summer, for example, we like the Carmex Carmex Lip Balm Sticks with SPF 15 (Srp. under $2.00) that protect your lips from the sun with emollients and SPF 15 in Strawberry, Cherry, and Natural Original flavors.
But now there’s a new Carmex Lip Balm! Starting right now, you can get Carmex is a new 100% Natural Carmex Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balm collection that uses natural colloidal oatmeal and cold pressed fruit oil to soothe and comfort your lips.
What Is Colloidal Oatmeal?
Colloidal oatmeal isn’t quite the lumpy stuff you might consider eating for breakfast. It’s an oatmeal is an oatmeal that has been finely ground for use in skincare and other beauty products. Typically, it is used to aid in soothing itchy and dry skin. Colloidal oatmeal coats the skin and makes it feel soothed.
Colloidal oatmeal is nothing new to skincare, it’s in lots of skincare products. But it hasn’t been used all that much in lip products, so that makes the Carmex Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balms, unique.
What Skincare Benefits Does Colloidal Oatmeal Have?
These lip balms are great for those with sensitive skin as well as those who just want a fun to use, tasty, effective lip moisturizer to keep lips soft and hydrated. They’re not just all natural, they’re also paraben and petrolatum-free.
“We are pleased to be adding Carmex Comfort Care™ to our current assortment of lip care products,” said Jona Mancuso, Vice President of Marketing at Carma Laboratories, Inc. “As the first natural lip balm item in our product portfolio we certainly hope that Carmex Comfort Care™ will attract a new user to the Carmex brand.”
More About the Carmex Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balm:
Advicesisters.com was excited to be among the first editors to try these new Carmex Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balms. We had to keep our thoughts about them under wraps for a while, but now we can share the news. We really like these!
Three Flavors and a Great Formula:
When you pull off the cap, you see that the lip balms are in a lipstick-style case and they’re slightly chunkier than their other Carmex lip balm cousins.
There are three flavors: Mixed Berry, Sugar Plum and Watermelon Blast. The flavors are subtle with more scent than taste (in other words, they’re not fruity-sweet).
As to the formula, it’s quite lovely. The clear balms leave your lips looking moist, but not super shiny (so the guys won’t feel silly using them). There may be oatmeal in the formula but you won’t sense it — he feel is extremely silky, smooth and nourishing, thanks to beeswax and Capucacu Butter and antioxidant rich, cold pressed cranberry seed oil.
CARMEX COMFORT CARE™ is available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Target and other retailers nationwide with an SRP of $1.99 beginning this month, August 2016. For more information, please visit: www.mycarmex.com.
