Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream Gift Pack {Review & Giveaway}

a little about Carmex. 

Carmex® lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars

Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.

Since I am apart of the Carmex blog squad, I was sent two new products to review. I received Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream



Carmex® Healing Lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel.
  • Use anywhere skin feels dry;
    available in tube or NEW pump
  • Daily use will help protect skin and keep dryness away
  • Rich healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E, nourish and moisturize skin
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent



Carmex® Healing Cream is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization of your driest, roughest skin.
  • Use on your driest skin— especially hands, feet, elbows and knees; available in tube or NEW handy little tin
  • 9 healing ingredients penetrate and help repair your very dry, rough or cracked skin
  • Concentrated—use a small amount
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent
 ace and friends thoughts:

The Healing Lotion and the Healing Cream have some similar qualities. The Healing Lotion can be used daily on areas of skin that feel dry. The fragrance is not overpowering and the lotion did not leave any residue on my skin. It absorbed rather quickly into my skin, which I definitely LOVE. In comparison, The Healing Cream is thicker in consistency and contains nine healing ingredients to help repair VERY dry, rough and cracked skin (ouch). The Healing Cream has a similar fragrance as just as the Healing Lotion, it  absorbed quite quickly into my skin. The Healing Cream will definitely be perfect for my elbow, knees and feet!

The travel size is ideal to throw into your purse, gym bag as well as easily fit into your pocket for quick on the go. This would make a perfect stocking stuffer. Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream are two great products that will certainly come in "hand"y, this Fall and Winter season!
