BEAUTY CHICK CHAT: Carmex Squeeze Tube

Winter is well and truly on its way and while we can’t do anything about the darker evenings and crispy cool mornings, we have found a solution to ensure your smile is one thing that doesn’t have to suffer. During the colder months, cold air and artificial heating can result in dry lips but lucky for us Carmex has a product that helps to fight this problem.

The Carmex Lip Balm Squeeze Tube is an old favourite that has stood the test of time. And I mean that literally. Alfred Woelbing created the brand 75 years ago and this balm is based on the original formula. It is designed to be both moisturising and exfoliating, with key ingredients of cocoa seed butter, lanolin, salicycic aced, waxes, camphor and menthol.

The signature yellow and red squeeze tube is ideal for the texture of the product as it is quite thick, and after application my lips instantly felt better. There is a slight tangy tingly sensation which Carmex products are known for and I’m assuming this would be associated with the menthol – it’s noticeable but not unpleasant.

Easy to apply, give it a squeeze and use your finger to smooth onto your lips. This can be used on its own, under lipstick as a base coat, or over lipstick for a touch of shine.

My Carmex Squeeze Tube is going to be a handbag staple during winter.

The Lip Balm 10g Squeeze Tube has an RRP of $5.99. Carmex lip balm is available at all good pharmacies nationally. Some Carmex varieties available at selected Woolworths and Safeway supermarkets, selected Coles supermarkets, selected BIG W retailers and selected Target retailers.

The brand does not test on animals and all products are preservative free.
