Carmex Cherry Flavoured Lip Balm
Advantages: Leaves lips soft, smells nice, good size
Disadvantages: Can leave sickly taste in mouth, tingles slightly
Over the past year or so, i've started to really suffer with dry chapped lips. It's something I really hate and i've tried numerous lip balms to try to stop it but nothing has worked. Whilst stocking up on my beauty products at boots.com I decided to take a look at what lip balms they had, I wanted a reasonably priced one (because of the past failures) and when I saw 'Carmex Cherry flavour lip balm' I thought i'd give it a go.
Although Carmex lip balm comes in different forms, I chose this little pot. The bottom is plain white plastic and the screw top is yellow with the Carmex logo and red, green and black detailing. My first impression of the packaging was that looked slightly 'old fashioned', however after going for pretty little lip balms in the past and being dissapointed with the results I decided to not judge a book by its cover and see what the balm did.
The lip balm has an SPF 15 which is great for summertime, Carmex claim the lip balm 'soothes, relieves, and moisturises' what more could you want from your lip balm?
The first thing that hits you when you open the pot is the smell, as the name suggests it smells of cherries but it is not overpowering, just a gentle scent that is lovely. With it being cherry flavoured I was expecting the balm itself to be red, which is normally the case with lip balms, however the balm is of a 'yellowish' colour and appears clear on the lips.
Anyway, on to the important bit... does it keep your lips soft? Well, I have certainly seen an improvement. My lips look and feel healthier and no longer have that tight feeling. The balm is a great replacement for lipgloss as it gives a shiny look when applied to the lips. It also has a slight tingle which I kind of like, to me it's a sign that it's working but some people might not like this. The only negative I have to say about this lip balm is that if you apply it too often you get a sickly taste in your mouth, a bit like when you accidentally get perfume in your mouth (please don't think i'm weird, it just sometimes manages to happen! haha).
Overall, its a good little lip balm and the perfect size to pop in your handbag to apply on the go.
Summary: A good lip balm!
