Anyhow, I wanted to share with you yet another new favourite that I've added to my stash, the Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm*. If you are familiar with the Carmex brand, you would know that these actually already exist, but Carmex wanted to *spice things up* by launching their very first Limited Edition Design Collection. This collection features the latest trends for 2014, which Carmex translated into the packaging design of their popular lip balm.
Adventurous* - leopard print, a fun, bold pattern for those who like to get noticed
Chic* - a black and white design, represents both elegance and sophistication
Fab* - a funky design representing the retro trend and featuring purple, which will dominate this season (pictured below)
I had heard many good things about Carmex, and I was really happy with how this lip balm performed. It's main ingredient is aloe vera, one of my favourite skin care ingredients. This product also contains beeswax, shea butter, safflower seed oil, olive oil, avocado butter, castor seed oil, vitamin E and SPF 15 - I mean this stuff is packed with all the good stuff! This product also comes with a surprise: it makes your lips slightly tingle! It is nothing too uncomfortable, and there is no plumping effect, well not that I have noticed anyways. I really like that the balm comes in a twist tube, as it is perfect to carry around with you, and the slant tip makes application super easy. Not to mention that this stuff smells amazing!
Over the next seasons, Carmex will be launching new designs and adding to the collection, so do keep your eyes peeled for even more fun patterns!
The Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm retails for $4.99 in Canada and can be found at most drugstores.
