Carmex Is the Balm In So Many Ways
For me, the CARMEX brand did not come into my life until I was well into my teens and I remember it well. Eyeing it a few times in CVS with its glass bottomed jar and yellow top, I snuck a sniff of it in the store. It smelled strongly of camphor oil. I think I finally broke down on the next trip to the drugstore and bought one and totally used up the whole thing. Nowadays, that’s kind of a rare to use up a whole balm since I have quite the collection and I stash them everywhere like a squirrel with nuts in my house, car and office.
Well Carmex has come quite a long way since then. The formula still contain Menthol, Aloe Butter, Campfor and Lanolin, among others, like the original but they have expanded like adding flavors to some (Mint, Strawberry and Cherry), new packaging like a stick and tube form and even different types of formulas like the newish Moisture Plus. And it can be used for so many different things besides lips and cold sores. When a friend of mine was over recently and saw the box of Carmex I had, she said she swears by it for zits. Go figure!
So if you are looking for an all-in-one lippie to moisturize, protect and heal, Carmex could be your go-to balm. All @ walgreens.com or drugstores nationwide.
