Brand Claims: Carmex® Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm contains shea butter, vitamin E and aloe as well as protective SPF 15. Now available in a sheer pink tint, the lip balm can protect your lips while adding a sheer hint of colour. It is easy to apply, with its sleek, slant tip.
My opinion: I am sure many of you will be familiar with the Camex brand as it's been in a market for ages. In last month Carmex introduce to us it's new family member, Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm. It comes in two variations in Australia.
The packaging of stick itself is quite fun but there is quite lot of cardboard around the stick which would probably shout for recycling. The stick twists up to reveal very bright color balm with slanted tip for quick, easy, precise and even coverage. At first glance, Lip balm looks over the top and too bright. But once applied, it gives a lovely faint colour.
After few seconds of application, My lips feel a tingling sensation, it isn't irritating but notable. It gives nice cooling and smoothing feeling but disappear in couple of minutes. Instantly after few swipes, my lips instantly feel silkly and baby-soft. It leaves feminine tint,sheer pink colour on lips with a glossy finish. The balm lasts for hours on end and there is no need to reapply every half an hour like other balms. It has very delicious smell and SPF+ protection is great for everyday use as it protects your lips from bad sun rays.
Overall, I am fairly impressed by this balm and can say for sure that will be in my bag for quite some time, or at least for this summer.. how about you?
