Gotta Have That Tingling Sensation…

     I have used Carmex since the day the Earth was created. OK, I’m not that old, but it’s been a loooooooooooooong time! Back when I was little, with overly chapped lips (and I mean the kind when you keep licking your lips because they hurt and then all the skin around your lips turns red), my mother soothed my parched lips with Carmex.

I would scream and cry saying that it hurt and it stung and the whole shebang, but she would tell me that just meant it was working.

Well, now, 15 years later, I’m still using the darn stuff.  Even as I write this very post, I’m applying it to my lips. Today, I think of that tingling sensation as the Carmex working — whether that’s true or not, I’m unsure. All I know is that it makes my lips healthy and happy.

Carmex definitely requires certain taste, though. The original scent is strong and they way it feels on is a bit interesting, but once you like it, you love it. I do!

It goes on soft, isn’t sticky, you feel it doing its job and it does exactly what it says it’s going to — soothe, heal, protect. After just one day’s use, my chapped and/or cracked lips feel smoother. And for even more protection, Carmex contains SPF 15.
