A Lip Salvation

Dearest Carmex
Throughout this harsh, imposing winter, where dry chapped lips are rife and all I seek is a little lip salvation, I find you.
A pocket-sized saviour that is mightily packed with miraculous moisturising powers that banishes the ill-fate of the wind and the cold.
Let this be a tribute to your tantalising tingle.
An ode to your quelling qualities.
You have rescued and soothed me back from the brink of dire chapped desperation, and have satiated my eternal quest for such a rapturous remedy.
You have prepped and primed my pout back to unimpeachable perfection, and for this Carmex, I salute you.

    haha, you make writing about such horrible things like chapped lips such fun and exciting.

    You are a poet and don't even know it!

    Carmex is the queen of lip soothers!
    Right now I'm enjoying using Lush's bubblegum lip scrub followed by good old carmex, perfect match πŸ™‚

    I have chapped lips all year round and have tried everything and nothing works! then when I started wearing MAC Lustreglass lipgloss on a regular basis I found this was the only thing that made my lips beautifully soft! weird huh? xx

    i LOVE the carmex cherry one, but too much of it makes me fee a little sick πŸ™

    but i constantly use lipsalv's Cherry flavour, i adore it, and i have had a few comments on it too. i use it all year round, but i dont know if its because of the taste of it or that it works wonders on my lips πŸ™‚

    I prefer natural lip balms made with only contents such as beeswax , shea butter , coconut , etc. olive oil based balms . Badger lip balms are excellent . http://www.badgerbalm.com/

    You can even make your own balms at home by following recipes on the net .

    I've never used Carmex before! I loves my Lush lip sugar scrubs and Benefit Lipscription though πŸ™‚ xxx

    I used to use carmex, love the tingle! I now swear by mac lip conditioner (pot) amazing! & blistex relief cream for when my lips are super bad. xx

    Carmex is the best, especially when lips are cracked and sore. I always buy it in the little pot, I love it. x

    I heart Carmex!! Burt's Bees is good too…the one with peppermint oil!!

    I use the cherry version of carmex =)

    I must say though, i don't really like the packaging it comes in as after using it a few times, you have to start digging into the tin.

    I wish they'd bring out the tube version of the cherry one!

    Definitely one of the best lip balms.

    I love a bit of carmex, although the new vaseline cocoa butter is pretty lushious!
    Hooray to lovely lips.

    CARMEX is awesome! except I have a tendency of losing em so I have so many, in each bag and corner! but I really want to try the mint carmex! i wonder if its better than the cherry one!

    I Like Blistex MedPlus…like Carmax but better!! – Sorry Carmex πŸ™
