I recently bought this Carmex Everyday Protection lip balm from my local Dollar General for about $2.00 and I have been using it since I hauled it. I wanted to come and let you guys know my opinion since this is my first Carmex lip balm and most likely my last. Now I am addicted to lip balm because I love soft lips. However, I do not wish to pay a lot for them since I go through them so quickly.
Well this lip balm is one I will likely not continue to use for a couple different reasons. First, it supposed to be strawberry scented when it definitely is not. It doesnt smell bad it just smells like medicated vanilla. As for the feeling on the lips, it feels thick and medicated. It does soften the lips but not really well since most of the ingredients are sun screen ingredients in a petrolatum base which is a huge surprise since it only has SPF 15. Being so, it leaves a white film on my lips which I hate. Another thing that bothers me so badly about it is the taste. It tastes HORRIBLE!! Now I wasnt looking for it to actually taste like strawberry but it has the worst taste you can think of which if you lick your lips at all, gets all on your tongue and in your throat and is really bad. I try to immediately eat or drink anything to get that taste out of my mouth and throat.
So all in all, in does slightly moisturize and soften the lips, however the down falls of this lip balm makes me never want to purchase it again since I know there are plenty of other ones on the market for the same price that are much better. This Carmex one just didnt do it for me. I may try a different kind of Carmex in the future. Does anyone suggest any other specific one for dry lips?
