Carmex cherry lipbalm - A handbag must have!

Every now and then I use a product that is so good I wonder why I ever stopped using it in the first place and Carmex cherry lipbalm definitely fits into that category!

I love my tub of Vaseline, but this week my lips have been so dry that I needed something more and this has done a great job of moisturizing them.

The consistency is a little thicker than vaseline ( and on a very cold day you may need to warm it up with your fingers first) but the advantage is that it clings better to the lips and doesn't wear off as easily. Because of this it goes a great job of protecting my lips against the harsh winter elements.

The lipbalm gives a lovely sheen to the lips and since I've started re-using it, the condition of my lips have improved greatly and they are not nearly as dry, plus it smells exactly like a bag of sour sweets (my favourite), so a definite handbag must have for me!

Are you a fan of Carmex? Has anyone tried the strawberry version?
