The unique formula of Carmex lip balm perfectly protects against the winter wind and dry cool conditions. It also moisturises lips beautifully. Made with camphor and menthol, in a soothing base of cocoa butter and waxes, it goes to work turning ravaged lips into very kissable ones, very fast! The Carmex special formula also gives you something extra - the Carmex tingle when you apply - the tingle that let's you know its working.
You can use Carmex lip balm under your lipstick as a primer or over as a gloss. Carmex lip balm comes with a gentle salicylic acid that acts as a mild exfoliant on the lips easily getting rid of dead, dry skin. This benefit is one of the reasons Carmex is so popular with professional make-up artists including renowned Australian make-up artist Amanda Redgrave who has made up some very famous faces indeed including Giselle Bunchen, Devon Akoi and Caroline Murphy.
"Before applying lipstick or gloss, I always prime with Carmex lip balm as it has a mild exfoliant and gently buffs the lips. I have used a baby toothbrush in the past to exfoliate the lips but Carmex works better for gentle exfoliating. " Amanda Redgrave
Carmex lip balm makes a perfect moisturising topcoat for lipstick as well. It's especially good in winter when some matt lipstick formulas can be a challenge for dry lips, as it creates balance and lends a hint of shine.
In addition to the Carmex lip balm 7.5g jar, the Carmex range includes a number of applicators including the Carmex 10g squeeze tube RRP $5.99 and Carmex 4.25g Click Sticks™ with SPF in Original and Strawberry flavours RRP $4.99. Background
Suffering from dry, chapped lips, Alfred Woelbing invented Carmex lip balm in the USA in the 1930s. The Woelbing family still runs the business today and Carmex has become one of the world's most loved lip balms with over 138 sold every minute! The Carmex jar pays tribute to Alfred's original pots. It's a piece of iconic history for the contemporary woman.
