Carmex Skin Care Review and Giveaway

Carmex Skin Care Review and Giveaway

It does not get exceptionally cold or dry where I live (nothing like the two years I spent living in Wyoming!) but for some reason in the winter time I get terribly dry skin on my hands and feet.  I find myself putting on lotion multiple times a day and nothing seems to help.  I can not tell you the number of different lotions that I have tried or the countless dollars that I have wasted purchasing these lotions.

I was thrilled when Carmex offered to let me try out their line of skin care products including Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream.

Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
Like I said earlier, I get pretty bad dry skin.  My hands get rough and scratchy which is annoying at best but the heels of my feel get really bad.  They get dry and start cracking and I have a terrible habit of making it worse by trying to remove the cracked skin and tearing it down to raw skin. I know TMI, sorry.  I have been using the Carmex Healing Lotion on my hands and while they are still dry (probably because I use extremely hot water to wash my hands a million times a day), they are getting better.  My hands are not as scratchy as before.  As for my heels, I have been using the Carmex Healing Cream and it seems to be working great.  I did not expect it to work miracles and instantly cure my dry skin but it is doing a wonderful job.  It seems that they are improving a little each day which is more than I can say for the dozens of other lotions and creams that I have tried.

For those of you familiar with my blog, I usually tend to use natural and organic products.  This has not always been the case but more so now because while I was pregnant I read all about the harmful effects that standard product have on baby skin.  The new Carmex Healing Lotions and Creams do  contain parabens as well as petrolatum and mineral oil but I am being careful not to leave them around for my daughter to use and since they are working for me, I am not going to stop using them at this point.

Everyone has their own thoughts and opinions about using products with these ingredients,but I wanted to inform you of the contents since I usually do not promote them and wanted you to have all the info for deciding to make your own purchase.
