Having fallen for Carmex lip products, I was excited when I got an email announcing that I'd their package - this time it was their Healing Cream and Lotion products.
Now, you might think that one wouldn't need both a cream and a lotion, but they really are different. The lotion is for more everyday uses and the cream is definitely for more serious dry skin.
I opened the cream first and squirted a little into my hand... I hadn't read anything about them, but I thought that my hands were 'really dry' after cleaning the kitchen. I squeezed about the same amount as I would have done with a normal cream or lotion and quickly realized my mistake... With that squirt, I did my hands, my arms and my feet! I then read the information that came with the package which said that the Healing Cream was 'CONCENTRATED' and I now concur - the next time I used it, I squeezed less than a quarter of what I would normally have used and it was still more than enough!
Part of that is I don't think my hands qualify as 'driest skin' in the Carmex way of thinking - but I have to say that my elbows and the soles of my feet have never felt softer - since that is where I use it now primarily.
For everything else, I use the healing lotion - which is thick, creamy and has a pleasant aloe scent. This product is great for your every day moisturizing needs - and my hands and arms feel moisturized without feeling oily or greasy. I also use the lotion on Erik's sensitive skin with no problems.
I also love that they sent travel sizes too - they now reside in my purse and diaper bag.
