I have to give credit when credit’s due, and it was my Dad who let me first use his Carmex when I was a young, impressionable youth, and I recall as early as the sixth grade, having my own little jar (glory be!), tucked safely inside a velcro and a zip closure of my tiny Eddie Bauer bookbag. My Dad only likes “good stuff,” and he definitely was right about Carmex Lip Care; a company doesn’t get to be 77 years old without touting an awesome product, that’s for sure! Carmex can be found in the original classic jar, tubes, smooth sticks, and now in the new ultra smooth sticks in scents and even include SPF for extra protection. All rationale thinking tells me that it can’t be magic, but the formula, which includes camphor, menthol, and petrolatum hit the spot when I feel like going ballistic, ala Napoleon Dynamite when “my lips hurt real bad.” You know that my dad’s favorite is the original formula in a jar, my mom loves cherry in a smooth stick, and my new fave is the lime twist in the ultra smooth stick, so there’s just one question left to ask: which is your favorite?
All Carmex Lip Care products can be found at national food, drug, and mass retailers, with an affordable price range from about $1.50-$2.19.
