I had heard a lot of rave reviews on Carmex but alas, it isn't available in our country, I wanted to purchase it and I could only when I saw it on none other than asos! I was already ordering a few stuff from there so I added this little piece of joy in my life (and the cart!)
Look how cute is it!
The packaging gives a very vintage-y feel. *I like*
The ingredients are listed at the back.
The outer packaging says that 130 Carmex lipbalms are sold every minute! *woohoo*
I chose the strawberry varient and I like flavoured lip balms more than the non flavoured ones, a personal preference,there is a huge variety available!
The application in easy and it has a rounded tip with a very precise hole so that you can control the quantity of the product.
You know that feeling when something is over hyped about and you do everything you can to get it because every one loves it only to find that it doesn't work for you? I thought it was going to be same with this product, but boy was I wrong?!
This product nourishes the lips crazily and I feel it has peppermint too because there is a little bit of stinging that is felt after application for 10 minutes and lips feel and look fuller too! *extra brownie points*
Normally I have to re apply a lip balm within 2-3 hours but this lip balm stays on lips for about 5-6 hours and provides moisture upto 8 hours,which is crazy!
The colour is clear,so it can be easily applied beneath a lipstick of your preference.
Now here are my before after photos:
For some more lip posing *chuckles*
