If there is one lip product I have repurchased more than any other, it’s the Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lip balm. It comes in Pink, Peach, Berry and Clear (if there are any other shades I just haven’t heard of, let me know) but I have only actually tried the Pink one. I immediately fell in love, stocked up, and haven’t been without since. Every bag I own has at least one of these in it, and I always stock up on them in Bodycare (cheaper than Boots, although I’ve only ever found pink and clear in there) so I never run out.
To me this is just the perfect lip balm. It hydrates really effectively, but also gives a nice pink colour to the lips, with minimal upkeep requited. As this wears off, it doesn’t look patchy and questionable like lipstick sometimes can, it just quietly fades away without any fuss. I really appreciate just how moisturising it is, because I’m someone who has always struggled with dry lips, and this does a fantastic job of keeping them from cracking.
If I can’t decide on a lipstick to wear, am going for a low key look, or just can’t be bothered, I can always just grab this to avoid that ‘full face of makeup but no lipstick’ look that I think we’re all guilty of sporting from time to time.
I really want to try the Peach and Berry shades, I’ve been loyal to the pink for a good few years now, and I don’t know why I haven’t branched out sooner!
