Fall is here. How do I know? Well, for starters, my toes are cold. This is always the first indicator of cold weather for me. My feet feel like icicles. I stay in my Ugg boots all day. Then, there is the lack of motivation to pull myself from under the warm covers in the morning (or I could just be plain tired). And finally, my skin is extremely dry (a.k.a ashy).
Dry skin runs in my family. Some members of my family have eczema so bad, a medicated ointment is necessary to treat it. There are days when my skin looks like I'm an extra on a movie showcasing crocodiles. My skin is scaly, flaky, and hard. I never want to describe anything about my body using these words. And I think I may have found a solution to this problem.
I am very familiar with the Carmex® brand. If you check the washing machine, you'll most likely find a tiny jar at the bottom, trying to make its way out. Chances are someone left their Carmex® in a pocket and it made its way to laundry heaven. We are obsessed with the tingle of this product!
When I was recently sent a Carmex® Skin Care set for review, I had very high expectations. Here was a product and brand I trusted for years (and had never let me down). I was almost certain the healing lotion and cream would continue to impress me....and they did!
At first glance the lotion appears to be a bit thick when you squirt it out. I was afraid it would take minutes to rub in the lotion effectively, but it took no time for my skin to seep in the moisture. The Healing Cream immediately softened my hands. I couldn't stop touching them. I was also impressed with the smell. There was not an overwhelming amount of fragrance that hit you in the face. It was perfect -- sort of medicated, but scented as well.
Just like the infamous jar that starting it all, the product packaging is well-designed as well. For one, it's yellow like the other items. This makes it recognizable and relatable when looking for it on the store shelf. The plastic tube is durable as well. I could step on it or toss it in my purse without it showing any wear. I love that I can take it on the go with me as well because you do not have to pump this lotion or cream. No mess, no fuss!

My son said to me the other morning with bright eyes, "Mommy, I could still smell this stuff after recess!"
If a child can show enthusiasm about lotion, I think it must be something special (or he's tired of his skin feeling like sandpaper...either way, lol).
