Carmex lip balm has been one of my go-to lip products for years now. The little yellow tin has become some what of a cult product and I think the majority of girls have used this at one time or another.
Described as a 'moisturising lip balm, it soothes, it relieves, it moisturises, long lasting relief for dry chapped lips'. It definitely does what it says on the tin.

Due to my love of the original Carmex, I was really excited when these new products popped through my letterbox. The Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm which comes in a handy stick form and is available in four shades/flavours; Pink, Berry, Peach and Clear.
I have the Pink and Berry varieties, and they are really lovely. I've been wearing them ever since I received them; they're ideal for this time of year to help combat dry lips and the super sleek packaging means they can slip into your makeup bag and hardly take up any space.

The lip balms contain SPF 15 - so they're great for all year round, or to take on holiday with you, and they also contain Vitamin E and Aloe, making them extra moisturising.

The slant tip and the fact that they're really thin makes them very easy to apply and they just feel so nice on. I've even managed to apply these without a mirror with no issues - which is a big deal for me! There's no nasty taste or smell that comes with some lip balms, they're very pleasant and quite sweet.

As you can see from the swatches, the pigmentation and colour pay off is really good, especially for a lip balm, and this also shows well on the lips (especially the Berry version - which is my favourite).

I'll continue to use these all Winter, and will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Have you given these a go? Which colour is your favourite?
