Memories (Brought to you by Carmex)

Congratulations to our winner…Jessica!

There are some scents you can place no matter when and where you are and they always conjure up good memories. A specific perfume. A certain brand of pipe tobacco. A particular flower. carmex jarCarmex is one of those scents.

Carmex reminds me of plaid school uniforms and cold winters. I always had one of those little porcelain jars in my backpack. I don’t know when or why I took a break from using Carmex, but when they sent me a sampling of their latest products, I was glad to have that little plastic jar (they’ve gone green !) back in my purse.

carmex productsBesides the classic jar and lip products, Carmex now offers Carmex Healing Cream and Healing Lotion. It put a smile on my face to open both products and get a faint whiff of the iconic Carmex scent – just enough to signal the healing strength within.

The Healing Lotion is a lovely all-over daily lotion full of vitamin E and aloe to protect against dry skin. The Healing Cream is made especially for elbows, knees, and feet with it’s concentrated formula and slew of healing ingredients. I’m not one for strong floral or perfume scents, so the clean, mild scent of both the lotion and the cream is perfect.

  1. I would love to try Carmex because I have heard great things about it, and this cold weather makes my lips extra chapped! The bitter air leaves my skin feeling dry, and I don’t like that feeling very much at all.

  2. I would love to try this Carmex Healing Lotion and Cream because my skin gets so dry, especially in the colder weather and then it gets itchy. Would love to have something that works.

  3. I love Carmex! I like their lip balms because the strong ingredients soothe my lips like nothing else I’ve tried.


  4. My brother had a motorcycle wreck when he was younger and his Carmex jar in his pocket survived! He was skinned up from gravel but Carmex was perfectly fine!

  5. I have never tried Carmex and didn’t know anything about them until today. Sounds like a great eco’friendly company. At my advanced age I can use all the help I can give it. Thanks for neat prize bundle.

  6. I would love to try Carmex Healing Cream because I’ve been getting dry and chapped hands. I work with pliers all day and can’t use a greasy lotion.

  7. My best friend and I both use Carmex lip gel whenever we go out. It’s always funny when we catch each other applying it at the same time. Nothing keeps my lips smoother, especially when it’s cold out!

  8. I’d love to win the Carmex because I’d really love to try the lotion on my really dry ankles and feet. I know the lip balm works and I even make sure my husband has a little jar in his lunch box since he has to spend so much time outside in the weather at work.

  9. I LOVE Carmex lip balm and it has been a part of our family for many years, so I am excited to know that they now have lotion and will definitely try it. I have 3 daughters and Carmex lip balm is the only one they will use-because it works!
    One of my favorite memories–and theirs having to do with carmex is that it is always at the bottom of their Christmas stocking each year. And I know that it’s a tradition that will continue because my three year old granddaughter now uses it too….she tells me that she wants her lips “to smell like mommy’s lips”!

  10. I have used the little jars of Carmex for YEARS! My lips are NEVER dry or chapped, Always soft. People are always asking me what I use. I hear it’s a big models secret, because it works so well but is not expensive. I Even put some on just befor I go to bed at night. I had no idea that they mad creams and lotions also. I want to try them.

  11. Carmex will always remind me of my dad. There were two things he ALWAYS had in his pocket when I was a child: Carmex and Wint-o-Green Life Savers. I could give him just a single look and he;d know what I wanted. He’d reach into his pocket and pull both out–he’d have the Carmex in one hand and the lifesavers in the other hand and I’d always reach for the carmex. I loved the way it tingled on my lips and made me feel like a grownup to be using something that dad used. All I have to do is catch a whiff of that signature delciious Carmex smell and I am immediately transported back to my childhood memories.

  12. I remember the first time I got carmex. I was about 7 and I thought it was makeup, so I was pretty excited. My grandma drove to 3 different drug stores to find the one in the glass jar because she was old school and didn’t like plastic. 🙂

  13. I’d like to try the Carmex Healing Lotion. I’m a nurse and I’m constantly washing my hands. By the end of winter they are totally cracked and dry.

  14. We love it because it’s the only thing that works and works well. I am prone to chapped lips, my husband works outside and our kids play sports so we swear by it

  15. We always had Carmex up in our bathroom cabinet all the years I was growing up -even though all us “kids” are gone-she still has her Carmex up in the old cabinet 🙂

  16. Carmex is incredible, I’m usually a slacker when it comes to chapstick, I love it but I just don’t carry it with me so my lips get chapped and Carmex heals them right away, it doesn’t take long usually one application!

  17. OMG. I am so addicted to the carmex in a jar.. i have to have it with me 24/7.. i believe this all started when i was about 15 years old. haha. anyway id love to try the new carmex healing lotion. havent gotten around to trying that yet! thanks for the give away!!

  19. I would love to get the Carmex Healing Lotion and Cream for my husband to try. He works construction outside and his hands are always peeling and cracking from the elements and it is hard to find something to heal and prevent it and I know how well Carmex works on my chapped lips.

  20. I agree about the making out part lol…Anyway, I love Carmex in the jar it works so well on chapped lips. I would love to try the healing lotion and moisture plus sticks 🙂

  21. My favorite is the carmex jars. I remember my mom always had this in her purse and it brings back memories of when i was younger with her. We be at the doctors and she would be putting it on, We be at the bus station she be putting it on and when ever she kissed us you could feel how soft her lips were against your cheek.

  22. before i left for a cruise to mexico my lips were chapped. by chapped i mean broken painful chapped. I realized i had forgotten my chapstick at home! dad gave me his carmex to take with me because “it works and doesnt taste like girlie crap you use”.

    not only did it soothe my dry cracked lips it helped heal them so i could actually enjoy my trip! im hooked now.

  23. I’d love to try Carmex Healing Lotion and Cream because my skin is kind of dry and I’d like to have it feel smooth and moist.

  24. I’ve been told that carmex is the best chapstick out there and i need something really good.My husband works in a cooler so his lips get really chapped all year long.This would be a great giveaway to win he would have so many different things to try.(chucosbabygirl(at)yahoo(dot)com)

  25. I’m so addicted to Carmex, and it really is the best. Recently I ran out, and the store didn’t have any, so I got Chapstick instead – BIG MISTAKE! Chapstick was in the trash within 2 days once I got a new tube of Carmex. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  26. I have carmex everywhere I might need it, the car, my purse, by the bed, my desk, my travel bag, in the junk drawer and probably one in the dryer.

  27. I have never used Carmex Healing Lotion. But we have used Carmex lip products for years and have always found them to be the best.


  28. Whenever I think of Carmex, I think of how much it burns sometimes when you put it on, but it makes you heal sooo much faster than any other stuff. I love it!

  29. I love Carmex bc its the only chapstick that doesn’t make me breakout. So great for sensitive skin

  30. I love Carmex! As a kid I always used a popsicle stick to get all the last bits of Carmex out of the bottom of the pot. That stuff is too good to waste!

  31. My husband has carried carmex in his pocket every day since… forever. I always make him share when I forget my lip stuff.

  32. My stepson has the worst dry lips problem that I have ever seen – thank goodness for Carmex – he uses it every day. Not good for a high school boy to have a big red ring around his mouth…..

  33. I remember having at least 3 little jars of Carmex on me at all times. I could whip it out faster than anything, especially because of it’s distinctive bottle.

  34. I remember as a kid having the carmex in the jar and it was a really cool glass jar with a metal lid.

  35. I love Carmex because it really works! The smell gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling that communicates to my brain, “You could be so much more moisturized!”

    They make quality products and I love that.

  36. Carmex is such a great product…when my dad had cancer and the chemo was so tough on him, Carmex was the only product that helped his lips heal and feel better 😀

  37. I love carmex for the lips and would like to try the hand cream – my hands always get cracked and dry over the winter and I’m always reaching for hand cream.

  38. My husband is actually a huge Carmex fan. He works outdoors and it dries his skin/lips so he loves to buy the lip pots. I’m quite amazed at how quickly he goes through them. When I think of Carmex hubby comes to mind. I’d like to try the Healing Lotion on my heels because wearing flip flops takes a toll on my feet.
