Carmex Cherry Stick Review

When I received this item, my 6 year old son actually snatched it away from me, he was fascinated with the cherries. He's familiar with lip balms because we had to make him use them the last time we went on vacation just to heal his chapped and windburned lips from the snowy weather, which we were not used to. He sorts of like the cherry flavor, but said no thanks to the mentholated feel. So, it's all for me to enjoy.

Carmex Cherry Click Stick
The first time I swatched it, surprisingly my lips began to feel itchy, that I immediately washed it off. On the side of caution, I tested it on my arms for a patch test. I did not see any reactions. I tried it out for more several attempts (more than 5 times on separate days), but it never failed to give me that itchy feeling. I couldn't let it stay for a while because I was actually feeling that my lips were about to swell. I couldn't believe that I might be actually allergic to it. I'm loving the Carmex Original Tube, so I went on to compare their ingredients. The main difference is the SPF factor, but I'm used to using SPF on my face. I haven't really figured it out. So I'm sorely disappointed on the turn out.

If not for that, there's so many note worthy things about Carmex as a trusted lip balm brand with its legendary medicated formula. It might not be for me, but I might be an isolated case. Oh, it's sad to be the odd one out.

But anyhow, please do check out Carmex Philippines in FB for more details and seasonal promotions or check out the official Carmex Site.

I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
