Moisture Plus? hhmm… let’s find out!
I was very excited to have Carmex contact me to test and review their new Moisture Plus Sheer Lip Tints. I have know and loved the Carmex brand for many years, but I am always a little curious about “new” products, will they be as good as the tried and true that have been around for years? I am here to let you know all about what I found! When I review products I test them over and over again, in different situations, different days, morning, noon and night! I want to know, just as you do, if a products are worth not only my money but my time!
Let me give you a few facts:
*Carmex products have been around for over 70 years
* Carmex NEVER tests their products on animals
*Carmex Moisture Lip Tints contain vitamin E, Shea Butter, and Aloe, to moisturize and protect
*Sunscreen/SPF 15 to protect our lips from the sun’s harmful rays that can age our lips
*A slant tip for easier application
Here is what I found:
I loved the feel of these lip tints the very first time I put them on! They glide on very smooth and silky. The slant tip applicator makes it so easy to apply, that you don’t need a mirror to get it right! Another thing I noticed is the scent, not perfumie at all, just a very pleasant fragrance to them. I do not wear lip stick so the “tint” part worried me a bit..I have tried “sheer tints” in the past that did not look at all natural or sheer. I was so pleased to find that both of these tints (Sheer Peach & Sheer Pink) were so natural and very sheer! To me it made my lips look younger because the tint was similar to the youthful, natural healthy lip color that children and teens have, now that IS a big plus for me! Who doesn’t want healthy looking lips!
Now about the “Moisture Plus”….I not only love the way it feels going on, very smooth, but the velvety softness lasts! I went out to eat with it on a few times and although the tint wore off after drinks and food, the moisture did not! To me THAT is awesome! I want something that is going to keep working even after it seems to be gone. I even wore it to bed and woke up with softer lips, nice!
So for this product…after numerous tests…I give Carmex New Moisture Plus Sheer Lip Tints a total thumbs up!
My 2 fave benefits : 1-the softness effect & 2-that “bite your lip” color! (without the pain) 😉
