Carmex Hydrating Lotion and Healing Cream Giveaway

My skin tends to runs on the dry side, add to that the fact that I wash my hands on average about 10-15 times a day and it’s no wonder why I’m always on the look out for good moisturizers and hand creams!

Carmex has long been a favorite brand of mine for lip care, but did you know that they also have some wonderfully, moisturizing skin care products as well? 

Carmex Hydrating Lotion and Healing Cream

Carmex has two great choices in skin care, their Healing Cream mimics your skin’s natural lipid layer to maximize healing, while petrolatum and allantoin softens rough skin. Their Hydrating Lotion is loaded with vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to sooth skin and deliver super hydration, without greasiness, perfect for everyday usI

Carmex LotionsI really like the way they feel going on and I love the fact that they are both non-greasy and fast absorbing. I can’t stand for a moisturizer to leave my skin feeling greasy or sticky. I also like the fact that both products are long lasting, I didn’t need to reapply every 20 mins, like with some other creams that seem to disappear as quick as you put them on.

Carmex Lotion

I really like pretty much everything about Carmex Hydrating Lotion and Healing Cream, and I highly recommend them for anyone who needs a good moisturizer, the ONLY thing I would change about them would be the scent (I am VERY picky when it comes to scents) when I first apply then the scent almost has a slight plastic smell…but it does fade soon after. I would just love them even more if they were completely unscented or had a “green” scent to them, but that could just be me! 🙂 Try them for yourself to see what you think!

I give Carmex Body Care 2 thumbs up for amazing, fast absorbing, long lasting moisturizing products!

Get your skin summer ready with Udderly Smooth!! (Review & Giveaway!)

I know that many of you already know how wonderful Udderly Smooth lotions and creams are, but for any of you that have yet to try them, I’d love to tell you all the reasons why you should try this awesome product!

Udderly Smooth was created for use on dairy cows, so their udders wouldn’t get dry, cracked, and sore in harsh conditions. So if this awesome cream was created to take care of their delicate, overworked can imagine how great of a job it does on our dry chapped skin.

I was sent a box of Udderly Smooth lotions and creams quite a while back, and like every other product I review, these where put to the test, big time! I used the lotions and the creams throughout the winter months (when my skin seems to be the dryest) These products work great! One test I tried was to go 2 weeks with using the Udderly Smooth lotion on one arm & leg and another brand of moisturizing lotion on the other arm & leg. When the 2 weeks were up there was a noticeable difference! The Udderly Smooth arm & leg  was much softer and less weathered than the other side. I was also very pleased with how it kept my hands and feet from becoming super winter dry!

My job in Special Ed. requires me to wash my hands at least a dozen times a day, this usually leaves my hands and especially the skin around my nails super dry and cracked. I made sure that I had my tube of Udder Cream handy throughout the day and it was a life saver for my hands.

Udderly Smooth goes on very nice, absorbs right away, and leaves your skin with a smooth, non-greasy, protected feeling. I cannot handle the greasy feeling that some other lotions and creams leave me with..I don’t like to be greasy!

I also cannot use many products on the market because of their overwhelming smells (I say “smells” because a scent, to me, is something light and non-offensive)  I cannot handle super strong smelling lotions, they hurt my sinuses and make me itch! But Udderly Smooth has just a great, light natural “lotion scent”, and for me, that is a big time plus!

More wonderful facts about Udderly Smooth:

Made right here in the good ol’ USA for over 30 years!

Udderly Smooth can be used from head to toe

Great for soothing sunburned skin (keep some in the fridge for a cooling moisture)

Great for Diabetes skin care

Hand and Foot Syndrome- a side effect of chemotherapy drugs

Very affordable 🙂
