Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm

I'm always excited when Carmex release a new product, their original lip balm was my first holy grail lip balm and I've been using it for over 25 years now.

The Moisture Plus lip balm has recently been released in Australia and naturally I had to try it. It comes in clear and pink. Naturally, I have both versions. For some reasons my photos of the clear version won't upload, but it is basically identical to the pink version without the pink band around the tube.

Unsurprisingly I really love this balm. It's everything that I expect from Carmex. For some reason I find Carmex balms heal my lips better than any other balms I've tried. When I have sore, chapped lips it's Carmex that I use. 

The clear version gives a beautiful glossy finish and the pink version, as you can see in the photos below, gives a gorgeous sheer wash of colour. 
Both balms have the lovely Carmex tingle. For those of you who don't like balms that tingle, it only lasts about thirty seconds so don't let it put you off.
Moisture Plus balm is very hydrating and I find I only need to apply it two or three times a day.
