Got Dry Skin? Then You Want To Read This. Oh and Giveaway!

Yep. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carmex. The opinions are my own. 

You might be wondering what the heck a crafty chocoholic  blogger is doing writing about a company that’s known for its lip and skin care products. Well I have lips and skin.

In this case, it’s about Carmex Healing Cream and Hydrating Lotion. I have had dry skin my whole life and have tried just about every product there is. These are definitely among my faves.

Being up to my elbows in glues, paints, glitter ( not to mention chocolate on my fingers)  needless to say, I wash my hands A LOT. But working with paper A LOT, I also want something that doesn’t leave my hands feeling greasy and is bad for my paper projects. Have you ever put on lotion and then felt like you have to wait hours for it to dry?  I hate that.

The Carmex Healing / Hydrating lotion is great! It is filled with Vitamin E and concentrated aloe and absorbs quickly. It’s also man friendly. How do I know? Because Mr. Chocolate steals mine! He got all excited when he saw who the box was from and I was all “back off buddy or write your own blog and become a Carmex blog squad blogger”.


In addition to the Hydrating Lotion, they make a Healing Cream which is wonderful if you’ve got some really dry skin. (Me!) The Healing Cream is thicker and more concentrated and a little goes a long way. With Spring upon us, sandal weather can’t be far behind so time to get those heels looking good. Great for knees, elbows, those areas that like to be a little stubborn.

So why am I telling you all of this?

Sure Carmex sent me some goodies but guess what? They want to send one of my readers some too! And no Mr. Chocolate, even though you follow me and I love you and everything, you don’t automatically get picked. Nice try and no you still can’t have mine.

Simply follow the Rafflecopter instructions and a winner will be picked and notified by 4/4.

Good luck!

Wow...back in the day I found this lotion and I LOVED carmex lip balm, so I was thrilled to try the lotion but it didn't work for me at all - my skin stayed dry. This was before I was more cautious about the products I used. Glad it worked for you at least.

I love Carmex lip stuff! Have used it since I was in high school and that was over 30 years ago! Haven't seen these lotions but would love to try them. My skin is a mess! Oh and Peeps? YUCKY~
