April Showers Bring May Flowers and dry skin! #Carmex

Well, with this crazy weather I'm not even sure if spring is actually going to come. We're in NC and yesterday it was low 70s and high 60s. Today I woke up and friends from my hometown (also in NC) said it was sleeting this morning! Not to mention the HIGH for today is only 43 in my area! What the heck is going on??

All I know is when the weather gets crazy, my skin gets crazy. It's already super dry so it's good to know that companies like Carmex have some awesome products to help keep my skin smooth and moisturized. As a member of the Carmex Blog Squad I get to try out and share these awesome products with you. This month I got to try out two of my most favorite Carmex items: the Healing Cream and the Healing Lotion. The Healing Cream has increased levels of lanolin that help "mimic your skin's natural lipid layer to maximize healing". Yeah, in other words it soaks into your dry, cracked skin and helps to ease that itchy, burning you can get from overly dry skin! This is personally my favorite and I carry the tube in my purse every day. I'm a chronic hand washer so this is perfect for my hands!

The other item is the Healing Lotion. It's loaded with vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to soothe skin and hydrate without being greasy. My son suffers from mild eczema and hates thick creams. I have to use them on him occasionally but on a daily basis I like to use the healing lotion because it works great for him but isn't heavy or greasy. It also doesn't have a "perfumy" smell which is great for a boy. What boy wants to smell pretty...LOL.

Buy it: Carmex products are available at most fine retail stores like Walmart and Target along with most drugstores.

Finally, the good people at Carmex also sent the Blog Squad an awesome item for those light April showers. A nice yellow Carmex hoodie. It's perfect for people who love to take evening runs or walks. Hey, you can't miss me in a bright yellow hoodie! And guess what...

Win it: I have one you can win too! One lucky reader will win the same prize pack that I reviewed (minus the hoodie...sorry guys)! Yep, that's right! You will win a tube of the Healing cream and a tube of Healing lotion. This giveaway will begin on April 4 and end on April 18. It is open for the US only. Just fill out the simple rafflecopter form to enter. Good Luck!
