Carmex Moisture Plus - Sheer Peach

Dia daoibh!

Carmex. One of, if not my favourite lip balm brands. Their newest addition is the Moisture Plus range. The packaging of these products has completely changed from the usual yellow and red to a sleeker looking nudish/silver tube. 

Some ingredients worth noting are vitamin E and aloe so it will help to nourish and moisturise lips, along with SPF15. Fragrances/shades available instore now are Clear, Sheer Pink and Sheer Peach. The two newest colours which you may or may not be able to get your hands on soon are Sheer Plum and Sheer Berry

I was sent the Sheer Peach one to try our. Here it is:

As you can see it has a pinky/peach colour. I have to say I'm not crazy about the smell. It does have a peachy smell, but to me personally it's a bit sickley. It has a very slight tingle like the original formulations but much milder. It's very moisturising and adds shine and a small tint to the lips.

This new stick is much thinner and has a slant applicator. As you can see above, it's the perfect size to carefully apply the product, as it does have a tint, you wouldn't want to get it all over the place!

Overall I'm happy enough with the product. I wasn't entirely blown away mainly because I was a bit disappointed with the smell. I might try some of the other flavours and see how I go! Berry might be my go-to! It's always nice to see a brand branching out and trying new things so thumbs up to Carmex for that! :)

Carmex Moisture Plus™  is widely available throughout Ireland from all leading pharmacies and selected grocery outlets for the RRP of €5.98
