Two Mind Blowing Lip Care Products

Chapped lips are not an appealing sight and usually lip balm which are available in dozens in the market does not serve the purpose. Have used lip balm from various brands but was not happy with the end results. 

Most lip balms don't really get absorbed, they only coat the surface which obviously get transferred while having anything. Have discovered two great products which helps in getting those soft moist lips this season. 

Winters are yet to start here in Mumbai. Today I am going to share two excellent products that you should invest this winter season.  

Carmex Lip Balm 

What does the brand claim

Not many lip balms have been around 75 years. But then, no other lip balm has Carmex’s time-tested formula. Generations have relied on our iconic white jar with its yellow cap to help moisturization, prevent dry lips and treat cold sore symptoms. No wonder pharmacists have ranked Carmex the #1 recommended lip balm for 14 straight years.
  • Formula's with camphor and menthol soothe severely dry lips and pain from cold sores.
  • We add petrolatum because it creates a long-lasting water barrier, acting like a bandage while healing takes place.
  • Your skin’s lipid bi layer is made up of two layers of fatty acids; its job is to help keep moisture in the skin. Our Original Jar includes lanolin, which replicates the way the lipid bi layer in your skin retains moisture. 

My Opinion

Packaging is simple and yet eye catching. It comes in white jar with yellow lid. The consistency of the balm is like any other usual balm. When first applied, Carmex provides the lips with a tingling sensation. Enriched with camphor & menthol in a base of cocoa butter and waxes, the formula also includes salicylic acid to assist in the mild exfoliation and refinement of the delicate lip area.

Absorbs and stays on for quiet some time. Lips feel moisturised and hydrated for a longer time. Its very sheer and does not give any color to the lips.  Thanks to Carmex Lip Balm I don't have to worry about the chapped lips this winter season :)

Price : Rs. 300/-

SP Rating : 5/5

PAC Wet Lips 

Have you heard about this product ???  I guess not  :) .  Stumbled upon this product and since then hooked on to it.. 

An amazing USA Product and must have in your kit. Comes in a transparent tube packaging with a black cap. The consistency is thick,  more like a liquid glue. Apply this as a clear gloss or apply it after filling your lips with the lip liner or just a little dab over the lipstick .

The end result is more like a wet sexy lips which stays on  for quiet a long time without giving you the feeling of dryness.

It also helps to moisturise your chapped lips. A dual effective product this winter season. If you haven't picked this yet then I recommend you should.

Available in beauty stores here in Mumbai.  (where you get PAC Products)

Price : Rs. 585/- 

SP Rating : 5/5

Final Verdict

Both the products are highly recommended and value for money. Hurry up ! get your pick before it runs out of stock.

These are my go to products this winter season, keeps my lips moisturised and soft. Peeling my lips is a bad habit, I have got. With the help of these  products I am sure this habit is going to reduce gradually.

Thats all from my end...coming up next a make up look and yes as promised,  coverage on Band Baaja Bride shoot . So for more on this...... keep a watch :))


  1. Nice products!! Would definately buy Carmex Lips!!!

    1. Go for it girl ... Worth the money. You can thank me later :))

  2. Great review, both products sounds really good :)

    1. Hey Zubaida trust me these are the best product that I have used so far in lip care range

  3. Carmex is definitely one of the two lipbalms that I return to time and time again (the other one is basic Chapstick); I find that I like the potted version better than the Carmex in the squeeze tube.
