We constantly wash our hands in our house. Between myself staying home and taking care of the girls, to my husband and mother in-law working in a nursing home washing our hands numerous times a day is a must. With New England’s winter fast approaching we need to be prepared for dry and chapped hands. I am always trying to find a lotion or cream to help prevent or heal our hands from becoming chapped.
I received Carmex® Healing Lotion and Carmex® Healing Cream and was pleasantly surprised with both. They both smell amazing, I believe there is a hint of vanilla to their scent, which is a nice added touch. Both were not overly greasy, and once rubbed in I didn’t notice I had put anything on.
I tried the healing lotion first to help prevent chapping before it started. I applied a small amount to my right hand and not to my left and instantly felt a difference. Where I added the lotion on my right hand it was smooth and soft, while my left was a little dry and slightly rough. It is very light weight, if I had not known I put it on and felt the difference I wouldn’t even know I had lotion on. My husband tried the healing cream because his hands are dry and rough from working with them for years. While as a man he wasn’t too into the scent he did say he felt a difference. I have to agree his hands are much softer than they have been in some time. My mother in-law grabbed the sample of the healing lotion and carries it with her in her scrubs and uses it multiple times a day after washing her hands. She too loves it, and wants to buy more once we run out. Carmex® Healing Lotion and Carmex® Healing Cream is a hit in our house. I plan on using some on the girls where they tend to get dry (knees, elbows and ankles) to help prevent the pain they get from dryness before it happens.
Each product retails for $5.99 and can be found in Walgreens or online at Walgreens.com or Drugstore.com. For how much I like the Carmex® Healing Lotion and Carmex® Healing Cream I find the price to be very reasonable and affordable compaired to other items we have purchased in the past. They are packaged nicely and I feel I would be able to easily find it on the shelves next to other lotions and creams.
