Review: Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm, SPF 15 in Cherry

/ Wednesday, November 28, 2012 /
Quick review on a product for your lips!

-Price: 10 g for ~$2, available at most drugstores, Walmart/Target/Kroger/etc.
-Current use: at night and day (if it's a particularly dry day and my lips are chapped)

Ingredients (according to Walgreens): 

Active Ingredients 
Octinoxate - 6.4 %Sunscreen , Oxybenzone - 5.4 %Sunscreen

Inactive Ingredients
Beeswax , Camphor , Cetyl Esters , Flavor , Lanolin , Menthol , Paraffin , Petrolatum , Phenol , Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa)

-Very moisturizing/emollient
-SPF 15
-Use a little bit (a little goes a long way)
-Lasts a long time
-Very affordable
-Has cocoa

-Super sticky
-Has phenol - this is what is used in Gross Anatomy labs for preservation! (I believe it's used in this product as a preservative)

Would I repurchase this? As of now, it seems like a practical option. If someone is looking for something super emollient for lip moisturization, it's useful. However, I'm still looking around and trying out different products!
