A New Favorite Thing

For the last couple of months, all of my magazines have featured full page ads for Carmex Healing Cream and Carmex Healing Lotion. I'm totally a lotions and potions kind of girl, and I'm always on the lookout for a great hand cream that doesn't cost a fortune. But in this case I didn't get too excited because the ads all said the products were only available at Walgreens. Psshht! Like Carmex is too good for Target or something? Come on, Carmex. Help a sistah out, and sell some at my conveniently located Target, with newly remodeled Fresh Food Market!

It wasn't until my husband got a special coupon from Walgreens from buying so many of my pneumonia/cough drugs there, that I finally caved and went to Walgreens specifically to buy this cream. 

I love it so!

It soaks in quickly without being greasy at all.  My hands feel moisturized long after I apply it.  It even softly smells like carmex lip stuff, which is almost medicine-y, but is also weirdly appealing to me.  But the best thing of all is that it's cheap.  I got it for $5.99 and then had a $2.00 coupon on top of that.  

I stole tried a sample of the lotion, and it's not nearly as good, so don't bother with it.  Just get the cream.  Even my husband raves about it.  I was putting some on the other night and he got on my case because he thought I was hogging it.  Uh, sorry dude.  You're lucky I share it at all. 

If you hunt around on the Carmex website, you might be able to find a $2.00 off coupon.  I found it a few days ago, but couldn't seem to find it again while I was writing this.  Try it.  If you don't like it, you only spent a few bucks.  And I will gladly accept any used donations you want to get rid of.

I rarely use lotion, but I've started getting some dry spots on my arms, so maybe I should try this.

I love that medicine-y smell, too. I thought I was the only one.

I'm so going to Walgreens to get this stuff. My elbows and hands get super dry in the winter.
