My Experience with Carmex Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15
The packaging of Carmex Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15 is very good and sturdy. The lip balm is in the form of a small tube which is yellow in color and has a red cap. The packaging is quite bright making it easier to be identified in the purse. Once you squeeze the tube, the color less lip balm oozes out of the nozzle for quick application. The packaging like this also ensures that your lip balm doesn’t get spoilt like the stick lip balms (they usually break in the middle if you put a lot of pressure while applying). The tube also mentions the ‘Date of Expiry’.
The lip balm does smell like cherries as the name suggests. It has a sweet fragrance.
The lip balm is smooth to apply and does feel a little sticky after application on the lips. But once it gets absorbed, it makes the lips supple and soft. The lip balm also has SPF of 15.
This lip balm should be applied 15 minutes before stepping out of the house for it to act as a sunscreen. One should also reapply after 80 minutes of swimming and sweat as it is waterproof too.
I love using Carmex cherry lip balm as it contains SPF 15 and protects my lips from sun damage. I apply it in the morning and it lasts for quite a long time. It gets absorbed quickly and has a cooling effect. You may even experience tingling sensation when you use it for the first time, but it is normal and you get used to it over the period of time. My lips feel very nourished and supple and I don’t feel the need to apply it multiple times. I especially use it before applying the harsh matte lipsticks and it ensures that my lips don’t tug while putting the mattes.

Would I recommend or repurchase?
Yes, definitely! The lip balm is so good that it draws me towards it time and again. If you can get it from the US somehow, then please go ahead and do so as it is really good. The fragrance is delicious and it does its work wonderfully. It is expensive in India so ask your people in the US to bring it for you. I got mine from the US and I would surely ask my brother to get me more. 😛
My Rating- 5/5
