Carmex® lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars.
Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.
Carma Labs employs about 100 people and is still owned and operated by the family: Alfred's grandsons Erik and Paul Woelbing. The Woelbing stove is now used for cooking things the family can actually eat.
Well I'm sure you guys remember my last Carmex review I hope you do because I am very excited to be able to tell you about Carmex's new Moisture plus tinted lip balms!
These have to be my favorite Carmex product yet! I absolutely love them they go on smooth , they feel very light almost as if your not wearing anything and it isn't sticky. I love the sheerness to them its not to dark or too light the color is noticeable. They made my lips very soft and it stayed on for a good while I mean its not all day wear but it didn't come right off. It is exactly what I like in a lip balm and I cant wait till Christmas because all the women in my family are getting some in their stocking!
The Carmex Moisture plus tints are only available at Walgreens stores and online at Walgreens.com for $2.99.
Carmex has been kind enough to offer one lucky reader to win 2 Moisture plus lip balms in peach and pink tints!
