  1. Would love to try Carmex Plus Pink Sheer Tint as it is hydrating and contains Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, and most important for me SPF15+

  2. I would be more than happy to try and to review this great sounding product as it just what i would love to use in the warmer weather as i have run out of lip balm and have been looking for a new one to replace it so if the offer is still open i would love to take part in this

  3. Sorry that i didnt add that the in your email to me that the address you have for my is correct and so i would love to take part in this trial regards linda of woodend

  4. Unfortunately I can’t use this product as I’m on medication and Aloe Vera not allowed :-(. Not fair because I love lip balms

  5. Can someone tell me what happened to the login button???? I didnt know where else to write this?? Sorry, something has been changed??

  6. I received my Lip Balm yesterday…:-)
    Positives:~
    I love the feel of it… It makes my lips feel lush.
    It does have an SPF factor.
    It lasts a while after applying.
    My lips still felt moist after eating with it on too.
    Negatives:~
    I am not overly wrapped in the pink colour.
    It seemed to have a slight menthol ting in it. Which gives the lips a slight burning feeling. (my lips were chafed so, I could really feel it)
    That doesn’t last long though..
    The flavour and smell is nice but doesn’t last.
    I want to thankyou for the opportunity to test this product..
    More than happy to try anything else at any time…;-)

  7. I am one of the people selected to trial this product, and I am definitely pleased. When I first saw the colour, I thought “oh dear” as it appeared to be a bright candy pink. But It was very, very sheer and gave just a hint of colour which was perfect for me, as I am very fair, and bright colours tend to look garish on me. The scent was a little like bubblegum or candy, and it was very subtle and not overly sweet or cloying. I was surprised when I first put it on, as it started tingling, and had sort of a menthol/cough drop/eucalyptus type of sensation on my lips. It doesn’t smell or look medicinal, but it definitely has a medicated aspect to it, which was nice and different for me. It left a nice light sheen, moist and soft, not slick and glossy. I would recommend this product for those who want something more from their lip balm, and who want a product that serves as a perfect “go to” balm for daytime use to replace a heavier lipstick or a waxy chap stick.

  8. OMG PURE GOLD!

    Cute packaging, smells delish, gorgeous colour, and keeps your lips smooth and soft!

    It has a sweet vanilla scent, and feels creamy and smooth – not sticky or tacky at all.

    Get ready to pucker up with this amazing stuff!

  9. I trialled this product and have a few pros and cons about it.
    To start, the packaging is attractive and if you’re one of those buyers who buys things simply by look alone, you’de probably buy this item.

    On opening the product, I was a bit worried to tell you the truth, as the item is listed as “SHEER pink”, and the colour on opening looks pretty dark to be sheer. However, on application, it does leave a nice “sheer pink” glow on the lips, good for those times when you want to apply something to your lips without telling the whole world you have lip balm/gloss on.

    Application is smooth and very easy. The user can choose to apply one coat or more, but one coat is perfect and this product seems to go a long way, without the need to apply it several times just to feel its uses.

    It does, on application, exactly what it promises to do- “moisturising the lips while leaving a hint of sheer pink”, and has the added benefit of SPF 15.

    The cons, for me, is that it left the trademark “slight burning, tingling sensation” on the lips that other Carmex products have. I personally do not like this feeling. However, if this does not bother others, then it should be no issue.

    Also, it had a slight menthol smell, mixed with the trademark caramel scent that CARMEX products also seem to have; again, if this is no problem to the user then there is no issue.

    All in all, CARMEX “moisture plus” in sheer pink delivers what it says it does for uses, combining both moisturising properties and sheer colour in the one item, protecting from sun, wind, and cold exposure. Apart from the slight menthol smell and slight tingle left on the lips, I would give this a thumbs up for others to try.
    8 out of 10!

    (p.s. Thankyou to the beauty and lace team for giving me the opportunity to trial this product, It was a pleasure and I hope I will be able to trial other products for you in the future)

  10. This is great, the colour looks brighter than what it appears when it’s applied, which is actually good, has a lovely feeling to it, nice pleasant scent. Leaves your lips feeling well moisturised and lasts for hours without wearing off. Nice slim and compact, you can even keep it in your purse!

  11. I recieved my Carmex Moisture Plus Lip balm recently and I must say I was quite suprised upon opening the lid to find a hot pink colour Lip Balm inside and thought the colour would be way too bright for me
    After applying I found it goes on your lips as a beautiful sheer pink tint that I think would suitable for everyone complexion .
    As with previous Carmex products that I have used it gives you what I do find to be an enjoyable tingly feeling when applied . I always feel as though thats the product starting to work on my lips especially if they are already dry. I will be definitely using this as a saytime and evening product as sometimes I dont want to wear much colour on my lips but like a sheer tinit , this way I get both a slight colour to my lips plus great protection coming up to Summer with an SPF15 included in the lip balm as well as Vitamin E and Aloe included . This is a product that I will definitely repurchase after finishing this product I recieved to reviwe for Beauty and Lace .Thanks so much

  12. Thank you B&L for allowing me to trial and review this product. I am such a girlie girl and love my lip balms! I always have at least 5 or so in my handbag! 🙂

    I really like the packaging. It is cute with the pink stripe and isn’t over the top and also very easy to use. I love the pink colour of the formula and also the lighter shade it gives to my lips.

    It glides on nice and smooth and I love the SPF factor in it which gives me peace of mind that I am protecting my lips as well. 🙂

    This is great to wear all day every day and lasts a long time on your lips.

    Overall all very happy with it and would purchase it in the future, I love everything about it and my lips feel much softer and smooth since using it. 🙂

    10/10!

  13. LOVE this little beauty! First of all, such a compact little stick that I put in my bag, glove box, shove it in my pocket if needed. I think the pink is a nice sheer colour, if you just wanted something minimal and not overly in your face. It could have been a nicer shade of pink, but I still like the look if it on my lips. I applied it before work and my lips felt moisturised most of the day which is a big plus. It also was light, so not a big thick heavy moisturiser which I liked. Overall I give this Carmex Moisture Plus a big tick of approval for me.

  14. I was thrilled to get to trial this wonderful lip balm. Im quite new to carmex products as i have only tried the classic carmex moisturising lip balm which i loved so I expected the same high quality product with this moisture plus tinted balm and thankfully i wasnt disappointed.
    It comes in a very slimline tube with a pop of lid that fits very firmly so you wont have any nasty accidents where the lid as floated off and you find lip balm scattered all throughout your handbag. The bottom of the tube is the twist part that helps your lip balm to twist up. Just this morning mine has decided to break and so my lipbalm is stuck in a position wher its slightly raised and im now too scared to put the lid on fully as im scared i will then squash the balm into the top of the lid so now i cant take this product with me and it jsut sits here beside my computer. Quite annoying.
    The product itself is lovely. It helps keep the lips hydrated and adds a slight tint to the lips. Not too much but very subtle.

    I love this product but am disaponted with the twist up stopping working. I will repurchase this product and give it another go.

    Worth a try.

  15. There is a definite buzz going around the online beauty community about Carmex products, so when Beauty and Lace offered this great opportunity to trial the new Moisture plus ultra-hydrating lip balm in sheer pink, I leapt at the chance.

    Having never personally tried any product by Carmex before, I eagerly awaited it’s arrival in the mail, and was more than pleasantly surprised.

    The super-soft buttery balm melts as soon as it comes into contact with your lips. It is wonderfully moisturising and leaves a lovely hint of colour.

    It has a pleasant scent that seems to be of perfect strength – strong enough to detect but not obnoxious to the senses.

    I simply adore it and love the wind up packaging. No fingers are needed to apply!

    As lips are exposed to the sun and don’t contain the protective pigment melanin, having a lip care product with vitamin E can help protect your lips during the day and repair damage as vitamin E is believed to protect skin from damage directly caused by ultraviolet rays. Personally for me, vitamin E in a lip care product is essential, and so Carmex ticks yet another box. The SPF 15 is an added bonus; perfect for our Australian climate.

    Yes, it does cause slight tingling which some people see as its downside, but after researching the Carmex brand I found this is because it contains camphor and menthol; ingredients which give Carmex a cooling effect and helps to relieve the irritation of rough, chapped lips. It’s nothing to be concerned over, and the tingling does stop.

    Overall, I think this is a great lip balm and will definitely be recommending to family & friends. It was a pleasure to trial and I’d love to thank Beauty and Lace for the very fun opportunity 🙂

  16. I was also picked to trial this product.

    I was surprised at the colour which was a very bright pink that I was a bit skeptic of. But once I tried the colour I was pleasantly surprised. The colour was a flattering pale pink colour that I felt comfortable wearing.

    The texture was divine. Not quite so thick and uncomfortable as I find most lip balms are like. And it had a beautiful sheen to boot. And it had a lovely scent as well.

    Overall I will definitely be buying this product in future and will be recommending it to my friends.

  17. Received my Carmex Moisture Plus ultra hydrating lip balm in a sheer pink tint in the mail.

    Wow! I can’t think of anything to say about this product as a lot of people have been putting their inputs already:) The packaging itself is very simple (see above photo ). I like the smell and feel of the lip balm to my lips. It feels a little bit minty but not as strong as the other carmex lip balm (original flavour) I have tried earlier- use to relieve chapped lips. I have to re-apply a few times on my lips because it doesn’t last long.

    Overall, it is good for everyday use and very affordable. Thanks heaps, Beauty and Lace/Carmex Australia ! xox

  18. I was one of the lucky ones chosen to trial the Carmex Moisture Plus ultra hydrating lip balm and I really love it.
    The packaging is quite eye catching but I was a little concerned when I saw the colour of the lip balm as rather than looking like a sheer tint it was quite a bright pink, but when I applied it found it to be perfect as it definitely was only a sheer tint.
    I have normally dry lips and found the lip balm to keep my lips nice and moist for quite a long time.
    I have never tried Carmex products before and I am really impressed with this one and will definitely be recommending it to all my friends
    Thank you very much Beauty and Lace for selecting me to trial this product.

  19. I have been using Carmex Moisture Plus for the 3 days that I have had it. I love the pink tint – it makes me feel as though I am wearing just a bit of make-up if I’m just dashing out on a quick errand. I also love that the shape is distinguishable from lipsticks, which makes reaching for it in my bag a lot easier. I too am slightly put off by the tingling feeling, but I’m encouraged by the SPF the product contains.

  20. I was really excited to have been selected for this trial.I had never tried any carmrx products before so it was a new experience for me. I love the cute packaging but I was a little reluctant about the pink sheer tint – I’m not a pink person by nature but the colour shows enough to be noticed that you have some colour on your lips. Another plus is only 3 days of use my lips were smoother and I like that it contains SPF15. The only thing I wasnt keen about was the tingling/burning sensation – rest assured its short lived sensation. Overall its a pretty good quality lip balm and one I’d be happy to add to my collection.

  21. Thank you so much to B&L for selecting me to trial this great new product from Carmex.
    I have to say, I am a huge fan of lip products. I’ve seen many lip balms on the markets with the added bonus of pink tints, but I must say that after trialling close to all of these new lip balms, Carmex comes out on top!
    Firstly, the moisture that my lips get from the balm is just wonderful. My lips feel soft and supple and not dry at all.
    The pink tint is subtle but still beautiful looking on my lips.
    Secondly, I love that it protects my lips from the sun. Not many lip balms I own have the added spf, so this is a big bonus!
    Thirdly, I really like the packaging and how it mimics a lip stick. It is much easier to apply this way.
    Overall, I am so pleased with this lip balm and I use it everyday! I definitely purchase another one as soon as this one finishes.

  22. First I really want to thank Beauty and lace AND carmex for giving this chance,as I discovered the best and most wanted lip balm.I have tried so many before as I have got very dry lips ,lip balm is the most essential thing for me.But none was perfect .I just loved this new Carmex slightly pink and moisture added lip balm.it kept my lips soft and suple for hours,giving them lustrous look and looking naturally beautiful.It is so light but rich that whole day my lips were feeling soft and nourished. This has become the must have beauty essential for me and I keep it like a treasure in my purse!

  23. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Carmex Moisture Plus 🙂
    I am definitely converted.
    The tube is sleek easy to take everywhere night or day.

    I have sensitive lips prone to cracking so I am forever either using a lip gloss for colour and a lip balm for protection this lip balm combines both for a perfect flawless finish.

    It glides on perfectly, look amazing with the soft pink and a subtle scent.
    My lips feel moistured for hours and protected from the sun which is definitely a bonus.
    At $8.99 worth every cent.
    Thank you for the opportunity to trial this wonderful product which I give 5/5 🙂

  24. Love the packaging, It kept my lips moisured for hours(and with being pregnant at the moment ive been getting cracked lips) Goes on flawlessly.

    A must have essential for any lady

  25. I received my Carmex lip balm on Friday, just in time for going out. The dispenser is so cute, angled like a lipstick. It looked very pink and I was a little disappointed that the colour rather disappeared once I applied it. But I stayed with it and after a minute’s consideration, decided the gloss was all I needed. My lips loved the feel! It was silken, smooth, glorious – everything this girl wants in a lip balm. It didn’t last through drinks, though. Without drinks, the balm lasted about an hour. Which is just not enough! With the Carmex, my lips felt amazing. I so noticed how dry my lips were without it.

    Carmex lip galm gives a little gloss, a lot of moisture all in the cutest lip balm packaging I’ve seen. A great product.

    Thanks, Beauty and Lace, for giving me the chance to try and review Carmex lip balm.

  26. Yayy,,Finally received cute little lip balm stick in a mail today morning and applied on my lips sight away.

    The first thing I noticed was the smell of the product . it’s just divine. Another thing was colour of the balm stick. It look scary to be honest as it has hot pink shade,however once applied it gave me nice almost non-coloured tinted s finish. The silky smooth and light texture of product felt sooooooo good and my lips instantly moisturised.

    All this for just 8.95..! Amazing. I would recommend this product to family and friends.

    Thanks Carmex and Beauty and Lace. 🙂

  27. I received the Carmex lip balm to trial. I absolutely loved it. The sheer colour was just the right colour needed for the lip balm. It delivered on its promise of hydrating my lips. It was very smooth. I will definitely recommend this product to my friends.

  28. I received this product to review and was intrigued as I often have dry lips which many other lip balms have failed to treat. So I was delighted to find this lip balm works SO well and seems to last a lot longer than other brands I have tried. It is probably too pink for my liking, I prefer a more subtle tint or pearly shade, however, given how well it works and how long it stays on I am more than willing to accept the Pink shade! Overall, I loved it! Does it come in other shades?? Thanks so much for solving my dry lip issues. I will be using and recommending this product.

  29. Thank you Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to trial this great Carmex product. I am a self-confessed beauty addict who has far too many lip balms already but is always searching for more!

    The balm had a sheer consistency which left a comfortable, lightly moisturising film. My lips felt immediately more supple and hydrated.

    The colour, whilst startling pink in the tube, added just the perfect hint of colour to my lips and created a naturally flushed and pretty look. I am a fan of pink-tinted products, as sheer pink gives a youthful glow to the face (as opposed to intense pink which only makes teeth appear yellower than they really are!). The sheer colour also meant I could apply without a mirror and not worry too much about the need for accuracy!

    The scent was a little unusual, a mixture of vanilla and the original Carmex scent (slightly menthol), but not at all unpleasant. The tingling sensation from the menthol was a non-issue for me but I suspect girls with heavily cracked lips might have issue with it.

    Overall, I am greatly impressed with the colour, texture and moisturising properties of this balm. It currently has #1 price of place in my beauty bag!

  30. I was excited to see that I received the product today, and now I have the chance to review it! My first impression is that the packaging is not overdone, the lip gloss stick itself just having a small pink stripe around it to denote that it is the coloured version. I feel this is right for the product, as Carmex need not boast, their products speak for themselves.

    Upon using the product my immediate thoughts are that the product has the goodness of Carmex’s clear moisture plus stick (which I have previously trialled, and then gladly sought out & bought), with a delightful lolly pink colour, making for a perfect pout! It tingles on my lips, makes my lips feel fuller, with a small sexy pout, and nourishes my lips. I give this one a 10/10 Carmex… I absolutely love it!

    Thank you Beauty & Lace for selecting me to trial this, and thank you Carmex for offering Beauty & Lace users the opportunity to trial this great product.

  31. Have used the Carmex Moisture plus over the last few days, and I really like it. Very moisturising & the pretty but subtle pink is very flattering. Just enough to flatter my lips, but subtle enough that I can wear it on days when I don’t want to wear any makeup.

    Thank you for choosing me as part of the trial.

  32. I was thrilled to be offered the chance to trial the Carmex Moisture PLus lip balm with a pink sheer tint. It arrived yesterday, which was perfect timing for my poor dry chapped lips.
    The size of the product is great, it’s small and sleek (not bulky) and fits into my purse pefectly. It applies easily with the slant tip and left my lips looking fresh and supple. The smell of the product is also heavenly (vanilla). The lip balm stayed on well and felt really nice on my lips. I wasn’t a huge fan of the colour, but that’s simply my preference (i prefer red/burgundy shades), but it isn’t ‘too’ pink.
    I would definitely purchase this product if it comes in other colour tints.

  33. Hi, well WOW!!! All my dreams just came true… A PINK tinted Lip Moisturiser!!! I absolutely L♥ved the moisturising qualities of the original Carmex but this PINK one that even leaves a pink tint to my lips is Fantastic. I have not let it leave my pocket moisturising my lips again and again every day since i got it. My Lips are really bad for cracking but whilst using this they have been feeling fantastic even when it wears off! I can smile without fear of splitting my lip… Thank you Carmex ♥

  34. I loved this lip balm. Even after one day of use my lips feel smoother and more hidrated. It has a lovely smell also and the shade is very flattering. I usually have very dry lips and this was a godsend as my lips are now beautifully soft and very kissable!
    Thanks for letting me trial.

  35. Another great lip balm from Carmex! I love the slanted tip, which makes application effortless. This baby glides on perfectly and feels fantastic on. There is a slight tingly sensation on the lips when you first apply it, much like you get with the Carmes Original pol of balm, but ut is not unpleasant. This feeling fades away after a few minutes. My lips feel soft and very moisturised after application, and I’ve found that this formula is quite long-wearing. I love that I’m not having to re-apply it every 10 minutes like some other lip balms.

    The packaging is handy and it’s a small tube that can easily be thrown in the gym bag or handbag. I like that the lid clicks on, so you know it’s secure and isn’t going to fall off and leave a mess in my handbag.

    The shade looks quite dramatic in the tube, but wears as a subtle baby/soft pink that builds up slowly with more applications. It’s very flattering; this is definitely something you could wear out. It’s not sticky or tacky like a lip gloss, it’s a great, comfortable finish.

    Also appreciate the SPF 15 to protect from the suns harmful rays, and the Vitamin E and Aloe contained within. ‘Ultra hydrating’ is claimed on the packaging, and this easily hits the mark. I’m very impressed by this pretty lip balm and would definitely purchase it in the future.

  36. Carnex Moisture Plus ultra hydrating lip balm..Pink Sheer Tint

    2 grams…..$8.99

    This lovely product comes in a sleek lipstick style container with a snap lock-on top.

    It contains Vitamin E and Aloe for deep moisturising of your lips.
    Also has SPF 15 for protection from the sun’s rays.

    It is available in sheer tints and clear satin gloss finish.

    Having a slanted tip makes application easy.

    The colour looks a lot darker in the container then when applied.

    It glides on with ease and appears to highlight my natural lip colour.

    After using it for a few days, I have found my lips are plump and hydrated with a hint of colour.

    Love that it contains SPF 15 protection.

    I would recommend that everyone give it a try if you love super hydrated lips.

    I will certainly purchase this wonderful Carmex product again and again.

    Thanks Carmex and Beauty and Lace.

  37. A confession, I’m a bit of a product snob who have never used Carmex products before, simply because they don’t cost a bomb like other lip things I own. Now that I’ve tried it I’m hooked, I wish I had given the brand a try before.

    My first impression: without considering the packaging it looked like a dupe for one of my favourite expensive lip tints – similar shade (Carmex’ more sheer), same spf 15. I felt in love on 1st application – I have been using it ever since I received it yesterday.

    Love: melt-on-the-lips texture, yummy scent, pink tint that’s easily buildable, tingly menthol, moisturising without making my lips feel sticky, lasted a decent amount of time (still there after lunch), wallet-friendly price point.

    Will definitely be purchasing this. Thanks for the opportunity to try this great product! 🙂

  38. This lip balm is brilliant. There is a lovely light pink colour, it taste and smells delicious. There is a light smell and not overpowering.
    I really like this as it’s in a good packaging, the lid clicks shut and it looks neat and compact.

    The product is moisturising, not sticky but glides on easily. Just fabulous.

  39. I was chosen out of the 50 to trial this product and I LOVE it!!
    It has everything you could ask for in a lip balm,it’s moisturizing and smooth,it’s tinted perfectly so if you want a bit more colour just apply some more. its my go to balm for dry lips i re-apply it all day, I love it , thank you Carmex for such a AMAZING product! 🙂

  40. I have just tried the Pink Carmex and would definitely recommend it. The colour is nice on my lips and the fragrance not at all strong. There is a slightly fresh feel when applied. The coverage is long lasting and I love the slightly slimmer tube. Overall, great and I will be buying again when this tube is finished.

  41. Nice little lip balm, with simple and elegant packaging. I like the sheer pink tint, the slight vanilla flavour and fragrance, the SPF (with no white residue) and of course, it’s moisturising properties, for my always dry lips.

  42. Great eye catching packing with a nice amount of product description on the front and easy to open packaging.
    Upon opening the lid you are hit with an amazingly beautiful scent of coconut. (whisk me away to a Tropical Island please)
    At first glance the pink looks very pink and I was a little scared as pink doesn’t suit me.
    When you put it on you will find that it actually is just as it says ‘sheer tint’. You are left with a beautiful lightly kissed pink tint and a smooth and luxurious feeling on your lips.
    I welcomed the lovely tingle on my lips that all Carmex products give. I think in my mind I put it as I know its working its way into my lips to protect and moisturise them.
    I like that you know when the lid is on properly as there is a little click so I can put it in my handbag and know that the lid will be on it.
    The only thing I don’t like is that Miss 8 has fallen in love with it and it is now somewhere in her room and is ‘hers’. Looks like I need to go shopping.

  43. The ever reliable Carmex moisturising formula for lips now leaves a subtle pink sheen – perfect for the gym, low-key outings or adding shine to lipstick or lipstains.
    Small and easy to carry in a pocket, handbag or clutch – great for women of all ages! Teens will love it because it’s affordable and flattering. Office women will love it because with constant heating/cooling and takeaway coffee, lips need constant rejuvenation! Delivered.

  44. I happen to be a Carmex addict and have been since Oprah featured it as one of her fave things for cold sores. That is what the ‘burning, tingling’ sensation is doing. It’s protecting and conditioning and staving off nasties on the lips. I was a bit worried about the pink as well but as some others have said, it only adds a little colour. I do hope they are going to come up with something that is not tinted as well though.

    I love the smell but the flavour needs some work. I know you’re not supposed to eat it but it should still be a bit more pleasant. I can’t even wear lipstick because my lips are so sensitive and peel at the first drop of most things I use. Not Carmex. I’ll definitely buy this product when it is on the market.

    Thanks to the team and to Carmex for the trial =)

  45. Thankyou to B&L for allowing me to take part in this product trial.

    I’ve been a Carmex user for nearly 15 years now; it has always been a reliable and trusted brand, and this latest addition to the range is no different.

    Firstly, the packaging is very slim and sleek, making it ideal for small clutches and purses. However, I also include this small size as a negative; for nearly $9 you do not get much product, and I think this makes it unattainable for many shoppers.

    The tube is a breeze to wind up, and the cap slips back on with a satisfying click, so you know it’s not going to make a mess of your handbag!

    The product itself is a rather garish bright pink – I was slightly intimidated when I first saw it! But as the production description says, it is very sheer on application, with only a hint of pink colour. It has that classic Carmex scent/taste which I describe as a mixture of menthol and vanilla. For those that aren’t used to menthol, it may cause a slight tingle on the lips.
    I found it to be very moisturising, and I could feel the product on my lips for a good hour after application. I LOVE the fact that it is also spf 15+, as I spend a lot of time outdoors and it is really important to me that I have my lips protected.

    Personally, I actually prefer the clear Carmex products. I have very large lips so the pink looks a little silly on me during the day. But I have enjoyed using it of an evening for a subtle hint of colour and great moisturising properties.

    This product is perfect for anyone who wants a lip product that combines great moisture, sun protection and a hint of colour.

    I probably wouldn’t purchase this, as mentioned, I prefer clear lip products for during the day, and I think this is overpriced for how much you get. But I’m sure it will be a hit with many ladies out there!

    Thanks again, x

  46. So I received my trial today in the post after work. Very easy to apply, glossy and went smoothly but this may it’s downfall as it came off pretty easily and had to reapply my usual clear Carmex before I headed off to the gym. I have an asian skin tone so the pink hue did not really suit my skin colour – abit too bright pink… a more subtle shade of pink would have been better but it probably suits most people’s skin tones. I thought it had abit of an obvious (not overly unpleasant) taste…. prefer it to have less ‘flavour’ if that makes any sense… smell was not offensive or unpleasant. Packaging is nice and simple…. prefer the first release though… will hopefully change my mind and grow on me with a few more applications.

  47. I was very excited to trial this new product from Carmex because I have tried their signature lip balm and I liked it very I much.

    The packaging is very cute and girly which looks pretty much like a lipstick. The actual balm colour looks very dark but after application it’s sheer pink as stated on the packaging.

    I also like the fact that it has got SPF 15 which makes it perfect for application during the day time specially in summers.

    The lip balm is very moisturising and it just glides like a dream without any trouble and it keeps my lips moisturising for a long time so I don’t have to apply it frequently which is a big plush ing for me.
    It has a menthol and caramel smell which u quite like and like the original it leaves a slight tingling sensation which I have no issue.
    Overall I am quite impressed with it and continue to use it… 🙂

  48. Being a first time user of Carmex products, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as I am very fussy with which lip balms I will use.

    My first impression of the Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm in Sheer Pink was that it looked like a mini lipstick. This immediately caught my interest. A product that combined a lip balm and sheer colour was perfect for me.

    This product is the perfect size as it is slim and won’t take up too much room in even the smallest of clutches or purses. Its slick design takes this product to another level. The lid glides off beautifully and when you close it, it ‘clicks’ to ensure it won’t fall off and make a mess in your bag.

    The vanilla and caramel scent makes it a pleasure to slick on your lips before heading out the door in the morning for work or before heading out at night. It glides on smoothly and effortlessly, leaving your lips moisturised but with a hint of colour to dress up your look.

    The slanted tip and added bonus of being SPF15 gives this product an edge over many other lip balms on the market.

    The only downside I feel this product has is that the shade of pink doesn’t suit all skin types, so I would recommend using a tester first to make sure it will suit you.

    Overall, the Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm in Sheer Pink is a great product. When you consider it is a balm and lipstick in one, this is the perfect product for anyone looking for something that combines both of these factors.

  49. I eagerly awaited my Carmex Moisture Plus and when it arrived was was pleasantly surprised.
    I was a little wary of the pink colour at the beginning, thinking it was a little bright…. that is until I put it on. A slight tint to your lips and a oh so creamy lipbalm, with the added bonus of SPF 15.
    It is not at all sticky and glides on so easily. A very light weight lip balm, perfect for the handbag for day of night. It really is the perfect size to have on you at all times.
    Smells beautiful, but not strong which is great.
    The slanted tip makes it easier to apply and get it just where you want it to go.
    It is a product that ticks all the boxes when it comes to lipbalm.

  50. I was super excited to try out the new Carmex Moisture Plus Sheer Pink lip balm. I think the packaging was quite attractive and would probably attract me to it in the first place in the store. Upon opening the lip balm, I was a bit scared as some other mentioned because it was a somewhat bright shade of pink! However, there was no need to be afraid as it was definitely a sheer pink once it was applied. I like that it actually gives a hint of colour, but works/feels like Carmex’s lip balm. In the past I’ve tried some tinted lip balms and it just seems to cake on your lips if there are dry spots or not really work like a lip balm; however, this was no problem for the newest to the Carmex line.

    I love that it has SPF 15 as well, which is certainly important for me. It is easy to apply with the tip and is lightweight and easy to take with you on the go. I can’t say that I noticed the usual tingling sensation that some others have mentioned, but I do notice that when I used the Carmex click stick, so perhaps some are more sensitive to it than others. There isn’t a very strong smell to this lip balm and I think it is actually quite nice. All in all, I can’t say that I really have any negatives unless you are looking for something that gives you a bit more colour – as this is what it says it is – sheer. But if you want to add a touch of colour, whilst having a great lip balm, then I would definitely recommend trying out the Carmex Moisture Plus Sheer Pink!

    Thanks Carmex and Beauty and Lace 🙂

  51. Loved the colour and how it glided on. Long lasting and a pick me up without actually wearing makeup! The only problem I found with it was that I used it for the first day then couldnt find it, only to discover that my daughter had comendeared it as her own. Oh well, off to the shops to get my own!

  52. I also got to trial this product. Personally, I love how it feels on application (the tingling referred to in another review) and its texture (moisturising but also light once applied). It also feels quite long lasting, keeping my lips feeling plump and moisturised. The knowledge that it contains an SPF factor is an added incentive for daily wear.

    Colour wise it offers a sheer pink. Whilst not convinced that this is ‘my’ colour (I prefer bright red as it always makes me feel glamorous and, I believe, makes my teeth appear whiter too), fans of pink should be happy.

    I will definitely continue to wear this when I am wanting to condition my lips and add a touch of colour to a fairly natural, fresh look.

    Thank you for the opportunity of reviewing this product!

  53. The first thing apparent about the Carmex Moisture Plus balm is the colour – while a very bright pink in the tube, once applied it’s a gorgeous pink tint, natural enough not to seem articifical, but it definitely gives your lips that something extra and it really makes your entire look just that bit more put-together. It seemed to really suit my skin tone as well! I’m a big fan of dark eye make-up so usually pass on the lips (aside from clear balm), but this has become my new favourite – it gives me a bit of pretty colour without looking too busy.

    While the scent is sweet, the taste is virtually the same as the existing Carmex products and it does have that bit of menthol-type coolness to it, so if you’re not a fan of that, it probably isn’t the product for you. I love the tradition Carmex balm, though, so this was perfect to replace it when I’m going out somewhere, and I still use the traditional Carmex at night. The only improvement I can think of would be the taste – again, it’s the same as regular Carmex balm, which is fine for me, but it might turn a lot of lip gloss users away.

    Last – but certainly not least – it performed just as well as regular Carmex balm to soften and moisturise my lips! As someone who uses Carmex daily, having a tinted product in the range is a really great move, and I’m definitely going to buy it again!
