Carmex® Lip Balm Review
Carmex® Lip Balm with SPF 15 is recommended for use on beach holidays because it offers water-resistant sun protection.
What is it? Lip balm with SPF 15
Who can use it? Water-resistant lip balm can be used when you are heading to the beach or pool.
Carmex® Lip Balm has variants- with and without SPF of 15. It comes in many flavours. Carmex® Lip Balms come in a variety of packings like jar, tube and stick; the stick is easiest to apply.
This brand has the advantage of offering water-resistant, broad-spectrum coverage against the UV rays and is recommended for:
- Holidays – may it be a beach, desert or high altitude; exposure to UV rays is high, and lip balm with SPF should be used regularly, even in the darker skin types.
- Fair skin– Fairer skin is more prone to skin cancer on lips, and thus, the regular use of lip balm with Spf is recommended.
- Cancer prevention– Lip cancer is more common in those who have a history of skin cancer in the family. Thus, the use of lip balm with SPF is recommended.
Dermatocare doesn’t recommend the use of Carmex® Lip Balms or Sticks for chapped lips because it has irritating ingredients like camphor, menthol, flavour, salicylic acid, phenol, etc. and Octocrylene can cause allergic reactions.
