Anyone who has been into a Primark store recently knows that Primark offers a range of products other than just clothes and accessories, and as with most stores these products are placed right next to the payment counter. Sometime last year I made the usual stop at Primark..Okay, I confess, it was my umpteenth stop during my two week stay...As I dragged the Primark bag on the floor beside me, with additional items in my arms, I spotted a bowl of lip balm just as I was about to pay...and as I always do, I bought a product which I had not intended to buy...That's how the journey between my Carmex lippie and I began:
Packaging: It comes in a tube, which is super convenient, because it means that you do not have to constantly stick your bacteria infested fingers into it. I have been using this lippie for about a year now and I think the tube is manufactured so that you use every last bit of it (just squeeze from the bottom), which is a plus in my books.
Directions: Apply liberally and evenly as often as necessary. For external use only.
My two kobos:
I love this lip balm. It is the only lip balm that I have consistently used over a long period of time. It smells like mint and feels minty, which is stating the obvious. I feel that a little goes a long way. I try to avoid putting too much on, otherwise it gives that 'ororo' look (like you have just eaten really greasy fried plantains). Once applied, it gives off a tingly sensation on your lips...which makes you feel like it must be working...I use this through out the day because I have really dry lips..it usually sits on my desk at work or in my purse...I find that when I use it consistently it makes my lips feel really moisturised and they look it too!
Where can you get it in Nigeria:
Generally, try any pharmacy around you...
I spotted some Carmex lippies (the ones in the Jars though) at the CasaBella Beauty Store at the Palms, Lekki.
