As part of the Carmex Blog Squad, I received these two skin care lotions to test out and review. This past winter has been particularly tough on my skin and my five year old's skin. It really bothered my son to find his hands sore, dried out and sometimes bleeding from the constant hand washing and cold weather. I let him use these two Carmex products, the hand lotion and the hand cream, to see if it would help. He reported that he really liked the smell of the products and that they smelled like vanilla to him, one of his favorite flavors. I personally prefer unscented products, but the scent of these skin care products dissipated fairly quickly, which I liked.
Overall they seemed to hydrate our skin. The hand cream is obviously thicker than the lotion and works great to put on at night before bed. We used the hand lotion during the day. My son did not protest using either product and was happy with the relief he felt from having hand lotion on his dry skin. I think they would have worked even better if we had been using them prior to the chapped skin, as they might have given us a layer of protection. (Something to remember for next winter!)
