Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm

I have a massive lip balm problem, I have previously mentioned my Lip Balm Love. I carry one in everything, they are in my bedside table and in my desk draw at work. Though I just like a standard lip balm when I look for a lipstick I tend to go for tinted or sheer lipsticks so when I spotted these I had to have them!
These are Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm in Sheer Pink and Sheer Peach.

What Carmex say,

'With a little help from vitamin E and aloe, Carmex Moisture Plus™ lip balm helps nourish and moisturize lips leaving them so kissably soft they will be hard to resist. With SPF 15, Carmex Moisture Plus protects your lips from the sun so you can play all day and know you’re covered.'

These retails at around £4.49 and now come in Clear, Sheer Pink, Sheer Peach, Sheer Berry and Sheer Plum. As I said I choose Pink and Peach,
The packaging is nothing amazing but I don't mind it, though it is easier to use then the Carmex tubs. From the image above the colours do look quite pigmented, and below you can see they actually give a nice wash of colour. Its much more than I expected from them.

The pink is on the left with the peach on the right. From the swatches I love the peach and on the lips its the same. Here is the pink,

and here is the peach.

These have a similar smell to the original Carmex and gives you a similar tingle on your lips. I love how you can just pop them on quickly for a wash of colour. They also contain shea butter to help your lips now in the winter season. These are nourishing on and would be a great addition your handbag.

Have you tried these?

Thanks for the review. Too bad I can't find the colored ones in Canada. So far I've only seen the clear Moisture plus.
