7 reasons Carmex is every Irish girl's true hero during the winter

Holding out for a hero.

WINTER CAN PLAY havoc on your lips. HAVOC.


The wind, the rain, the cracking, is the chapped lips nightmare combo.

But thankfully, we have a saviour. A knight in shining armour.

This girl went viral on Twitter with her beautiful ode to Carmex, and we must agree

1. We must have one on our person during winter at all times

2. It was the perfect fit to hold in your school shirt pocket

Even though that bitch Lorraine constantly told you it was bad for your lips.



3. But traveled with you even as you got older

Forgetting it was, and still is, THE WORST.

Sure just leave a limb at home, why don’t you?

4. Nothing else really compares

It’s been in your beauty routine for a while now.

5. The smell of it is forever ingrained  in our minds


6. But the flavours were a gamechanger

Good GOD they’re evolving.

7. Honestly, sometimes we don’t even need it, we just like putting it on
