Carmex Review & Giveaway

Did you know that Carmex has added Lime Twist to their collection? If you're like  me and LOVE key lime pie, you're going to love this new Carmex flavor. It's not a super strong aroma or taste, it's subtle but there.

My son, who underwent reconstructive lip surgery after a dog bite a few months ago, is supposed to wear sunscreen on his lip daily. Well to put sunscreen on his face is a chore, to say the least. He's 6yrs old and puts up a fight! But he will put this on, loves to actually, and we rub a little extra on his scar. Why? Because it contains SPF 15, as well as all of the other moisturizing ingredients of the Carmex lip balm line. However, these new premium lip balms contain three additional moisturizers not found in the original line.

Did you also know that this same premium Carmex lip balm is available in vanilla flavor? That's right, vanilla. Who doesn't love vanilla flavored products? Well, I'm not personally a fan of vanilla scented candles but I don't have a problem with lip balms! Just like the lime twist flavor, the vanilla is subtle but there. Enough to make you think "Wow, this is nice!" but not not over powering. It also contains 15 SPF (yay!) and the three additional moisturizers not found in the original line.

Maybe you're not looking for something with a flavor twist. Well you can always try Carmex Moisture Plus. It offers a hint of shine (but not so much shine that I won't allow my son to use it!), Aloe, Vitamin E and SPF 15 (yay again!)

Why do I love Carmex products so much? Because they are consistent with their products. Their lip balms are always soft, creamy and smooth to apply. I am always left with smooth, soft lips after applying Carmex products. You won't find dry, cracked lips on this gal! With Carmex on the market, there's no excuse. I am proud to be a Carmex Blog Squad member!

I bet now you'd like to try these lip balms first hand, right? Here is your chance to 'try it before you buy it'! Carmex is going to send one of my lucky readers a Lime Twist and Vanilla stick of lip balm. But wait, there's more! The winner is also going to receive a super nice, compact picnic blanket! It's made of a fleecy/flannel type material, folds neatly and Velcros shut to showcase a nice zipper pocket.

Giveaway is open to US Residents only.
