Carmex - Review & Giveaway!

I have been a fan of Carmex for what seems like my whole life.  I remember my parents always having the little pots in the house and I like the familiar tingle and soothing that it gave dry, chapped lips.

I always have a little pot on hand, and when my lips are chapped that yellow lid is a comforting sight.  I'm not sure when they started making tubes of chap stick, but I love that they do because it's so much more convenient than the pots.  I do have a bit of the nostalgia factor going on for the pots, which is why I always have one, but I love to keep a stick of Carmex in my purse, and I love, LOVE, love that they make Carmex available in different flavors now as well.  Carmex is currently available in six different flavors!  Original, Cherry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Lime Twist and the NEW Pomegranate Sweet-Tart!  And have you tried the Moisture Plus click sticks?  They are amazing and even come tinted!!  I adore them.

Carmex kindly sent me one of each of the flavors in the chap stick tubes, as well as a super fun yellow beach bag!  It's hard to choose, but my personal favorite is the Lime Twist.   I love it for Summer, and it's so refreshing.  All of the flavors of lip balm smell awesome.  I don't really think they taste very well, but they smell great and they feel even better.  They apply so smooth and make my lips feel great.  Plus, they still have that familiar Carmex tingle that I have grown to love over the years! Did you know, that the famous tingle comes from menthol (which is intended to kill germs and relieve discomfort) and camphor (added to alleviate pain)?  This stuff is packed full of great ingredients to help heal, soothe, and protect.  These premium lip balms are made with an ultra-moisturizing formula, and are complete with an SPF 15, water resistant suncreen (for up to 80 minutes!), so they're great for a day at the beach or a splash in the pool.

As a Proud Member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I'm thrilled to be able to offer you a giveaway of the same beach tote I received, on behalf of Carmex! Giveaway is open to U.S. addresses only.
