Celebrate Carmex’s New Flavors of Lip Balm with This Great Giveaway!

I hate having dry lips, so I’m always pulling lip balm out of my purse and applying it on-the-go. It’s also a “must” before I climb into bed to keep my lips soft while I sleep! So, I was really excited to be given the opportunity to try new ultra moisturizing Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks! I love that these products are super-moisturizing, plus they also contain sunscreen (SPF 15), which is very important in the warm climate where I live. Both go on clear and are long-lasting. I love the flavors, too. They’re subtle, so I’m not tempted to lick them off, but just flavorful enough to be fun. If you’ve tried Carmex lip balms previously, you might want to know that these two new flavors have three additional moisturizers that aren’t found in the original line.

If you like your lip balm unflavored, you’ll want to try Carmex Moisture Plus! It comes in a sleek silver tube, similar to a lipstick, and you can even get it in a sheer color: Sheer Pink, Sheer Peach, Sheer Berry, or Sheer Plum. I really like this product, too. Like the click sticks, it’s super-hydrating to keep your lips from feeling dried out. And it has a little more “elegant” look to it so I can use it when I’m dressed up!

You can find Carmex products at Walgreen’s, Walmart, CVS, and other stores. Visit them online through the links below.
