CLOSED - Carmex Review and Giveaway!


As many of you know, I am a member of the Carmex blog squad and I was recently sent this AWESOME Carmex Summer package to review.

Included in the package were the Carmex Vanilla Moisturizing lip balm, Carmex Lime Moisturizing lip balm, Carmex Moisture Plus gloss and a very cute Camex fold up beach blanket.

Let's start with the Carmex Vanilla Lip Balm. If you have ever had any kind of Carmex product, then you know it has a very distinct taste and smell. The Carmex Vanilla Lip Balm has that same Carmex taste and smell with a hint of vanilla. I like the tube a lot better than the little tubs of Carmex and this seems to go on much smoother. It also has an SPF 15 which makes it great for any time of the year since our lips are always out in the elements.

On to the Lime. I LOVE the new Carmex Lime Moisturizing lip balm!!!! It has all the same qualities that the Carmex Vanilla lip balm has, but a great lime scent and flavor. It's like having a tropical drink every time you put it on. What's not to like about that???

Next up was the Carmex Moisture Plus clear satin gloss. The gloss contains Aloe, Vitamin E and SPF 15. I like the gloss for everyday wear and to wear it over a lipstick to give it some extra gloss. It goes on silky smooth and it looks a little nicer that the other lip balms. It's not flavored, so it tastes just like regular Carmex. I like the tingly feel when you put it on :-) Carmex Moisture Plus satin gloss always comes in tints.

As an extra bonus, Carmex included a cute striped blanket that fold up for easy storage with a velcro closure. It even has a zipper pocket on the outside for carrying your little extras and a nice handle to make it easy to carry. This would be perfect to keep in the trunk. Great for your kids sports games or the beach.

Go check out all the Carmex products on their website here and keep up on all the latest Carmex news on their Facebook page here.
