Carmex Review & Giveaway


Ok, so I'm a little bit Carmex obsessed! I have been using it since I was a kid. It is the only thing I will use for chapped lips. I love the tingle you get when you put it on. And it WORKS! That's the main thing! My husband and I actually fight over Carmex. He always takes mine and I never see it again. Therefore, I am constantly buying it.

I am very happy to say that I am part of the Carmex Blog Squad! I was sent two new products to review. The new Carmex Moisture Plus! It is ultra hydrating tined lip balm! The colors I got were Sheer Pink and Sheer Peach.

I have been wearing them non-stop since receiving them! I love the hint of color they bring. It's not an overwhelming color. I don't wear lipstick at all and only sometimes wear lip gloss. The two colors I got were very natural looking. For me, it just gave me a nice little glow! :)

I liked that it still gave that Carmex tingly feeling when you put it on. When I feel that I think 'it's working'! These lip balms have vitamin E and aloe which is great for moisturizing protection! It also has an SPF of 15! You can't forget about your lips in the sun! The slanted tip on them makes it super easy to apply!

The sticks themselves were sleek. They fit nicely in your pocket or purse. The tints also stayed on for a good amount of time. I wore mine all day today and I only had to put it on 3 times! Less fuss is perfect for a busy mom!

One of my most favorite thing about these? They are tinted! That means my husband wont be stealing them from me! :) Nice job Carmex! Thank you! :)

The new tints can be found at Walgreens stores and online at Walgreens.com
