Carmex Lip Balms Review & Giveaway

3:38 PM

I cannot believe that we are at the end of July already! This summer has flown by and with it has come so many warm and sunny days...wait...I meant to say HOT and sunny days!!! I am not a person who enjoys the heat. Some people that I know could live outside in the sun but not me. I would rather stay inside in my central air and watch the sun shine outside. LOL! My children love to be outside though and because of them, I try to get out at least once a day whether it is for some play time in the back yard or for an evening walk to the park. Being in the air conditioning all day long certainly has its benefits but one thing that happens is the air gets very dry. Because of this I find myself using lip balms and lotions more often. 
Well, today I am going to share a fantastic company with you that I have reviewed in the past. They continue to be a top favorite for me and I use their products regularly. Carmex is a company that makes luscious lip balms and lotions for every day use. It has been so fun being a part of their blogger outreach program because when they get a new "flavor", I get to try it out and talk about it on my blog! YAY! Before I continue on, here is some additional information about Carmex...

Carmex® lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars.

Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.

Carma Labs employs about 100 people and is still owned and operated by the family: Alfred's grandsons Erik and Paul Woelbing. The Woelbing stove is now used for cooking things the family can actually eat.

As I have mentioned before in previous reviews of Carmex, I love their packaging. The signature yellow label is so eye catching, it is hard to miss! Carmex certainly has grown into a product of it's own caliber and popularity.
So, for this review I was sent a kit that consisted of a large Carmex beach tote and six sticks of Carmex Lip Balm...including their newest flavor, Pomegranate! The flavors of what I was sent are:
Original, Strawberry, Cherry, Vanilla, Lime Twist and Pomegranate.
I have always loved using Carmex because it is soooo smooth and silky on my lips. Their balms are made with ultra moisturizers, which is why they feel so great when applied.
The newest flavor, Pomegranate, is fantastic! It is yummy and smells so fruity. I put it on over 1/2 hour ago and it still smells great. As with all other Carmex Sticks, this one contains water resistant properties so you can use it at the beach, the pool or anywhere else you may be getting wet. It is so easy to forget to protect your lips when out in the sun, Carmex makes it simple to remember!
My daughter also LOVES to use Carmex. I keep a stick in my car, and also in my diaper bag. She knows right where to find one if she needs some "lipstick", as she calls it. :) Her lips always get super dry because she bites them and Carmex really helps to heal and soothe them when they are sore...which is great. I don't go far without a Carmex stick in my bag. 
The Carmex brand can be found at most all major shopping centers, grocery stores and drug stores. Prices vary depending on what you are purchasing. You can find a store near you by utilizing the store locator on Carmex's website

So, in my opinion...Carmex is a wonderful brand! I love the sticks that I was sent and the newest flavor, Pomegranate is sooo yummy! The formula that is used to create these sticks makes them so smooth and easy to apply, plus I love the way that my lips feel after using them! I would definitely recommend these and all other Carmex products to anyone!
Carmex has offered to give away the same kit I received to one of my readers! You can win everything pictured above! Here are your entry options...
