What's New from Carmex Review & Giveaway

I have been a heavy lip balm user ever since I started junior high school.  I can remember using all the fun "kiddy" lip balms, and back then, I thought it made me grown up!  As I got older, I looked for other lip balms that would really help moisturize my lips and to keep them healthy looking.  About 10 years ago, my mother in law introduced me to Carmex, and I have been hooked ever since!

Carmex has introduced two awesome new items, an ultra moisturizing Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks!  I was lucky enough to receive those items to review, along with a very cute picnic blanket and a Carmex Moisture Plus® clear satin gloss finish.  The Lime Twist immediately caught my attention, because I thought it sounded different.  My daughter, Future FBI, snagged it and has proclaimed it to be, "The absolute best lip stuff I've ever used!"  While she was content with the Lime Twist, I quickly opened the Vanilla and I LOVE it!  The vanilla scent is not overpowering and it makes my lips feel wonderful!  The Moisture Plus clear satin gloss was hidden inside of the pocket of the picnic blanket, and when I found it, I was thrilled.  I put some on over my lip stick and it actually helped maintain the lip color!  I like the idea of having the clear satin gloss, because sometimes, I want something on my lips that is without color and scent!  The fact that these great products have a 15 SPF is a huge plus to me as well!
Here's what's going to be in your kit:
  • 1 Carmex Lime Twist click stick
  • 1 Carmex Vanilla click stick
  • 1 Certified Awesome Picnic blanket*
  • 1 Carmex Moisture Plus® clear satin gloss finish
