Carmex Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm Review and Giveaway

The makers of Carmex recently sent me a summer fun kit containing a really cute picnic blanket, as well as their new Lime Twist and Vanilla Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balms. These premium lip balms have a rich new feel, come in smooth new flavors and contain three additional moisturizers not found in Carmex's original line, including SPF 15 sunscreen. And for all you animal lovers out there, these products are not tested on animals. Carmex products are available at your local Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS.

What I Think About These Lip Balms
I first tried the Carmex Lime Twist Stick in the evening shortly after receiving this package in the mail. It went on smooth and felt great when applied to my lips. This lip balm kept my lips feeling moisturized for the rest of the night, even after showering. My lips even felt soft and smooth the next morning. The Lime flavor is really great but it's not overwhelming. Next, I tried the Carmex Vanilla Stick shortly after arriving to work at approximately 5 a.m. The vanilla flavor is only slight and not overwhelming at all. When I left work that day approximately 8 hours later my lips were still  moisturized and were extremely soft and smooth.

Overall I was very, very impressed with the Carmex lip balms. One application literally lasted all day long. I have tried other lip balms that I have loved and have worked well but they were not nearly as affordable as the Carmex brand. Also, the picnic blanket that I received in the kit was of decent size and I loved the design. It was very soft and comfy on one side and on the other side it was made of a material that wipes off easily and does not allow dampness, dirt, etc. to get through, perfect for picnicking. It was also very easy to fold back up and doesn't take up much room and would be very easy to take along for a picnic.
