Summer Carmex Review and Giveaway 2012!

Well, we just got back in town last night from our last vacay as parents of one, I had lots to blog about before I left, blogged about nothing when I was there, and now have got to get this review up so you guys can have a chance to win this really great gift set.  It's time for another Carmex giveaway!!

For the last couple of years I have been reviewing and giving away Carmex products. At first it was just a few chap sticks here and there, then last summer they gave away a really cool package with a beach/picnic blanket and this year, I was super excited to receive a beach/pool bag PLUS 6 different flavors of lip balm.  I had just commented earlier in the month that I needed a new beach bag and now here it was!  And I will say, it came in super handy on our vacay last week!



Not only did I get this awesome beach bag that was super roomy and had a magnetic closure, I also received 6 different moisturizing lip balms, or 'click sticks' as Carmex calls them, in all of the flavors they have to offer:  Original, Vanilla, Lime Twist, Strawberry, Cherry and their brand new Pomegranate!  All of the Carmex lip balms have SPF 15, which is a plus in my book, who can't use sunscreen on their lips?  They also all have a cooling sensation, regardless of their flavor.  All of the Carmex balms contain germ-killing menthol and phenol that help to speed up the healing process.  I think the Original flavor speaks for itself and is just a down right smooth feeling balm.  The Vanilla flavor is a little sweet tasting to me and I seem to smell the Lime more than I taste it.  The Strawberry and Cherry are nice, but my favorite was definitely the Pomegranate.  I really think that the flavor is a personal preference and no flavor is better than the next....kinda like ice cream!  In any case, they all have the same smooth, silky feeling and the ever important SPF.  I'm just glad now I have one for my desk, my purse, my bathroom, my car and everywhere in between!
