My summer weekends are always full of boating, camping, and plenty of sunshine. I don’t know about you, but I always end up with chapped lips after a weekend out and about. I’m into lip glosses which look great and add color, but they don’t help or prevent chapped lips, so I was excited when Connie asked me to review and giveaway some Carmex lip balm sticks to our readers.
When I think of Carmex, I usually think of the menthol tingling Carmex I use during winter – my husband and I are avid snowmobilers so we use a lot of the original Carmex in the jar to keep our lips it great shape. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out that Carmex comes in a fun summer version!
Sunscreen SPF 15. Click stick movement control technology. Long-lasting relief for dry chapped lips. It soothes. It heals. It protects. Suffering from chapped lips and occasional cold sores, Alfred Woelbing invented Carmex lip balm in Milwaukee in the 1930s. Formulated with a variety of natural ingredients, the mixture was hand poured into small jars, which Alfred would sell to pharmacists from the trunk of his car. Over the last 70 years, people have come to love the lip balm that works like no other. Carmex lip balm tested on family members – not on animals.
The summertime sticks come in six flavors: Original, Cherry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Lime Twist and Pomegranate (the newest flavor!) with my favorites being the Strawberry and Pomegranate! Both were tart and sweet at the same time – such a nice mix! I’ve scattered the new balms all over my house and work so I’m never too far from a stick of Carmex. I love that they have a SPF 15 and that they’re waterproof (up to 88 minutes) so if I’m out on a boat, swimming in the lake, or walking my dog, my lips are protected from both the sun and the sea!
The tubes are full of ultra-moisturizing Carmex so my lips are feeling quite pampered right now. I love that my Carmex is no longer just for my winter sports, but now my lips are protected year-round. The formula still has the tingle so I know I’m wearing it and I noticed that I’m no longer chewing on my lips during the day – I have a tendency to do this when I’m in deep thought at work or at home. I highly suggest trying the new flavors to vary your normal Carmex experience.
