Carmex New Flavors and Picnic Blanket Prize Pack #Giveaway CLOSED

Friday, August 19, 2011 Posted by Dina N

I love lip balm. There, I've said it. I have lip balms in my purses, backpacks, car, kitchen, desk, nightstand - you get the idea. Of course, I've used Carmex in the past but never knew that the popular lip balm has been around for over 70 years. And it all started on a family stovetop! For 20 years, Alfred Woelbing and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the now familiar yellow-capped jars.

Today, Carmex still has the classic jar but the company has added new lip balm flavors, a lip balm line for women, and a line of skin care products. The ubiquitous jar has gone green - there is 20% less plastic in it thanks to a more concave bottom. The Carmex lip balm has also come out of the jar - there are tubes, sticks, twist sticks, and tints. Speaking of sticks - I got to try their two newest items: ultra moisturizing Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks.

I've always liked vanilla, so the Carmex Vanilla click stick was an instant hit. I was somewhat surprised that I loved the fresh lime twist flavor just as much. Both lip balms are ultra moisturizing and offer sun protection with SPF 15. In my book, that makes them perfect for summer, winter and the seasons in between.

The main ingredients in the Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks are beeswax and camphor. Just as the other Carmex lip balms I've tried, these two soothe and protect my lips from the elements. The lime twist and the vanilla are the yin and yang of flavors - one fun and fresh, the other soft and subtle. Last but not least - these lip balms are tested on family members, not on animals.

I also got to try the Carmex Moisture Plus® lip balm in clear satin gloss finish. This balm is similarly ultra moisturizing and has a SPF 15. It contains Vitamin E and aloe, pampering my lips and giving them a subtle shine.

Last but not least, I received the cutest picnic blanket - soft and cuddly on top, water resistant on the bottom. My kids immediately put together an indoors picnic - it's still too hot outside but we are looking forward to having a real picnic in a few weeks. The Carmex picnic blanket folds up nicely into a "purse" shape with a handle and a zippered pocket. Hooray for fresh air fun!

The Giveaway
One lucky U.S. reader will win a Carmex Prize Pack, including all four products I reviewed!

Here's what's going to be in the prize pack:
1 Carmex Lime Twist click stick

1 Carmex Moisture Plus® clear satin gloss finish

      I use Carmex all the time - I love it, so I'm pretty excited to try to win that (and I don't have a picnic blanket, so I'd say I'm excited to try to win that too)
