Carmex Review and Giveaway

I've been using Carmex for about 10 years now. A friend introduced me to the product some time ago and I've been hooked ever since. Carmex is the only product that will truly soothe my chapped winter lips and give them the moisture and hydration that they need. I love that in recent years Carmex has branched out with new products to keep their fans happy.



Carmex is a company which offers different scented and flavored chapsticks dedicated to soothe and protect your lips. They now have even produced a line of skincare, Carmex healing lotion. Whether you prefer original carmex, strawberry, cherry, or mint in a tube or jar, they've got you covered.

Since I'm apart of the Carmex Blog Squad, I frequently get sent items to review. Last week I received a small box and when I saw the Carmex return address label I knew it had to be good!

This is what I saw inside:



I received a Carmex branded very cute picnic blanket, and two Carmex click sticks in the flavors of vanilla and lime.

The click sticks are a truly awesome product and I love the design on the packaging too. They are very convenient for putting in your purse or car for easy reach. Instead of having a tube where you could accidently squeeze out too much and have the product ooze out, you can "click" until you receive the desired amount wanted. You won't waste any either! I love that these click sticks offer SPF 15 and protection from the sun, it's always nice when a product contains sun protection as well. The vanilla smells delicious and good enough to eat! The lime has a nice tart smell to it. Both the vanilla and the lime go on smoothly and are not thick at all, but just the right amount. I can feel the chapstick on my lips throughout the day and I barely have to reapply it. I know that the product is keeping my lips hydrated and properly nourished.

The picnic blanket is perfect for having a last minute summer picnic or a early Fall picnic too. Don't forget that you can also take it to the beach while it's still warm outside. The blanket has a nice colorful pattern on it and it's very soft. It also folds up easily and has a pouch that you can store items in like a cellphone, wallet, etc. It's very roomy too and can fit two people perfectly. I love that I have this because I received a picnic basket through another product review and I can now use my blanket and basket!

  6. My husband and I just adore picnics!! We used to bring around a huge heavy quilt, but it gets to be too much to carry sometimes. I would love to have a smaller picnic blanket that would be easier to bring our on excursions!! I just love the carmex brand also, it's the only one my husband will use!

  19. I'd like to win because I can never have too many lip balms. I go through lip balms like crazy. I also tend to have lip balm casualties, as I almost always have one in my pocket and forget that it's there til the empty tube falls out of my laundry :( lol.
