Carmex Review and Giveaway

Carmex is one of those companies who truly cares about their customers and loyal users. They are constantly coming out with new products to keep customers happy and satisfied. Not only do the products smell delicious, they keep your lips moisturized and soft too. When you choose Carmex, you're making a smart decision!



Carmex is a cosmetics company which offers various scents of lipbalms dedicated to soothe and protect your lips. They have recently branched out with a line of skincare which includes healing cream and healing lotion. Whether you prefer original Carmex lip balm, or even the new flavors of strawberry or cherry in a tube or a jar, they've got you covered.

Since I'm a part of the Carmex Blog Squad, I frequently get sent items to review. I recently received a packag, and when I saw the Carmex return address label I knew it had to be good!

When I opened the package this is what I saw inside:


(I'm going to have to figure out what's going on with my pictures because they are displaying correctly, but don't upload correctly. Sorry about this!)

I absolutely love the beach bag! The yellow and white stripes are very summery. The red Carmex logo is featured across the bag. This is wonderful advertising to let everyone about the beach know how amazing Carmex is! The bag is very roomy and it is perfect for taking to the beach and putting a towel, bathing suit, water bottle, and pair of flip flops in. It's made durable and the white rope handles are very cute.

Inside the attached pouch inside was a bounty of Carmex treasure. I received cherry, vanilla, original, lime twist, and a new flavor, pomegranate! When you're not using the pouch for storing your Carmex's in, you can store some money or a credit card in it for easy access for a snack while at the beach.

Carmex's are always so easy to apply and I love how they keep your lips moisturized. The SP5 15 in the balm is great for protecting your lips from the damage of the sun, especially if you're outdoors a lot during the summer.

I had tried the other Carmex varieties before, but the pomegranate was new to me. I was going to put the old favorites aside momentarily, and try the newest member of the Carmex family. The tube has a very cute pink label with a dark purple top. The outer packaging features a delicious looking pomegranate. The lip balm is a traditional click stick, with the pale yellow wax balm inside. The lip balm smells wonderful and is strong. You can notice it the second you take the top off. It applies thickly, but not too thick to bother you. It's a thick enough layer for your lips to feel soft and protected. I did notice a cooling sensation on my lips after application. Pomegranate is one of my favorite fruits, so I was instantly attracted to try this new scent.

Carmex lip balm's are essential for storing in your purse, a gym bag, your nightstand, a medicine cabinet, and a work drawer. Make sure that you have your Carmex handy for whenever you lips quench hydration.

  2. Turns out we love pomegrantes and I like the color. This is a great new flavor for carmex. the chocolate type flavors make me lick my lips, or worse it triggers snack hunger.
    thanks for the review - great product line
