Carmex Lip Balm Has New Flavors! Here's My Review and a #Prize Pack #Giveaway - @CarmexLipBalm

Carmex Logo
I remember the first time I ever used Carmex. When I was younger, all they had were the little glass pots, and one flavor - but it worked better than anything I had ever used on my chapped lips. I have never been without any since. When they started making the squeeze tubes in 1988, I was one of the first to buy one.

Carmex now has quite a few flavors,  styles, and even skin cream.

I just had the chance to try the two newest flavors, Lime Twist and Vanilla.  These Ultra Moisturizing Twist Sticks soften the lips, and protect them with an SPF of 15.

Both lip balms go on smooth, have a light, pleasant scent, subtle taste, and left my lips feeling great! These are a great choice for days when I'll have exposure to sun or wind, but are great for every day wear, too. You can find Carmex products at CVS, Walgreens, Target and many other retail locations.

The Carmex company has been in business for over 70 years, and their products are made here in the United States of America.  Founded by Alfred Woelbing in the 1930's, Carma Labs is still a family run business, with one of his grandsons acting as the President, and another grandson as CEO.  The whole story, from founding to present can be read on the website.   Hard work and entrepreneurial spirit have made Carmex an American staple!

You can follow Carmex by visiting their fun, interactive blog at , following them on Facebook, and also on Twitter.  As a follower, you'll be invited to sign up for giveaway chances and you'll be among the first to learn about new products and promotions.

My samples arrived as part of this cute prize pack.  The striped thing that they are tied to is a picnic blanket!  it folds up as shown and can be carried by the handle.  There's a zippered pocket to hold keys or a phone, too.  (I should have thought to move the packaging out of the way so you could see the blanket better!) The Carmex logo is on the pocket, too.  The top is soft, and there is a protective underside.
