Carmex Summer Swag - Protect Your Lips and Score a Cool Tote, Too!

Most of us recognize the logo easily.  For 75 years, Carmex has been delivering great products for lip care, and now skin care, too.  Carmex is a true American success story.  In the early days when the home remedy became a home business, Alfred Woelbing and his wife made Carmex in their kitchen with a hot plate and poured it into the little glass jars themselves.  Alfred lieved ot be 100 years old.  Imagine how he felt in 1998 when pharmacists ranked Carmex the #1 recommended lip balm?  Carma Laboratories won their first Achievement Award from Pharmacy Times magazine that year, too.  The first of ten in a row.

Carmex continues to be a fan favorite, and they are continually updating their products to meet popular demand.  The addition of SPF was brilliant, as is the addition of flavors, and new delivery styles.  By listening to their fans, maintaining their quality, and using fun marketing techniques, Carmex has been able to deliver 75 years of satisfaction.

Speaking of fun marketing.. look at this cool tote!  It's perfect for the pool or the beach.  The bag opens and has a flat bottom so it stands up easily, and will hold all your towels, books, readers lotions, and snacks.

The handles are sturdy and the rope is covered at the top to protect hands and shoulders.  The straps are strung through grommets and then sewn together, and secured again (and prettified) with the nice yellow canvas pieces.

Bight and cheery - they yellow and white Carmex colors look great for summer fun.  The distinctive logo is on one side, and the other is blank.

The small pouch is attached, so that keys, money, cellphones, and your tubes of SPF 15 Carmex are always easily in reach.

This promotion has five tubes of our favorites, vanilla, original, cherry, lime, and the everyday protecting formula which has a hint of strawberry.  The water resistant lip balms soothe, moisturize, heal chapping, and protect from wind or sun damage.

Also included is the newest flavor, pomegranate.  Behold:

The ultra smooth title is accurate.  It does glide on easily, and feels a bit lighter once it is applied.  One application can provide up to 80 minutes of protection in the summer sun.  And, of course, it *is* pomegranate.. without a doubt the hottest flavor of the year.
