Guess what everyone? Winter is coming soon. I know you don’t want to hear it, especially since half the country is still experiencing or recovering from record-breaking heat waves. But it’s true. The kids are going back to school, before you know it Halloween will be here, and the major drop in temperatures will be hot (or cold) on its heels. With the frigid air outside and the dry air indoors, winter usually heralds the return of “lip balm season” for me. Of course, I’m somewhat of a lip-balm addict year round, but I especially need an extra boost of soothing moisture come those chilly months.
As part of the Carmex Blog Squag, I recently received a package with a Carmex Lime Twist click stick, a Carmex Vanilla click stick, a really cute picnic blanket, and a bonus Carmex Moisture Plus clear satin gloss finish. I signed up for the Blog Squad because I’ve always loved the tingly goodness of Carmex. I think it’s a subconscious thing with me, if skin care product tingles, it must be working. Maybe it’s a throwback to my teenage years, where just about every face cream and makeup remover produces a major tingling sensation.
Once upon a time, Carmex only came in little jars. Those were fine, except I always managed to get the product in the little jar all gunked up before I used the whole thing. I’m so glad they come in click sticks now, especially since Jake has a tendency to dunk his entire finger into the jar-type lip-balm, using half the jar in one swipe. I really like the Lime Twist flavor; it has quite the zing without the sugary-sweet aftertaste. The Moisture Plus doesn’t have quite the zing, but it does leave a nice, glossy sheen! By the way, that zing comes from the menthol and camphor added to the balm to help soothe chapped lips. Carmex also contains SPF 15, so it helps protect your lips from the sun. Both the Lime Twist and the Vanilla Click Sticks have three extra moisturizers not found in the original Carmex line, so they’ll keep your lips extra soft. These Carmex products are available at Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS.
