Review & Giveaway: New Carmex Flavors

As a member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I recently received two of Carmex's newest products to review! Along with a pretty picnic blanket (that will definitely come in handy here!), they sent on over one each of the Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks for me to try out and share my thoughts on.


Both the Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks are brand new "flavors". They are ultra moisturizing, with an SPF 15 sunscreen in them. They are the usual size so it's super easy to stash one in a pocket or beach bag, and since they are a stick, and not a pot, they are more sanitary for on the go, especially if you don't have access to water easily like when you are hiking. I appreciate that they have the SPF in them because really, who thinks about their lips being sunburned? Most of us don't until it's too late!


I thought the Lime Twist summed up Summer perfectly.


The Vanilla seemed more holiday-ish to me, but I suppose your choice of "flavors" is totally personal too - we all have our preferences! All in all I was pretty pleased with them, and glad to see Carmex mixing it up with a few new "flavors".


Win it! Thanks to Carmex, one lucky reader is going to win the same prize package as the one I received! To enter, share with us which one of the two new flavors you look forward to trying out the most.
