Do you know Carmex? Vanilla, Lime and a Contest, too!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from Carmex. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

Do you know Carmex?  I must admit... other than the iconic little jars - I had no idea.

I am not sure why, but those little jars, of what I would come to find are the best thing ever, confused me.  Sue me, I'm weird like that.  I have issues using my finger to smear something on my lips that I may or may not like there.  It took me into my late 20's to eat wings because I was afraid of the sauce on my lips and face... do you think I would deliberately smear something there with my own finger, that I was unsure of...? Uh, no.

Then...  I got an email asking me to join their "blog squad," I checked out the website - It is cute, hip, tough and informative all rolled up nicely into one big ball jar of world wide web goodness.  I loved the website so much I went out and bought a jar of that wonderful stuff and have thrown out the sticks for the chapped lips.

I was especially excited because my soon-to-be-first-grader-but-isn't-yet gets crazy chapped lips in the winter.  I mean to the point he gets that red ring around his lips from all the licking he does when his lips are dry.  It is ridiculously bad!  This year I am prepared - but, enough about that, let me tell you what I got in the mail last week.  My first "Blog Squad" prize pack!  Two new flavors to try, Carmex Moisture Plus, a picnic blanket and... I get to give the whole kit and caboodle away, too!!!

what you could win!

First things first - Do you know what Carmex is?  Invented on the family stove top in 1937, Carmex Lip Balm is made the same now - with all natural ingredients as it was first made by Alfred Woelbing all those years ago. In fact, his grandsons now run the company.  Carmex Lip Balm has menthol (see ma not just in cigarettes), camphor, phenol, lanolin, coco butter and a bunch of other wonderful ingredients that soothes and heals chapped lips, keeps lips moist and even alleviates the pain that occasionally accompanies chapped lips. I use this stuff instead of lip gloss, now.

As a bonus, the great folks of Carmex have two new flavors: Vanilla Stick and Lime Twist Stick!  Both, sticks smell amazing - just like vanilla cake and a freshly picked lime, however, I could not taste it when I put it to my lips.  I actually like that I can not taste it because I would be licking my lips the whole time I wore it if it tasted to good.  The smell is enough!

I offered it to the baby and she tried to eat it and my soon-to-be-first-grader-but-isn't-yet loved it so much he tried them one after another.  Together they smell like key lime pie.  Or, I'm just hungry for key lime pie, either way the smell alone sold me on these but the familiar tingle when I put it on sold me the rest of the away.

All though the flavors are great - they make me hungry.  So my favorite of the three I was sent was the Carmex Moisture Plus and now that they are tinted, well, I may never wear lipstick again.  Okay, maybe never, but you know what I mean...

Now... the best part!  You can win the same prize pack, complete with both flavors and a super cool picnic blanket - soft on one side, waterproof on the other and it all rolls up neatly; secured by Velcro.
