Review and Giveaway: Carmex Lip Balm

Edit:  Using random.org to pick the winner....commenter #11 won!  Congrats to Krazy Klingers!!!  :)

I love summer!  The kids are home from school, there is a lot of play time, and we are able to have fun outside in the warm weather (when it isn't raining...and we have had a good bit of rain lately!).  We always put on sunscreen to protect our skin from the harmful rays of the sun...and one area that I don't want to forget to protect is my lips!

It is so important to me to protect my lips from the damage the sun can do to them.  I do not like dry and peeling lips!  Carmex recently contacted me and asked me to review 6 flavors of their lip balm - original, cherry, strawberry, vanilla, lime twist and pomegranate!  My 4 year old was just as excited as I was to try these out!  I really enjoyed the smell, a little bit of a tingly feeling, and taste of these lip balms - because, lets face it, a little bit does get on your tongue when you lick your lips!  They went on smooth and I feel that they really do protect my lips with the SPF 15 that is in them...the pomegranate is even water resistant for up to 80 minutes!  That would be a great flavor to take to the beach...we did not have a chance to try it out their yet!  I don't know if I have a favorite flavor yet - so far, I like them all!

One of my readers will be able to try out the 6 flavors of Carmex lip balm and receive this fun tote too! (the lip balm will be in the little pouch when it arrives...at least mine was!)

One lucky reader will win this tote and 6 lip balms!

vanilla is my stand-by flavor but I think I would like to try the lime twist flavor first. Then the pomegranate next.
