Carmex Lime Twist and Vanilla Sticks are Back!

I am a huge fan of the Carmex line of products, I use the lotion, cream, and all of the lip products. Just when I thought things couldn't get better, they did.

 During a holiday season, Carmex introduced two limited edition flavors, Lime Twist and Vanilla click sticks, but then they took them away. I guess my fellow fans and I made enough noise, because they have brought them back and are giving them a permanent place in the product line.

 Carmex always makes great products that work. I suffer from severe dry skin and lips, so having access to products that work consistently is always a want and need, even more so in the winter months, Carmex has never let me down, even my children use the products, I trust them that much.

 Both the Lime Twist stick and Vanilla stick are made to be Ultra Moisturizing, which means not only do they contain the same moisturizers found in the other Carmex products, but they also contain additional ones to help pamper your lips. Both sticks also contain SPF 15, to help protect them from the suns harmful rays. Protecting your lips form the sun help reduce lines and discoloration, so they look younger and more healthy.

Carmex Lime Twist stick has a nice subtle lime flavor, but not the sour kind, more like that of Key Lime pie, the flavor isn't overpowering, just enough to make you stop and realize it is there.

 Carmex Vanilla stick is the same way, just enough flavor to make you notice, but not enough to make you wish you could wipe the stuff off.

 While I enjoyed both flavors, I have to say that Vanilla is my favorite and my girls preferred the Lime. I can also feel the trademark tingle when I apply them to my lips, this lets me know that it is working. With winter just around the corner I will be stocking up on both flavors so we wont run out. You can get your own at your local CVS, Walgreens, or Wal-mart. I also suggest you like Carmex on facebook, they often have coupons to help save money on their products as well as giveaways and information on new and exciting things happening with the Carmex line.

If you are not big on flavored lip balm, you can always try Carmex Moisture Plus line, it offers great Carmex lip products with a touch of shine and they even offer some with a touch of color.

  One lucky reader will get to try all three of these products and will also get a cute picnic blanket that folds up and has its own carry handle and zipper pocket, the pocket is perfect for carrying your Carmex with you.
The winner will receive the following:                                                                                               
  • 1 Carmex Lime Twist click stick
  • 1 Carmex Vanilla click stick
  • 1 Certified Awesome Picnic blanket* (it's really cute)
  • 1 Carmex Moisture Plus® clear satin gloss finish
