Carmex Has Done It Again
It is no secret that I love Carmex. It is also no secret that I love all of their products. So why would a trial run of their orange scented Moisture Plus Stick be any different? I'll tell you why - you may want to come in a closer so I can whisper this is your ear. I don't want Carmex to hear that >looking both ways for eavesdroppers< I don't like artificial orange flavored/scented stuff. Whew! That's a burden off of my shoulders.
Seriously though, I have never been a fan of orange...the color...the flavor...the fruit...the word. I mean really, every pronunciationof the word, whether one syllable or two, sounds odd. (The one exception is the classic push-up pop. That is a childhood staple and it would be un-American of me not to at least enjoy those.) Needless to say, I was wary about trying to marry a product that I really stand behind and a flavoring that I detest.
I shouldn't have worried.
The makers of Carmex totally have things under control. The Moisture Plus Stick is fabulous as you know, and the hint of orange is not a distraction. The orange fragrance is not overpowering and the taste is not like baby aspirin. Instead, you have this almost push-up pop nostalgia going on. It's a very light and slightly vanilla-y scent. I do not dislike it and that is really saying something for me, a certified non-lover of orange, or-ange, ornge (see, it just sounds silly.)
Thanks Carmex for sending me a sample and realizing that maybe not all orange matters need to written off as rubbish.
