Two of My Favorite Things

...Carmex and vanilla.  I do love them both so when Carmex asked me to try out their new Carmex Vanilla scented click stick I was really excited to try this perfect combination.  I was not disappointed.

The new Carmex Vanilla click stick stats are as follows:

  • Smooth new flavor

  • Ultra moisturizing lip balm

  • Non-addictive and not tested on animals

  • Contains SPF 15 sunscreen

  • Available in .15 oz. stick 
The bottom line is that the click stick works as well as, if not better than, the original and has a lovely smell. *Suggestion Carmex, since I know you are listening, how about this vanilla scent for your body lotions.  That would be super, thanks.*

 Carmex also has a new Carmex Lime Twist click stick that I was asked to try.  Do you remember the orange Moisture Plus Stick?  Unlike orange, lime is a citrus scent I can get behind.  The new Carmex Lime Twist smells like something from my childhood.  Maybe a Strawberry Shortcake lime doll or something.  I can't quite put my finger on it.  Engineer said it smells like lime Lifesaver candy but I don't think that's it.  It has bothered me for days that I can't recall the smell...I will let you know if I think of it.  Regardless, it is a non-offensive citrusy smell.

Both new click sticks have the signature Carmex tingle effect and both are silky on my lips.  They both have staying power and don't feel greasy.  This is why I love Carmex, they aren't afraid to try new things but they stay true to what makes their products great.

Everyone knows in the winter you need lip salve but in the summer it is just as important.  Going from the drying sun to the equally drying air conditioning makes summer a very important time to take care of your kisser.  The flavored Carmex sticks all have SPF 15 in them to give a little more protection from the sun.

The kind folks at Carmex really know how to request a review with flair. Not only did they send me one of each of the new click sticks to review but they tied the packages onto a nice pic-a-nic blanket and threw in one of those awesome Moisture Plus sticks for fun.  Oh Carmex, you don't have to buy my love but it doesn't hurt to try.

They want to send one of my readers a nice little package too.  So here's the scoop, for each one of these items you will receive an entry for a total of 3 entries per person:

Even if you don't win the give away, everyone wins with this coupon from the Carmex Facebook page.  The week of Aug. 28th, Walgreens will have a Register Reward deal going on with the new Carmex Vanilla & Carmex Lime Twist sticks.

*My review is my personal opinion. I was sent products to review for participating. Like I said before, I really like Carmex products so I would have been very hard on them if they made a product that was inferior to the others in their line. :)
