I've shared my addiction to lip balm here before and am always buying new ones when I see them. You'll find a lip balm in every coat pocket of mine in the winter, every purse I own, my beach bag, in my car, kitchen drawers, and even my knitting bag. Nothing annoys me more than having chapped lips! Being a Carmex Blog Squad member gives me a great advantage to try the newest Carmex lip balm flavors, and feed my addiction!
This month I am using Carmex's Pomegranate Stick and I love it! I think it is my favorite of their fruit scents. It is a lightly sweet, fruity scent that is not at all overpowering, and it feels great on my lips. It has a broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, which makes it a great daily lip balm in the summertime. I hate overly sticky feeling balms, or super waxy ones. This Carmex lip balm is perfect for everyday use for me. I like that it feels light on my lips, isn't tinted with an artificial color and does not have an odd taste. I've tried most of the current flavors Carmex offers and while the vanilla, cherry, lime twist and strawberry are nice, the pomegranate is definitely my favorite scent. I also love the classic Original Stick. There is just something about it that reminds me of cold winters at the bus stop with my little pot of lip balm to soothe my chapped winter lips!
Carmex sent me an awesome beach bag filled with six lip balms to enjoy this summer: Original Stick, Cherry Stick, Strawberry Stick, Vanilla Stick, Lime Twist Stick, and the New Pomegranate Stick. My son is begging me to share with him, so I'm letting him pick one to use (with supervision!) Since they are not tinted, it is ok for him to use as he cannot "paint" anything with color! He also has shared Carmex lip balm with me before and has not had a bad reaction to them. In fact, when he has chapped lips he asks to use my lip balm and it really seems to help him heal.
So while I'll be sharing my lip balms with my son, I can also share with you.
