Trendy Looks And Soft Lips From Carmex {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received free products from Carmex but all thoughts are my own.)

Every woman has a style of her own. Some are more classic, some are edgier, and some are always showing off the latest trends. I used to be trendier but started to stick with a more classic look as I headed into my mid-twenties and beyond.

Carmex, wanting to help each woman embrace her own unique style, created a Limited Edition collection of lip balms. There are four designs: chic black & white, adventurous leopard print,  trendworthy purple, and a whimsical colorful print. There is a quiz online where you can discover which stick best aligns with your personal style. I took the quiz and got “chic”.

 GIVEAWAY:

One reader will win the collection of Moisture Plus lip balms

Carmex Lip Conditioner Review

Here’s a great idea for a stocking stuffer: Carmex Lip Conditioner. I love the flavored lip balms that Carmex has so I wanted to try the lip conditioner because it’s orange flavored. The flavor and scent reminds me of the orange and vanilla ice cream bars so it won points there. I found that the lip conditioner was creamier and not as sticky as their regular lip balm. This Carmex lip conditioner could be worn under lipstick or lip gloss or alone. I’ve been wearing it alone and like the shiny look of my lips and I feel like my lips are protected and stay moist when I’m outside in the cold weather. My lips still felt nice and smooth hours after the product had worn off.

Here are more details about the product from Carmex’s website:

Like your lip balm on the lighter side? Our Lip Conditioner absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, plus we blend a hint of natural orange flavor with 13 moisturizers to deliver extra-soothing results.

  • Your skin’s lipid bilayer is made up of two layers of fatty acids; its job is to help keep moisture in the skin. Our Lip Conditioner includes lanolin, which replicates the way the lipid bilayer in your skin retains moisture.
  • Our formula includes dimethicone to aid with moisturization and protect the tender skin on your lips.
  • Our Lip Conditioner uses allantoin to effectively aid with moisturization plus help healing.

Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream Collection {Review and Giveaway}

Did you know that Carmex makes skin care products? I didn’t! When Carmex sent me some healing lotion and cream to try I was interested to see how it would compare to their lip care line. I opened one of the tubes and smelled it. The lotion smelled pretty strong with a hint of vanilla. It reminded me of the vanilla lip product I had tried a couple months ago. I put it on my hand and discovered that when I rubbed it in it wasn’t greasy and the smell wasn’t as strong. The lotion also seemed to last after I washed my hands which is a great perk since, with two kids, I would be having to put it on constantly if it washed off.

Carmex Review and Giveaway

As part of the Carmex blog squad I get to try out new Carmex products. This past month the company sent me three of their newer products. I tried the Carmex Vanilla Click Stick, Carmex Lime Click Stick, and the Carmex Moisture Plus Clear Satin Gloss Finish.

My favorite was the Carmex Vanilla Stick. Vanilla is one of my favorite scents so I loved the smell of it. I like that I feel a little tingle when I put the lip balm on my lips because it seems like I’m feeling my lips heal. My lips looked shiny when I had it on (as opposed to some that make my lips look matte and dull). After a couple days of wearing it I notice that my lips are smoother which is my main reason for wearing the chap stick in the first place. I also liked the Moisture Plus chapstick. I didn’t like the flavor and scent of the Lime one because I’m not a fan of Limes but Sinisa liked it.
