Are your lips getting chapped? (Carmex Review & Giveaway)

I am not a lipstick girl.  In fact, I didn't even wear it on my wedding day.  For some reason, wearing lipstick makes me feel too noticeable.  I'm not really someone that enjoys being the center of attention . . . I actually prefer to blend in a bit.  So, when Carmex sent me their Moisture Plus Lip Tints to review I was a little concerned.   "How am I going to review a product that I wouldn't normally think to try on my own?"  After a little motivation and a day out with a friend, I can now post my thoughts and opinions.  Before I do though, I'll tell you about about this product.
The best of both worlds are coming together with real moisture meeting light, sheer color.  Perfect for any occasion and easy to apply - no mirror required!  Formulated with Vitamin E, Aloe, Shea butter, and SPF, Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lip balm gives you moisture, a hint of shine and color all in one sleek package.   (from the back of the package)
Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Tints are available in two colors, sheer pink and sheer peach.  Both colors have a slant tip, SPF 15, and Vitamin E and aloe moisturizing protection.  Personally, I prefer sheer peach because it is more the natural color of my lips, however neither color is too strong.  While I still prefer traditional Carmex in the jar or the original Moisture Plus, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the Tints.  The slender tube with the slant tip is definitely a plus.  It isn't large and bulky in your pocket or purse, and it is very easy to apply.  I also really like the looks of the tube.  It just looks a little "classier" than a standard lip balm tube.  I don't know if it is just my preconceived notions or not, but the Tints don't seem to last quite as long as the original product did on my lips and don't feel quite as smooth.   I will say that the Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Tints are great for date night (for me).  They give my lips a touch of color without making me feel like I stand out in the crowd.  I plan to stick to my normal Carmex products for regular use, but will definitely pull out the Tints for special occasions.

  4. I like the regular Carmex……brings me back to my childhood….that was the ONLY thing we had in the house to use, and now, I still use it. I love the Carmex in the tube…like the chapstick.

  14. I'm like you - only thing I put on my lips is good ol' Carmex (and really, there is nothing better, I have discovered!) - so I guess I would like to see how the peach color looks.
