Carmex + Pomegranate = AWESOME

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times . . . I LOVE Carmex!

While I have used other lip balms over the years, I find that I always return to Carmex.  The smell, the texture, the tingle on my chapped lips that feels like home, is the one I get when I use Carmex.   While I am (and probably always will be) an original jar girl, I have to say that I love all the new options that Carmex now has. Each stick has a SPF of 15 to protect your lips from the effects of the summer sun.  In addition to the original stick, Lime, Cherry, Strawberry, Vanilla, and now Pomegranate varieties are available for people that like a little more flavor in their lip balm. . . like my girls.  Peanut and Pumpkin are flavor girls.  They like lip balm that tastes like candy.  I however, do not like them to have lip balm that tastes like candy.  Instead of applying it, leaving it alone, and allowing it to heal their chapped lips; they apply it, lick it off, make their chapped lips worse, and repeat.   These options from Carmex have a hint of flavor, enough to make my kids willing to use it, but not enough to make them want to eat it.   Awesome!

Lime Twist and Pomegranate are the current favorites in our family!  Lime Twist tastes like a mix between a margarita and lime sherbet.  Pomegranate is a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and unique enough to give it a bit of an edge over a more standard flavor like cherry.   If you aren't a fruity kind of girl (or guy), the Vanilla might be just right for you.  It reminds me a little bit of cookies, but not quite so sweet.  I'm hoping they come out with a coconut variety next summer.   I think that would be just perfect for a day at the beach. 

So, which of my readers is suffering from too much sun?  Which one of you has chapped lips that need the healing help of Carmex?  If you do, and you want to try all six varieties, then now is your chance!  Enter for the chance to win a handy-dandy beach bag (in my favorite color), and some Carmex for your lips.  Good luck!

*Disclosure:  I received the same fun prize pack from Carmex that my winner will receive in exchange for my honest opinions.
