There are only a couple of names that come to my mind when people ask if your lips are dry. One of the most prominent names in the lip moisture industry is Carmex, and I must say that I was extremely excited when I was introduced to their two new flavors of lip balm – Carmex Lime Twist and Carmex Vanilla click sticks.
One great feature of these “click sticks” is truly in the name of the product. Instead of turning the dial and the entire tube jutting out and causing you to have to retract a portion of what you turned, the click stick allows you to truly hear and control the amount of product that you choose to use!
I recently gave birth to our second child and between the delivery, the hospital stay and the 60 plus days of 100+ degree temperatures in the Dallas heat, chapstick and lip balm were a must have. These two click sticks were a great resource in a great time of need, as my lips were parched! Not only do the Carmex click sticks refresh dry lips, but they also provide much needed SPF 15 to prevent the blazing sun from burning my lips.
Carmex provided a .15oz tube of each of their new flavors to me to try! Fun!
The lime twist was not my favorite, but it was still moisturizing and refreshing on my lips. It brought me back to a time when I was on the beach – not that it was too long ago – but lime, in general, is not my favorite flavor. The vanilla twist was definitely my favorite of the two, as it too had the intense rehydration that I needed, but also had the right amount of vanilla to be enjoyable.
Ultimately, though, my favorite product that I received to test was Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm. It has a sleek design, featuring a stainless steel tube and mimics that of a thin lipstick tube. It, too, has SPF 15, but also has aloe and Vitamin E infused into it. Carmex boasts many shades within this line, but the one that I tested, the clear, was my favorite, as I could wear it over my lipstick to create a healthy lip and smile!
I am pretty particular about which products I use in general, so it is nice to know that the Carmex brand click sticks have the same effective ingredients found in their standard line, including beeswax, salicylic acid and methol, but also incorporate three additional moisturizers not found in the original line. In addition, Carmex is going green, which makes me extremely happy! The product and the amount are the same but we are eliminating 20% of the plastic from the jar bottom. This will save 35 tons of plastic from being wasted and from being shipped so less fuel will be used.
Carmex is the go-to brand when I am looking for a new tube of chapstick, and with great new products coming down the pipeline, such as these, it makes me extremely excited to see the future! As a mom, I’m always looking for a great product in a convenient location and these great new Carmex products can be found at Walgreens, Walmart and CVS!
