Keeping my Lips Moisturized! -- Carmex Review

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Every year around Christmas time we start searching the stores and our minds for great stocking stuffers. I have a perfect option for you!  Whether you are male or female, you have lips right?  Those lips need a little extra love around the winter months, so why not treat them with a top notch brand like Carmex?

The trusted, ultra-hydrating Carmex Moisture Plus technology provides a supreme moisture experience with aloe and vitamin E to protect lips from the damage that can occur during the cold winter months. 

I have been a big fan of Carmex for years.  I remember as a child asking my mother to buy some Carmex for my lips.  The products were great 15 years ago and they're only changing for the better!  

These tubes are the way I prefer to apply my Carmex.  The Moisture Plus line is perfect for me.  It is a tube I can easily use.  A tube that is just big enough that it won't get lost in my purse.  I can also retract the lip balm, without worries that I won't be seeing it again.  (I hate when that happens!)  They're also a great size for my daughter to use them with her little 5 yr old hands!

In the above picture, I chose to go with Carmex instead of lip gloss for my Birthday dinner this past week.  Carmex provides enough shine and so much moisture, the choice was easy!  

Let's talk a little bit about why I choose Carmex.  I have noticed when using this lip balm, I don't have to reapply a coat for quite a while.  I'd say probably 3-4 hours if I haven't had anything to eat in that time.

I love the designs on the tubes!  I know your teens and tweens would have no problem breaking out this tube at school with their friends!  I wouldn't encourage sharing though.  Let's keep our germs to ourselves!
