Carmex Sticks Pomegranate Flavor Review and Giveaway


Shortly before heading to California I received a beach tote and 6 lip balm samples from Carmex, including the new Pomegranate flavor. I can always use a big tote, especially one that isn’t like all the others that were purchased at the local big-box store. But more importantly, moisturizing sunscreen lip balm – for the whole family!

I’m one of those people who’s not a lip balm sharer. My lips, my lip balm. Get your own, please! And when it’s 117 outside and you accidentally leave your lip balm in the car. Well, lets just say we go through a lot of lip balm.

Last year I tested out the Vanilla and Lime Twist Carmex Sticks. This year the new flavor is a sweet/tart Carmex SticksPomegranate flavor Carmex Sticks. I like that it’s not cloying but is balanced by the tartness without causing that pucker. With an SPF of 15, it’s great for any climate. Add in the water resistant feature and I’m so glad BabyGirl likes them because I know even when she’s swimming she’s protected. For the best sun protection when using Carmex Sticks it is recommended you apply it to your lips 15 minutes prior to sun exposure and then at least every 80 minutes after swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying or at least every 2 hours. It’s good to have some guidelines to get maximum protection from the sunscreen.

As a child of the 80s, the Carmex pots were my go to product. I even have a few around the house because, well, I’m a sucker for nostalgia. But the Carmex Sticks are much more convenient. And definitely easier for most kids. I like that the Carmex Sticks are made with a food-grade flavor rather than a fragrance because there is a possibility the product will be ingested (seriously, have you seen how quickly kids go through this stuff?).

Since summer’s not over, I want to share a little bit of summer with you! Carmex will provide one of my fantastic readers with their own fun beach tote and 6 Carmex Sticks, including the NEW Pomegranate Flavor. One winner will receive a Carmex beach tote, and one each of the following Carmex Sticks: Original, Cherry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Lime Twist and Pomegranate.

Well, for your contest I would probably try the pomegranate, but all of the flavors sound appealing! I honestly think I’d like any of them, lol! I hope the website works.
