Carmex Review and Giveaway-Rafflecopter

I got a new Carmex Blog Squad Kit! I was really excited to see what was in the kit. To my surprise there was an extra goodie inside!! Don't you just love extra goodies??

Here is what was in my kit.

I received a Lime Twist Carmex, Vanilla Carmex, Moisture Plus Lip Balm, and a Carmex picnic blanket. My husband claimed the Lime Carmex for himself. He was nice enough to let me try it first and I didn't really like it. I'm not a huge lime fan so I wasn't very surprised. But Brett really liked the lime flavor. He claims it's a manly carmex and I just decided not to even question that statement.

I love the Vanilla Carmex!! It reminds me of junior high when I had flavor lip balm. But unlike the stuff that I used in junior high, the flavor is subtle. Plus the lime and vanilla flavors have SPF 15 in them. This is very important to me since I live in Las Vegas where the burn index is 10 minutes.

Next up is the Moisture Plus Lip Balm, this was the extra goodie! The best way I can describe this stuff is as lip gloss with SPF 15. But unlike most lip glosses, this one is not sticky. It goes on nice alone or over a lip stick to add SPF coverage or a little shine. I decided to strike a model self pose to amuse you with.

See not too much shine! And you can totally tell I don't use Botox. (yet) 

Last but not least is the picnic blanket. Now I'll be honest and tell you that it hasn't made it out of the house yet. Did you read that I live in Las Vegas above. Yeah, this is not the time of year to take picnics. But I can tell you that I love how it folds up! It folds up into a nice little purse size rectangle and then Velcro holds it together. There is even a handle for easy carrying! In about 6 weeks it will be picnic season again and I can't wait to use it!

Isabella would only take the picture if she could pretend to sleep!
