Thanks to Carmex for the samples to help this review
Suffering from chapped lips and occasional cold sores, Alfred Woelbing invented Carmex lip balm in Milwaukee in the early 1930s. Formulated with a variety of natural ingredients, the mixture was carefully hand poured into small glass jars, which Alfred would sell to pharmacists from the trunk of his car. In 1937, Alfred founded Carma Labs and Carmex was officially born. Over the last 75 years, people have come to love the lip balm that works like no other. Carma Labs is still owned and operated by the Woelbings - Alfred's grandsons, Eric and Paul.
When I think of Carmex, my mind instantly goes to cold sores, cold weather, and chapped dry lips. I was pleasantly surprised when I was contacted to showcase their limited edition Summer line because the packaging is great, and the benefits are a must as well.
Since I normally use Carmex during the Winter, I was thrilled to learn about another side of this brand. I was sent eight tubes of lip balm and a matching zebra tumbler for this review, and quickly my little girls wanted to take over the box of goodies.
I really like the prints on these balms because they can go with anything. They're not a typical yellow or white like Carmex's other products so it makes it more fun. It's compact like a lip gloss so it fits easily in the pocket, but with the added benefit of sunscreen, aloe, & vitamin E, it's something you'll always want to keep close while out and about this Summer.
Designs are available for a limited time and new limited edition offerings are available every few months. The latest summer designs are inspired by colors, prints and textures from Pantone’s official spring/summer color forecast and the catwalk.
This season’s Girly stick features Pantone’s scuba blue in a carefree and playful gingham pattern. The hue serves as a soft reminder of the tropical ocean that many are dreaming of after a harsh winter! And, the Adventurous stick offers a fresh update to the classic zebra print incorporating another top color from fashion week – strawberry ice. Feminine and a bit daring, this will be one to show off when primping during any outing.
You can purchase the Carmex lip balms at Walmart for a great price of $2.49 each. There's a lot in each one so they'll last a good while, and you'll want to ensure to protect your lips when out and about. We use sunscreen, but I've never thought about SPF for my lips, but from now on I'll be carrying one in my purse and leaving one in our car to make sure it's always available.
