Keep Your Lips Soft This Winter With Carmex (Giveaway)

Unless you live in South Florida, you probably have been feeling a bit of a chill in the air. One of the first things I notice when those winter temperatures hit is my lips get extremely dry and irritated. Thankfully I have my old standby, Carmex lip balm. Carmex has been a household name brand we have known since my oldest was born, and is trusted by my whole family. It is not unusual to find a tube or jar stashed all over our home and in bags, desks, and cars. My personal favorite is the good old fashioned Original Carmex in the tube. I keep one tube in my makeup case, one in my purse, and one on my kitchen counter. You might say that I have an addiction!

I really love Carmex products because they are very effective and affordable. I wear a layer under my lip color and apply as needed throughout the day. Aside from the traditional jars, tubes and sticks, Carmex has some other items in their product lineup that are worth checking out.

Carmex Comfort Care-  A 100% natural blend of soothing colloidal oatmeal, fruit seed oil and mixed berry flavor that helps restore moisture for smoother, healthier, naturally beautiful lips.

  • Crafted with a soothing blend of colloidal oatmeal and cold-pressed antioxidant-rich fruit seed oil 
  • Helps restore lips’ natural beauty with long-lasting moisture
  • Visibly smoother, healthier looking lips

Carmex Cold Sore Treatment gives immediate cold sore symptom relief you can see and feel
  • Works on contact to relieve cold sore symptoms while the sore heals naturally
  • Relieves pain and itch with benzocaine
  • Minimizes the appearance of a cold sore with TriPLEX™ Formula

Over the years, I have given Carmex products as teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, and coworker gifts. I always suggest Carmex for gift-giving because it is so affordable and practical. It is also very well received. You can find Carmex products in most drug stores, grocery stores, and mass retailers. My local grocery stores almost always have the classic products on sale for just $1! Connect with Carmex on Facebook & Twitter for product updates.

New beauty favorite: Lypsyl Intense Protection Lip Balm

I have a confession: I’m a lip balm addict. I can’t go a day, even hours without it. I carry one in my purse, keep one in my make-up bag at home, have one (or two) stashed in my kitchen junk drawer and few other spots around the house. I have tried various brands over time and have my beloved favorites. I received a sample tube of lip balm that I had never heard of before called, Lypsyl in Original Mint. It’s a Silky Swedish Beeswax lip balm and contains organic shea butter and coconut oil. Just that description alone made me want to try it out for myself.
It has a very unique tube that is shaped differently that the average round barrels of most lip balms. It also has the most adorable yellow honeybee that used as a slider to dispense the lip balm. So cute! But how well does it work? It goes on super smooth with no sticky feeling and leaves your lips feeling completely quenched. I find that even if I eat or drink, the product keeps my lips super soft and moisturized. That’s amazing since I almost always feel the need to apply more after eating. It wears really well under lip color. I think it even extends the wear of my lipstick.
Lypsyl Intense Protection lip balms come in 3 flavors: Original Mint, HoneyBerry, and the Ultra Soothing Chamomile & Honey (ARV $2.99). They can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Duane Reade and ShopRite stores. If you are looking for a very moisturizing, long lasting lip balm, you must give Lypsyl a try! I am so glad I found a new favorite. I will have to stop by my local Wal-Mart or Walgreens to pick up a couple extra for my daughters. Find Lypsyl on the web and on Facebook for product promotions and updates.

Carmex Limited Edition Moisture Plus Collection (Review & Giveaway)

I have a confession. I am addicted to Carmex products. I apply it several times a day and haven't gone a day without it for at least 10 years. I keep them everywhere! I dare not wear my lip color without a couple swipes of Carmex lip balm on as a base. As a Carmex Blog Squad member, I was thrilled to receive the Limited Edition Moisture Plus Collection. I adore the super cute, feminine designs! 
What makes these Moisture Plus sticks even more fun is that they each have their own personality. If you go to, you can take a quiz to find out what stick matches your style. Here is what I got from taking the quiz:

Your Style Is: Chic
You’re a classic, refined beauty with sophisticated taste.

Your personal style is the envy of your friends—you know what you like, and you are rarely swayed in your taste by new fads or trends that come and go. Your closet is filled with black and white wardrobe staples: crisp white shirts, black pencil skirts, and perfectly-tailored sheaths and trousers. Garish colors and loud prints are particularly offensive to you, and you prefer to keep your makeup tasteful and classic: a swath of winged black eyeliner and a classic red lip channel old-Hollywood glamour without being over-the-top. You idolize the sophisticated, classic beauty of style icons like Coco Chanel and Jackie Kennedy.

I really like the smooth application of the stick as well as the soft vanilla flavor. It's truly a girly kind of lip balm. These sticks would make great stocking stuffers, teacher or co-worker gifts as well as a fun "just because" gift. They can be purchased at Walmart, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Family Dollar and Dollar General stores.
