Review and Giveaway - Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm

As one of the newest members of the Carmex Blog Squad, I was pleased to receive two of their newest products Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm SPF 15 Sheer in both Sheer Pink and Sheer Peach to test and also a set to give away to one lucky AB reader!

The marketing copy says:

  • It soothes. It heals. It protects. 
  • The best of both worlds are coming together with real moisture meeting light, sheer color. 
  • Perfect for any occasion and easy to apply - no mirror required. 
  • Formulated with vitamin E, aloe, shea butter and SPF Moisture, a hint of shine and color all in one sleek package 
  • Slant tip 
  • Tested on family members - never on animals 
  • Apply liberally before sun exposure and as needed. 
  • Children under 6 months of age: ask a doctor before use.
The reviewers say:

I shared this product with my daughter, Robyn because she is my go-to expert on moisturizing lip balms. I tend to simply swipe my lips with my usual lipstick and call it done, so her opinion matters to me in finding a good moisturizing lip balm.  She tested it as a stand alone product and I tested it as a moisture boost under said usual lipstick.

I really liked the slant tip and the small diameter of the head of the product.  It mad it easy to apply and very comfortable.
Robyn really liked the taste and tingle of it.
I also like the built in sunscreen and the vitamin E that is part of the formulation.
Robyn liked the pink color (she didn't test the peach -that one is mine)
I didn't mind the peach color on it's own, but since I usually wear lipstick, I found the tint light enough that it didn't alter my lipstick significantly when I put it over top.

Where to buy:
The tinted versions of Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm SPF 15 Sheer are available exclusively at Walgreens and for $2.99 each.
