H.U.G.G. Review & Giveaway: Carmex Moisture Plus w/ Tint

It's starting to get cold in NC. I guess some would say finally, I just say whatever. I'm a definite warm weather girl. One thing I hate about the cold is chapped lips! Thank goodness I'm part of the Carmex Blog Squad so I get to share some awesome new skin care products with you that are geared toward protecting your face AND lips this winter. Last month I did a review on the Healing Lotions that I love, love, love. My son has eczema and these work awesome on him. I've also been using tubes of lip balm on both kids for their chapped lips and they love it! So now it's mommy's turn. This month we're talking about the new Carmex Moisture Plus Sheer Pink and Sheer Peach Tint Lip Balms!



Bathe your lips in moisture: With a little help from vitamin E and aloe, Carmex Moisture Plus™ lip balm helps nourish and moisturize lips leaving them so kissably soft they will be hard to resist.

Have fun in the sun:With SPF 15, Carmex Moisture Plus protects your lips from the sun so you can play all day and know you’re covered.

Glam it up: Take it out for a night on the town. A sheer pink, sheer peach or clear satin gloss finish add a hint of shine, while the sleek, slant-tip applicator looks almost as stylish as you.

My Take: I received the two tubes of Carmex Moisture Plus pictured above. It's the Moisture Plus with sheer Pink and sheer Peach tints and I must say I'm in love! Most of the time I hate tinted lip balm. I'm Black and the colors never seem to work for people of color, even when they say sheer. Well, I am happy to say these colors work great! I love the sheer peach. I keep it in my purse (or diaper bag) every time I go out! My other problem with tinted lip balms were that they were sticky or didn't last long at all. Once again this is not the case with the Moisture Plus. It applies easily and is kind of creamy and smooth on your lips. Now as far as lasting long it does last longer than most but I still had to reapply it throughout the day.  Finally, I love the cute silver tube it comes in. It's easy to throw in a small clutch and take it out with you for dinner or a night out with the girls. As a matter of fact check out this tip I just saw on the Carmex website (in case you can't read it- Prevent the dreaded lip color peel. apply Carmex moisture plus lip balm before and after you put on lipstick for luscious lips all day long): 

Buy it: The Carmex Moisture Plus sheer Pink and Sheer Peach lip balms can be purchased at Walgreens stores and online at Walgreens.com only for the price of $2.99 a tube. 

 Win it: Carmex is so generous that they sent me a pre-paid envelope with a tube of the Sheer Peach and Sheer Pink Moisture Plus lip balms to give to one lucky reader. This giveaway will begin on Nov. 30 and Dec. 14. It is open to the US only. The winner will be chosen via random.org and notified by email.

  1. I don't wear lipstick or colored glosses so I would just go with the clear satin gloss.
