Carmex in Tangy Orange-Flavor?
Carmex original lip balm (in the little pot) is my chosen potion for healing chapped lips and cold sores. It works great, but the flavor leaves a little to be desired (although, it does tend to keep the kiddos from licking the stuff off). And cherry or vanilla...why do all lip balms come in cherry or vanilla?
Can you tell I'm not crazy about cherry or vanilla? I've never even tried Carmex's cherry, because the thought of sickly sweet cherry lip balm makes me cringe.
But orange-flavor, in a clear lip balm...that intrigued me. So when Carmex put out a call asking bloggers to try out their Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm in Orange, I had to try it out.
I like it. It has a little bit of sweetness to it (not at all sickly sweet) and a little bit of tang. It doesn't totally cover up the mediciny (is that a word) taste, but the orange mingles with it, making it less noticeable, and more pleasant (no more ick faces from the kiddos). It won't leave your lips feeling sticky. You might lick them a couple of times, but the flavor seems to fade after a few minutes, so you won't lick it all off.
And it'll leave your lips feeling smooth and moist, just like good ole Carmex. I hope they go forward with this and we see Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm in Orange on our local store shelves soon.
What do you think about flavored lip balms? Does orange-flavor sound like a treat?
Disclosure: I received this lip balm free from Carmex to try it out and give my thoughts on it. I was not obligated to post anything about it...just thought it might interest y'all.
