Carmex Moisture Plus Sheer Pink and Peach Tint Review and Giveaway

Featured Sponsor



a little about Carmex.

Carmex® lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars

Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.

Since I am apart of the Carmex blog squad, I was sent two new products to review. I received Carmex Moisture Plus sheer pink tint and Moisture Plus sheer peach tint. These colors worked great for me because they were VERY natural and moisturizing.

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 or sheer peach finish add a hint of shine, while the sleek, slant-tip applicator looks almost as stylish as you. 

ace and friends thoughts:
While I liked both colors, I would have to say that I REALLY liked the pink just a wee-bit more! Although the pink appears to be somewhat dark when you remove the cap, you will learn quickly that when applied, the color is very subtle! It not only provides the appropriate amount of color that I love, it also gives the type of shine I like on my lips too! During the winter season, I still love to have good lip protection and with Carmex's Moisture Plus Lip Balm I get that added SPF too. hurray. Carmex's Moisture Plus Lip Balm goes on smoothly and it has a thinner consistency versus some others that I have tried. I have to say I like that so much more!

The peach tint was lighter and much more natural. I will certainly get good use out of both colors, although I know the pink will be used more often and go much faster.

The Carmex's Moisture Plus Lip Balm lasted about 2-3 hours until reapplication was necessary. There is also a satin-gloss available for those who  prefer the shine, but not the color.
