Of course, as soon as the Carmex sticks hit the table, the grabbing started. Hands were reaching out for their favorite flavor of Carmex and I had to intervene to stop World War 3 from starting in my dining room. First I laid claim to my two favorites (the brand new pomegranate and vanilla) and then I did let some of the older children each choose a Carmex.
We'd never tried the Cherry, Strawberry or Pomegranate before, so they were entirely new to us. I decided I really like the Cherry Carmex, as much as the Vanilla and Pomegranate. I still have some issues with the consistency of the Lime Twist; it just gets too soft in 105 degree weather. Of course, every Carmex tube does say to protect it from sunlight and extreme heat.
Each of the Carmex Click Sticks has an SPF 15 sunscreen to protect our lips from sun damage, wonderful moisturizing oils, and an 80 minute water resistance. And no matter which flavor you choose, you'll still get the Carmex tingle. It is so convenient to just unlid the Carmex and smooth it on, without having to dip my finger into the jar. I don't mind using the jars at home, but I definitely prefer a stick for carrying in my purse.
We used the beach bag to go to the pool last night, and it's very well-made. The fabric helps contain wetness and dries quickly once you empty it. It has an attached zip pouch for safely holding your snack bar money or your car keys. The rope handles are sturdy and cute, and its bright yellow striped design is fun. My husband and my tote-loving teen daughter were both admiring it, so I had to remind them it was a family swim bag.
