~Carmex ~ New Lime Twist and Vanilla Click Sticks: Review & Giveaway!

Congrats to our winner:  HedgeHogi !!

I have been a fan of Carmex products for years so it is a great honor for me to be a part of the Carmex Blog Squad.  The awesome thing is that as a member of this awesome squad I get to test and review new product that Carmex releases and share my findings with you!

Carmex newest fab duo is their Lime Twist and Vanilla click sticks!

Yummo for sure! ;P

These awesome lip treats both not only glide on smooth and sheer with a hint of moist shine, but they also contain sunscreen SPF 15 to protect your lips from the suns harmful rays.  Both have a very mild flavor and scent, not overwhelming or perfumey. These also contain all of the same wonderful moisturizing ingredients that you have come to know and love from the Carmex line, but these two ALSO have 3 additional moisturizers not found in the original line for even more lip loving moisture!

I was very happy with the way these lip balms, from the way they glide on, the scent, the taste, the way may lips looked way moister than before, and with how long the moisture lasted!

Carmex, being the awesome company that they are,  also sent me the coolest picnic blanket! It comes all folded up with a little handle to carry it, and when opened up it is the perfect grass or sand throw blanket! It is soft and cozy fleece on one side and has a moisture resistant backing, so your bum wont get all wet sitting on that lush grass!

The blanket opens to 51″ x  59″! Cute, right? 😀

So, after testing these 2 new Carmex products and being so very pleased with them, I give Lime Twist and Vanilla two thumbs up!  (although I Lime Twist was my fave!)

Now the part you have all been waiting for…..

You already know that Carmex Rocks, and you know that they would love for you to try their awesome products…sooo, thanks to the generosity of Carmex 1 of my readers will also be receiving this same great package! ( both of the lip balms feature PLUS the picnic blanket! WOOT!

Huge Congrats to the winner for the GB: Jeremy (bikeohio)

I am so please to share with you my experience and review of a fantastic Gift Basket Company, GourmetGiftBaskets.com

They have hundreds of baskets to choose from, such as Special Occasion, Holiday, Gourmet Food, Fruits & Healthy baskets, Flowers & Plants, and even Corporate gifts!

Some of their most popular baskets are:

GourmetGiftBaskets.com is a very well known and loved company! They have been featured in such publications as Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Woman’s Day, and The New York Times, just to name a few.

They have also been featured on The Early Show, Fox News, and The Today Show! Very nice!!

Another fantastic fact is that GourmetGiftBaskets.com is a company that gives back, you might be surprised to know that they hold Guinness World Records in Largest cup of Iced Coffee, Largest Cup of Coffee, and Largest Cupcake to help raise money to benefit the Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink For The Cure! (I love companies that give back in awesome ways!!)

I was pretty excited when I found out that I would get to sample and review their Snack Gift Basket – Classic.  As many of you know, I am a total foodie, through and through! I love trying new foodie items and flavors, so this review would literally be an awesome treat!

The basket came very promptly and very nicely packaged! To me this is important when sending or receiving a gift basket. You want it to look nice coming out of the box, for sure!

The basket I receive contained the following:

· Dipping Pretzels by East Shore Specialty Foods – 6 oz..
· Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip by Robert Rothschild Farm – 7.8 oz. Kosher and gluten free.
· Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies by Brent & Sam’s – 7 oz.
· Almond Pecan-dy Crunch by Morley Candy Makers – 9.25 oz.
· Salted Peanuts in Box by Feridie’s – 7 oz. –
· Petite Cheese Biscuits by Salem Baking Co. – 1.5 oz.
· Metropolitan Trail Mix by GourmetGiftBaskets.com – 4 oz
· Buttered Peanut Crunch by Old Dominion Peanut Company – 10 oz.
· Peanut Roll by Dillon Candy Co. – 3 oz. –
· Coconut Bar by Oskri Organics 2.2 0z.
(all of these items came wraped in a very nice, high quality backet that I will use again and again!)

My basket contained all sorts of yummies to try, but I knew before hand what I wanted to try first-Raspberry Honey Mustard pretzel Dip! I am a lover of mixed flavors, and I was at all not disappointed with this dip! All of the items I received were fresh, tasty, and very high quality! The one product I wasn’t sure that I would like, ended up being one of my faves, the Petite Cheese biscuits, I ended up craving them when they were all gone!

I was very happy with everything included in this basket and I’d defiantly be confident in sending any of their products as gifts, knowing that the receiver would be thrilled with not only the appearance and quality of the gift but the fantastic taste as well!
