C is for Carmex, Chuvaness and Contests

CVS, more popularly known as Chuvaness, had this contest on her blog where all you had to do was send out a tweet inviting the twitterverse tweeps to follow her. She was giving away 15 boxes of Carmex Lip Balms!

I sent out a tweet, as I always do with any of her twitter-based contests (the ones that brought her to relevance, kekeke) but didn't win.

It turns out that since I was "protecting my tweets", if you weren't following me on Twitter, you wouldn't see my mentions (@), RTs and Replies. So much for trying to keep my thoughts and retorts private. It is the same with the Cebu Pacific Hong Kong trivia contest. I couldn't win, because my tweets didn't stand a chance (it couldn't be read at all by 5J peeps!). Sayang.

So since I didn't win any of Chuvaness' Carmex swag, I did the next best thing. I went out and got my own Carmex loot!

I love, love, LOVE Carmex. A has really, really dry lips and this is the only lip balm that works for her. I love the icy feeling after each application. And the smell/ taste is just so addicting.

My little boy loves this too. He's sick this week (over-worked?) and I use this on him because it makes him forget about his stuffy nose and cold sores. I call it "icing his booboo", and he likes it.

Carmex is available at PCX stores, First Aid, Robinsons Department Stores, Landmark Department Stores (got mine from Landmark, Trinoma), Felcris in Davao, Suesh in Greenhills, Boracay Budget Mart and Red Dot in Laoag (of course I got all this from Chuvaness! This blog has all the info you need on what's hip and hot in Manila).

Use Carmex everyday and kiss dry lips away!

  1. Now I like to try Carmex too!
    I've been a loyal Burt's Bees lip shimmer & Blistex Lip Blam user for the longest time and both are very good to my lips too :)

  2. I use Carmex too, kayekaye. My favorite is the cherry. Now i know what to bring for you next time i come home. :)

  3. I love Burt's Bees as well, but Carmex is delightfully affordable. Hehe.

    Boobear! I didn't know you blogged! Blog more! I miss you!
