Giveaway: Win 2 Carmex Moisture Plus Sheer Tinted Lip Balms- Great Stocking Stuffers- CLOSED

*UPDATED- This giveaway is now closed.

I remember growing up with the Carmex lip balm jars. My friends and I would always keep one in our pockets at school so that we could pull it out whenever we wanted a little shine.  It was a status symbol of sorts. =0)  So, I was excited when Carmex (through the Carmex Blog Squad) gave me the chance to try out the newest member of their family, Carmex Moisture Plus sheer tinted lip balms.

I was sent one of each color of sheer tints, peach and pink, and they couldn't have come at a better time.  My daughter is prone to chapped lips and the other day they were looking pretty shabby.  I let her try out the Carmex Moisture Plus sheer pink tinted lip balm and she loved it.  Her lips felt a lot better after we put it on and by the next day they were looking normal again.

The tints were a little darker than I was expecting but seemed to mellow out to a nice shade.  I rarely wear lipstick for fear of looking like a clown so the Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lip balms are a nice alternative.  I love the fact that they are made with Vitamin E, Aloe, and Shea Butter.......doesn't that sound soothing already. =0)  Plus, they come with SPF 15 (sunscreen).

Thanks to Carmex, I was also given a set of 2 Moisture Plus sheer tinted lip balms to giveaway to 1 lucky Affording Common Cents reader (these would make a great stocking stuffer).

How to Enter This Giveaway:

You can have up to 3 entries (per household) for this giveaway. Please make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry.

Entry #1) Visit Carmex and tell me what Carmex product you would like to find in your stocking this Christmas.

Entry #2) Become a follower of this blog (Google Friend Connect) publicly or if you already are a follower that works too. Leave a comment letting me know that you are.

Entry #3) Like Carmex on Facebook and tell them that Affording Common Cents sent you (remember to come back here and leave a comment telling us that you did it).  =0)

Please make sure that you also leave your email address with your comment so that I may contact you if you the winner (the only reason I would use your email address for). I would suggest typing it up like this- affordingcommoncents (at) gmail (dot) com so that you don't get hit with spammers.

Open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at 11:59 pm (PST) on 05 December 2010. One winner will be chosen at random from all the comments. I will email the winner and they have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be drawn. 

*Thank you to Carmex for giving me and one of my readers 2 Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lip balms each! They sponsored this giveaway but the opinions are mine alone and always will be. =0)

**The Carmex Moisture Plus sheer tinted lip balms can be only found at Walgreens and online at Walgreens.com.
