School will officially be back in session for everyone before you know it and aside from all of the standard essentials to get through the school year, it's also just as important to stock up on things that protect you as well. Not only have I been stocking my life supply with hand sanitizer, I've also been making sure all of our bags are loaded up with Carmex lip balms, because there is NOTHING worse than being stuck with chapped lips. 

Although I've had my share of going to school, we all know if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy and if there's one thing that puts a damper on my mood it's dry, chapped lips. Especially during pick-up and drop-off. That's why I like to keep a lip balm in every little essential place, like my car, purse and drawers at home. I have tried the gamut of lip balms out there and I always found myself coming back to Carmex. Unlike other brands I have tried, this actually soothes, smooths and moisturizes without the need to continuously reapply hour after hour. It's the only brand that works for me! While Carmex has several products in their lip balm line, my two personal favorites are the new Comfort Care Colloidal Oatmeal Lip Balm and the Classic Lip Balm Jar

The Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balm is formulated with natural colloidal oatmeal which has been used for centuries to soothe the lips and promote softer, more hydrated skin. My boys are crazy over the Watermelon Blast flavor and I don't mind because the best thing about Carmex is it's Petroleum and Paraben-free. Monkey see, monkey do in our house and they'd never let me get away with doing something without them wanting to do it, too. For kids a little bit older, be sure to include Carmex products on your back-to-school shopping lists!

    I’ve used Carmax for years and love it. It’s the one thing that’s always in my purse! Good luck with back to school. I remember those days and all of the excitement that came with a brand new year. x

    I know that chapped lips are the worst. I definitely could use stuff like this for my daughter to start at school. She could use some good chapstick.

    Ooh I am obsessed with Carmex lip balm in the tin! I think I’ll have to grab the watermelon next time I see it tho! It will be a great way to carry “summer” around in your pocket all winter long!
