Summer Fun Guide

Summer is my favorite time of year. School is out, the kids are happy and free, and we can go to the beach every day!

Below are some of the products I must have this summer...I hope you enjoy them!

Summer is just around the corner and that means fun in the sun! It’s time to start thinking about spending the day on the beach or lounging by the pool.  While preparing for rest and relaxation in the sunshine, always take care of your skin and lips. Among your summer essentials, don’t forget items to stay cool and hydrated, like an insulated water bottle, a spritzer bottle, a cooling face cloth and your Carmex Moisture Plus® lip balm to moisturize and protect lips from the summer elements.

Carmex Moisture Plus is formulated with the brand’s trusted ultra-hydrating Moisture Plus technology that contains aloe and vitamin E to keep lips hydrated and refreshed in the summer sun.

While catching some rays, revel in your own style by matching your Carmex Moisture Plus® lip balm design to your favorite beach attire. The new, limited edition line of lip balms are available in a variety of fun, fashionable designs to appeal to individuals’ personal style.

In the summer, we go through a TON of Neosporin, and every summer I am so grateful for the Med-To-Go packs. They are so easy to use, and I hang one on my backpack when we go to parks and Disney World. My kids are constantly tripping or getting scratched, so I love that I can just spray some of this on, and keep going with our day. The kids also love that it doesn't sting!

Durable, Non-aerosol Spray Fits Anywhere and Resists Crushing
