BFF Open House Link Party #29 and Carmex Healing Lotion Giveaway

Happy Friday (if work is over for Thursday, it’s Friday!) all. Speaking of work, it kinda ate my lunch and a couple of dinners this week so this is one of those weeks where “Blog Feature Friday” isn’t featuring a blog.

With next week being Thanksgiving and next Friday being shopapalooza-kick it into high gear for Christmas-Tryptophan recovery day, I’ll skip it and have a new BFF to introduce to you on December 2.

But I do have a treat for you this week! I’m a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and they sent me a wonderful box of goodies to try:
Carmex Healing Lotion
If you’re unfamilliar with Carmex, they've been around since 1937 are are still family owned and operated. They’re most well known for healing lip balms but they also have a new line of healing lotions.

Between the weather getting colder ( which means the heat’s on which can be very drying), all the hand washing I do (contrary to popular belief, I don’t just lick the chocolate off my hands!) from playing with paints, inks, glues etc. and from working with paper which can also be very drying, my hands and skin are always dry. I have tried a BUNCH of different lotions so I was really excited when they started this line.
Carmex Healing Cream
The Healing Lotion is great for everyday use and absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling. I hate feeling covered in something. Basting is for turkeys, not people. The Healing Cream is more intense ( still not greasy) for tougher areas that tend to need a little more help. The Healing Lotion lasted through hand washing for me so I didn't have to re-apply.

The nice folks at Carmex are offering one of you the chance to get the same cute gift box they sent me, so I decided I’d combine that with this week’s party! 

To be eligible, all you need to do is:
  • Be or become a follower of The Answer Is Chocolate or
  • Link up something at this week’s party
You just need to make sure and leave a comment for each thing you do.

Now, what have you been up to this week? Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? I’m seeing such cute Christmas ideas I know I won’t be able to make everything I’d like to! OK Party On!

Products were provided to me to review but all opinions expressed are my own.
