Hands down the best lip balm I’ve ever used. I have so many of these as I get through them so much! I use these all day, every day! I always put a layer on before bed to give my lips a nourished feel. They smell amazing and they last for such a long time. Not too heavy and not too light or greasy! My absolute holy grail.

Carmex is my holy grail!! I used to see so many people talking about how good it is but I thought nothing of it until I decided to go and buy one for myself. I love the way it leaves my lips. They’re left so soft and it has a nice tingling sensation when applied. I had to buy my younger brother one because he kept using mine because he also loves it. This is a great product to keep with you at all times. Ive got one on my chest drawer and another in my work bag. Another thing I love about this is that it lasts so long. I use it every day but it literally lasts me ages and it’s soo cheap Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

Love the feeling on my lips when I put it on after exfoliating them, also made my boyfriend try it 😂 i always use it as my routine and then put on my lip liner and liquid lip. Honestly works wonders for me because my lips don’t end up being super cracked compared to when I don’t exfoliate or moisturise.

First off, I have a deficiency  of Vitamin B 12 so I suffer from severely chapped, peeling and often bleeding lips.This is my Holy Grail lip balm, I've only ever found one (Tony Moly in Sephora) that comes close. It is hydrating, softening and all around lovely. I bought it in Boots, it's a bit expensive at around 4 euro but it lasts a very long time and so it's well worth it. I've used Carmex original for about 3 years daily and have never had an issue, but the cherry flavoured version can irritate my lips. I'd advise you to try a patch test before use as some people can find it reacts badly with sensitive skin.

I received this in a beauty subscription box and was happy to try it as I suffer from dry lips.
The packaging is nice and colourful and there are a range of options to chose from.
The first thing I noticed was the smell and it took me a while to get used to and at first put me off using it.
Once used to the smell I found the product was ok. It was a bit thicker than I usually like and I could really feel it on my lips, it also broke down the lipstick underneath so I swapped to using it only as a nighttime lip balm.
Once I’d swapped I had no further problems and found it kept my lips moisturised ok.

Literally a blessing!! THE BEST LIP BALM OUT THERE!!!
This product is better than expected and works perfectly. I've been using Carmex for about 3 years now and its the best value for money and very affordable. Keeps chapped lips smooth and healed. Leave it on all night and works a treat!

I love the smell of this lip balm, and the price is great, but I've found that after using it for a little while, the dryness of my lips in-between applications got much worse. After stopping using this and changing lip balm, I have found that the quality of my lips is much better.

The Carmex lip balm jar is best known as a daily lip balm suitable for all seasons. Packaged in a handy pot, it can be used under or over lipstick for a gloss finish that helps to add moisture and relive pain from rough, chapped lips. Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

Carmex classic Lip Balm is fantastic, my lips get so dry in the wintertime and this brings them right back to the soft healthy lips. the price is amazing and well worth it. I definitely recommend to anyone who suffers from cracked and dry/chapped lips in the cold weather.
