  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 809 reviews
  • "I have been using Carmex for forever. Nothing I've found even comes close to the moisturizing and healing this gives. Recently, I found the original version in tube form (I'm not a fan of the flavored one) and it made my day lol!" in 697 reviews

I hate this product I’ve used it a few times and it literally burns the hell out of my lips I’ve tried using it when my lips aren’t sore and it burns then too so definitely the formula not for me I’m afraid

This is my everyday go to lip balm. It is inexpensive and works well to cure my dry lips! My lips instantly feel better after using this product. I will definitely repurchase this time and time again.

I love this product so much. I was on the strongest acne medication accutane and it makes everywhere so dry - especially your lips. So this was my #1 product to use throughout that rough year. My boyfriend and my friend also used this through accutane and it’s the only thing that works!

It is my all time favorite. Since I tried this lip balm I never used another lip balm. It smells ok but after I applied it on my lips, my lips stayed soft the whole day. The consitent is also really smooth.

I like this product and like the tin but of the 3 types of packaging they have available this is the least hygienic. Great product though and available at all drugs stores and is always very reasonably priced.

I love this product as it made my lips luscious and soft. Very secure packaging . It was quite harsh on the lip even though it did a great job. I bought it from Superdrug. I would recommend this to others.

I love these. Slightly tingly and fresh feeling, not sticky or smeary and absorbs well. Really good value as each pot lasts for ages. I recommend caramex to everyone. Much prefer these to the gloopy tubes.

Leaves your lips feeling very smooth. Used this product to prevent my lips from chapping in the cold weather of this season as I’d be prone to this problem and it worked perfectly. Item had to be reapplied many times but I didn’t mind this.

Absolutely my fave, most reliable lip balm. Keeps my lips nice and soft and hydrated for hours and I use it a lot! They last quite well too. They come in some really nice flavours and I think they are definitely the best lip balm out there.
