I have only tried this product once. It felt so good and smooth on my lips. It's not greasy or to oily. It helped my dried and cracked lips. I would recommend this product to everyone in my inner circle. I would buy again and again. I love the way it feels

This is my holy grail lip product and the only one besides a lip scrub that I use on a daily basis. I keep a jar of this on my night stand and many tubes in my purse, desk, jackets, etc. I use this at night and wake up with plump, moisturized lips! There is a tingling sensation from the menthol, but I actually enjoy it.

Carmex is another go to product my family has used when it comes to keeping the lips moist and for fighting cold sores. In the winter, Carmex is always in my purse and I pack it in my kids bookbag and make sure my husband also has some for his lips. My husband is a carpenter and most of his work is done outside as he builds hospitals. He knows to keep that Carmex on those lips if he wants kisses.

Carmex is and has always been my go-to for dry-feeling or chapped lips. Being kind of lip product obsessed, I always try new products, cheap and expensive that claim to make lips smooth and flake free.  No matter how much money I spend looking for the biggest and best in lip products, I always find myself going back to my Carmex. The multi packs are wonderful and you just can't beat the price

I have been an on again off again Carmex user for most of my life and really liked the product up until a couple years ago when I found something that worked better for me. For me carmex seemwdbto make my lips more chapped and kept having to put more on . I don't really like the smell either and the packageing is a little boring but I like how you keep it original because always easy to spot.

I remember buying Carmex years ago and it was a decent product. It really did help with cold sores. I didn't really like sticking my hands into the balm and I remember switching to the applicator tubes. I would purchase this product again if I could ever find it. I don't see it often in displays.

This lip jar balm was SOOOOOO good. It was very moisturizing and did the job. However it did not have the best scent or taste and the jar is not very sanitary because I have to use my not always clean hands whenever my lips are chapped. So I do love the product despite the cons, but next time I will just purchase a Carmex product that does not require me to touch the product with my fingers.

This is my go to lip balm whenever my lips have any issue. At first it stings, especially if you have a cut of any kind, but after a while it settles to a slight tingly sensational. My only complaint will be after a while it starts to slide around a little bit and starts to build up into chunks. But aside from that it does help with dryness and pretty close to any lip issues you maybe have.

I always had friends that used Carmex, but I never really bought it on my own until recently when I moved to the east coast. It is a great product that lasts a long time, at an excellent price. I really like the longevity it provides, and I don't have to reapply constantly.
