  • "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

Carmex works like no other lip balm on the market, and is a total go to for me when I need dry skin to disappear fast!
I love the bright, retro packaging and find it easy and mess free to apply whether it's from the pot (which lasts forever) or from the easy squeezy tube.
Love the unique smell and tingly feeling on the lips which lets you know it's working. It even exfoliates the top layer of dead skin and continues to hydrate throughout the day.
Only downside is that it is one of the oilier balms on the market but a small price to pay for its efficiency and reliability.

This lip balm is travel friendly, perfect as a daily lipbalm for all seasons! It can be used under or over lipstick for a gloss finish that helps to add moisture and relive pain from rough, chapped lips. When first applied it provides the lips with a tingling sensation, almost like minty. I love how this formula includes salicylic acid to aid in mild exfoliation of the lip area. I have sensitive and moderately-highly dry cracked lips, dehydrated also and this provides a long lasting moisture barrier that doesnt cause irritation so thats always a bonus.CARMEX ® LIP BALM JAR

the product is good for dry lips mainly use in the winter it’s also good for itchy spots you have or insect bites, you rub some on them and it decreases the itchiness

My lips get very sore as i bite them because of my generalised anxiety disorder. This is the only product that helps my lips to heal, so its the only brand i use.

Love it! Wouldn't use anything else! The tin last WAYYYYYYY longer than when I use the stick lip balm although those have nice scents to them so can't complain :) (my faves are green tea/lime, the plain no scent carmex & cherry)

Only problem is if you got Ur nails done it'll b hard to get it out without getting it on or under Ur nail but my solution for that is to use the back of Ur nail and then apply to the lips! If not then just get the lipbalm stick as its so much easier tbh but I go through alot of them

MY SAVING GRACE!!
When I was younger I had a terrible habit of making the skin above and below my lips very sore, they would turn red and I would get sores, it was so painful, I went to my doctor and was prescribed creams after creams, I tried high end and drug store lip balms and treatments, but nothing would work. UNTILLLLL.....I found this little beauty, it worked almost over night, you get so much product, I buy a new one every month so it lasts a long time! Honestly swear by this product and would recommend to anyone!! xox

This is a classic, if you love a subtle burning sensation on your lips and get the dryness healed at the same time this is amazing for it. Ive been using this for about 10 years because its jus a must have in any handbag. But warning if your skin and lips specially are sensitive its best to stay away from this and use a classic vaseline does the same job without the burn

This is a great product for dry lips it isn't a sticky formula and I absolutely love it! I bought mine at a local drugstore so it is not very hard to get access of. The packaging was fine just a bit of cardboard and plastic but for the cheap pricing it's worth it and it's not like I would keep the packaging anyway. Great product and I would definitely recommend this!

I use this as my lips are very dry and cracked especially during summer and winter, my lips crack very bad and cut which is painful, I have since started using this and my lips are much softer and do not crack as bad. I have only used this for roughly a month or two and it has helped so much! I highly recommend this product if you suffer from cracked and dry lips.

I love this product so much! I never got the hype about this product and one time I was in primark and saw it was only £2 which was cheaper than in boots so I put it in my basket and purchased it! It has to be one of my best purchases, I use it all the time and it really helps my lips maintain nice and not dry! If you suffer from dry cracking lips then this is for you and I 100% recommend it! If your lips aren't dry, I still recommend it as it is a great lip product and I will continue on using it!
