  • "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 823 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

It's a meh product. It tastes very good but it isn't very long lasting. I don't like the fact that it is in a jar, it isn't very practical to be honest. I don't think that it's worth it because it is just ok. There are better lip balms out there. So I won't repurchase it

I suffer from really chapped lips, especially in the winter and this is the only lip balm that works to keep my lips from cracking. I actually like the smell of it, and it keeps my lips really soft. I keep one in the car, my bag and at work so i've always got one at hand.

The original balm that really works. I find the Carmex balm to be much more effective than most petroleum based balms. It feels like it is actually working and soothes and mends my dry lips. I prefer the squeezy tube as it is easier to apply. Does what it says on the tin!

Carmex has a very strong menthol smell to it, which I personally love, but I could see that some people would find it too potent. It has a very moisturising formula and goes on the lips clear so can be worn on it's own. Would recommend putting a large amount on overnight.

Honestly this is the best lip balm. If you have dry and chapped lips, Carmex is the answer. It's not the most appealing smell, but if you're just putting it on before bed, it works wonders overnight! if you like a nice smelling lip balm, go for the  ! Works just the same.

A great product that does exactly what it says on the tin. Very reliable. Standard packaging small enough to travel with. A strong taste for the original one but they do have different flavours which I am yet to try! Available at your local drugstore and very affordable would buy again.

Love this lip balm! It's quite a thick consistency but once applied it stays on for a very long time, and leaves your lips feeling soft and non dry, rather than a short term fix for dry lips I feel this really fixes the problem long term, I would defiantly recommend!

I prefer this version to the squeeze tube version, that version is too sticky for me (personally) it's 1 of 2 lip balms but that I only really  I like that keeps my lips moisturised, look nice and isn't sticky! The taste isn't great but you get used to it and it works!
