  • "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

Great old school product! Very good for dry skin on the lips and the sensation of the coolness in your lips is very comfortable, and definitely wearable! Very easy to keep in your bag and lasts a long time as a little bit does go a long way! Would definitely recommend

This product helps heal cold sores faster than on their own. It definitely helps to speed up the process and met my expectations. I bought mine at Walmart. It has nice simple packaging and I would buy it again to help with future cold sores. I would also recommend it

Carmex  is always brilliant… It's incredibly moisturising, healing for sore lips, very affordable, it lasts well, it smells good, and it definitely makes a difference to the health of my lips. I've been buying carmex  for years, and I will definitely continue to do so!

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 love this product. The original Carmex scent smells delicious. This product has quite a lot of good reviews and it lived up to my expectations. It is also affordable and you can find it in your local drug store. I would definitely reccomend this as a day to day user.

I’ve used most of the Carmel lip care products and swear by the tube of lip balm especially in the winter when my lips get dry and chapped.

However I find the pot contains a much thicker substance and doesn’t seem to have the same instant improvements as the tube. Overall I wouldn’t recommend buying the pot, I’d most definitely but the tube every time ! It even looks better.

This item comes with me everywhere I go no exaggeration. This is the only chap stick that doesn't make my lips feel even worse.  I just come out with super soft lips, the texture is so smooth. I would 100% recommend to anyone that suffers dry lips like myself!
