  • "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

This is the only produc to use for a cold sore, I swear by it, along with the rest of my family. It also heals the worst cracked lips. It has a strong scent, but it is not a bad smell. It even helps with the pain of cracked lips and cold sores. The fact that there is also a stick of it is great too. I would use either jar or stick, they both work the same. This is honestly something everyone should keep in their home.

I like the Carmel lip balm. It is very compact and easy to carry. The taste can catch you off guard if the you accidentally lick your lips while wearing the balm. But the feel of it is refreshing and it isn't to heavy or too expensive. I'm starting to love it a lot more. Get some for yourself !

I've been using Carmex for years now and I mainly use it in winter when my lips get so dry that they crack peel and bleed , it lasts a long time and is a good price for the amount you get

I've used this product for years and even with all the new products out on the market this is still the one I choose when lips/mouth are very cracked or chapped. When I go to the dentist for instance, the corners of my mouth always cracked from stretching my mouth open and this product works perfectly to heal

The smell isn't awesome, but the results can't be denied. When I need fast, medicated treatment for my lips I usually go to my Carmex. It heals cracked, super dry lips so quickly. I always have several of these in drawers, the medicine cabinet, etc. around the house especially for those times.

Who hasn't used carmex? I feel like everyone back in high school used this stuff! Maybe it was because it got pretty cold in the winter.
I still buy it today as a nostalgic item when I see it.
It does work though, don't get me wrong! It is moisturizing and healing, especially with cold chapped lips. I do prefer to get it in stick form now, the balm always got under my fingernails when I tried to get it out of the pot.

Ok so true story.... I was ADDICTED to Carmel for like 10yrs. Seriously addicted! To the point where I would cry if I didn't have it. I remember I walked like 3miles 7months pregnant to get carmex at 2am.... Idk what it is but it's sooo addicting. Nothing has ever relieved my lips or satisfied me as much as Carmex. Thank God I just started to transition out of it. So now I don't NEED it to live. Great product but geez take the drugs out!

I've tried countless lip care brands but this one has been my favorite for years. It's easy to use and apply with one finger. I only wanted it to wear before lipstick but it makes my lips super hydrated so I use it all the time as you can see how scratched up mine is and I will continue buying it! Worth every penny.

This is my all time most favorite chapstick ever!!! I use it morning noon and night. I have jars all over my house. This doesn't seem to dry out my lips more like other chapsticks do. It also gives a great shine like a lip gloss (imo). It's cheap and you can find anywhere. I haven't found anything better.
