  • "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

I LOVE this lip balm. In my experience, applying any lip balm during the day just makes my lips worse so what I do is I put some on before going to bed. It stays on all night and the next morning my lips feel so soft. They stay soft throughout the day without having to apply more lip balm. I have extremely dry and chapped lips but since I started using carmex every night before bed my lips are fully healed. This is a trick that works for me so hopefully it could help others too :)

This stuff really works I can tell the difference after just one application. It's think enough to last a couple of hours without being greasy. It also lasts a long time so is really good value for money

Did not lol tho product as much as others. I prefer to feel the lip balm on my lips but with this product I felt that when you put a small amount on it feels like you have put the whole tub on your lips

Keeps my lips smooth and protects them against getting chapped. Would 100% recommend to anyone who has chapped lips. It's so easy to apply and can get it anywhere e.g primark. I always have one near me.

It's so moisturising and I love it for keeping my lips soft. I use it daily in my lip and skincare routine and it is the perfect base for any lip product like lipsticks. Xxx

Because of the weather where I live (Calgary, Alberta) not only does my skin suffer, but my lips do too. I'm known to always carry a lip balm around in my back pocket. That being said; this isn't one of them. The consistency for Carmex is really thick. I feel like it just sits on my lips, and never actually hydrates. The reason why I'm giving it two stars is because I do still own and use it, just not as my primary lip balm. I like to maintain hope, and keep it on my bedside table to remember to apply every night before bed. I have a friend who stands by this product, so maybe it's just me. Her faith has helped me cling to the hope that this might do something for me one of these days!!

Hate the smell and the packaging. I don't recommend this product to my friends. The price is competitive to other lip balms but I would much rather choose a different product.

First off, I have a deficiency  of Vitamin B 12 so I suffer from severely chapped, peeling and often bleeding lips.This is my Holy Grail lip balm, I've only ever found one (Tony Moly in Sephora) that comes close. It is hydrating, softening and all around lovely. I bought it in Boots, it's a bit expensive at around 4 euro but it lasts a very long time and so it's well worth it. I've used Carmex original for about 3 years daily and have never had an issue, but the cherry flavoured version can irritate my lips. I'd advise you to try a patch test before use as some people can find it reacts badly with sensitive skin.
