hands down my absolute favourite lip balm ever. I borderline have a panic attack when I can't find a jar of it around. I have really dry, sensitive skin that's eczema prone and I sometimes get dry breakout patches around the corners of my mouth and this always always clears it up. I've been using this product for years now and I absolutely love it.

This is such a intensive hydrating lip balm it stings a bit but it is worth it because of the result afterwards I bought Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar from boots. I would really recommend this if you are looking for a small amount of time to make your lips lovely and smooth again

I prefer this rather than Vaseline. I suffer bad from dry/sore lips. Every time I use this it goes straight away I only have to apply the product once and it's gone

I wouldn't say it is moisturising, more of a barrier to prevent any further dryness, but this is a great pick-me-up for my lips during the day. It applies well and I love how it tingles, this plumps the lips and gives them a rosy flush that other tinted balms can't achieve! I keep this at my desk at work as it helps so much during the day and is even better if my lipstick has worn off! Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

Does an ok job at moisturizing your lips but has a funny smell I'm not sure I like. I prefer the stick balms rather than the jar type as they are easier to use. Overall it is an affordable product which works well but I think there are better options.

The best lip chap I have ever used, this will heel your lips the fastest especially when they are cracked or bleeding this is what chap stick you should grab. The packaging is great small and compact. I always repurchase this Chapstick it is a god.

I have been using this wonderful lip care product for years! It soothes my lips and makes them feel super comforted and refreshed. I either use a small lip brush or my finger to apply and then if I'm wearing lipstick I apply the colour over-the-top of the balm. I LOVE this lip balm - it works wonders for me and prevents me from getting chapped lips!

The original Carmex lip balms are always going to be huge favorites of mine! They leave my lips feeling moisturised and help with dry lips almost immediately. The scent is deliciously sweet and you can feel the lip balm working to fix the dry areas of your lips. It is definitely a lip balm that focuses on fixing your lips rather than a colour but I have found that it truly helps make a difference.

This product is my all time favourite to use on my dry lips, it smell a amazing it gives my lips the most amount of moisture they need when they are dry, the packaging is cool it's super affordable and I can take it's with me wherever I go, not only that but I also love the shine it gives to me lips creating the illusion that I'm wearing a lip gloss
