Really great for chapped and dry lips. It Makes my lips so soft and smooth. Really good value for the amount you get. Would recommend to anyone. Great size to be able to fit in your handbag. Really gentle on the lips. Would definitely buy again.

I work in a very cold environment which makes me prone to dry cracked and sore list. The is a staple in my handbag and I use it multiple times a day. It's keeps my lips moist and helps with any dryness that may be caused from the colder weather.

My friends love using this I personally prefer not to, yes it works but and ingredient called pretuleoem jelly(that's also in Vaseline) makes your lips become dependent on the balm so you have to keep applying. I prefer to use lip balms without it

The best lip balm there is, probably because it's medicated. It lasts for a good time, but I have a problem with this packaging because for application you have to use your finger lol but it this bothers you just buy it in another format :)

Love this product! A bit more expensive than your average lip balm product however it does make your lips feel amazing when its on. It can help even the most painful of chapped lips.

My only dislike is the taste and smell can be a bit strong.

When I wasn’t well and my lips were so chapped up I could barely move them this was the thing for me it’s so cute and affordable and the packaging is able to fit in anything it definitely was effective but I wouldn’t use it is I had been somewhere where my fingers were dirty

When applied to dry lips it stings a little , good for its price and it's smells nice , super effective , you can see a huge difference within a week of using it, long lasting and the product is thin and not thick and sticky, would recommend

Carmex has always been my favorite winter lip balm for when my lips are super dry. It smells and tastes really gross but it works which is what matters. I have super dry skin so I really need something strong and this always does the trick.

This was the first chapstick (jar?) I have ever used, and it's one I buy frequently. If your lips are extremely dry and you don't mind the stronger scent it gives off, these are perfect. The formula is a little sticky, but you only need a small amount, so these last you a long time

Fantastico in autunno e inverno quando le labbra sono screpolate e danneggiate. Va benissimo anche per prevenire le pellicine intorno al naso durante i fastidiosi raffreddori di questo periodo. Super consigliato! Perfect in fall and winter!
