  • "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 809 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

I love every Carman product I use. Ni have very dry skin and its medicated formula works perfect for me. I always have it in my purse and it is available at all stores so I am always able to pick up some. It comes in different containers and sizes at a super low price.

I love this lip balm, I have really dry lips and I find it moisturises them so well and it’s super easy to apply, also for a really good price. It’s also really long lasting, and I would have already repurchased this!:)

I went to school in a cold, snowy, and dry province - and carmex was the most affordable and reliable way to keep my lips from falling off my face. The smell is so calming, and though I'm not a reliable user anymore, I still have a few pots and tubs kicking around my apartment.

I love carmex products but this one is not my type. Box of this chapstick is terrible, you have to stick your finger in it and then use it all over your lips. Sometimes I can`t clean my hands so I can`t use it, cause I don`t want to spread all bacteries from my hands to my mouth.
Consistence is nice, it`s really moisturaize lips but I wouldn`t buy it again.

I find other chapsticks make my lips 'greasy' and it sits uncomfortable. However, the Carmex one is very light on the lips, moisturising and the minty feel and smell is a great plus! It's also a brand you can find easily all across Europe, so I will be purchasing another one when I finish this jar.

Everyone but me seems to love this product. I bought it on a friend's advice, but found it didn't have the desired effect. It often left me with a scummy layer on my lips that was a visible white colour, leaving me embarrassed when I noticed in the mirror. I found the taste hard to take and also hate the burning/tingling sensation.

Sorry Carmex, count me out.

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

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.

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
