  • "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

Big fan of this healing lip balm jar. Carmex is such an amazing brand for lip products. You can purchase this balm at Walmart, Heb or Target. I definitely believe it is worth the money. You get what you pay for. This product is perfect to carry in your purse. I find it to be a perfect size. When I am not carrying my purse I place this jar in my pant pocket. This product saves my lips. It is not harsh on my lips. It has no absolute taste or flavor. This product is perfect for all occasions. I wear this before bed. I also wear this prior to using liquid lipsticks. If my lips are chapped I also use this balm. I highly recommend this product. If you do not like to put your fingers in balm I recommend the tube version of this product.

I have nothing to say except carmex is & always will be THE best. You apply it in the morning & it lasts all day, & you can’t get much better than that, especially for the price!

I hated this product!! I was having pretty dry lips last winter so I wanted a more heavy duty lip balm than I currently own. I wanted something affordable and have heard a lot of good things about this brand. Now I normally don't have super dry lips but after a day of using this I started noticing my lips were getting very dry. I didn't think much of it and kept on applying more Carmex. After almost a week of using this my lips were Raw!! Very painful, dry and burning. Right when I stopped using this and switched to something else, my lips cleared right up and were nice and moisturized again. For some reason this product just did not work for me.

I grew up using this. My Dad swears it is the best and exclusively used it and ALWAYS has a jar in his pocket. I hate the smell of it. It does help protect lips during winter weather however there are lip products I like more that have more natural ingredients in them that I like better. Does it work? It does keep lips from cracking in dry weather and helps add moisture. However, it is not my favorite. They used to have a flip up lip balm I really liked. It may be similar to the lip balms they have now, but the original Carmex is just not my jam. Like I said, my Dad ABSOLUTELY EXCLUSIVELY uses this.

A lot of people love it, for me it just burns my lips for some reason. The next day it feels like they're just going to fall off. Better check the ingredients before applying it on

I like the product, just not so much the cold burn thats left on my lips due to the menthol but it does by all means successfully provide me with softer moisturized lips.
