  • "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

This is my absolute go to! If all I could have is Carmex for my lips I'd be perfectly fine. The product isn't costly and can be found at your local drugstore for super cheap. It keeps your lips soft for hours on end! I've put all of my friends on to this product and they all love it!

Best lip treatment ever!! Love that it tingles and I feel like it’s doing something. I seriously notice when I forget to use it every night. I have one in most rooms, plus my car, purse, etc. The tub is so much better than the tube... I have no idea why🤷🏼‍♀️ highly highly recommend!

For some reason I really enjoy the way this smells, but what I love about it is the fact that you can use it in really cold winters and keep your lips from getting damaged by the weather. Heals sores or cuts on your lips within days. A must have for anyone who experiences cold sores.

The best lip product anyone can own. It gives an incredible amount of product for the cheap price. It will definitely last you for months. I keep this handy on my person all winter long. The packaging is a little bulky but the product is so worth it! I will purchase again and again.

My favorite for healing dry cracked lips. Why bother with anything else ?! Gets straight to the point and heals fast...and I can find it everywhere!! I keep carmex in my purse, my car, my bedside table and in my kitchen drawer! I make sure my kids have it in their book bags too!

I used to use this a lot when I was a kid because I thought it was cool. lol I have no idea why! But I think it works his as well as the stick and I love the stick! You can feel it working on chapped lips, if you don't like the tingly sensation then I would not recccomend for you.

This is great for dry, cracked winter lips. It goes on smoothly and stays on. The one thing that I am not a fan of is the fact that you have to use your finger for application. It doesn't seem very sanitary and eliminates the quick and easy application of a traditional chapstick.

Ahhhh....where it all began. I love this product. It works wonders, if you happen to have chapped/chafed lips in the winter. Winters in the Midwest are not kind to your lips, CARMEX works wonders. You can still maintain that kissable soft pout that will keep the boys wanting more!
