Carmex is a very long lasting and moisturizing product for your lips. It leaves a slight pleasant cooling sensation on your lips. There's an abundant drugstores that carry carmex. I always find myself reaching back for this to prep my lips with an intense matte lip look

This fits the bill when my lips are in bad shape or if I am spending a lot of time outdoors in harsh or dry weather. I like the feel of the formula and even though the medicinal smell is strong it makes me feel it is working extra to save my chapped lips.

This is the only produc to use for a cold sore, I swear by it, along with the rest of my family. It also heals the worst cracked lips. It has a strong scent, but it is not a bad smell. It even helps with the pain of cracked lips and cold sores. The fact that there is also a stick of it is great too. I would use either jar or stick, they both work the same. This is honestly something everyone should keep in their home.

I like the Carmel lip balm. It is very compact and easy to carry. The taste can catch you off guard if the you accidentally lick your lips while wearing the balm. But the feel of it is refreshing and it isn't to heavy or too expensive. I'm starting to love it a lot more. Get some for yourself !

The best lip products for dry, chapped, peeling lips or even cold sores. This is the best product I've used to help heal and moisturize my lips. It's super easy to apply and long lasting. It makes your lips instantly feel better with a cold tingling feeling. One application will help your lips with moisture loss, peeling, and chapping. I highly recommend for anyone who suffers from lip issues including cold sores.

At no point CarMax is disappointed me because it's just really good luck I hope it made like like for those have really dry lips and cracks in it you may feel a little bit of a burn sensation I'm not going to be funny but it works like after like a few days my lips felt so like softer than they were like a couple of days ago because they were so dry but putting the Carmax on my lips help them so it works very well

Who hasn't used carmex? I feel like everyone back in high school used this stuff! Maybe it was because it got pretty cold in the winter.
I still buy it today as a nostalgic item when I see it.
It does work though, don't get me wrong! It is moisturizing and healing, especially with cold chapped lips. I do prefer to get it in stick form now, the balm always got under my fingernails when I tried to get it out of the pot.

I've used this product for years and even with all the new products out on the market this is still the one I choose when lips/mouth are very cracked or chapped. When I go to the dentist for instance, the corners of my mouth always cracked from stretching my mouth open and this product works perfectly to heal
