  • "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

C-L-A-S-S-I-C. If you don't know how to spell Carmex, that's close enough. I actually have never bought one of these, but have found one to mysteriously come into my possession some years ago. I still have it, and it is still the ONLY chapstick that gives a burning, healing sensation when you apply it to chapped lips. 100% recommendation. Not for people who like yummy tasting chapstick.

I always had friends that used Carmex, but I never really bought it on my own until recently when I moved to the east coast. It is a great product that lasts a long time, at an excellent price. I really like the longevity it provides, and I don't have to reapply constantly.

Carmen is a really good product that you can use over and under your lipstick and lip glosses. It keeps your lips hydrated and moisturized if helps to protect your lips from dryness and sun damage that can cause dry lips. Garner also helps with and cracked lips that can be very pain. This is really great product is always a must have product you can take with you in your purse or picket

My next best go to lip balm. Ultra moisturizing. Must be in your makeup bag if it is not already. I wish they would make this same formula with more scent options tho. Another thing, do not leave in the heat because the next time you open it, it might of turned into liquid, and or seeped out of   Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

I'm from the east coast so this old school looking jar reminds me
Of my mom driving us around in the freezing cold winters. She always had this handy for chapped lips. Now that I'm living on the west coast I still reach for this when I'm at my most desperate- I tend to over caffeinate and not drink enough water and this will soothe my angry mouth! I quite like the tingle it gives!

This is a classic product for me... I have been using this since I was a child.. My dad used it and always had it on him and I followed suit. I love how thick it is and it has the classic Carmex scent.. the only thing that I thought was a downfall was the container, if you have nails it can be annoying when it gets stuck under your nail... if you use the top of you nail it's a lot cleaner

Boyyyyy you already know, this is my stuff! Everyday. My lips feelin chapped? Dry? Ugly? Put on some Carmex and instant solution. Carmex has NEVER let me down. Only one dollar at Dollar General, within my budget, and yours too. I recommend this to EVERYBODY, especially those people who need it. Everybody got chapped lips in they life at least once, never again when you using Carmex.

I have used Carmex since I was in middle school! It is the ONLY product that makes my lips soft. When my lips get dry (as they often do), I just put some Carmex on and it goes to work. After a while that entire layer of dead skin peels off, revealing soft and supple lips. I know it sounds gross but it is so satisfying! I love this stuff! It's perfect for those of us with dry skin.

I have chronically chapped lips, regardless of how hydrated I am. This an inexpensive, effective balm. It doesn't smell like fruit or anything, but it works. I find it's best to apply a moderately thick layer of it at night. Recommended! Be sure to remove them from pockets before washing/drying laundry. Even after googling solutions and spot treating, I ruined an entire load (oil spots).

My brother recently had a cyst develop on his lip due to a saliva duct not healing itself properly after he busted his lip. It was removed and he was instructed to use petroleum jelly on it to keep it moist. We found ourselves out and in a pinch without and petroleum jelly and Carmex came to the rescue with this handy lip balm to keep
His lips moisturized and healing appropriately!
