  • "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

Love Carmex. Another OG in the chapstick world much like the original chapstick brand. The balm may get a little gross if you don’t have clean hands, if your hands are gross they have a squeeze tube of this as well that works just as good. I really enjoyed this.

This used to be my favorite remedy for chapped lips. It does an amazing job at soothing and repairing. Extremely affordable. The only downfall is you can't use the jar if you have nails because it gets under your nails. I would still buy again and recommend.

It's a great lip balm but the jar is definitely not for someone that has long nails. It gets stuck under you nails and you have to make sure you wash your hands before and after you use it

I would definitely recommend the stick version of this balm over the container. This product is not as hygienic to use on the go because you constantly have to dip your finger in it, which spreads germs. Also, this product does not last long. Would not recommend.

Who doesn't love a good Carmex? I apply this at night after my skincare routine. I love how it moisturizes my lips and keeps them hydrated. I will continue to keep a jar next to my bed!! Never oily an very easy to apply. I recommend it to everyone and even use it on my kids.

Carmex is really helpful when I have chapped lips. It smooths. It makes your lips soft. I use it everyday when I I dont have lipstick on. I use it before I put lipstick so my lips won't get dry and to make them soft before I apply lipstick. I recommend this.

You can't go wrong with the old school Carmex jar! I have always liked this product. I think it works well for really dry lips and cold sores. It gives a nice cold, soothing feeling. You can pick this up at your local drug store, which is really convenient.

Now I use this for when I get fever blisters, but overall this does not work as a daily moisturizer. My lips tend to become chapped after an hour and I don't like that. I bought from walamrt mart, and will keep some on me just in case I get another fever blister
