If you're anything like me, you've tried dozens of lip balms!! Carmex is by far my favorite lip balm of them all. It doesn't have a "pretty" scent, and it doesn't have the "pretty" packaging, but it is extremely effective. It brings my dry lips back to life!!

I literally will not leave the house without my carmax. I absolutely love this product because it keeps my lips moisturized all day long. It makes my lips shine, making me look like i have lip gloss on. Another major plus for is that it has really cute packaging. It's kind of vintage. Also, the product isn't super thick and clumpy like other lip balms as well.

CARMAXXXXXXXX!!!!!! it’s a complete classic lipbam.The best lipbam to have during the winter when dry lips is the norm.I was on team carmax in the beginning, but once I got that cold sore on the side of my lips, I needed a  remedy as soon as possible, and carmax was the product that saved the day. Now that I use it on a daily I no longer get cold sore I LOVE IT!!!!!

This stuff is great! I must say, it has a very strong smell that I find quite unpleasant, put I find it worth it because of how well the product works. However, because of the smell, I only use it when my lips are really, really bad. Aside from the smell, this stuff is the most powerful lip balm I've ever used! As long as the smell doesn't bother you, you'll probably like it!

Now who doesn't love the original Carmel. I've used this since I was young. I buy it at my local stores. It always meets my expectations. It helps with my dry an chapped lips. I use it year round. I literally have this stuff saved in my stuff. Love it. It's recommended.

I wont lie it works for sure but i dont like putting my finger in it, I dont like the consistency it leaves on my finger or my lips actually. I have used the stick version to avoid the finger mess but i dont like the residue feeling i get from it. My mom swears by it so thats the only reason i tried it and every christmas i buy some and sneak it in her stocking.

I love carmex.

We've all had those days where it's snowing, below 20degrees and your lips are burning! Or those mornings when you wake up and yawn and then feel that ever so undelightful split as you reach for your chapstick on the nightstand. Well this chapstick is the life saver for all these horrible situations. It's a great reliable product that WORKS and it doesn't cost a lot.

Classic Carmex! This stuff has been around since I was a kid and I used to really love it when I had super chapped lips. Now, I am a bit adverse to the scent and flavor for some reason. I will still occasionally use it when my winter lips are really getting me down.

I love carmax, it helps keep your lips super soft, smooth, and healthy. Of your lips are chapped, use carmax and your lips will instantly feel a hundred times better, and the moisturusing healing power will heal your chapped lips quicker than any other brand. Love it
