The Carmex packaging never appealed to me in the past. I was hesitate to try the product but my life changed after I did. This product is truly one of the best lip moisturizers ever made. The price of this product is dirt cheap and totally worth every penny.

Carmex is a life saver when the cold season hits & your lips start to chap. I've tried a number of products, and nothing does the job quite as well as Carmex. I don't use chapstick unless I need to, since it's better to let your body take care of itself in this case, but when I need it, Carmex is my go-to.

I love this type of Carmex so that I can leave it in my car. Even when it melts in the hot summer, you can still use it without it melting all over your car if you put it some place where it sits evenly with the top up. We have one in each of our vehicles so it is easily accessible at any point.

It's Good , Keeps Your Lips Nice & Warm . Especially In The Winter Season . You Don't Want Your Lips All Chapted And Dry . It Has This Heat To It That Makes Your Lips Kinda Hot & That Is Like The Best Part About It . I Would Really Recommend Others To Use This

It does exactly what I need it to do. It makes my lips smooth, gets rid of any discomfort, leaves a solid barrier around my lips, and it is cheap. I like using a bunch of it before I go to bed. It could smell better, but that is part of it being orignal.

This chapstick is one of the best that I've tried ! In my opinion, chapstick brand does not compare with Carmex . It stays on my lips for a while and moisturizes very well. The price is also very good. 10 out of 10 I would recommend this product to a friend!

As soon as you apply it to your lips, it automatically starts working. You can feel it burning on your lips and that makes me happy!! I bought it at a local drug store. I would tell everyone to use it and I would buy it again of course. I use it all the time

The best part about this product is for how cheap it is! Not only is that the best part but also it works wonders! It does the job and it does amazing. My only issue is that it comes off super quick and doesn't last long but, for the price you can't blame it.

I always keep a pot of carmex in my purse. It’s great for the dry winter months. I also like to use it in the car on my way to work or on my way out. It works really well to moisturize my lips before applying liquid lipsticks. I just wipe it off before I do.

When I use certain lip liners I always get small pimples on my lip line and the best thing to help clear those spots and help heal severely chapped lips. I've used the Original For at least 15 years! It's always been the same great quality for a great price!
