I got cold sores and chapped lips a lot so this was something that I completely recommend you because every time that I put it on my lips it had that minty breath for a minute but then it's soothing to my skin of my my lips feel fresh after a while having really bad chapped list this is something that my friends recommended to me and I can assure you that now that I've used it I use it everyday and I haven't had a single problem with chapped lips sense

Carmex is a great chapstick! I still have yet to find one that really has a crazy impact on my dry lips, but carmex does the job for a little while! I love how glossy it feels on my lips and I find myself applying it every 5 minutes because of how smooth it is on my lips. I also find the scent to be very relaxing, but that's just me! 😇

I love this product because when I have chapped lips , this product helps it go away . But the only thing that I hate about this product is that while you have it on , it burns so much . But eventually the burning goes away and. Your lips become numb . I would recommend you buy this if you have chapped lips . It definitely works !

I like Carmen but the smell is what turned me against it. The tingly feeling when applying is nice but that smell on my lips is reminiscent of vix vapor rip for me. When the product so close to my nose it just was overwhelming. Also, it seems to cake on my lips and become sticky after wearing for a few hours. Sometimes my lips will have a white line wheel the Carmen has somehow caked up.

The original Carmex is a classic go to for cold sores or lip problems. Although it does have a very strong smell, it works great to heal up cold sores or to keep them moisturizers at least. It is very greasy to apply so I use a q-tip to apply it, versus my finger. Also, that way it keeps the container clean from being "infected".

I bought this product because it was very popular amongst my friends. I found that it didn’t meet my expectations because I don’t like the feeling of Vaseline on my lips, it left me with a heavy greasy feeling. I also found the jar inconvenient for applying a chapstick to your lips using your fingers which may or may not be clean

For me personally I am not a fan of them. I've used them in the past and they just dont work for me, but they might work for you. The price is super reasonable and you can find them almost any where at your local drugstore or gorcery store.

Carmel is probably the lip product I use the most. It's very moisturizing and nourishing on the lips. I apply it every night before bedtime and when I wake up my lips are super soft. I have s little pot in my purse, bedside drawer, bathroom and kitchen. It's a winner for me

It smells bad but besides that it is pretty good. It works well but leaves a weird feeling on your lips. It makes sure your lips aren't chapped or cracking so yea I would recommend it to people and it's small and easy to carry around.
