Of course I keep it simple with the Carmex but it is my fav as I tend to have dry lips no matter how much water I drink. This helps them hydrate and heal right up. Or I just like using it every morning as I get ready to just take my daughter to school.

I've used this all throughout my high school years and it's worked wonders. there's been and still are very few days where my lips are chapped/cracked. most of the time they're so well kept and smooth because of this and my peppermint chapstick.

This is my ultimate cold sore protection. It heals them fast and if I feel them before they show. It keeps them from coming in bad. I have been using this since I was 8. It works as good as the expensive stuff plus it helps with the winter chap.

Carmex is probably my favorite brand of chapstick. It is hydrating, cooling, and doesn’t leave your lips sticky or glossy. I bought mine at the dollar store actually so it’s such a steal! I would definitely recommend this brand of chapstick to others

This one wasn't my favorite I loved the blissex better because the scent on this one didn't fade like the other ones and the scent this one had is sort like Vicks which is gross for your lips lol I haven't used this in years hopefully they changed that

I love Carnex! I've been using it for YEARS. I think I am addicted. I apply it several times a day and if I can't find it, I have to go buy more. I have tubes and jars in my purse, car and many drawers throughout my house. My husband was a Capstick guy and I converted him to Carmex!

Great product, amazing for cold sores and chapped lips. Never fail to make a trip to Walgreens or cvs atleast 3 times a year to fix my needs. It’s easy to apply meets all my expectations and removes cold sores almost the next day. Can’t say I’d never buy again since I buy it all the time!

I have used this for years. I use it every night at bedtime and my lips always feel great when I wake up! I almost can't go to sleep unless I have applied Carmex before laying down. I like the Carmex out of the little jar more than stick form.

I love this lip balm i wear it under or over my lip color. Sometimes, especially in the winter or during colder weather, i wear it alone. Not only does it repair chapped lips this balm is also very soothing and feels amazing on my lips. You can always find this in my makeup or hand bag.
