Carmex isn't one of my favorite lip products to use. This is why: I hate the way it feels on my lips. First the consistency is very thick, so it feels like a double layer of skin being applied. Then it burns the living daylights out of my chapped lips. So eventually I have to wipe it off. However, it does work and it smells nice which are the reasons why I would repurchase.

My mom always carried this in her purse growing up . It works really good for extremely chapped lips or cold sores but I don’t really care for it for everyday use. The smell to me gets kinda obnoxious.

I use Carmex all the time. I love how it makes my lips feeling soft. I usually buy it from CVS. It is my favorite lip balm because it is easy to apply and use. It definitely met my expectations.

This is a very good inexpensive lip healer. It works as well as the Sugar brand. I felt like it last long and you can feel the product working once you put it on. I purchased it at Target. I would recommend everyone to try it

Great lip balm. The smell is a bit medicinal so if that's not your thing, I wouldn't recommend. However, for me, the smell always reminds me of winter because that's when I have to break out the really hydrating lip balms. Thick consistency. The only thing I don't love is the little jar package since dipping your fingers in consistently can spread germs into the product.

Will FOREVER use Carmex. My mother & grandmother turned me onto this product at a young age because where we  lived, we experienced  harsh dry winters. Carmex helps relieve cracked lips as well as prevent them. It doesn't have a  fragrance which is great for men, women, and children. It's fantastic for cold sores too.  Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

I buy these and add them to the Christmas stockings every year.  It's become a tradition.  I love the smell of a fresh jar of Carmex.  However, as I get older and try new products, I find Carmex to be a little too greasy on my lips.  I don't feel like the product sinks into my lips, just sits there greasy until I accidently wipe or drink it away.

My ex boyfriend used this religiously. I would borrow from him when I couldn't find my Chapstick. I just really don't like lip products that come in a pot. You're constantly swirling your dirty fingers on it then putting it on your mouth. That always creeped me out. So the packaging is a mayor fail for me. And I don't think the formula is anything special. It's just meh. I'll stick with my Chapstick.

Out of the brands of lip balm I've tried, it's the only one I consistently go back to. Sometimes I fancy trying something different, but using other balms leave my lips parched and ready to peel. Especially in the height of fall/ winter, this does wonders for locking in moisture. Also serves as a great base under all my lip liners and lipsticks no matter the formula.
