  • "I have been using Carmex for forever. Nothing I've found even comes close to the moisturizing and healing this gives. Recently, I found the original version in tube form (I'm not a fan of the flavored one) and it made my day lol!" in 697 reviews

I get cold sores all winter long, so I use this as a normal chapstick to prevent and shorten the life and severity of my cold sores. I wish someone had told me about this sooner, because it works really well. As long as you don't get a huge glob, it lasts a long time too

I love Carmex it's a great product and does wonders for your lips. The only thing I didn't like about it was it's taste when you lick you lips but other than that it's great. This is the only chapstick brand my mom uses she loves it as do I. I'd recommend this to people.

I use carmax when I have cold sores . I started getting cold sores when I was young , always spreading them because I couldn't figure out how to not touch them lol. At 12 I started used carmax and it has been my
Go-to each time I get a cold sore. It helps stop the cold sore from growing & also helps moisturize my lips !

This is my go-to lip balm. I use it every night when I go to sleep and I use it before I apply my lipstick. The formula is gentle, but strong in that it clears up your lip chaps and dryness quickly. The pricing is perfect. I will always continue to use this product.

My go-to when my lips are dry, cracked, or otherwise in need of serious repair, the texture is, of course, very thick and sticky, but I don't mind that in a medicated lip balm. I also weirdly live the smell, which I find very nostalgic (my mom used this when I was small).

Carmex is one of my favorite brands of lip balms for my very dry, chapped lips. It is absorbed well but still moisturizes for several hours and has a numbing effect on windburned lips. This is a lip balm I always keep in my purse and even use it on my cuticles in a pinch.

I love this product because I have very dry lips that crack and I feel that this helps heal them when they are cracking. I apply throughout the day and I don't feel that I have to apply as much as some other brands that claim to be moisturizing. I also have coldsores sometimes and this helps with the stinging.

This is seriously my go to lip balm and I absolutely love it. It gives your lips a tingling, cooling sensation. It's cheap and affordable. I would definitely purchase again. Comes packaged in a plastic container with a metal lid so it won't melt and leak in your purse.

Good but basic. Can sting if lips are cracked. Classic smell and it healed my drying lips. Can be greasy though so certain lipsticks or lip stains may not adhere well to the lips on top.  Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

Carmex is a good, safe brand. It's nothing revolutionary and it isn't crazy moisturizing, but it does a good job of protecting the lips and locking in the moisture that's already there. The formula is comfortable and doesn't stay sticky once it's melted into the lips.
