I have only used this product once but i will have to say, with the other carmen products which one of my favorite lip products, it is really good and helpful for chapped lips. I would definitely buy it again.

Carmex is a must this winter season. The dryer air has my lips needing extra moisture. Carmex hydrates my lips quickly and lasts longer than other balms out there. I love to give these as stocking stuffers at the holidays. Very affordable and easy to slip into a purse or pocket for on the go use.

Absolutely does the trick and works efficiently. I never have to worry that this product won’t hydrate and exfoliate. Doesn’t last very long and the price is about $6 but I would still recommend it because the little while it does stay on it works really hard at getting those dry lips hydrated.

I have used this product FOREVER. It never fails to make my lips feel more hydrated and less chapped. I know a lot of people don't like the tingling feeling it causes, but I like to feel how it is working. I'm always trying new chapsticks and lip treatments, but I always go back to this one.

I've used this product my whole life and I will forever use it. This is used religiously especially during the winter. I also like using this after I exfoliate my lips. The tingle makes me feel like it's doing something. Easy to apply but TASTES GROSS. Don't get too carried away when applying

Carmex always helps with my chapped lips during the winter. I do hate having to use my finger to apply the balm to my lips, so would probably recommend the liquid ointment for individuals in a hurry and those that don't like a mess! Carmex definitely helps with chapped lips despite the mess!

Carmex is a high school classic lol. But now I use this before I apply my lippies especially if they are matte. Never fails to disappoint, just make sure you remove before using a liner or it won't show up on your lips. Definitely works and it's especially perfect in the dry air winter months
