  • "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

Good product. Works really well. Very very cheap. I am a repeat user and have used it multiple times. Easy to apply just glides on. Stings lips a little bit. Bought mine at Walmart. Packaging is nice, easy to open. I would buy again. Overall really good product

I suffer from coldsores and acne around my mouth and this product seemed to increase my symptoms. I'm not sure if it clogs my pores or why it does so but no other lip brand has caused my mouth to flare up like this. Would not recommend if your prone to coldsores.

The original, the first, the best!  This stuff is awesome - and not just for cold sores or whatever.  It lasts forever, keeps lips moist in winter and summer, and has a fresh feel and smell.  I've used this for years - and I always come back.

I have such mixed feelings about this. Sometimes it stings my lips SO BADLY, but they feel totally moisturized... but then sometimes they would peel the next day. It's something I'll use if I'm desperate and have on hand, but not something I would purchase again.

I absolutely love the original Carmex! It's so soothing and I love the tingling feeling of it. It is such a great value as well that I can buy this 6 pack and keep one everywhere! Everyone should try this if they are looking for a long lasting product that works!

Carmex answers all of my lip corner issues!!! Sometimes the corners of lips are dry and cracky, but Carmel does it for me. It doesn't rub off easy and it last a long time. I purchase this at WalMart of course. I'm out now, so I guess I'll head over to WalMart!!!

I love Carmex. I have been using this product for years, I am a repeat user. It is so inexpensive and can be found at any convenient store. Last time I bought it at Walgreens. It does come in nice and simple packaging and use it all the time. I recommend to others.

Love Carmex. Another OG in the chapstick world much like the original chapstick brand. The balm may get a little gross if you don’t have clean hands, if your hands are gross they have a squeeze tube of this as well that works just as good. I really enjoyed this.
