No. No. No. This lip balm is not even close to being a lip balm. It does not moisturize my lips at all! I paid around $3.50 for one and honestly that's a little expensive to me for something that does the exact opposite of what it should do.

BY FAR MY FAVORITE. Feels really amazing on the lips and hydrates extremely well. Love using it in my skin care regimen and applying a layer at the beginning of makeup so my lips are really smooth and ready for any lipstick I choose to wear.

I love the formula and the way it makes my lips feel. The only think I didn't like was the packaging and constantly having to swirl my finger in the container to get product. So, next time I buy it, it will be in a different container.

This is my favorite packaging of Carmax to keep on my bathroom counter for when I’m getting ready! For me personally i don’t like to take it on the go because if it’s really hot out it melts easily. Either way this is my favorite lip balm!!

I am very prone to chapped lips. This is the only lip balm that has prevented lips from being chapped. It also works well with my lipstick keeping it moist. Use it also on you finger nails. I promise you it will keep your nails nice and smooth and prevent those pesky hang nails

My favorite, once I’m done with one. I️ go and purchase another one. I️ always buy mine at rite aid or family dollar. They’re so affordable and small to just put it in your purse. Anytime I️ don’t want to wear lipstick, I️ apply this on my lips.

Carmex is my go to for dry, chapped and wind burnt winter lips. Winters in NY can be hard on the lips and Carmax packs the most moisture. My favorite is the version in the tin as it's easy to stay keep in the car and doesn't melt in the sun.

Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar is perfect for winter months. Not super expensive! It always exceeds my expectations. I purchase my Carmex at Target, Wegmans and Dollar Tree. Definitely would buy again, especially with the coming of the winter months and chapped lips.
