  • "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

This always stings my lips when i first use it in the winter. But usually ends up helping. My only problem with it, is that it’s super shiny, no matter how little you put on. It’s very obvious you’re having a cold or dry lips day

So easy to pick up with your finger to place the right amount. Mostly kid-proof so it’s a nice package. I use this every year with how chapped my lips were. I’ve tried it in the tube but i would definitely buy it like this again!

This product is amazing for very chafed lips but works best in the winter time keeps lips protected front the weather from cracking and bleeding love this for the winter time it can be used in the summer preferably as a soy treatment tho.

Carmex works great on blistered and wind burnt lips. It provides immediately relief, but then my lips become dependent on carmex, leaving them more dry than before. But I LOVE it as a rescue lip repair and the smell is so amazing

This is like a ghetto Blistex. It is just as good as Blistex. It was just as effective so it was nice. I am always buying this. It was a good harsh like with Blistex and it's packaging is awesome so I definitely recommend this and I definitely buy this again.

Carmex in a jar is so convenient the large opening let's you get just a small amount on your finger to spread on your lips. The Carmex clears your chapped lips quickly. The only downfall is having to apply it with your finger.

Excellent, deep moisturizing lip balm. You can actually feel the effects of this balm on extra dry lips, so you know it's working. I use this as a daily moisturizing lip balm and also for cold sores. It helps soothe and numb the tingling and itching from cold sores and keeps them from cracking in dry climates.

Carmex is my absolute favorite thing in this world! I adore it so much, I never leave home without it. I have the stick, the tube, and the jar which I alternate between. I bought most of it at Target and CVS and I will definitely be purchasing for the rest of my life

I use this every day. It is so much better than other ointments. The product stays put on my lips but needs to be reapplied often in order to have the lasting effects. I keep it by my bed, in my pores, in my desk drawer and spares in the bathroom. I NEVER want to run out
