Carmax is similar to Vaseline to me. I like them both though. A little bit does a long way to moisturize your lips. The price is good to for the amount of product you get and for how long it last.

When I was little I was obsessed with this. It's cheap. I use to love the smell of it, and it does work better than chapstick for the same price. Downside is there isn't much of a variety like other brands

My most used lip product! I have one in my car, purse, and in my makeup vanity. I use it basically every day and my lips are never chapped or cracked. You can even put it on your heels to help reduce cracking! Highly recommend :)

It's soothing and keeps your lips moisturized for a long time.Its long lasting.I usually apply it under my lip gloss. It's a little harder to apply then the tube Carmax. I recommend this to others.

This use to be one of my favorite chapsticks until I found out it was really drying my lips. I ended up having to apply more often. I would still use it if needed. It’s just not the best brand on the market.

Such a good product! You can use it anytime of year and it will do wonders! You only need a little, and it goes a long way. My jar lasted almost a year, which is so great and saves me the hassle of re purchasing over and over.

It makes my lips peel and I’ve heard people have discovered that Carmex uses an ingredient in the product to make your lips feel dry and apply more. I don’t recommend and it tastes bad too ! Ahah

I don't go anywhere with out it. I always have it in my hand or in my wallet which I carry in my hand and if I happen to lose it I have one waiting for me at home! It feels soft and refreshing.
