  • "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

The Carmel lip balm is one of my favorites when my lips are chapped. The product is easy to use and moisturizing. I buy the product at any local grocery store or drug store. The value and price are reasonable. I would buy this product and recommend everyone try it out.

As someone who combats cold sores fairly frequently, I have always used Carmex. My family has used it for as long as I remember. I enjoy that it's in a dip jar instead of a tube. I also like the texture to really coat the sore.

Hydrates my lips the best.  Love the container.  I keep one in my car and bedroom.  I love the cool, almost tingly feeling it creates.  Easy to apply, although can be messy if the container overheats.

This product is great. I bought one at CVS in the past and I repurchased it a few times after. It lasts pretty long. I love the soothing and healing effect it gives and the minty feeling is nice. I would recommend it to anyone.

It’s great for the purpose it’s used for. However, it’s a thick petroleum jelly so it comes off on anything you touch your lips to and leaves you with a thick, sticky, vaseline feel. It has a strong menthol smell to it as well.

I love to use this lip balm every night when I go to sleep or after I exfoliate my lips. This product hydrates and moisturize my lips throughout the night. I love to get the original Carmex in the jar, it last a very long time.

This product made my lips peel significantly, I still decided to give my lips time to adjust but over a 2 week time period it didn't help my lips. Doesn't really have a long lasting effect, I would not recommend this product ..

Carmex is my go to lip balm for the cold months ahead. It works wonders and I have sworn by it for years. Carmex is a staple in my home and you will not catch me without it i my handbag. I think it is the best stuff out there.

Works great!! I like using this one because I feel like it actually helps restore my lips. It has this nice cooling sensation that makes my lips feel so much better after all the chapping. P.s it has a large amount of product.
