This was my very first lip balm, when I was little. My family uses the Carmex lip balm jar everyday. I grew up with this lip balm, and it worked well with my dry lips.

This was a huge go to for me when I was a kid it taste good and not only heals and moisturizers but protects as well. Don't need to reapply really at all. Cheap as always and I would definitely recommend it
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I always tell my friends if I don't have my carmex it's going to be a great day. When I put it on I automatically feel like it has already started working.

I have used Carmex since I was six years old and it is fantastic. This is the only product that will work for me since. Due to my sensitive skin some sting but this definitely keeps my lips hydrated.

This is the holy trail of chapsticks. It comes in a pot, so using it can be difficult, but it contains a lot of product and will last. The tingle lets you know it's working!

Its a good chapstick if you dont have long nails, if you have long nails its annoying because it gets stuck in your nails. But i like how much comes in a jar and i love the plumpness it gives my lips

Everyone’s mom or dad had some of this, and I still fall back on it when winter cracks and dries my lips and nose. Carmex isn’t so great of a flavor but it does wonders for lips!

I would highly recommend Carmen. I have been using it for years and don't think I'm giving it up anytime soon. Moisturises lips, keeps them healthy and soft for a low price.

Car max is always a good choice when you’ve got chapped lips, just rub it on your lips for instant relief. I always buy car max because it’s usually the strongest chapstick.
