  • "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

When I was younger, I had terrible acne. The medication that I began taking horribly dried out my skin, resulting in dry patches that would itch like crazy! Applying this on my lips intensely hydrated them. I also applied this on the sry spots on my arms as well! This is my favorite lip moisturizer, but fair warning!!!! If your lips are super dry it might tingle a bit!!!

Not a fan of Carmex I will use it if I have no other choice but not my go too! My lips always feel worse after using it! It can be bought just about anywhere but I wouldn’t recommend wasting money.

I use his for lip balm but I don’t really like the taste of it. The reason I use it is because I frequently get cold sores and this works so well for them. I like it better than the pricey cold sore medicine. I use this whenever I feel one coming and it goes away. And of course its waaaaaay cheaper than medicine.

When the weather changes and my lips get really chapped I'll use this. It soothes and moisturizes my lips to make them feel a lot better. I always have at least one of these lying around the house and I like the packaging because when it gets hot it doesn't ooze out the tube like some chap sticks I've used before.

I really liked this product.I feel like it worked really well on my lips.My lips used to be so dry but now that I tried this I don’t have chapped lips no more so i would suggest buying this it will solve your lip problems and there is a tingling sensation when I first applied it but that was just the balm working.

This chapstick is AMAZING! It’s perfect for in the go and will last for a life time! It gets rid of the chapped,  dryness of your lips and makes them incredibly soft! It’s affordable and cheap and you can get in anywhere! The only downfall is you have to apply it with your finger! But it’s totally worth it!

This is my favorite miracle in a jar lip product! I seriously don’t think that Carmex can be beat. I have been through jars of this stuff and just continue to replace them. It’s an awesome value and they could easily charge 3x what they do. The only thing I’m not crazy about it having to use my fingers to apply.

There is nothing I have ever found that works better for cold sore relief and moisturizing than Carmex.  You can buy it at any drug store and it works great!  It is affordable, I would say fairly gentle as far as cold sore relief products go.  The smell can be harsh but it isn't unpleasant to me.
