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.

If I feel a cold sore coming on I just grab my Carmex and stop it in its tracks! I can honestly say the duration of having to suffer a hideous cold sore has been shortened drastically when I started using Carmex!

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

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.

It works great for chapped and dry lips, but DEFINITELY stings in cracks or splits. The chemical-y, menthol-y smell is also off-putting, so this is strictly an overnight treatment. It’s also a little sticky, like Vaseline. But, whatever gets the job done.

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.

During the winter I feel that my lips tend to be very dry and get chapped very easily and this product heals them within a couple days! I got mine from my local Wal-Mart and its a life saver! The packaging is also so cute and easy to use. For sure will be buying this again!
