Love this stuff! You can buy it for such a great price at any store. It doesn’t feel waxy on your lips and is very effective. It for sure met my expectations. The one thing about it is the packaging. I don’t like having to stick my dirty fingers in it but I would buy again.

I don't care for carmex. It does work but it has a very distinct smell and flavor I am not a fan of. However with severe winter chap lips I will buy it, because it heals and protects... Plus because i don't like the flavor I make a conscious effort to avoid licking my lips.

A necessary lip care for the winter! You could literally get it anywhere. It’s medicated so it really worths deep into the lips to moisten and soften them. It’s unbelievably great I love it! I buy it each time the weather goes cold cause my lips deserve protection too lol!

I love using Carmex. I use it for my lips especially in winter season. Its long lasting. There's a tingling feeling but this is because that's how much my lips needed it. I use it around my nostrils for when I'm down with a cold. It helps moisturize so I don't peel. LOVE IT

I purchased a 2 Pack - Carmex Cold Sore Reliever and Lip Moisturizer, Jar at my local Walgreens when I had a cold sore. It did help relieve the pain however it did not help to remove the cold sore itself.  It does what it advertises. I would recommend this product

This carmex balm is a good product. I used it more often when its cold because my lips started to get very dry and also used sometime before i put my lipstick on.

Love it, literally the only thing that ever works my lips always stay smooth and Uncracked with it! Any other product I use always wears off and just leaves a really really gross residue that I absolutely cannot stand! So carmex will always be my go to lip product
