  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 823 reviews
  • "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

Favorite lip product. I use it everyday before I apply my makeup. Only downside is that it's hard to use with acrylic nails. Also, it gets hard to use when you've used most of it up.

Whenever my lips are severely chapped I turn to Carmex. It has a nice tingle and it moisturizes well. The only thing is that it does have a very medicinal smell.

This is one of my favorite lip products, especially during the winter, when everything is freezing cold and dry. However, Carmex is absolutely great for dry, chapped lips all year around. I tend to put it on at night after I've done my skincare routine, and after exfoliating my lips. In the morning, I'll rub a washcloth over my lips again, and whatever wasn't exfoliated the night before comes right off, leaving my lips soft and smooth. I love it, and I really wish that I'd started using it sooner!

This is product is super old school for me, iv been usong it forever. It did tend to dry my lips out the last time I used it. It's very simple and clean packaging. I bought this product at target for very cheap. I would recommend this to others.

I used to use this chapstick all the time about 10 years ago! I stopped using it mainly because I needed something more moisturizing! It’s not a bad product by any means! It just wasn’t for me...........
