  • "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

I could not live without this chapstick!!! Carmel is so addicting. I use it everyday, multiple times a day. It gives your lips a little tingle while also hydrating them really well. highly recommend.

I hated this product!! I was having pretty dry lips last winter so I wanted a more heavy duty lip balm than I currently own. I wanted something affordable and have heard a lot of good things about this brand. Now I normally don't have super dry lips but after a day of using this I started noticing my lips were getting very dry. I didn't think much of it and kept on applying more Carmex. After almost a week of using this my lips were Raw!! Very painful, dry and burning. Right when I stopped using this and switched to something else, my lips cleared right up and were nice and moisturized again. For some reason this product just did not work for me.

While this product feels cool and "tingly", you must continue to use it or your lips will crack and peel like crazy!! I never thought I'd have a lip balm dependency issue.

This has been around for the longest now I have seen it in my family generation for awhile now. I see Its the best lip balm for dry lips and helps heal cracked and dry lips.

This is my go to product for prepping my lips for my lip product!  It is super moisturizing and great for keeping my lip moist even with super drying lip products. It will always be in my makeup bag!

I love this. It helps my lips feel soft and not so dry. I love how it feels them as soon as I put it on. Also I love how it has medicine in it and it’s not expensive and the others. It’s affordable and better then other chapsticks.
