  • "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 like this brand. But I don't like how you have to use your fingers to apply it. It leaves my fingers feeling weird afterwards. And it doesn't get applied very well

I have been a carmex chapstick user for a very long time. This is the chapstick you wear when your lips are bad. It's my absolute go to during a runny nose and basically all of the winter. It locks in moisture and prevents the rudolf look from a bad cold. Highly recommend this product for the winter months. It's very heavy and noticeable. Not something to wear everyday. Just when your lips really need it.

Everyone loves carmex. I.T is an old time favorite of my whole family. I.T works wonders and lasts what seems like forever. The only drawback is the strong smell and awful taste. I.T is easy to use and I will continue to purchase I.T. The product is great, just try not to get I.T in your mouth!

I've used this product my whole life and I will forever use it. This is used religiously especially during the winter. I also like using this after I exfoliate my lips. The tingle makes me feel like it's doing something. Easy to apply but TASTES GROSS. Don't get too carried away when applying

Everytime I have a cold sore I buy this! It is amazing and helps so much! I bought it at walmart. It most definitely met my expectations and exceeded them! I could have gotten it cheaper if I would have gone to the dollar store but good price though!! I would definitely buy this again!

Oh Carmex, how you remind me of middle school! I have used this lip balm for such a long time! I love it. I don't necessarily enjoy the jar version of this, though, as it seems a little un-hygenic to stick your finger inside the jar everytime. When I am able to find the stick version, I buy those.

Carmex always helps with my chapped lips during the winter. I do hate having to use my finger to apply the balm to my lips, so would probably recommend the liquid ointment for individuals in a hurry and those that don't like a mess! Carmex definitely helps with chapped lips despite the mess!

Carmex is a high school classic lol. But now I use this before I apply my lippies especially if they are matte. Never fails to disappoint, just make sure you remove before using a liner or it won't show up on your lips. Definitely works and it's especially perfect in the dry air winter months

I love this stuff! Especially when we are up in the cold weather/mountains and I want something to smooth my lips or around my lips this is the product I use!! I purchased this at the Navy Exchange. I would definitely purchase this again! I love the texture and overall how the product feels!
