  • "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 have been using Carmex Cold Sore Reliever and Lip Moisturizer since I was a teenager, it not only helped my lips stay nice and soft but helped to keep me from having chapped lips from the cold winters of Michigan. It also proved invaluable in treating cold sores helping them heal quickly and taking away the itchiness that happens as it heals. I swear by this product and have passed it down on to my children as well as their friends they grew up with, it's an awesome product that I recommend to everyone!!

Original Carmex in the little can, will ALWAYS be a go to for me. I have been using it for 10 years now and it never lets me down. I use it every single day, especially in the dry winter time.

This product is easy to apply and had results to write home about. While this specific container makes it easy to keep with you on the go, it’s just as easy to lose.

This is the holy grail for when I have dry lips. I typically don't have dry lips, but winter is kicking my but right now. Honestly, this product is so much better than anything else out there as a lip balm. Most products are only a top coat and your lips end up getting dry all over again. But this particular balm, I don't have to reapply as often, and I feel as if it actually heals the dryness. I prefer this one over the actual stick because you can control the amount, and I believe it has more product.

Makes my lips stay smooth and uncapped and a little bit goes along way. I do wish 8i could find different flavors because the original is bland but it works great.

Carmex I think is better than blistex because to me it has more medicine in it! It never failed me! I love buying the round tube because it takes longer to finish!
