This is nice, I used it in the past it just doesn’t last as long as I wanted but it’s easy to apply l used for over a year and it comes really cheap I just have dry lips so I need something stronger, If your lips are not super dry then this is for you!

Unfortunately, I get cold sores and fairly often. The first hint of a tingle or itch, I reach for the Carmex! It’s a miracle! Typically, it stops the cold sore from even appearing! I recommend this to all my friends and even use it as a cuticle cream!!

It’s a fave period. Carmex keeps your lips soft and gives it a shine. It last long and a little goes a long way. It works well under lipstick and as a lip
Primer. Not to mention the tingly sensation you get on the lips after applying it’s a winter fave.

Carmex is amazing! When my lips need recovery from the cold it’s doesn’t it’s job! It stays on for a good amount of time, enough to heal my lips. It’s such good value for the price! I would definitely tell my friends to get Carmex if they need healing.

This is THE ONLY product I reach for when I have a cold. It dries the cold sores right up, like, after a good nights sleep. Keeps my lips from drying out with all the gross mouth breathing and the camphor is so good for my sinuses. Love the medication, so effective and one little jar lasts forever. Not what I like on a daily basis, but when I need it—I gotta have it.

These are absolutely, positively amazing. And they are very long lasting. I have had mine for months. It's really good, but obviously does not have a lovely smell. It does it's job very well though, and keeps my lips from drying out in the winter.

I use this particular lip balm daily! I absolutely love it! It moisturizes my lips perfectly and even has a medicated sensation to it when I apply it. This is great for the colder months with that dry cold air leaves your lips cracked often times.

Well, this is just a classic. I remember using this in kindergarten. I would always steal my moms heheh. I love the smell although it’s quite a strong one. If it’s in front of me at a checkout line I normally don’t have the self control to not buy it.
