This stuff works great. It doesnt have the pleasant scent or hint of flavor that a lot of other chapsticks have. But if you have extremely chapped lips or are going to be in an extremely cold environment, this is probably the way to go

This is the goat of all lip balms and moisturizers, this product heals your lips and mouisturizes no matter if your lips haven't see the day of light or just need an everyday, what I love is you can feel it working with every application, I prefer the little pot form because it last me forever, this is always in my makeup routine.

I tend to only use Carmex when I feel a cold sore/fever blister forming. As soon as I feel it, I apply Carmex several times throughout the day until it is gone. If I start it soon enough, the cold sore week never develop into anything.

I know this isn't the best stuff to use for your lips but oh my gosh I am addicted to it! I've been using this since I was a little girl and it's the only chapstick that helps with my dry lips. And its drugstore! I constantly buy this and the original in the jar is the best one

Carmex definitely gets the job done to protect your lips and cure chapped lips. It is long lasting and a good size product. However, I cannot get past the strong smell. That is too much of a turn off that I won't be buying this again.

Love Carmex!! Works great, love the minty tingling and soft lips it provides. I have tried Carmex in the chapstick, lip balm container, and in the jar and the jar is by far my least favorite. Carmex seems to be thicker than other chapsticks, so the jar just causes sticky fingers that are a struggle to clean and leaves a mess

This is the stuff my mom used to put on me and my sister back in the 80's before we played in the snow! Oh my that awful Vaseline taste! I guess it prevented us from some sort of frost bite, so I am going to give it 4 stars😂😂! Thanks for saving my lips Carmex!!

I will use carmex if I have no other lip moisturizer on hand. I is definitely not my "go-to" treatment. I have chapped lips 9 months out of the year, and for some reason carmex just doesn't solve my dryness problem. It seems to make my skin feel extremely oily and is much thicker/heavy duty than other chapsticks. For some that may be a good thing, but if you're like me and have extremely sensitive skin, then a heavy duty vaseline-like lip moisturizer just makes you feel like a greasy mess.

I would always want to wear matte lipstick but then by the end of the day my lips would be all cracked and dried. It was horrible. And previously I had used EOS but I never really saw or felt like my lips were getting better. Luckily I switched to carmex and let me tell you, this chap stick seriously helped my lips in just two days.

I bought this product because it was very popular amongst my friends. I found that it didn’t meet my expectations because I don’t like the feeling of Vaseline on my lips, it left me with a heavy greasy feeling. I also found the jar inconvenient for applying a chapstick to your lips using your fingers which may or may not be clean
