It works but it's not my fave chapstick to choose. It's good price wise and if you need some chapstick while you're out! I don't like having to stick my finger in the pot

I am so pleased with Carmex that I share it with my family and friends and they all like it too. I never go anywhere without it and there is always a tube next to my bed.

Carmex is a classic for a reason! It does a great job at moisturizing your lips and keeping them healthy. It does not do anything for cold sores though- I would not recommend it for that purpose!

Lifesaver during the colder months. I got my hands on carmex last winter and I asked myself one question: Where has this been all my life? When you apply it to your lips, you feel the tingly menthol moisturizer healing your chapped lips just on application. It feels light on the lips and isn't one of those blams that settle on the lips in a weird line.

The pot is small but trust me when I say it'll take a long while to hit the bottom. You don't need a lot of product when applying to chapped lips. A little goes a long way. You don't have to reapply it very often. I find myself applying it frequently because I love the menthol-y feeling you get when you apply it first. It feels as if the magic is happening right under... well your nose. :P

I used to use nothing but carmex, but over the years I just can't even handle it anymore.. The taste is just so bad that I can't even stand to wear it for this specific reason. I really think they should change this, even just to make it completely tasteless would be SO awesome. Yeah, I have to give it a bad review solely based off the taste because unfortunately it always ends up getting in my mouth somehow. + I know there's a cherry and other things, but it's even worse! It's like spraying whipped cream on a turd and expecting it to taste good lol

Easy to use moisturizes and softens lips. I have used this for at least 7 years. It met my expectations very well. I suggest this product strongly.

Carmex is the BEST lip balm ever. I love this lip balm and prefer this above any other lip balm available. I literally will wait for my store to order more if there is none available at the time I go to purchase. This lip balm helps with dry, chapped, and irritated lips. It works immediately and if you have extremely dry lips, this lip balm should be applied throughout the day to have immediate results. I have used this lip balm for 10 years!! It's not greasy or sticky and its not to thick. It is great quality and makes your lips so smooth like silk!

I love Carmex. This product has been a long standing contender in my beauty regimen for years. It's easy to apply and use. I wouldn't advice you to leave it in a hot car.
