What can I say about this magical stuff.  I use it like crazy in the winter when things start getting chapped  I also put it on cuts and rough skin and it helps considerably.  It is definitely pungent but it also definitely works.  I have been using this stuff since the 80's

This is perfect! I use this any time I have a cold sore, I apply with a finger and make sure not to double dip so I don't spread the germs around. But, this works like a charm and I would recommend this over anything else to help treat cold sores, or cracked, dry lips! Perfect for all seasons 🙂

I have been using Carmex since I was a freshman in high school. I started using these jars, but have since become a fan of the tubes. The product is amazing. It keeps my lips moisturized, and leaves them with a glossy look. I moved away from this container simply because I did not like the excess left on my finger from applying the chspstick.

This is a rich product. It moisturizes your lips while making it glow and shine. It helps it to become soft and smooth. This brand is all I use because it keeps my lips looking nice and healthy. I have recommended this brand to some of my friends and family and they love it and it’s all they use.

I bought this product as a result of having a cold sore and my friend told me that this would help. I am a first time user and found the packaging to be quite durable. It was easy to use and I applied directly to the cold sore. I would buy this product again as it helped keep my lips moist.

Carmex's Lip Moisturizer is the only product I can use because all other brands have a chemical that breaks out my skin. I have been using this product for over ten years and have never had a problem, other than misplacing them often lol. I will continue to purchase as long as it is being sold.

It's an okay lip balm. I mean it works well, but I find it to be sticky and it smells weird and awful. But that's just me and my opinion. Other then that, it gets the job done and your lips don't get chapped.
