I like to use carmex on those days when my lips are really dry especially in winter. It is my default fall back for dry/irritated lips and it has never let me down. Only thing I worry is that it is not natural and has petroleum product in it. Otherwise I would use it daily.

Love Love Love!! It always leaves my lips feeling smooth!! It's super long lasting, and I always apply before liquid lipstick. I also love the packaging. It's small enough to fit into my small handbag without taking up too much space. Will always be my go to! Totally recommend!

I have used carmex for as long as I can remember and it has always been my go to for when my lips are extremely chapped. I do not use this on a daily basis because I do not like the taste/smell of it. However, it is my number one when I need soft lips fast. I would recommend.

I really enjoy using this product. It's very moisturizing and easy to apply, it usually takes one to two coats to reach my desired level of softness on my lips, which is very good by my books. I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants a cheap alternative to most of the other chap sticks out there. Though I have never used it for cold sore relief I've heard it works miracles on that too. The only thing I'd change about this product is the smell.

Carmax is classic! Everyone's 2nd go to after Chapstick, i think. I'd say Carmax definitely works and moisturizes but i hate the taste when you mistakenly lick your lips and i hate the smell. Everything else is cool and convenient.

I love to use this on my lips during the winter time. It does help comfort cold sores. Helps prevent chapped windburned lips. I love that leaves a protective medicated barrier on lips and cold sore.

I use this product every single night. It helps keep my lips plump and moisturized and when I wake up they are so hydrated. I will always rebuy this product and I love the jar that it comes in. Don't sleep on this Carmex! I think it's a staple item for anyone with dry lips!
