This product is amazing and refreshing. It leaves your lips feeling minty and cool. It works so well for the price so I buy this product quite frequently. It is affordable so anyone could buy it. I would definitely buy this product again because of the quality and price.

I like the sort of menthol-ish smell to it. It's very moisturizing and lasts a long time. Times when my lips have gotten very dry or sometimes in the winter I apply this. You can buy these almost anywhere. They're not expensive.

One of the best lip balm to help dry lips nice again. Such a good price as well! Last quite awhile so no need to spend more money. Doesn't smell bad or have much of a scent. I like using jars rather then a stick. would recommend to anyone who wants chapped lips fixed

During the brisk winter months, I can never go wrong with a simple pot of CARMEX. It applies smoothly, and it keeps my lips moisturized for several hours. I have used this product for years, and I have never found anything that compares to it. I definitely recommend it!

You can never go wrong with the old school/ original lip balm that every one who grew up in the 90's should know about. The lip balm that started the craze. I can't say enough good things about it. As a teen I would constantly apply this to my lips. Out of all my teenage non existing problems chap lips was never one of them.

This product heals cracked lips quickly, but that is about all it is good for. It makes the lips extremely greasy. I have used this product for cracked lips my entire life, and will continue to do so. I recommend this product to anyone with severely dry, cracked lips

In the winter my lips get soooo dry and it hurts!! It’s hard to come across a “chap stick” that helps with the pain but this is medicated which is good once it absorbs. My only complaint is the smell and since it’s on your lips it gets in your mouth and of course it isn’t tasty. It is real gentle as well and it’s not pricey whatsoever. I would absolutely recommend this product.

love the original Carmex regular jars its always been amazing to use.
I have always had a jar of Carmex since I was 10 years old and it always seems to meet my expectations.
I always buy it from Walgreens for a very good price.

I love carmel products. I use it everytime I feel a cold sore coming. I usually buy them at Walgreens. It helps my cold sore but I don't like how the stuff can be really sticky. I continue to buy it because it really does work just don't like how it's sticky. But other than that it's amazing stuff. Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

Camex leaves this cool minty feeling on your lips and I've trusted this brand since I was a kid! So it was definitely okay to use. The Cold Sore part of it tingles a bit and it came with a guide on how to take care of the cold sore and how to prevent it. I recommend it!
