  • "I have been using Carmex for forever. Nothing I've found even comes close to the moisturizing and healing this gives. Recently, I found the original version in tube form (I'm not a fan of the flavored one) and it made my day lol!" in 697 reviews

I always have   especially during winter when my lips are very chapped. I love how small it is. And it's affordable. It is very easy apply and use. It's long lasting for sure but I never have till the end of the jar, I always end up losing it. I would buy this again.

This is one of my familys and older even our older generations go to lip repair treatment . it Hydrates and heals rough dry cracked lips . it looks similar to a simple gloss and smooths on with a tingling sensation. Its the only lip treatment that both men and women use as it is unisex wear for the lips

This has really helped my lips when they've been chapped, when they've been dry, and even for when they've just looked dull to me. It's a great moisturizer. It really repairs and freshens lips. It's a great fit for your purse so you can have it whenever, wherever.

I think the biggest part of my love for this is because it is what I used as a kid. The smell is very strong and it is very "heavy" on the lips, but it definitely does the job for my insanely dry lips.

I buy Carmex Moisturizing lip balm for harsh winter weather.  Its a must for winter. I always loved the cute little package it comes in and its definitely a great value from Walmart.  I've been using for year's.  Would buy again and recommend.

Carmex is absolutely THE best lip balm to use when you have a cold sore/chapped lips! It never fails to relieve any lip pain I may have. The only con I have with it would be the packaging - I have acrylic nails on typically and it's difficult to grab the product.

Carmex has been, definitely always will be, my number one chapstick! It is priced at a great value that can be bought at every grocery/pharmacy store, with the simple applicator of your finger! Differs for all, but helped cure cold sores and kept hydrated 4-6 hrs.

Carmex has been out for a long time and I believe it's better than any brand to sooth your cracked chapped lips . It has a pleasant smell and glides like oil I love this product and I would be repurchasing again

Although the flavor isn't that great, it is worth it. This is cheap, available everywhere, and works like no other! For just $0.99, you get something that lasts forever and treats not only chapped lips but irritated skin as well. I always keep my Carmex with me!
