Carmex is my absolute favorite in Chapstick healing lip balm! It works the best for me and quickly. It's not stinky smelling (like overly medicated) and doesn't burn horrifically when applying.

It feels good for a couple of minutes, but I've been using different kinds of lip balms and chapsticks for years, Carmex has been the only brand to ever dry up my lips. I was expected my lips to be baby soft but I only got the opposite and you have to keep applying.

I use this little guy every day. I put on one heavy swipe in the morning before I head out the door and that's it. It keeps my lips soft for the whole day. During the winter I'll apply 2-3 times a day to prevent cracking. It doesn't dry out your lips like regular Chapstick that needs to reapplied constantly.

really great for very damaged lips! burns a bit when applying, but is very helpful healing chapped lips, especially when used at night. applies quite thick and greasy, but it pays off when it completely heals your lips. I was very sad when I discovered I lost mine, and haven't had time to buy a replacement.

I have been using carmax for a few months now and i love it, it works perfect for me. This product helps keep my lips moist, but most importantly keeps them from getting dry and start peeling.

Carmex is ALWAYS in our medicine cabinet. This is the best product for severely Chapped lips and fever blisters.  I have been using this product for over 25 years. It's easy to find and reasonably priced. I have and will recommend it to friends and family.
