I love Carmex! I feels for creamy on my lips and it has good smell. It's a good value and long lasting. It also has a minty nest. The packaging is nothing special and I would buy this again.

This used to be my go to. You got that tingling sensation when you applied it but I never enjoyed the taste. I have plenty of friends and family that swear by Carmex but I prefer others.

Work's the best for me during the long COLD winters in MN. I really like the jar because you can really control the amount you use, it also won't end up in the cap.

You can't ever go wrong with Carmax! It's great to have for the winter. I bought it at my local drug store. It's minty the only thing I don't like it's that you have to use your finger but other then that it works great.
