I use this product almost every day this time of the year its really good for dry or chaped lips. My lips tend to get very chaped around this time of the year and carmex really helps with my lips and i like the way it smells and feels on my lips.

This works perfect for chapped lips from winter cold and wind. Very good price and easy to open. Wish they would make it in a stick vs a round container so I don’t have to use my finger. All in all a nice product that could use a redesign and maybe a better scent, smells alittle medicinal.

I'm pretty sure everyone with super chapped lips has reached for Carmex before. It's gotta be a household staple. It's not the most flattering packaging, but it works and that's all that matters. I keep a pot of Carmex next to my bed to wear at night.

If you have cracked lips.. beware this will burn. It feels soothing on semi dry and normal lips but extremely dry will burn BUT it will work. The camphor is a  natural "healing" ingredient so if you can last through the slight tingle this is a good one.

Keeps your lips feeling great. The smell isn’t the greatest. But very long lasting and does its job. Not on the pricey side either. Easy to apply and small enough to stay in your pocket. Even tho it’s not my top choice I would still use it again

As a trumpet player, these were always a go to! Nice texture, great feel and not too greasy that allowed us to play and keep our lips moisturizer without any issues. I always liked the pot version best, but I’m sure all the others are great as well!

This is the ‘ go to ‘ for chapped lips. It can heal within days. Gentle not harsh at all. It’s a bit pricey for something so little but works wonders. I did meet my expectations with this Carmex. I would definitely keep buying Carmex until death

Really good for what it is. Excellent at relieving severely chapped lips and keeping them smooth through the coldest and driest days. Used to be my daily go-to. Not a big fan of the smell/taste though...could definitely improve on the original.
