Alright. This stuff is my go to! I stay in Arizona a lot so the hot weather dries me out! My lips get so chapped out there, this saves my lips from falling off lol. It doesn't burn and the wax, Vaseline kinda feel makes it easy to apply and it moisturizes my lips so much!

Oh carmex, gets the job done. But smells like medicine, which sometimes I dont hate. But being a beauty enthusiast and licensed proffesional I definitely know better products that dont smell and tingle so much

I love this product! Everytime I use it i get an instant smoothness to my lips that lasts hours. I love the way it smells and i also really love the fact that it has a mint/cooling affect to it that sooth my cracked, dry, and irritated lips instantly. The packaging is also very nice and handy.

I have been using Carmex since I was a freshman in high school. I started using these jars, but have since become a fan of the tubes. The product is amazing. It keeps my lips moisturized, and leaves them with a glossy look. I moved away from this container simply because I did not like the excess left on my finger from applying the chspstick.

This is the ONLY lip balm I use. It keeps my lips soft and hydrated all year long. Even on the hottest summer days, it works fantastically! It's even better in the winter time with wood stove use, to going out into the cold air and back into a heated car. Keeps your lips moist all year long!

I very much enjoy this lip balm. It heals the lips but also keeps them moisturized. I love the packaging because I can never lose them. At $1 for one tube. I'm extremely pleased with how this product preformed on my lips and my entire family and a ton of my friends use this on a regular basis.

Carmex is Heaven in a jar! I have every form of this.. Tube, Chapstick, and the Jar. It is the only balm I can use that actually heals and protects my lips. Some don't like the smell, but I absolutely love it!

This Carmex for cold sores lip balm jar is very long lasting. I have been using it for years. I like the small canister with the twist on lid. I purchased it at my local Walmart and would recommend it to others.
