  • "I swear I'm addicted to the smell of Original Carmex. This lip balm is my jam during those cold, dry winter months! Great protection from the elements. " in 4359 reviews
  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 823 reviews
  • "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 don’t know about you, but I always keep a pot of this I my purse & another in my makeup bag! It’s the first step in my morning beauty routine & help moisturize my lips/prep them for any color I want to add before I start the day!

I will always go back to this product. It is one of the only chap sticks that actually works to heal my dry, cracked lips. It's easy to apply using fingers, may not be the most hygienic packaging but I prefer the pot to the tube.

The product is absolutely wonderful on the lips however it's not very convenient when you're out because you don't want to put your dirty fingers in your Chapstick then rub it on your lips if you don't have time to clean your hands.

This is by far the absolute best chapstick you can buy! From sunburn, chapped lips, cold sores, you name it, it will heal it within 24 hours! The taste is a lil medicinal but it's the only thing I buy when I need chapstick!

I think that personally every person should carry around a carmex with them. They always come in handy trust me, these lipbalms have been there for me since middle school all the way to the end of high school. Never was let down

This has been a long time favorite for intensely chapped lisps. If I apply this everyday in the case of highly chapped lips, they heal faster than with anything else! It doesn't have a nasty taste or smell so that's a huge plus!!

This lip balm is really good at healing your lips and keeping them moisturizing. The only thing about this lip balm is the scent doesn't smell to well. It did meet my expectations but I didn't like the smell of it. It wasn't to pleasing at all. I barely recommend it.

Carmen lip balm is a good product. The consistency can be a little thick and it doesn't have the best scent, but it does get the job done when you have cracked sore lips.

It's a classic product. Wonderful for cold Minnesota winters where chapped lips are an everyday occurrence. I prefer the squeeze tube because then you don't have to stick your gross fingers in the little container, but if this is all I have on hand I won't complain.

I cannot live without this. I use it on my lips every day and every night before bed, especially right after exfoliating them so they're nice and smooth. It takes a while to get through the little pot too so one pot lasts a while.
