  • "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'm a mouth breather when I sleep so a good chapstick is a must. This formula was a bit thin to stay on my mouth all night but during the day I really enjoyed it. It had a strong smell but I didn't mind it. My lips weren't chapped at all while using this product.

Best stuff ever! I always have a tub of this in my bag or makeup kit. I put this on a night when I have really bad chapped lip and the next morning my lips are 100 times better.  After a couple nights my lips are completely better. :) I need to restock. ~Val

Carmex is perfect for chapped lips. I feel like it lasted much longer than other brands. Other than the smell & having to spread it on with your finger, this product is great. The smell isn't bad, it just isn't fruity or minty like some others :) id recommend it!

I've been using this for many years and it is the best lip product you can buy for dry chapped cracked lips. It really does heal your lips and I love the smell of it and the feel of it. I've always loved the container as well.

This is a classic. I always try and switch up what I use but I always find myself turning back to this baby!!!! It does it's job that's all I can say!! I always have it with me & I apply it to my lips before I start my makeup :)

Wouldn't call this the most convenient packaging since you have to stick your finger in there to get anything which is kind of gross to me but the product does work. I've used it multiple times and there's never been an issue

Another loved product in our house! This works great if you get chapped lips and need some good stuff to put on them! Hubby also swears by this! and its nice to carry.

Beside the fact that carmex is too greasy, the fact that this is in a pot is what bothers me the most. I don't like sticking my finger inside the pot to get the lip balm out. I also don't like that it gets all over my finger.

This Carmex is always good when your lips are super chapped, but I always hate the taste when it gets in my mouth. Also you can always tell when it starts to work because your lips will burn
