This is one of my favorite because of the way my lips feel when I apply it. It doesn't have the best smell, but if you have extremely dry lips it can be a lip saver!

I would like to say that im in love but I absolutely despise the strong (peppermint?) smell that it has. Due to not being a person big on reading, I am not positive what it contains but if my lip is splintered, it does burn like crazy. Maybe softer chemicals? Thanks!

As soon as i put this balm on i felt a cooling feeling on my lips, which i loved. All around this is a great lip balm for chapped lips because it really makes them soft and heals them too. Application is really easy and I will continue to buy carmex products.

This one falls right with blistex for me. I love it's smell. It's also minty but very subtle. Perfect for winters and summers for cold sores. I love this product always have one somewhere in a purse. Definitely recommended!

I couldn't imagine getting through chapped lip season without this god sent! I've tried so many things before and nothing beats the original Carmex out of the jar. All you need is a little bit on your chapped/sore lips or cold sores and this will clear it up

This has to be my top favorite chapstick! I love the feeling it gives your lips when you apply it, it's a more oily feeling but it's not like over the top! It's priced perfect for how long it last! I would totally buy again!
Who in the world hasn't tried Carmex?!?! I brought it from Walmart because I was out shopping and need something for my lips immediately. Carmex provides some moisture, last a long time, but it doesn't make your lips feel softer.

My holy grail lip balm!!! I switched to Carmex over a year ago and it was the best decision ever. It works wonders on my lips since it gets chapped fast and is very affordable! I would definitely recommend this to others!!

Carmex is hands down my favorite beauty product. It heals my chapped lips within one or two applications, and I occasionally put it on wind burn during the winter. I haven't found any other product that works quite like it.

I really love Carmex it’s has a cooling effect I didn’t think it was like that its smooth and gentle on the lips doesn’t feel dry It it definitely effective when your lips feel dry and sore I would love to see it in a gloss kind of way but it works and it’s great.
