  • "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

Carmen is a go to in my household! It is easy to use. You can just use your finger to apply as little or as much as you need. My husband carries this in his pocket on a daily basis. It works wonders on dry cracked lips and also cold sores! Highly recommend!

First of all Carmex has been around for as long as I can remember. So obviously they have done something right. This is always a good go to when you need lip therapy. Soothes cracked, dried out lips. Nice product. classic.

I keep one of these in my nightstand and apply it before bed. Not a huge fan of the taste which is why I don't wear it often during the day. It provides great moisture overnight and I love waking up to smooth and soft lips

All time favorite chapstick. Leaves my lips feeling so moisturized. You can find them anywhere!! I've been using Carmex for years. I buy mine at the dollar store or Walmart. You can even find them at gas stations!

I love carmex products! During the winter my lips get super super chapped and chapstick doesn’t even touch how chapped they are. Carmex stings a little but it definitely helps. It’s my go to for lip prouducts. I keep it all year round and won’t use anything else!

CLASSIC gets them lips super soft no matter what weather. You can always buy it anywhere. It's hard to miss bright yellow packaging. I've been using this since I was 8. If you haven't used it stop playing games and try it.

Can't ever beat carmex! Love this stuff. I have been using this since I was a kid, and in my opinion there is a bit of burning/tingling sensation but I love it! I would highly recommend this for those fall and winter days!

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!
