This is hands down my go to for chapped or sunburnt lips or even them nasty cold sores that come around every now and then. It is not pricey at all, great value. It use this item quite often. It is not messy, unless you leave in a hot car lol but overall great product

I use this when I have super dry lips and put it on overnight to help let it set it. This way when I wake up in the morning my lips have had all night to become refreshed. I do usually prefer it to be in a tube though over the container you have to dip you finger in..

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

This will always be a classic for me! It keeps my lips very moisturized. I tend to use this for when my lips are very dry. I love how small and compact it is. I can toss it in my purse. I would definitely recommend to others.

This is my holy grail lip balm/treatment. I've been using this product for more than 15 years now and always have it on hand-in all my purses, my bathrooms, my work desk. I have dry lips and this product always soothes and soften my lips. Great product

I’ve used this product for years. It works great for extremely chapped lips, which i struggle with. I don’t mind the smell, but it is fairly strong. I would highly recommend it to anyone in need of a good lip healing product.

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.
