Carmex is always my go to chapstick when I have really chapped lips. It doesn’t smell the greatest but it works really well. It’s also pretty cheap for the quality, and can be found at pretty much every store that sells chapstick.

The OG of lip balm. When my lips are chapped and dry behind belief i like to use carmex instead of my eos ball. I️ feel like I️t gives intense moisture and treatment. When i put I️t in and I️t burns a little Ik it’s doing its job

I use this when I feel a cold sore coming on. This and abreva are my power team when it comes to cold sores. Not to mention this is great for cold season as my lips get super dried out in the winter. I recommend this to everyone.

Honestly a life saver when i get really dry winter lips. I also get cold sores easily in winter so I carry carmex with me. Plus i tend to be sensitive to some lip balms and i can always count on carmex to calm down any reactions.

Great for keeping my lips moisturized especially during the harsh winter months. I don’t use this version anymore because I don’t like using my finger to apply it, I have long nails most of the time and I hate when it gets in there.
