Never had a problem with Carmen! I keep this kind at my desk at work! It gets a pass from me, I just don’t like that it makes my lips LOOK white and dry but I still like the product! Depending on the location it’s not that pricey! I would buy it again, sure!

I am someone who normally loses their chapstick very frequently so I thought I'd try this to see how this would work. I love the design of the jar and provides access to all of the product and a little goes a long way, last a very long time

I love any and all of the Carmex products. It's the only one that helps my lips in the winter months. My lips chap very easily and so does my oldest daughters. We both use this a lot throughout the year. Especially in the winter. And it's very affordable and it doesn't take a lot at a time.

This is one of my good old standbys for lip care. I have been using it for 20 years. Anytime my lips are chapped or tender from wind or son Carmex heals it right up. I have the little tubs stashed all over my house.

I use this is the winter. It improves and prevents cracked lips. The smell isn't great, but it doesn't really bother me, and the camphor is what makes it effective.

Carmex lip balm does do as it says it does, but I My self am not a fan. It doesn't smell pleasant at all and feels thick and sticky when applied. I only use it in winter if my lips crack.

A classic moisturizer, growing up my mom always swore by this product and I must agree. The smell is a bit off putting and the taste isn't so great but I will continue to purchase this product. Reasonable price as well

My husband uses Carmex Lip Balm religiously and I occasionally use his as well. Carmex isn't my favorite lip balm to use. I don't like the smell of the product and always feel like it's on my lips in a very thick layer. I also don't like the crusty look
