I love my carmex. I can't go a day without using it. My lips change with the weather but carmex always works for soothing my chapped or dry lips especially during the colder months. They are small and easy to use. I put it under my lipstick all the time to prevent dryness. They are affordable and they last a while. A little goes a long way.

this is my go to in the cold winter months. Carmex is really the only thing that helps with my extremely dry lips that time of year. The only thing is if i use it too often or when my lips aren't super dry, it makes my lips super dry.

This stuff works great. It doesnt have the pleasant scent or hint of flavor that a lot of other chapsticks have. But if you have extremely chapped lips or are going to be in an extremely cold environment, this is probably the way to go

I know this isn't the best stuff to use for your lips but oh my gosh I am addicted to it! I've been using this since I was a little girl and it's the only chapstick that helps with my dry lips. And its drugstore! I constantly buy this and the original in the jar is the best one

Love Carmex!! Works great, love the minty tingling and soft lips it provides. I have tried Carmex in the chapstick, lip balm container, and in the jar and the jar is by far my least favorite. Carmex seems to be thicker than other chapsticks, so the jar just causes sticky fingers that are a struggle to clean and leaves a mess

It does help with cold sores it works great and makes your lips soft but I do not like the smell of it at all and it kind of burns when you put it on I like that feeling but I do not like the smell but I would totally buy it again!!

I have been using this for moisturizing my lips for as long as I can remember. Whenever I get allergies (which happens very often) my lips get very dry. No type of chapstick helps when that happens (even my favourite burt's bees) except for this lip balm. The smell may be a bit overwhelming, but it really gets the job done.

This is like one of the chapsticks that lots of people use, they're cheap and actually feel like its helping your lips. If your lips dry then you applyy Carmex it cools them down from burning dryness. Id definitely will buy again!!!!!!!!!!!!

This has always been the one lol moisturizers I turn too. I love how it works so quick. It's very easy to apply I use my finger and just smear it on my lips. I will always use Carmex, it's by far better then other products to me.

The ultimate go-to for chapped lips. Can't go wrong with the Carmex in a jar. Not only great for chapped lips but also for any other dry or cracked skin on your body. I especially like using it on the outer corners of my nose during the winter cold season. Very soothing.
