  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 823 reviews
  • "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

I’ve used this since I was a child. The packaging is convenient. The product is thick, and a little goes a long way. I personally prefer using the tube kind because fingers carry germs, but the product itself works wonders for dry lips.

This stuff smells kind of menthol-ish to me but it is a staple in our household. Definitely works wonders on dry, cracked lips, which I am super prone too. Literally everyone in my family uses it. Definitely not the most glamorous lip balm out there, but definitely helps the damage.

Awesome product to have around over winter! This stuff heals your lips so nicely! It's super affordable and easy to get a hold of so there's no exclusive product hunting. Many times my lips have been saved and comforted by this brand!!

I am not a fan of Carmel. For me, it feels like I am coating my lips in petroleum which is gross. It doesn’t feel natural and it doesn’t feel like it’s a natural part of my lips. I wouldn’t recommend.... however it is a very popular Lipcare brand.

Another one of my favorite OG chapsticks! This one keeps my lips soft and shiny. I do need to reapply more often, but it’s no big deal. It smells really good too. I’ve always liked chapstick in a pot form more than an actual stick bc it’s easy for me to grab as much as i want.

My mom bought this for me and I really liked it. I oddly enough like the smell for I usually don’t like the medicated type smells. Makes my lips feel great and I would highly recommend to those that wanna save their lips from damaging!

This works great for my husband sores. They go away in no time. Definitely a repeat user. Very effective! He doesn’t even mind the scent. It definitely met all our expectations! Would recommend it to everyone. We buy it all the time.

Love love love this product. I use it every day multiple times. I love to use it with a small makeup brush or I use directly on my lips. I hate using my fingers because I feel like I’m just putting germs around my mouth. Super affordable and easy to find.
