  • "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

It's a classic product. Wonderful for cold Minnesota winters where chapped lips are an everyday occurrence. I prefer the squeeze tube because then you don't have to stick your gross fingers in the little container, but if this is all I have on hand I won't complain.

I use this often at night to moisturize when I'm not going to see anyone. The smell can be a bit much and off-putting. The texture can also be quite goopy and sticky. But it definitely moisturizes, sometimes to the point where your lips can feel very dry without it.

This lip balm is really good at healing your lips and keeping them moisturizing. The only thing about this lip balm is the scent doesn't smell to well. It did meet my expectations but I didn't like the smell of it. It wasn't to pleasing at all. I barely recommend it.

The product is absolutely wonderful on the lips however it's not very convenient when you're out because you don't want to put your dirty fingers in your Chapstick then rub it on your lips if you don't have time to clean your hands.

The classic. My mom used this on me as a kid during the cold winter months. Chapped lips and noses were instantly healed. It works great for raw noses from colds as well!

I think that personally every person should carry around a carmex with them. They always come in handy trust me, these lipbalms have been there for me since middle school all the way to the end of high school. Never was let down

I have used the original Carmex in the past, but never during the day (it will actually burn your lips out in the sun). This is a great product to have by your bed to moisturize during the night if you have allergies/cold and are breathing through your mouth a lot.

Wouldn't call this the most convenient packaging since you have to stick your finger in there to get anything which is kind of gross to me but the product does work. I've used it multiple times and there's never been an issue

Carmex is great for cold sores. It can be used everyday, but it speeds up the healing process for cold sores. In everyday use, it keeps the lips moisturized and non sticky. I usually buy it from walgreens or a similar pharmacy. I definitely would recommend this for all purposes.

Best stuff ever! I always have a tub of this in my bag or makeup kit. I put this on a night when I have really bad chapped lip and the next morning my lips are 100 times better.  After a couple nights my lips are completely better. :) I need to restock. ~Val
