  • "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

This Chapstick works well, however, the taste and smell isn't quite worth it for me. A lot of my friends love it and it works well, however, it's not my preference.

This is my go to, daily chapstick. I apply this daily and it's one of the few lip products that doesn't cause my lips to swell and redden as I have super sensitive lips. Moisturizes and feels smooth. Long lasting, also!

My parents always kept jars of this lip balm on hand when I was growing up. It's the best thing for severely chapped lips and the mentholated scent makes me nostalgic.

This product is amazing. It works great for getting rid of cold sores. It does sting when you put it on but once you get used to it it become reveling. I bought it at my local drug store. But I know you can buy it online. I would buy this product again.

This is great for the brutal cold months. I keep a tube handy in my school aged child's back pack all winter and it's made such a difference in her dry chappy lips.

Carmex is great and works well, but kind of reminds me of my dad. Using the jar makes your fingers sticky but the chapstick works well. When I first started using it it burned a little bit but I got used to it and it works really well. It is a bit sticky.

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.

Classic is the best it seems a little minty but it's not it more of a medicine and it feels like it's making your lips feel better and hydrating them love Carmax very simple and easy to get almost every store has them.

Works great. But the taste is so gross. I would probably never use this product again unless needed. I would recommend to use if needed. But not on a regular basis.
