I use Carmen in the winter because I know it'll moisture my lips for hoursale without having to reapply! I'm not crasy about the smell, but I had to give it 5 stars because it's super moisturizing!

It's pretty much what you'd expect from Carmex. Super poweful menthol like smell, nice tingly numbing feeling on the lips. Protects my lips pretty well, however try not to lick your lips while wearing!

I give Carmex for-cold-sores lil balm jar a super high rating for effectiveness and a super low rating for odor. It smells absolutely horrible but it does work really well. It's a trade off I suppose.

Carmex was like finding a cure to me. I often get dry lips in the winter time and It makes my lips bleed . I was told to try carmex and it instantly removed the cracked lips and the itchy burning sensation.

Gotta love original carmex. I always use after exfoliating my lips every night and it's my go to balm for chapped lips. It's always hydrating plus I love the menthol, it makes my lips tingle after getting off all the dead skin. love it

Unfortunately my family is prone to cold sores and this has been a staple in our household for as long as I can remember. It definitely helps with the soreness and redness that come with cold sores.

I really love these during the winter time. My lips get very dry and I get cold sores. I always grab carmax as I know it will heal my lips and keep them moisturizerized. Also I prefer the round tube then the squeez tube since I feel like I can put more.
