Regular ole carmex works wonders in the winter! Especially if you have a raw nose from it being runny. Smells good too, and super cheap and I think we all know carmex last forever.

I love this just as much as burt's bees and is perfect for chapped lips in the winter and works almost instantly. I applied this and literally a few hours later my soars went down.

I absolutely live for Carmex. I buy them 5 or more at a time because I hate to be without it...ever. I have tried other medicated brands but NONE of them can hold a candle to Carmex. I personally love the original (the one in the little pot) but in a pinch I will use the one in the tube.

It feels great on my lips and didn't have any burning sensation, it wasn't pricey, it had good packaging. There is a down side, it doesn't smell and has a gross favoring. I would recommend it and buy it again.

One of the first chapped lip treatments I ever used. Gentle and very effective. I've used for many years. Great value. Used for many years. Lasts a long time. Yes I recommend highly.

Carmex lip balm is a very strong formula and can sometimes burn if the lips are extremely chapped.  Overall I think that it does a decent job for the price you pay for it.

Very easy to use and it makes any roughness on your lips or cracks quickly heal and smoothen out. It most definitely exceeded my expectations , I love to keep it in my purse always I feel incomplete without it.
