I think everyone needs this! Especially in the fall time, because that's when you'r lips begin to dry out quickly. You can always purchase one at Walmart or ever the dollar store! I recommend this for everyone!

This product is a life saver during winter when my lips get chapped! No matter what I can always count on it to sooth my lips and keep them moist without having to reapply too often

A little harsh but it does the trick! If your lips are super crack or dry it can burn when applied, but there's almost immediate relief! It smells medicated, which I personally enjoy! A little goes a long way!

Carmax are a really great lip balm but they tend to arm have like a little cooling affect on your lip so like I am and it's very strong in the sand and it does repair my lips but yeah it's a very strong scent

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 how you can feel it working! Most lip balms I feel just sit on your lips and dry out but this one is great because you can feel it working and actually moisturizing your lips!

The jar is my favorite kind of carmax, but it's getting harder to find. It's easy to find in my purse and it's easy to use without the feeling that you have it left on your finger.

The brand Carmex has been my go to lip product for as long as I can remember. My mother has used this my whole life. It's one of those products I would swear by, especially for cold sores. The only issue I have with this jar is the product gets gunked up around the outside of the jar.
