  • "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

I mistakingly applied this on my cold sore and it grew 10x its size. Might have been the biggest one I ever had. I do not recommend this for cold sores at all. There's otc products you can try that work better.

I like Carmex, its usually cheaper than others. I don't much like the smell, its like artificial cherry and mint. And in the little tub it makes it harder to get out and apply it. Almost makes it not worthwhile. It's a bargain but also a hassle.

I love this stuff. I have these little jars everywhere. The really give you instant moisture. A little goes a long way. I have also used the Carmex on my daughters cheeks in the winter time when they are extra dry.

This is the original and it is the best carmex product out there as well. The others do not compare. It is long lasting. I have been using this for years and won't switch to anything else. The packaging is very convenient. I would recommend.

This product is amazing on my lips! I can feel them healing, opposed to EOS which made my lips break out and have a rash. This product helped my lips heal and soften. I would recommend this product to everyone

The original Carmex works just fine for me. I never get cold sores so don't use it for that. I like its texture and its vanilla scent. It's soothing on dry, chapped lips. It's getting harder to find it everywhere like it used to be, though.

This stuff is amazing. It really helps repair chapped/cracked lips. A few people I know actually even use it for the outside of their nose when the weather gets dry and it helps ease the dry/stinging nose feeling.

The smell is the strong Carmex smell which some do like; however, I am not a huge fan. It also melts very very easily if left in the car for a little while, and I find that it clumps on my lips easily too.

This product is amazing. It is kinda hard to find in stores near me, but my family has one container that we have had for a few years. I know it sounds gross, but it takes so little, our jar has lasted forever.
