  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 823 reviews
  • "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

Doesn't have a good taste so whwn you accidently get it in your moutg it tastes like hand sanitzer. Works great at healing lips but you have to continually use it for a couple weeks.

This was perfect for the colder months. I tend to pick these up and use them during the winter. I purchase mine at Walmart usually, unless i find them somewhere else. I find that they are safe to use on my children, and they don't mind the taste. Yes I would buy them again.

This product definitely keeps my lips moisturized, especially during the winter. You don't have to re-apply over and over. This product would be 5 stars if it tasted better.

Carmen is a classic for me! More intense level lip therapy, absolutely great for people who love through harsh winters etc. I lived in Maine for years nd Carmex is the only thing that got me through it!

I love this only because it reminds me of my childhood. I think maybe it dries your lips out though. And I'm not a fan of the jar and everyone sticking their fingers in there.

This product works well but the scent is overbearing. Also the packaging could be better. I feel like it is unsanitary since I have to dip my finger in the container to use it.

I hate how it's in a tin. Rather it be like the other chapsticks in an actual stick form, would make it easier to apply. It does moisturize though and there isn't really a scent

This is amazing for traveling in the different season because it is such a good product for the lips and I think that if ur lips get really bad this Carmex will fight off the dead skin or just dull lips !

I honestly use Carmex a lot. I'd rather have the lip balm jar so I can apply as much as I want. I bought mine at Walgreens for a very cheap price and it is long lasting , I would very much buy it again!
