  • "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

Smells like Carmex obviously which isn't a great smell but whatever. I use this in the winter months because that's when I usually develop cold sores. I use it as a preventative measure now, but when I first got a cold sore this stuff healed it asap!

I always have to use carmex when my lips gets dry and cracked. This always leaves my lips smooth. I cannot leave my house with grabbing my carmex. Not only do I like it but my boyfriend does too, he always takes mine so that’s why I buy the variety pack.

Love Carmex! I’m not too crazy of the smell half the time but it’s the only product that is effective on my super dry and always chapped lips. I constantly buy it and will continue to! It is available just about everywhere which is super convenient.

These are very good, they’re super moisturizing, the only downside is the smell, which personally I’m not a huge fan of, but these definitely get the job done, my mom has had these in the house for as long as I can remember.

Carmex has always been good for multiple things. I used it while I had a cold on my lips and nose for the irritation during my cold.. it helped SO much. I bought it at our local CVS. I have multiple things of it to ensure I have some everywhere I go.

THIS IS THE BEST CHAPSTICK EVER this I would totally use because it is so gentle on your lips it makes them less chapped within hours this chapstick was such a good value because it was super cheap and easy to buy. I would totally like to buy again

If your looking for medicated lip balm this is one of my favorites. It does wonders for overly dry lips. It has a strong medicated smell though. So it is not everyone’s cup of tea. I get pretty dehydrated in winter and this is what I like to reach for.
