  • "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

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.

I tend to get cold sores when the seasons change and my lips also get dry very often so using this on my cold sore just helps make it smaller and so that it doesn’t each and also moisture’s my lips perfectly. I recommend this to my friends that have coldsores too and they love it

Carmex is amazing. I love it more than any other lip product hands down. The only thing that could make it better is a stick form, but I know that would mess with the formula so I'm happy with the jar.

I've only used this a few times myself with great results. Other members of my family have also used this product with excellent results as well. Will continue to use as needed.

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

Love this stuff! Protects and moisturizes. Can share easily with others because you don’t need to apply it directly to your lips. Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Jar

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.
