Carmex is a really good product. All you need is to apply a little bit and you'll be done. You can get this at any local drug store. I recomend this product.

Works very well for coldsores. I used to use this all the time when I was little because I had blisters on my face almost all the time. Carmax saved the day.

This is my go to to heal and soothe my cold sores. I've been using it since I was a kid. A fraction of the price of other brands and just as effective.

Best chapstick in town! hands down. can't get enough of this stuff. It is long lasting, and could be used as a lip gloss while it moisturizers your lips too.

I consider the packaging to be kind of gross because you have to dip you finger into it. Also, the lack of the tingling sensation just doesn't cut it for me.

I have been using this since I was a child. I just wish it lasted a bit longer. It moisturizes my lips, but once it's absorbed it makes them dry again.

I like Carmex when I have a cold or cold sore on my lips. I use it at the base of my nose when I have a cold and blow my nose a lot to where my nose is raw.
