I feel that this is so oily at times and it doesn't really help that much when it comes to cold sores. The camphor does have a nice chilling effect though.

Good product but packaging is a no no for me . Scooping out while having longer nails is not only irritating to clean off / out on , it's very unsanitary.

This stuff is amazing. I use this over any other lip care product for during the winter months. It does smell and taste a little funky, but it's worth it.

Carnes is a staple in my household as well as in my beauty routine. It gives my lips the moisture and protection they need especially in the winter months

Healing. Softening. Does wonders on extremely chapped lips. Son licks his lips and this healed the little soreness and chapped skin he get around his lips.

Carmex is a great brand for lips. Its doesn't dry out, not does it get thst gooey feeling. Prevents my lips from cracking and peeling. I use this everyday.

Carmex is a classic! It's been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. The yucky taste is also a plus because it keeps you for licking your lips!
