  • "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

This product was very good on my lips it helps chapped irritated lips and smells good. This product also worked better than I assumed and it lasted a long time and I’ve been impressed by it before so it’s not the first time and I would deffinantly buy it again

If you’re going to get a Carmex chapstick DO NOT get this one unless you like sticking your finger in greasy chapstick. If you’re going to get one of these chapsticks, I recommend getting the one in the tube because it’s a lot more convenient.

Love this stuff. Similar to vaseline but it’s more of a chemically smelling lip treatment. I don’t use it very often other but sometimes I really love the smell of it. If your lips are super chapped it can burn pretty bad

This stuff is great. It leaves my lips so soft and kissable. I use this stuff all the time and so does my husband. The packaging is kind of boring but don’t let it fool you. This stuff works miracles on dry cracked lips!

I love Carmex and have grown up using this. Especially since I get cold sores once or twice a year. Great product! The only thing I don’t like is the taste. I always buy at the grocery store. I always have a jar and a tube on hand! Great for chapped lips too!

This is my go to lip balm. I know a lot of people complain about the tingle but I love it. I use it day and night, right before bed. My lips get crazy dry and this is the only thing that really makes them feel alive again.

Carmex keeps my lips super moisturized plus it is cheap and definitely worth it! super easy to apply and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. I love Carmex! I always have some in my purse and car, I will always recommend to friends and family that need chapstick.

If your a person that lives up north, knows this is a must have everywhere you go. Easy to apply I use a small tip brush to apply instead of my fingers. This product keeps your lips moist from those cold and breezy days

So gross. Texture feels awful. It smells like medicine. Tastes like chemicals. I feel like a snot nosed 4 ur old when wearing it because it spreads across your face after a few hours. Clearly, I do not recommend this product.

Carmex is a great option for severely chapped lips. I live in California by the beach but go to school in the Mountains in Arizona where it’s cold, so the climate change effects my lips and carmex is a great option for me and anyone else having these issues!
