Great formula. Carmex never seems to fail me with any product. Although, if you dont like stinging sensations, i wouldnt recommend this product to you.

I like Carmen for cold sores, it works very well for the pain of them. I just don't really like it as a chap stick. I don't care to much for the flavor

I dislike this lip balm because it leaves an odd feeling and taste on my lips and I also do not like having to touch the product if I want to apply it.

This is my go-to backup chapstick when I don't have my Blistex available but it still works just as good just not a fan of the scent as much as Blistex

Absolutely love how it makes my lips feel. Now I would love more variety in smell. It doesn't smell bad, but I don't think some fragrance would be bad.
