Carmex lip products are good. They help really chapped lips. But because of price and flavor they are not my favorite or first choice for chapstick.

I use this more in the winter months to help keep my lips from chapping. I like the fact that you get to control the amount you put on from the jar.

I always used this in middle and high school when my lips were chapped. It was great always worked. Although in my opinion it's not great for sharing

Good product. I have been using this stuff for years! It is still my go-to when my lips get severely chapped during the cold winter months. Love it!

Carmel For-Cold-Sores is effective when I do have a cold sore/fever blister. It targets the problem area right away and in no time, it is healed. :-)

I like this balm because it really helps my lips to heal and to moisturize it. I use it in very severe chapped lips and works like a charm every time

Great chap stick, especially for the winter when your lips are really dry. I definitely recommend and it is long lasting. I will keep using for sure!

I purchase this product for a cold sore and was not impressed. I’ve used for basic lip moisturizer and found it to work fine. I purchased at Walmart.

This product is a bang for your buck and is a great product to use. Overall the burning sensation from putting the product on is somewhat satisfying.
