  • "CarMex has been a lifesaver for me since I started getting cold sores. I usually will use CarMex daily and I can tell it helps reduce the chances of getting a cold sore and the healing time." in 823 reviews
  • "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

Awesome lip balm, but the tube works better for me. I keep long nails, so digging in the little container isn’t ideal. But still an awesome product!

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 love this product for just throwing it in your bag, on a cold day for chapped lips, so small and easy to take with you where ever you may be going!

Don’t get me wrong, it does it’s job! But i don’t like that it gets under your fingernails a lot of the time. But other than that, it’s pretty good.

It works fast but once you stop using it your lips peel so bad! It's really cheap only a dollar so it's really cheap. They kinda hard to keep up with

This is my night time go-to, I can not go to sleep without it. One application before I get in bed and my lips are hydrated and soft all night long.

This is heavy duty stuff that I don't need to constantly re apply! Working in a hospital with dry air would kill my lips of it wasn't for this stuff!

This is my absolute favorite balm. Smell can be sharp but nothing helps my lips recover quite like this product. Easy to store in a purse or pocket!

This is the only lip balm I use. It moisturizers my lips in the dryest of winter and the hottest of summer. I am loyal to this lip balm. It also helps my boyfriend when he gets cold sores! I recommend this product to everyone!! Get it, you won't regret it!!!!!!
