I did not like this product at all :( it was nice at first but it needed to be reapplied often and if I didn't wear it, my lips were super chapped.

This is a product I've used my whole life and never have been disappointed with. Feels good putting on, stays on, and moistens the lips very well.

I couldn't live without this stuff in high school. However, there is no reason to use it unless you have a cold will dry your lips out.

I really recommend using this because it erase my cold sore in one day and I was really satisfied with how a small product can leave a big impact.

Not my favorite. A very medicine like smell and also kind of burns my lips a bit. Though it does work in a pinch, this wouldn't be my first choice.

I hate carmex I always feel like my lips are more dried out then when I started. The whole point of chapstick is to moisturize this does not do it!
