  • "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

I hate Carmex. It’s too strong, makes your lips feel strange and smells awful. I haven’t used it in many many years because I just can’t stand the feeling or smell. I would not recommend to others.

My mom always carried this in her purse growing up . It works really good for extremely chapped lips or cold sores but I don’t really care for it for everyday use. The smell to me gets kinda obnoxious.

Probably one of the best lip balms as far as performance on the market! Packaging is blah but you know Carmex when you see it an aisle away. It lasts a long time. I definitely recommend this for anyone who has issues with dry lips.

Good consistency, helps to heal chapped lips easily. Not a fan of this contained of lip chap as it is kind of messy/unsanitary. Good value. Little bit goes a long way. Would recommend. Great stuff.

Carmex is alright! You wanna moisture your lips before a liquid stick is amazing! Apply it & tap it against your lips couple times it will plump your lips. But if you want it cause of your lips are dry DONT

This is a really good product, but I don't really like chapstick in a pot like this. I prefer the squeeze tube, but it works just the same and the smell is a little strong but not terrible at all.

This product is pretty much saved my life during the winter time and when I am sick. It always fixes my dry lips and prevents any redness from the wind! I will always trust anything made by Carmex

This is the OG of lip balms! Everyone knows about this brand and if you don't go run to your local drugstore and get one! Price point is crazy cheap but an outstanding product! Great for chapped lips
