Grew up using this. It worked when I was younger. As I got older things changed. Switched to eos. It works better for me now

I love Carmex to soothe a cold sore but I don't find it effective in stopping them or particularly healing for chapped lips.

This works wonders if your getting a cold sore. I wouldnt use my finger, try a cutip in the jar than apply to cold sore only.

I use to have to use this all the time when I was younger. It definitely helped ease and alleviate the symptoms of cold sores

This is the original! It is very moisturizing but I often am concerned about bacteria build-up, given that it comes in a jar.

Good for healing chapped lips especially in the winter time. Also helps prevent wind burn. The medication may sting a little.

Carmex is a great chapstick brand. I love that it literally feels like it is hydrating your lips and leaves a glossy finish.
