  • "I swear I'm addicted to the smell of Original Carmex. This lip balm is my jam during those cold, dry winter months! Great protection from the elements. " in 4260 reviews
  • "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 809 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

Carmex in a tub like this is very convenient to use when sharing with others. It mostierizes, protects, and heals just as they say it does. Carmex wears well about half of the day, but because it absorbs into lips so well, I'd recommend reapplying.

Let's just face it if it's not broken don't fix it another well strategic marketing genius who has them right at the registers so any and ever drug store you went to cherrys the main. But just try finding the pink lemonade and banana I can't remember if my local drug store it was  CARMEX or another brand.. this is the very best other then 18 abbreva ( severe sores) luckily CARMEX works every time.. if it don't I think ya may want to see a doctor something tells me it's a bit more then CARMEX CAN TREAT

wasn't what i expect to be. when you first apply it on my lips it goes on really smooth and nice but after a while i noticed even though the formula is amazing but it didn't help hydrate my lips . i wouldn't recommend this product to others.

This is my to go to when my lips are dry. It works fast and I personally don’t like the squeeze ones. They are too messy for my taste. I think these last longer too. It might just be me though lol definitely buy this item in the summer and winter

I like this alright I like CarMax brand products and keep your lips moisturized as long as it's just any other brand of lip balm I just don't like having to dip my finger into a pot and apply it to my lips that's my only problem with this product

The best thing about carmex is the tingling sensation. There after the product is very drying to my mouth. If you don't have an issue with dry and cracking lips this product will work just fine. If the issue is the ladder, I wouldn't recommend it

I bought this from one of my local walgreens. I had lost my burt bees chapstick and was in a rush to get something quickly so I stopped by the walgreens before heading out for my road trip. It's one of the cheapest, but most effective lip moisturizers out there. Better than most much expensive brands! I would definitely recommend this to others for dry lips on a regular basis and even cold sores. I have bought this in the past for cold sores in MI winters and is my go-to for that as well.

I used to used Carmex all the time. I was obsessed with it. Until I learned they put glass in the mix. It makes small cuts on your lips to keep you coming back. Whether they fixed it or not, I wouldn’t risk it. It’s a shame. I loved it so much.

I would consider this the most healing of the mainstream lip products. I always have some on hand. It is alway on my night stand. A very good product to use at night and sleep with on the lips. Lips are in better condition the next day for sure.

I love to put this on before bed or before I start my makeup to prepare for liquid or matte lipsticks. Medicated smell that isn’t great but I’m very use to it. I don’t like using this when my lips are really dry because it can make my lips peel.
