Not a fan of this. I bought this thinking it would be better than Blistex but it wasn’t. If anything I felt like my lips become more chapped if that’s even possible. Definitely wouldn’t buy again.

The best. Helps my lips big time and keeps them moister. It also helps in the winter because it stays in my lips for a really long time and I love it completely. Buy it all the time I have several at home

This is a great lip balm for when your lips are really chapped or dry - even sun/wind burnt. It’s found at any Walmart or drug store and has high value for the low price. I highly recommend it to others.

For years now this has been my go to! Cannot live without it. Every night before bed I smooth on my lips and wake up with perfectly hydrated lips ready for my lipstain. You can find a jar in every room in our house, the whole family enjoys it. We are never without our Carmex!

There is something about this balm that keeps me coming back. It has a very menthol feeling which seems to get the job done. I also like That I can use it for my lips or my nose if it is raw from having a cold.

This is my life saver in the winter months. Chapped lips ain't cute, but Carmex saves the day. This product exceeded my expectations. I purchased this product at Walmart. I highly recommend this product.

I like this a lot..especially in the cooler weather because my lips get chapped’s very moisturizing. The only thing I don’t like about this specific one is that you have to use your finger and it can be messy and unsanitary. But besides that this is a really good product.

I enjoy using Carmex since it does the job. I have this one in cherry. My only complaint is that I have to dip my finger in it and it’s especially hard when I’m down to the very bottom of the container.
