  • "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

Classic lip chap. Forever trusted brand. I'll never switch. Moisturizer my lips so I don't have to keep reapplying

This is a tad oily and thick. So don't put a lot on. It hydrates well. Inexpensive and can be found mostly anywhere

Carmex brand doesn't smell good but works awesome it doesn't taste good so it prevents you from licking your lips.

Works effectively, but has unpleasant odor. I wouldn't recommend. If you need something for cold sores, try Abreva.

I just find this better than the tube of Carmex because the container is hard so it’s easy just to throw in my bag

I liked these a lot, it was fun trying all of the new flavors. Anytime you make a new flavor I will probably try it
