Used to love, but now I think I'm allergic to this. I get a reaction when I bought this recently. So unfortunately I can't use.

I tried this and i just can’t take the medicated flavor. I’m sure it moisturizes well but just can’t get past the taste and smell on my lips.

I've heard so many good things about this that I decided to try it, finally.

First impressions were great, I like the scent with that bit of vanilla. Also went on so smooth and nice, I really liked it.

The next morning my lips were super dry though and kept peeling really bad :/ bummer. It took a few days with a different lip balm to get my lips moisturized and in shape again. I wonder what is in this that didn't agree with me? Maybe the salicylic acid? Phenol? No clue.

Back to the store it goes.

This kind also breaks my lips out as well and make them peel. Its really disappointing when the brand you love turns into the brand you hate

It’s very Oily. Needs to be reapplied often. Feels okay while it’s on but dries up fast. Not a very nice smell to it but it is medicated. Slight burning sensation to be expected especially if you have chapped lips or small tears.

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.

Not a fan of Carmex I will use it if I have no other choice but not my go too! My lips always feel worse after using it! It can be bought just about anywhere but I wouldn’t recommend wasting money.

I don't love the jar. It was a purcjase on sale, but I was grossed out by sticking my fingger in the jar to my lips.
