  • "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

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.

Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Tube there are and work wonderfully. I personally love them, my husband, kids, and even my dad are their favorite lip balm. It leaves your lips moisturize and soft. I recommend it.

Carmex is not the best. I have found that the more I wear carmex products on my lips, the more I am in dire need of them. Do not recommend.

I don't really like Carmex. It has so much hype around it so I tried it and was very let down. My lips were still dry n cracked and the formula is very thick and goopy.

Not a fan of the scent or formula. Burns my lips and doesn’t help them to heal. Don’t like dilping my finger in a pot either.

Carmex is AWFUL for your lips! It's formulated to dry your lips out so you want to use it more often.
It smells good if you like the minty/chemically smell. And it feels good upon application, but that quickly passes.
I do not recommend this brand of lip product at all!

I personally don't like this stuff. I will only use as a last resort. It feels thick and waxy and has a horrible taste!

I hate carmex I always feel like my lips are more dried out then when I started. The whole point of chapstick is to moisturize this does not do it!
