This is a MUST for me in the fall and winters when my lips get chapped.  I live in Wisconsin, and our winters can get REALLY cold, so my lips always seem to be chapped.  I pick this up at Walgreens or Walmart every season and it lasts a long time!  When I was younger I HATED the smell, (it's strong) but now I smell it and it just reminds me of sledding, playing in the snow, etc.   This carmex is so but better than any other chapstick, and when I see people using differnet brands of chapstick and then complaining about chapped lips, I always say buy CARMEX!!!

I use this on the creases of my son's mouth through the winter. He's forever getting chapped lips from the dry air, and keeping a young boy inside through snow days is not an option lol. This stuff is thick enough to keep his irritated skin sealed away from the harsh cold when we sled :-).. add to that how cheap it is, how accessible it is, and the fact that it lasts forever (I'm talking we go through ALMOST a tub all winter long and when I say I use it religiously on my kid, I mean like everyday he's outside playing ) you really can't go wrong..however I don't recommend it as a daily balm, too heavy for my comfort, but I'm super picky about textures on my lips lol, and it's jmo.. stay blessed and happy sledding this winter!

Expect to share anytime you have carmex! I can't pull it out without someone asking me to use some. I got it from a local drug store, it was easy to open and easy to use. I buy them every time I'm running low. It does burn a little if you have a sore because it is medicated. But it's awesome if you live in a cold winter state.

It has a very nice smell to it almost like cotton candy so you dont really have to worry about a weird smell. It’s not heavy in the lips but comes of easily. For it’s purpouse it does a nice Job and the price is really good and affordable.
