  • "Carmax is great for soothing raw, chapped lips. The rare times that this ends up happening during a freak cold winter down here, I stock up on this stuff and it works like a charm. I only wish I could remember to use it as a preventative as well as a restorative." in 4964 reviews
  • "Carmex works great for chapped and dry lips. It instantly makes my lips feel moisturized and relieves any dry or cracked feeling my lips may have. You don't need much to apply either. It has a menthol smell, which is great if you have a cold or stuffy nose. I have found it helps clear up a stuffy nose. Therefore, I will apply a tad bit right under my nose to help clear it up when I have a cold. It actually works and if your nose is raw and red, it actually relieves that too. It makes it not raw anymore and it won't hurt anymore. Really weird how it does that but it does work. However, if your nose happens to have any sores or is really raw so the skin has cracked, then Carmex will burn/sting when you put it on. It will go away though." in 3547 reviews

Not my favorite. It feels as if my lips need more and more applications when I put this on. I just can’t stand the taste either. It’s very inexpensive and I buy it for my kids which they easy misplace it and they do like it and it does soothe their chapped lips.

There was a time when my lips, no matter what lip care I would used, would remain chapped! Ever since going away to college and discovering the max moisturizing strength of Carmex due to the help of my pals I have never, ever looked back. The affordability is definitely worth the quality of the product! I mean just look at how soft and plump these lips look! Do yourself a favor and stock up on Carmex!!

Carmex lip balm is very moisturizing and I definitely noticed a difference in my lips after a few uses. It is also very inexpensive and easy to apply. However this did NOT meet my expectations it made my lips tingle and sting (not horrible but not good) and it also smelt weird, I personally think it smells like rubber gloves from the dentist. I would recommend Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm way more than Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Tube

It did what it was some times ugh I don't wanna go to the gym and then she said she would be able to get to the bottom of the page and I will be there in a few minutes and I'll be there you up to today and tomorrow and you can get it to me by the end of the day I was in the shower and then she was like yea if you wanna come over and we can go to the store and get some rest and feel better soon and that was the best thing I can think of is that so suprising that I can see if I can get a ride to the airport on the down low and I can see if I can get the money to you and your family are doing well

I like this product for when my lips are just mildly chapped. I have found that when I use it on very dry, cracked lips, it burns and makes them very red and irritated. But on a casual day, this product is great, and I do use it very often, on a daily basis.  Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Original Tube

Carmex definitely helps my lips feel more hydrated. I also like the tube and how it’s easy to squeeze the balm out and you get the perfect amount. I’m not a huge fan of the scent because it reminds me of when I have a cold. I’ve tried lip balms that I like more and that work better, but this one isn’t bad at all.

I used to use this for my lips for years. I always had at least tubes at all times. One in my bag and one in my pants pocket. The only reason I docked a star is because when it gets too warm if you press on the tube, too much product comes out and makes a mess. It’s easy to overuse this product but other than that, before I stopped using this product it was nice because I could apply it and it would look like a nice little lipgloss.

This stuff is classic for a reason.  If you want your li[stick to go on smoothly, treat your lips with Carmex Original the night before and you'll wake up with well-hydrated lips.  That tingle when you put on this stuff is so nostalgic; I live for it!  It's also good for chapped lips on the rest of your family.  Boys won't get bent out of shape if you put it on their puckers for dried lips. ;)

This Carmex is something your home should not go without! I am a repeat user of this product, always by my bedside.  The price is not bad at all, and it lasts a long time, you should always buy more than one so you can place in your purse and have in your coat pocket at all times.
