Carmex is my favorite lip balm ever. It always feels so soothing on my lips and the scent, which some might find unpleasant, has always been comforting to me. The staying power is great as well. I can apply it at night before bed and still feel the effects in the morning. The only complaint I have is that Carmex can sometimes cause excess exfoliation of your skin and therefore some irritation, but I do know hat I can count on this product when I really need the help.
