Use daily before bed & when I've brushed my teeth.
The smell is slightly medicinal but the product is great.
It really softens lips. I use the tub false nails makes the tub a devil to get out & means you don't have to get your fingers greasy.

I've used carmex at different points in my life and it has generally always been a bad experience. I recently started using it again because I figured it might somehow help with my cold sore (it says so on the jar that it does actually), but all it has done is dry out my lips and make them flaky. Since I started using it again my lips have chapped and cracked pretty bad (before they were fine minus the cold sore spot). I've also noticed that after some use of it, hours later, it peels off my lips inside membranous skin layer? I'm not sure how to explain it, but I'm left with a whitish, translucent peel of my lips on the inner rimming of my mouth. Definitely not using this product again.

I've used Burt's Bee's Peppermint, Origins, Blistex, Chapstick, an expensive Japanese brand I don't remember the name of and Bur Bee's Pomegranate but nothing compares to Carmex! Unlike other lip balms, my lips are fully hydrated and I don't need to reapply over and over again. The smell of Carmex doesn't bother me either....I understand it's not the most pleasant smell but I actually like that it does the job done of being a WONDERFUL lip balm. I'm usually skeptical that cheap products don't have good qualities but you really get your dollars worth! I bought the Carmex jar in the original flavor for 1.79 and it was buy one get one free! Even if it wasn't on sale I would've still purchased it.
I also heard that once you use Carmex, your lips get addicted to it so that you would have to re-apply it over and over again. Also, I heard that there's salicylic acid so that it makes lips drier. For me, none of that happens. Before using Carmex, my lips were SUPER dry like the Mojave Desert LOL. Now that I use Carmex, my lips are very moisturized and even if I go days without Carmex, my lips are more moisturized than when I had used other lip balms on the same day.
There are tons of lips balms on the market and I have been the type of person who liked to use lip balms which I saw good ratings for (ex. Burts Bee's Peppermint) but the other products don't stand a chance with Carmex. This stuff is truly awesome!

This product is amazing. I've been on Accutane for over 2 weeks & I've been using it daily. I've had tightness in my lips but this has fought all dryness & peeling! It's amazing. Nothing works like this for dry lips. I don't mind the smell; and I love the consistency.

I love this stuff. It will heal any problems your having but it's also great for day-to-day for maintaining moisture and softness.

Back in elementary and middle school-- before my makeup days-- this was my HG lip moisture. But as I grew up and I started growing out my nails longer and every time I would dip my finger into it it would get under my nails. Also, the container got dirty and it would get into the pot. It does moisturize and leave my lips soft. But now I'm into Chapstick.

I used to love Carmex, for a long time it was the only thing I would use on my lips! It would leave my lips soft and smooth and I liked the way it felt when I applied. About 2 months ago I bought a new 3 pack of carmex (i used the original in the stick form, not the pot) and when applied to my lips it tasted awful! I really try not to lick my lips but it happens sometimes! Anyway the awful taste lingered in my mouth forever and I couldn't figure out why :-( I never had that issue before. After a couple of days of this I just couldn't stand it anymore so I looked at the ingredient list and compared it to an old tube that I had, the ingredients have changed; carmex now contains avobenzone where as before it did not...I don't like the new formula and won't be purchasing again unless they change it back! I felt I had to do a review as I have seen several recent reviews for this with people talking about how it make them break out and have allergic reactions and it's gotta be the new formula, hth!!

Just horrible! I have never had a allergic reaction to any product before nor do I have any allergies but after using carmex for only one day, my lips are in a disgusting state. They are all swollen, look burned, dry, flaky and have white bumps all over them. Definitely going to stay away from this product.

Carmex lip balm is the best. I bought this at a Dollar General for $2. I use it every morning before I put on my lipgloss/lipstick, and every night as a bedtime lip treatment. I have very dry and potentially chapped lips and this makes my lips feel and look amazing.
The only downside is the jar (although yes, I know you can buy it in other formats). I generally don't take this in my purse since I hate dipping my finger in it in public. I just find it kind of gross so I leave it at home. I will likely invest in the tube version since I love this and want to take it everywhere!
