I found Carmex about two years ago when I decided to buy a pot of it just to try it out - I had been searching for the perfect lip balm for ages and hab been reading good reviews about Carmex! I bought mine for 3 euros (I was living in Ireland) at that time. First of all I love the scent of it, it is something I don't know how to describe - like a mixed medicine+vanilla. Second I love how healing and moisturizing it is. I use it as an over-night treatment for my lips, I just put on a thick layer of it and wipe off any extra in the morning. It leaves my lips moisturized and fuller looking. I use just a basic chapstick during the day under lip gloss and lipstick but you could use Carmex as well. Carmex comes in 3 different packaging (jar, tube and chapstick). I prefer to use the tube or chapstick because I have long nails - the effect is the same anyway :) Carmex is also sold in many other flavours like Vanilla, Mint, Cherry, Strawberry and Green Apple. However, all the flavoured ones except Vanilla sting my lips VERY badly so just try one flavour at a time, don't buy all of them so you won't lose money if you get the same irritating reaction!

Great lip balm. Leaves lips soft.
Works as well as lanolin/wool fat, but does better with cold sores.

I loooove carmex i bought it last night because the night before my lips were so irritated and sore it hurt ! That day that was happening i bought blistex the whole day i was using it it wasnt working for me it moisturerized but didn't heal so i went out again later on that night cause i couldn't take it anymore i went out bought the healing jar got home immediately washed my hands and put a thick layer and went to sleep next morning woke up and my lips felt soooo much better it burned when i first put it on but it was so worth the $1.35 i will always repurchase this product but what i loved was if you dab it off you still feel your lips moist and feeling good .Thank you carmex <3

I will always rave about Carmex products but they are soo good!! In winter, this is a product kept on my bedside table with my hand cream and ill apply it every morning and night for amazing results. It is more expensive than your bog standard Vaseline, but it works a lot more than it so try it!!

When my lips are really parched and chapped, this is the best stuff. It heals them in a day. Nothing I have ever used works this fast. It's a life saver during cold/flu season because, when I get sick, my lips tend to get cracked and painful. I have tried the original pot (cute but sometimes inconvenient), sticks in original, strawberry, lime, and vanilla, and the original and cherry in squeeze tube form. The cherry is disgusting, but I like all the other flavors. I always have a Carmex lip balm just in case. Also, its super cheap!

Just finished my first pot/jar and I love it!! Does the job, keeps my lips moisturized and it heals chapped lips swiftly. Amazing, will definitely purchase this again. In fact I've stocked up on this but in Cherry flavour, giving that a go.

I really love this for cold sores. I tend to get them every few months as red sores. I use this heavily at night and the next morning I wake up and my cold sores are smaller. Much smaller. One thing that is negative is the scent. It is really weird, but tolerable. I also like I can get this at Target for 99 cents.

I'm a makeup snob. I've tried just about every pricey lip balm out there, and then a bunch of all natural stuff (shea butter, coconut oil...etc.). I know that this stuff is full of supposed skin irritants and the tub is unsanitary... whatever. This is the ONLY thing that would help my lips when they recently became extemely dry, cracking and peeling, out of nowhere. Plus, it made a HUGE difference in just one day. My lips were smooth as can be after 2. Oh and it cost me a whole 99 cents.

I bought this in Strawberry to put in my blazer when at school as it smelt so lovely and felt refreshing :D
It's a steal at just a couple of pounds so I have since bought a couple more as they as so moisturising! The tube version is much better than the tub version in my opinion, just as there are no fingers involved in application, which is good :)
I would definitely buy again!

I love these tubes. Not so much the jars tho. This is perfect for nighttime lip moisturizer and also to put on just before applying makeup. I got this tip from Lisa Eldrige -- apply lip balm before applying your makeup in the morning. When you are done, use a Qtip to wipe off the lip balm (this removes the balm, while exfoliating your lips, too!) and your lips will be perfectly prepped for your lip product.
