The tube sucks because it melts too easily in the Australian summer, but the jar is perfect. It doesn't taste good but it goes on well and your lips look amazing and feel great too! Go for it!

Finally got this today as I've heard many great things about Carmex from friends and beauty bloggers. I got the regular one in the squeeze tube - it was a bit less than $4 CDN, but that's cause I got it at the pharmacy where health and beauty products often tend to be overpriced. I haven't spotted it at a Wal-Mart or Target yet but I'm sure it would probably only be a couple of bucks.

The first thing I noticed about it as I was putting it on was the smell - honestly it wasn't too pleasant at first, I actually cringed a bit when I got a whiff of it. But it's something I could probably get used to. I like the applicator and the way it applies the product to my lips. It feels quite cool at the beginning, even leaves a tingling feeling for the first few minutes.
There's also a good amount of shine that comes with it, but it doesn't waxy and gross. It makes my dry, slightly chapped lips look healthy.

I've only tried a few other lip balms such as Nivea, Blistex, and Burt's Bees, but so far this is my favourite. It doesn't feel heavy on my lips like the others, which actually makes me want to lick my lips a lot less. Will probably end up buying this again!

I bought this yestersday at target, and I absouetly love it. It may not be the best packaging but it works like a charm, it made my dry lips so soft, and moisturized.

I used to use this every night. My lips were still dry even using a lot of it. Stopped using it and realized it was causing my lips to be dry.

Love this balm. I have used numerous lip balms and while they look nice and smell good none moisturize my lips which is the very reason I'm using balm. Carmex moistures every time. It leaves my lips moist for about an hour, and I work in a dry office and I talk my entire 8 hr shift. Nothing works like this the closest I can get is with Chapstick and I get more product with Carmex and I spend the same price. I just went to Walmart and bought a 3 pack of Carmex for 2.97. Less then 1.00 a pot and it lasts me 3 months. Love, love, love this. Will continue to buy forever

I got this in the tube form (second picture after the first one shown in the jar, the one with the red cap) for 99 cents at Wal-Mart. It is so moisturizing that it kicks Alaska's cold, dry winter's ass. The tube makes it sanitary but oddly enough I left it out in the car overnight and when I went to put it back on my lips I had to squeeze the tube so hard because the tube itself became really cold and hard, almost like it froze solid, product inside included. When I used a bit of force the balm came out perfect and moisturized same as when it's kept at a warm temp.

Update 5/4/14 : I recently got this in the little pot packaging as a single & I find that this one cools my lips while the tube product isn't cooling at all. Both are still great but I prefer the pot because their product is a lot more cooling & it actually gives a nice gloss to my lips.

20 years ago my lips had an allergic reaction (not sure what caused it) and I got little, super itchy bumps all over my lips that I couldn't even use lip balms. It was winter and my lips were so dry and itchy I didn't know what to do. A couple months later I was telling my coworker what's going on and she told me to get Carmex. It stopped the itching right a way and a week later my lips were healed! I've been using it since. I've tried other lip balms, lip gloss, etc, but I always come back to Carmex. I do prefer the jar packaging more than the tube, but either way, I can honestly say I can't live without Carmex!

I have extremely chapped lips in the winter and this is the only lip balm that helps with it! Super moisturizing and I love the tingly feeling when you put it on! I usually put it on before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my lips are smooth! I also put it on underneath my lipstick, and later on in the day when I re-apply! I love how smooth my lips feel! I've repurchased this product and will continue to do so!

Handsdown the best lip balm ever! When plumping lip treatments were all the craze, I steered clear of anything with menthol in it because at the time I had severely dry lips and menthol just irritated them even more. I used Maybelline Baby Lips religiously for two years before deciding I needed my lip balm to do more than just look and smell nice. I went back to the old and faithful Carmex after a makeup artist used it on my lips as a primer. It's very comfortable on my lips and is not stickly. Definitely a cheapy and goodie!

I have this in the tube version which I like much better than the pot (more hygenic). I can't stand the smell of this stuff but I love what a lil miracle balm it is! Works great on dry chapped lips in the winter time...but also my savior when it comes to eczema. I've suffered from eczema ever since I was a baby. Thankfully I've out grown it on my face and everywhere else but my thumbs. I still have pretty bad eczema on both thumbs. They are dry, itchy and peel. (gross I know). I've tried so many things! Even products that are especially for eczema (which can be pricey), but nothing helped! Then along came CARMEX!!! I slather on a good amount before bed and when I wake up in the morning, my thumbs are so much better! After just one application, i noticed a huge difference! This is inexpensive as well. I will definitely keep repurchasing!
