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!

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.
