I have heard so many good comments are reviews of this 'carmex moisturizing lip balm' and have wanted to buy a pot for a while, I recently purchased my own after hearing all these rants and positive comments.

The packaging, I really like the pakaging it's simple in a pot a handy, some i know do not like it but hey! it's a pot at the end of the day. The bottom of the pot is a hard white plastic and the lid a mustard yellow tin which again i like it's easy to open and store. - 4/5

I brought my carmex pot from my local supermarket for 3.37 GBP which to me is very expensive with only 7.5g but i wanted to give it a chance however i do know that there are many other expensive ones other than this. 2/5

Overall the first time i used this there was a slight tingling and unpleasant feeling on my lips which i did not like however once applied after a few times it's fine. also another off putting thing for me was the medicated smell I cant bring myself to try and explain the smell all i can say is that it smells very much like the blistex pot, which i did not like (smell wise).

I like the feeling of this after a few uses and it does the job, i wouldn't say it treats my lips but the while its on yes! they are hydrated. however i wanted more of a treat for my lips.. which is why i only gave it a 3/5 and i would not buy this again.

I think this is literally harmful, addictive and drying to lips. I'm addicted to lip balm anyway, but not like when I used this.

I use carmex right before i go to sleep. when i wake up in the morning my lips feel so soft. I also like to use this under my lipsticks because it really moisturizes my lips. but you have to let the product soak into your lips before putting lipstick on.

I love this lipbalm.! My whole family has these lying around the house. They are really moisturizing, I apply this to my lips every night before I go to bed and the next morning, they're so soft! HG worthy in my opinion....(;

Really like this stuff. As a kid thought the jar smelled bad and was greasey. Now with a milder scent and in a tube it is great. Chapstick, Burt's Bees, Petroleum jelly, none moisturized my lips for more than a few hours and were red and chapped later. Only dislike is scent. Otherwise good product.

I used Blistex (blue tub) with my firt course of accutane. It worked ok but I had to reapply at least every 10minutes. On my second course of accutane I tried Carmex (yellow tub) and I must say it is the best one I have used! If you are on accutane, pls try the tub! There is also a squeeze tube lip treatment from Carmex which I think is awful & useless. Note though, if you are not on accutane, any lip treatment would work.

I really like this lip product. I have dry chapped lips all the time, summer or winter, its just my skin that's dry all over. It relieves, calms and soothes dry itch lips. The feeling of it on the lips is very similar to blistex daily conditioning balm, but I like this better because my lips stay moisturized without having to reapply. It really the lips moisturized throughout the night better then Vaseline. I have noticed less chapping on my lips after a week of use. It doesn't have spf so during the day its best to use an spf lip product then this on top. But on the other hand, I like the fact it doesn't have spf since you don't need it at night or when your not outside. Another downside is on the packaging it says not to apply this product more than 4 times a day. No idea why, and would like to know and hope there isn't a major alarming reason. I do stick to what it says and alternate with a another lip balm. I love the squeeze tube packaging, I feel it is more sanitary than the jar one. However, I have seen this product so many times but hesitant to buy it because the colours are hideous! The colour combo reminds me of a bottle of toxic chemical spray or something. Overall, it's a great lip product for dry lips and at very cheap price.

I know this contains a lot of bad stuff ( petrolatum, mineral oil etc.)
however, I love Carmex. And since it hasn't affected my lips in a bad way yet, I'm going to keep loving it.

It keeps my lips nice and soft. I apply this in the morning and it keeps my lips from drying out until nighttime and then I apply it again after I've brushed my teeth.
That's it!

Though if you think your skin is sensitive to any of the bad ingredients, I'd stay away as my sister tried Carmex as well and it left her with red/dry patches.

I used to hate this stuff, but I just bought it again and I love it.
I like the smell, and it feels nice on and makes my lips feel nice once its gone too.

I LOVE this. It keeps my lips beautifully smooth and in amazing condition. I will never use anything else as a lip treatment, this is finally the perfect product.

The only thing I'm unsure about is how shiney it is on the lips. It kinda looks a little lip-glossy and I'm not a lip gloss girl.

I don't really want to buy the tub again though, I don't like putting my finger in it. I'll stick with tubes.

Bottom line: amazing product.
