This is one of my favourite lipbalms - yes, the menthol is a little counter productive, but cocoa butter moisturizes, petrolatum holds in moisture, and salicylic acid exfoliate dry skin, so it is very effective and well worth the tiny amount of money it costs. I use this mainly at night, and then Neutrogena Norwegian Formula during the day, because it's extremely moisturizing, but less aggressive than Carmex, not to mention almost flavour- and tasteless.

I love this in the stick version for easy application, and I have the one with Mint flavour - it tastes and smells SO much better than the original flavour. So if you love it but hate the smell, I suggest you find the mint version.

this stuff is the worst for your lips: it Over exfoliates so you feel you have to keep applying. Had something like this problem with Lancome lipstick, too. It has those kind of additives.

I don't know if this product works at all, because the second I put it on my lips, I start gagging from the smell and have to take it off. It's in the top ten most disgusting things I've ever smelled, that's for sure.

I would repurchase, yet rarely ever use. I like it better than regular chapstick. But the menthol in it is counterproductive by taking away any chance of it moisturizing your lips well. I much prefer bonne bell. (P.S I hate tube applicators).

This is the only lip balm that I've ever used that actually heals. With all the others, they're just there for scent and flavour but they don't actually do anything. With Carmex I notice a change in the texture of my lips. It heals them after I've been biting them too much, and makes them really really soft. Smells terrible, tastes bad too, but it works. I have jars and tubes all over the house, and in all my bags. And the best part is that it only costs between $1-$2. This is the best lip product out there, and I would recommend it to everyone.

I. LOVE. THIS. I put this on after I exfoliate my lips with sugar and honey and a toothbrush. Makes your lips feel unbelievably soft! This is great for winter, very cheap, and no re-applying!
I recommend this to everyone with chapped lips and to people who just need a lip balm for everyday uses.

Really moisturizing, goes on smooth. It kinda tingles on my lips and I like that hehe. It tastes kinda bad but thats okay with me. I like this better than Chapstick because I find that chapstick takes forever to go on for me and I have to keep reapplying it constantly. I also used Blistex for a long time and I liked those over chapstick too but I like Carmex over them all. Its really great for the winter and its so cheap. I would buy this again (:

I have used Carmex's a great treatment for your lips. I only use this at night before I go to sleep. In the morning, any dry skin I had the night before is gone. I prefer the tube because I hate using my fingers. It's not the best smelling lipbalm but it really does work wonders for dry lips.

This is the best chapstick/cold sore cream in the world. I've been using it for years and have gone through over ten jars of this. It's great for especially winter, when dry and cracked lips are seasonal. I like to put it on before I go to bed and in the morning. If a spot right below your nose is in pain and red from a runny nose, put some on and it'll feel so much better. Definitely continuing to buy it forever. It makes my lips so soft and hydrated. And only $1!
