I love this, I go through a tub every month and half, I use it at night and it stay on till morning. Whenever I have especially dry lips, it is the first thing I reach for. Smells good too with Vanilla and menthol.

I absolutely love this product! I have been using it since I first discovered it some 5-7 years ago. I buy it at Target for something around .88 cents as well. I like the "pot" which I feel is creamier than the "tube" which I think goes on too thin. I don't experience any drying effect at all. The smell took some getting used to at first, but then after a while I love everything about it and totally swear by it. I once bought a similar lip balm from Long's Drug Store in L.A. which was about 2 times the size of Carmex's pot, but didn't really like it that much. It's the same idea of formula, however a friend of mine who I gave it to - really loves it - so if you are looking for similar stuff but cheaper and for about the same effect but want to change products - look for the Long's lip balm if you are in Southern California. I would buy Carmex pots as long as they are on sale - I believe in them that much.

This is a great lip balm that I'd recommend using in the morning and evening. Maybe use a gentler one for applications during the day. It comes in a cute yellow pot and I really like the smell- cross between vanilla and Vicks. When you apply it it tingles and within hours lips are softer and flake free. There are so many lip balms out there that just don't work but IMHO this isn't one of them. I haven't found it drying at all. Also, from what I can gather, it's animal friendly- a big plus for me. And sooooo cheap! P.S> I reckon it plumps the lips too but that might be my imagination!

This is wonderful for really dry, cracked lips...I like it in the winter when my lips are really chapped, as far as the scent goes it smells medicated but nothing bad...like I said I don't use this just to use it I only use it if my lips are in really bad condition...it works

For me Carmex was totally drying. It's for cold sores so it's supposed to dry them out. My lips have been burning and cracking for the last 2 days. I wouldn't ever use this product again.

I love the retro look, but don't use this regularly... it's drying. I don't believe it's addictive though.

I use carmex everynight before bed and it leaves my lips sooo soft and flake free. Also, it leaves your lips with a cool tingle..this is a keeper. The price tag is great as well 1.29 for a good size pot.

After reading reviews on this stuff, I went out and bought two pots for myself. At Walmart, they were 88 cents each! I keep one in my purse, and one at home. I apply it three times daily, and it works great! My lips look like a model's. I have tried everything for my always chapped lips, and this is the only thing that works. I love the tingle you get when you first apply it, and the smell isn't bad either. This is my HG!

This is by far the best lip balm I have ever used, and I have used lots! This is the first lip balm that I don't feel my lips have become 'addicted' to. It has a lovely texture and a great little tingle when first applied. I will never use another brand again.

Smelled bad and felt dry.

After using Prada lip balm for a long time, I heard good things about Carmex and wanted to give it a try. This is IMO, the best lip balm on the market. It has kept my lips chapped free, has a thick like texture which I love, and it's just an all around perfect product, plus you can't beat the price. This will be the ONLY lip balm I'll wear after having used so many different ones-why keep looking when this is so wonderful?

There are many myths out there about Carmex, but for me, it just works. I don't think it's addictive or that it contains bits of glass or anything else I've heard. True, if you overuse it and put it on every hour, it may start to dry out your lips because of the salicylic acid, which helps peel dead skin. But I have chronically chapped lips and have tried everything on the market- even the most expensive balms, and this is my HG. My lips are healthier than they''ve ever been with anything else- even in the very dry winter months.

Okay, this is my HG of lip treatments! I won't touch anything else. I just slather some on my lips before bed, and when I wake up, and wash my face, off comes all kinds of dead skin. Before I used this, I had constantly dry, flaky lips that would crack and bleed, but now, my lips are soft and smooth. I don't use this during the day, because of the smell, but I don't need to because it does such an awesome job at night.

this stuff is great! this was reccommended to me as a healing balm to use on my newly pierced bottom lip. i was surprised that it was extrememly comfortable and creamy. it was also lightweight and moisturizing. i have this in the squeezie tube and the little pot - i prefer the tube (sanitary reasons). it has a slight medicinal scent to it, but i actually find it comforting and it fades quickly anyhow. i'm glad i got the opportunity to be introduced to this product...i've always overlooked it b/c it seemed boring and lame. highly reccommend.

This is the best lip balm I've used. It's cheap, does it's job, and is widely available. I love the tingling feeling when I put this stuff on.

I love Carmex, but if there were any one lip balm to support the lipbalm-addiction theory, it would be Carmex. But still, what a classic. I love the smell (for nostolgic reasons).
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I buy this in the pot and rub on my lips all winter - it contains some mint and salicylic acid and has a strong smell that doesn't bother me (I dont' wear it out, only around the house, etc). It is the only treatment that has helped me with cold sores, chapped lips, you name it. Only $.99 at Walmart - this stuff is wonderful!

What can I say, I just love Carmex. I try to stay away from the stuff as I do believe it is addictive but it feels sooo nice on, and im a sucker for the vanilla menthol plastic smell! I always hear these myths with these tingly menthol balms- that they really dry out your lips, but I think this helps alot so untill I see it, I dont believe it. Its cheap, it works, its something you can depend on, but highly addictive...decide for yourself.

A staple of mine for years. In any form (stick-plain with spf 15, with mint and spf 30, and plain in pot or tube) this product has never failed to instantly heal and provide comfort for my lips when they need intense care! Needless to say, I love it.

This really is softening as long as you're not applying it 100 times a day. I use it first thing in the morning and I don't have any problems with my lips (or lipstick or gloss) flaking or turning white. If I need a balm during the day, which I always do, I just use Burt's Bees. The smell of Carmex is disturbing and gross, like a medicated version of Bag Balm or something. I like the tingly feeling on my lips, my lips are soo healthy looking with this added to my routine. It has salicylic acid in it so you DON'T want to be applying this compulsively because it WILL dry your lips out if you do. Use sparingly (and maybe with your nose plugged!) and it will work wonders!
