I am soooo addicted to Carmex! I have loved this old school lip treatment for so many years! This moisturizes so well, and is one of the few lip balms that actually heals my non-stop dried out lips. I can't stand fruity flavored lip balms, they make me sick after awhile, but the clean minty/menthol scent this has, never bothers me...and I love how it tingles when you put it on! I have the jars, the squeeze tubes (original and cherry), but for some reason, I prefer it in the jar form (maybe because it's thicker???). I have never had a cold sore in my life, so I can't speak to how well it performs for that purpose, but for chapped lips, I highly recommend!

I always strayed away from Carmex I thought it was just cheap and average. I always used high end lip balms. Today I was just cleaning my room and I saw my sister's Carmex and I have been on the lookout for a new lip balm so I decided to try it out figuring it would be terrible but I'm a huge fan of it! It keeps my lips super moisturized all day! I have super dry lips and now my lips are never dry because of Carmex and it's super affordable! I apply alittle bit of Carmex before I apply my lipstick everyday :) LOVE LOVE IT HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

I have used and loved carmex my entire life. I really love the little jar, and I'm one of those people that love the scent. The only negative about this product is that for some reason I seem to have developed an allergy for it. it made my face red and splotchy and my lips puffed up. never before have I had this reaction, perhaps ill put it aside and try again some other time. as for now, I will not be repurchasing.

I use Carmex for when I get coldsores, and this works amazingly. It cools down my coldsore while healing it. Works way better than my $20 abreva.
Using a jar is a little unhygienic, but as long as my fingers are clean, it's fine.

This product is amazing! I've lost count how many times I have brought this product. Makes my lips feel great and really moisturized, I apply it under lipgloss, lipstick or just on its own, it leaves a subtle shine, just what I wanted. Cannot rate this product more highly!

Pretty much the only lip balm that works for me anymore, not sure if this is because I've gotten so used to using it. Read on MUA that it's medicated & peels skin & this make you dependant on it. Would not be surprised.

This thing is greattt!:) This is my go to lip balm for my lips. Unlike other lip balms this really does heal my very dry and chapped lips and make them silky smooth! Also for the price ($1), you just can't beat it!
I got the one that is a squeeze tube. I exfoliate my lips in the shower, apply a thick layer overnight, and I wake up with smooth lips! When it is first applied it is very minty and there is a slight cool feeling. I don't like using this throughout the day since it had a terrible taste and looks really greasy. But still a great product.

I am a lifelong lipbalm SNOB, and this is my HG product. The salicylic acid cuts through dry skin on the surface of really dry lips, which I find other balms sometimes make worse. The smell is a medicinal vanilla melange that's not awesome right before eating or drinking, but totally soothing any other time. I will never be without this product!

I really feel I needed to write a review on this because I feel this causes chapped lips. Initially, when I use this it feels great. However, after it wears off I aways have chapped lips (and I don't have chapped lips in general - I use lip balms to keep my lips moist). Then I read one of the ingredients was salicylic acid which causes the skin to peel. So I stopped using it and no more chapped lips!

I love this product. I always seem to have chapped lips.
This stuff is amazing. I use the one in the squeexy tube applicator instead of the pot.
I keep one in my handbag and I keep one beside my bed at night.

This is the best lip balm I have ever used, and I have tried plenty.

Fantastic lip balm! It moisturizes my lips really well in these cold, dry Canadian winters and generally does a better job than any other lip balm I've tried (and I've tried tons). The smell is nice (a faint vanilla scent) and the taste is a bit weird, but nothing major. I also like the little pot it comes in, although I sometimes wonder how healthy it is to be putting your finger in there all the time.
One thing I noticed though is that there seem to be different formulations of the same "original formula" Carmex. I don't know how to explain it, but I've purchased the same "original formula" several times and gotten different formulations. Some are pots with black writing on them, some have the red Carmex label. And the lip balm inside is thicker in some pots, and thinner and more slippery in others. Not sure why that is...

Ugh, I really don't understand the all the rave reviews for this!
I tried this out (even though I love my Blistex Lip Medex) just to see what the hype was about and I have to say I'm disappointed.
I applied this at night like I would normally do with my other lip balms and woke up with smooth lips. I liked how smooth they were, but my lips felt very odd and uncomfortable and it happens every time I use it! I don't really know how to explain it, but if I don't reapply in the morning, my lips very very irritated and the skin around my lips becomes red and itchy.
I wanted to like it and I tried it multiple times but it's never going to work so I'm tossing it.
UPDATE: Took a look at the ingredients and the only moisturizing ingredient is last on the list. Also, there's salicylic acid in it... the stuff you use to dry out pimples... how can that possibly be good for your lips?!

I bought this product a couple of days ago because we don't get it in my country and I heard good things about it. Oh my god, I want to marry Carmex. It's awesome, it made my lips super soft immediately and I need it in my life forever.

For someone that struggles with dry skin, unfortunately my lips follow suit and get super dry if I don't moisturise them. I've tried blistex, chap stick, sooo many lip balms and none of them seem to do anything other than sit like a heavy oil layer on my lips. Carmex was suggested to me and since I tried it I've never gone back. The camphor and menthol ingredients instantly relieve that tight, dry feeling and help to not only soothe your lips but heal them too. I put this stuff on every night before bed, and can still feel it on my lips when I wake up! The only downside is the pot container which can spread bacteria, so make sure your fingers are clean before you use this product :)

I have severe allergies that lead me to be a sexy mouth breather on frequent occasions. Nothing soothes my dry cracked bleeding lips like Carmex! People say its addictive, but I don't believe the drama. Carmex cuts through the crust and makes me be able to rock any lipstick!

This is the only lip balm that works great whenever my lips are really going through hell. My bottom lip in particular can get really chapped to the point where it will crack and sometimes bleed and gets really painful. Unless I keep my lips slathered in lip balm. This did what Chapstick and a lot of other Lip Balms couldn't do. Completely rescue my lips when they're really chapped. I would have to keep reapplying Chapstick and it never helped. Carmex solves all my problems and its dirt cheap and you can find it anywhere. I always apply before I go to bed.

Because this product was so dirt cheap, and the packaging was not very good, I thought this product would be ineffective. However, this is an amazing product. It leaves your lips feeling soft, and soothed for HOURS.
Some may not like the minty, refreshing feeling you feel on your lips when you first apply it, but I don't mind. For those who like that sheer gloss on their lips, this is the product for you. After a couple of uses, my lips went from being chapped and dry to soft and moisturized. I really, really, really recommend this product if you're looking for a very effective lipbalm.
I definitely would buy this again.
However, a quick warning: it says in the directions to apply no more than 3 or 4 times a day. I whip this baby out when my lips are feeling super dry and chapped, and use my EOS lip balm if my lips are NOT feeling super dry and chapped.

This is the most amazing lip-balm available on the market! It goes beyond being a cosmetic product, it's actually more of a medicine. It can heal dry, chapped lips in just a few applications and stays on for a long time.
It does not make the lips look dry or white, and it actually gives it a light gloss/shine which some people may enjoy.
I recommend putting it on a few hours before drinking hot drinks though as it will melt into the drink!
