The best lip balm ever! Carmex is so, so reliable...it always does its job no matter when you pick it up. There's always a certain comfort level about having such a lifeline around. Such as this morning, I woke up with the driest lips, which was extremely odd as my lips have been so soft recently..but I picked up my carmex and they were back to perfect in a minute (no idea how I managed this so early, at 5am, in bed). I don't use Carmex all the time. I own a lot of other lip balms and I've found these to be way better to use very regularly, but I'm ALWAYS glad to have one around!
