As a cuticle and scab treatment. Really. Many reviewers are saying the dead skin just wipes off of their lips when using this. This is because it has emollients like lanolin and cocoa butter, and...

I do love this and so does my boyfriend. It is not my holy grail however. Bite beauty Lip Mask is my HG ???????? But I love the convenience of the squeeze tube. I love the tingle, the flavor, and...

I've been using Carmex on and off, mostly off, since I was a kid. I always hated the scent and how it tastes like soap when it got in my mouth. As an adult if my lips are peeling and peeling and...

I am 69 and for most of my life my lips behaved and responded to a night or two of Vaseline when needed. During the last two years all that changed. My lips cracked bled shedded and for a few...

This balm didn't do anything for my lips. Why in the world does it have salicylic acid in it?

This is the squeeze tube version of the Carmex in the pot. I prefer this squeeze tube since the tingling is not as strong, I do not have to use my finger to apply, and the temporary relief lasts...

My holy grail lip treatment. I have learned that just because of the bland packaging, does not make it a bad product! My lips are no longer chapped and are moisturized from this product and it's so...

I love this product!! This is the only lip balm I have ever finished and will be repurchasing it again. It keeps my lips moisturized and I love the cooling sensation on the lips.

Carmex does nothing for me. I apply it at bedtime and wake up still with dry, chapped lips.

I resisted trying this old stand-by for years because I mistakenly thought it was just for use to avoid fever blisters and not a moisture balm. Saw it at the dollar store and what a wonderful...

I like it but I like Blistex better. I also have "my favorite lip balm" by biglowe which I prefer over this but this is comparable and cheaper. It does give bit of a tingling sensation which some...

I've used Carmex ever since I was a little girl, because it's what my parents used on me. It's cheap, effective, and lasting. On the coldest and windiest of days, I can always rely on this to keep...

My HG lip balm. I almost always have dryness/flaky/peeling lips. The thought of using a gloss/stain/lipstick without this just gives me anxiety. First, I love the squeeze tube packaging. My mother...

I've stayed away from Carmex because I don't care for the medicinal smell, I even passed on their 75% off marked down (new) body cream because of this. This works wonders, really got rid of my...
