Carmex is my MVP of the handbag
Can’t leave the house without it, it soothes and moisturises. Hubby has one for his car and one at work. Love that it has sun protection in it too! Particularly love the sugar plum flavour, and pineapple mint is just delicious
expected a lot from this product, brand has been around for years
This lip balm is phenomenal. I have very dry and flaky lips and this product has helped me in dealing with that. It soothes my lips just fine and the product having no color is another plus point for me.
Purchased in April 2020.
This Is Horrible
Carmex is so bad
Has glass all throughout the product
Filled with chemicals making you reapply it every 2 minutes
Drys out your lips if you do not reapply within 10 minutes
This is not moisturizing at all
This product dries out your lips within 3 seconds
Effective lip balm
I had severe dry, flaky skin on my upper lip and despite using medicated lip balm very frequently, it would just not go away. I went to the chemist and they recommended a tube of Carmex. I got the original one and the smell kind of reminds me of Blistex. I feel a tingling but relieving sensation when I apply it. I've been using it constantly and generously since I got it, and my lips are very slowly improving. I hope it will eventually clear up my dry lip.
Great under lipsticks
Reasons I love this little pot of lip balm.
1. Easy to use.
2. Not too thin or greasy. It doesn't spread outside the lip line.
3. Colourless. You can wear it under lip tints or lipsticks.
4. Wear this under your lipstick during the winter months and your lips will remain moisturised and soft.
Not very moisturising. Needs to be reapplied every 3-4 hours.
Not So Good Anymore
I have been using Carmex for more than 40 years since I was a child. I am not sure what is going on at the manufacture but I am finding that this product is really going down hill. When I go to the store I see that the jar lids are dented or screwed on crooked. The tubes have sharp edges and are mix up. I purchased a plain Carmex tube and there was cherry in it. Yuck.
I have waited and waited for mint to come back. Today I found a wintermint stick. It was terrible and the mint lasted about 20 seconds and then gone. I also noticed that many ...of the sticks in the box at the store had twisted labels on them. I think if the outside packaging is messed up can you imagine what might be inside. The quality control just is poor. Sorry Carmex leaving your brand. 2015
Out of all the lipbalms I've ever used, Carmex is the best, hands down. It used to have older packaging where it said it was good for cold sores, well this stuff can even prevent them from appearing I've found. If your lips are cracked and dry, this stuff heals within one day. My hubby uses it religiously, my daughter cannot be without it, and everytime I buy some for myself, another family member snags it for themselves because it's so wonderful. When you put it on, you can feel your lips tingle, they feel great and they start to feel softer. My daughter gets bleeding lips in winter and this stuff saves her.
It can stop cold sores as well as chapped lips.
