Good but petroleum jelly is better
This is product is good for convenience and it does the trick, however it is not the best product for your lips. Petroleum jelly last longer and is more moisturizing, for me at least. Carmex does work and is easy to carry around and apply through out the day. I use it all of the time. However, petroleum jelly is better to put on while your are at home.
carmex..love or hate?
Personally Im in love with this product..it heals my chapped lips fast...I put it on each night before I go to bed and every morning when i get up I apply it and go about my morning routine and my lips are moisturized great by the time im ready to apply my lip stick or gloss...so for me the answer is LOVE IT..and I already repurchase it all of the time..my opinion is that it does do everything that they claim in the ads..its great for me..I recommend that you give it a try..and its very affordable..also its available in different flavors,in tubes stick or jars..for me I get the tube and its the original flavoring..and a wonderful side note...NOT ANIMAL TESTED !!!
I probably have like 50 different tubes of Carmex scattered throughout my house, my room, various bags, the car, and in the most random places. I love Carmex. I always hear how bad it is for you, and how it's just a film over your lips, and how it doesn't really do anything.
I just love how it moisturizes. There's this slight burn that I also really love. I feel like my lips are healing because they no longer crack and become chapped. I love this for the winter.
Perfect Lip Balm EVER!
I have used carmex since i started wearing makeup. It's always kept my lips in near perfect condition. It's moisturizing... you know what it does pretty much everything. lol I have a tube of carmex in my car, one in my room, one in my purse, and one at my grandparents house. lol i think i also have an extra one in my bathroom. I always put on carmex before i put on lipstick or a gloss and the carmex fills in the cracks of my lips, and even the chapped areas if i have any. Makes my lips look pretty much perfect. :)
I think a lot of people forget that Carmex is really good for cold sores and extremely dry lips. I'm not going to waste $20 on a high end product that claims to soften my lips and moisturize them when I can pay at most $2 on a tube of Carmex that will moisturize my lips and give me that refreshed feeling after wards, and it will be handy for those embarrassing cold sores.
The best of the best!
I use Carmex products every day! The lip moisturizers are the best-- no frills, just complete healing. There is a distinct tingling sensation when you use the balm in the squeeze tube, but it is a good feeling. I prefer the stick just for ease of use, but all of the products work just as well. Additionally, I like the smell. Some people don't, but it doesn't linger so it isn't too big an issue.
The ONLY chapstick I use!!!
I have VERY sensitive lips! Most chapstick make my lips peel, swell, and itch...extremely uncomfortable! I LOVE carmex! I have one in all of my purses, my backpack, my nightstand, my car, and with all my make-up. I take one EVERYWHERE i go! The cooling sensation feels great when my lips are chapped or sunburnt. It kind of has a weird smell..but it totally worth it. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!
If your gonna do it, do it right!
I would rather have moisturizers that smelled bad and not pretty or oldskool, than spend a bunch on stuff that smells like flowers and fruit that works halfway and makes you smell good for a few minutes. This stuff doesn't smell pretty or have a pretty package, but damn does this stuff work awesome. I'll buy it forever. Its a good burn :)
Repurchase For Life!
I have been using this product religiously since I first purchased it, which was anyone's guess how long ago. I use it everyday and I barely use any other lip product now. On of my most favourite things about this product is that it's product description offered by Carmex is absolutely on cue, it does everything that the company says it does, which definitely results in me raving about it to anyone who catches me putting it on whenever I have a spare moment. Even boys I know how have gotten sunburnt or chapped lips I forced them to put this stuff on and they were much happier chaps. Now a jar in their footy and gym bags.
This is an average lip balm. I mean, there are better lip balms out there like philosophy's lip balm but I mean you can wear this under your lipstick/gloss. Wearing it alone, it dries out very fast meaning it wears way quickly. It doesn't stay on your lips very long, but while it's on your lips it does moisturize.
