I really recommend you do your research before buying this. Carmex is a product that is very popular, and all the people I know who use it are constantly re-applying it... There's a reason for that. When I first used this product I wanted a little moisture on my lips before going to sleep, when I woke up my lips had never been more dry before. The corners of my lips were stinging and cracked and it took me some good old Burt's Bees to help me out. The reason for this is because Carmex includes some dangerous chemicals, such as Camphor, which ideally dries out your skin. Why? So you will continue to use the product to keep 'moisturising' your lips, however this is inevitably destroying them. I seriously recommend trying out products with less chemicals and more natural ingredients, Carmex might be good for your purse but it isn't good for your lips.

I have been using this for 3years now! My favourite lip balm and 1 pot will last over a year. It doesn’t sit heavily or make your lips ‘gunky’ like some balms can do, and my lips don’t become ‘immune’ to it. I just wish they did this version on a stick: in a tube!

100% the best lipbalm ever! My lips get so dry and chapped all year round, especially autumn/winter time and this lip balm helps so much. It moisturises my lips and prevents further drying for hours. The texture is thick and smooth and you can really feel the moisturising goodness in it. I couldn't recommend it more.

looking through the reviews i see there was only one review that was low. This may work for some but for me it just didnt help at all in fact it made my lips even more chapped. I brought it as i know some of my friends swear by it but for me it just wasnt any good.

It's the best resolution to chapped lips and it's also cheap it's long lasting and prevents you from having chapped lips for 6+ hours which is great in season change between summer and autumn and Autumn to winter.

This is a little pot of magic for your lips! Perfect for dry, chapped lips and a complete life saver during the change of seasons! The only bug bear I have is the pot - if you have nails, I can guarantee that it'll get under there!

I use this product everyday i have one in ever room in my house and probably at least three in my bag. I get bad chapped lips at winter and this product saves my life ever year. I put it on ever morning and just before i go to bed and it keeps my lips moist and it feels amazing. bonus it also smells great.

Not much to say about this product. It wins every time. Nothing looks after my lips like carmex. It's great to prep lips for lipstick too. Or to go over the top. Best of all worn alone, it leaves a lovely non sticky shine.

I swear by this stuff. It is genuinely the best on the market. A little goes along way and it's not even that expensive. Different flavours too if you aren't keen on the taste. Absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend, only thing is getting used to the taste. It's not bad just different.

I always have dry lips and this works wonders! I often use this under liquid lipsticks so they don't dry out my lips as much. I find it even plumps my lips which is odd but a great bonus! Doesn't taste bad like other lip balms I've used.
