I love Carmex always been a huge fan of the product, it really works on dried chapped lips. It also does wonders for lip sores. I use and have used the product for a long time now on me as well as my children. I was even more pleased with the product when it was put into tube chapstick form. If there was ever a complaint from me about carmex it was the little jar, that you had to use your fingers to apply. Yes, it worked but gee who likes to get get sticky chapstick on there fingers? Also, that l jar would get lost in the bottom of my purse and would attract ever little dirt particle right to it's rim. So, I give Carmex Original stick to big thumbs up. It's easy, it's clean and it works just the same. The stick still has the same comforting texture and smell. It soothes and heals just as it always has. The price is the no more  for the stick than it was for the little jar, and just as easy to find in your local stores.

I like this for everyday use. But when it comes to really dry lips I think it doesn't really do its job but make my lips more chap by the way it dries up on my dried lips. I like the spf15 and I think a lot of products these days sould carry it. I don't like the strong scent but sometimes I like the little tingly feeling that it gives my mouth. Im not sure if I like the way the product feels on my skin and sometimes I can taste it and it tastes like protoleum jelly. I like it better than the squeese tube bottle because I think they have been using a cheaper plastic for the tube and it all breaks in half. This has happened to me like 4 times when I try to squeese it out on cold days when its really stiff. So I prefer this packaging much better, I think I just need to go on a hunt for a product to help my lips when its really really dry. Overall I use this at times and sometimes I use other products. I like to switch around.

Carmex

By 

from Sneads Ferry, NC

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

Carmex original lip balm is a classic for a very good reason! I first tried this lip balm honestly because I was very attracted to the bright old school look of the red and yellow package and it was very well priced! I like how this lip balm doesn't have much scent because my lips are right under my nose and too many smells can be overwhelming. I like how smooth and glossy this lip balm is. It makes my lips very soft and kissable and prevents my lips from getting chapped even in the cold winter months. Carmex lip balm does not feel heavy or sticky on my lips and it doesn't clump up like some lip balms do. I really enjoy using Carmex lip balm, it looks so whimsical and like it's from another time, I have had many friends ask me about it. Overall I really like how classic and retro Carmex lip balm looks and it really works as well to keep my lips soft and smooth like two clouds sitting under my nose!

This isn't as good as it seems

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

I use Carmex all of the time so I thought the original stick would be Easier to carry around. I had it in my pocket and the warmth of my body caused it to melt. When I tried to twist it up it was just mush. It didn't last long because it melted so i had to buy a new one. I found that the tube is easier to carry around and I don't have to worry about the solid stick melting in my pocket.

Carmex Stick

By 

from USA

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

This is pretty much your same old Carmex from the jar, just it's in a very convenient stick now. I'm so glad they upgraded because I felt the jars were very unsanitary. I like the stick because it's so convenient, easy to hold, easy to use and apply, and it's easier for kids. I still love the Carmex frangrance and will probably always love it. I love how this product makes my liips feel! It gets rid of my chapped lips very easily and I use it pretty much year round. I use it most frequently in the winter time, though. I would recommend this for anyone, and it might just be my favorite Carmex product out there.

Carmex is my favorite

By 

from Erlanger, KY

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

I started using Carmex years ago when I was younger in the little cans, but now the sticks they have are soo much better. In those little cans you had to always get your finger in them and that is spreading germs, and if your nails get jsut a little long then you will get Carmex under your nails and that is never fun. So, this stick of Carmex is AWESOME!! I use this everyday to keep my lips moisturied, When I reach in my purse looking for chapstick I always hope I pull out the Carmex and not something else. It seems like the other brands do not work as well, they do not feel as though you have anything on or you have to keep putting it on. I have been hearing a comercial on tv about chapstick where they person has a stick everywhere car, purse, room etc. I feel that way about Carmex I have it in my purse so I can use it whenever i need, I even find my boyfriend using it too, and on my night stand to use right before bed. I can not got o tsleep with dry lips it is weird I know but oh well. Carmex is the best and I think the only lip balm I want to use.

Carmex Original Lip Balm

By 

from Bennington, VT

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

The Carmex Original Stick is by far my favorite lip balm. I have tried many different types of lip balm, but none compare to the Carmex brand. When using other lip balms they always seem too waxy, thick, slimey or wet. They also do not hold a candle to the Original when it comes to dry or chapped lips. They certainly do not 'heal' the way that the Carmex brand does.

Ther are a few different varities of Carmex lip balm. The secnts I have seen before are cherry and strawberry. I have tried them both and they work just as well as the original, but cherry is my favorite of the two. Carmex also comes in squeeze tubes and canisters. The stick is my favorite version because I do not have to use my fingers to put it on. The stick version is pretty mess-free, except when it is exposed to excessive heat (like being left in a car) and it becomes warm and stickey. This is normal for any lip balm and it resolidifies quickly enough when taken away from the heat.

One of the reasons I love Carmex is that it seems to heal the skin on my lips when they are minorly cut, dry or chapped. This is why I use it more often than any other brand.

Works wonderfully!

By 

from Boone, NC

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

I love this! It is soothing, conditioning, and healing. And...it isn't goopy like the carmex in the squeeze tube. This is really great for what I like to do. I love putting on a chapstick before my lipstick, so the color doesn't emphasize the lines in my lips, and this chapstick has the perfect almost waxy feel to it and doesn't wear off easily. Thank you for this product!!!

Carmex prevents and heals dry,chapped lips!

By 

from Powell, TN

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

We all know winter weather and the dry heat we use during the winter can cause us to have dry, chapped lips that's where Carmex comes in and saves the day...haha! Carmex not only will heal already dry, chapped lips but will also help prevent it. Every winter I have trouble with my lips chapping and sometimes they will even bust open which can be very painful so I will apply a layer of Carmex at night before I go to bed and by morning they will feel so much better! The only negative thing I can think of to mention about this product is that if your lips are even a little bit chapped or irritated this product will sting when applied to them. My 8 year old daughter makes me blow cold air on her lips if she puts it on when her's are chapped. I would recommend this product to anyone, male or female, it doesn't have a feminine or masculine scent so it's great for either one. It is easy to toss in your purse or stick in your pocket so that you can easily access it to apply it as needed.It is also **very **inexpensive so anyone can afford to use it. I feel it is an all around great chapstick!

Great! Saves my lips!

By 

from North Charleston, SC

Comments about Carmex Original Stick:

I love this product.  When i apply a chapstick I like for it to make me sigh with relief--like it is really doing its job.  This chapstick does just that.  It has some tingly ingredient in it that is very soothing immediately when you put it on.  Plus, the texture is very thick and creamy so you can get a thick layer on your lips for when it is extra cold out side or when they are very chapped.  I like that because some chapsticks, no matter how hard you press, just dont seem to apply a thick enough layer and I hate that!  This brand is very mousturizing and makes your lips feel soothed and helalthy.  The smell of the chapstick is also very nice and menthol-ish.  I like that.  I use this in the winter a lot and i find that it is one of the better brands.  it glides on smooth without having to apply a bunch of pressure and it lasts a long time. Plus, it is not very expensive which I like a lot.
