    I've used this product for 15 years or more. I've tried lots of alternatives, from other lip balms to expensive lipsticks. Carmex Original stays on my lips and softens them longer and better than anything else.

    For me, this is especially important since I press my lips against dry paper countless times a day. That's because I smoke. (I'm also extremely disabled with no willpower left over to quit.)

    My point: nonsmokers should benefit even more from Carmex. Try it and see for yourself.

    At first I loved this product, however I was back and forth on if I liked the menthol taste of it. While it can be soothing at times, it makes it a bit messy and sticky for kissable lips. This healed at first, but after a while it felt like it made my already chapped lips worse. I prefer the jar to the tip applicator. This got messy after applying it directly to my lips. I found that I had to pul it on my finger anyway before I put it on my lips just so the applicator wouldn't get all gooey. Bottom line is if you like the menthol thing give it a try. It's inexpensive so it is worth trying.

          This stuff really works. Helps heal cold sores, and helps prevent them from happening too. I use this when my lips are chapped as well and love it.

              My kids tend to get chapped lips in winter, and this has helped them overnight to keep lips moist and recover quickly. Comes off easily though, as most do.

                      I love this product. I said that it has a 'bad taste', but it's not really bad, just kind of waxy. I wouldn't want to kiss anyone right after putting it on, but that's true of just about anything that is applies to the lips! As far as its healing powers, I rate this product as top notch!
