I have been a Carmex user for over twenty years ~ I started out with the pot containers and graduated to the tube. Now, they have a stick and this lip balm is heaven! I am a lip balm junkie because I take medication that makes my lips dry all of the time. I discovered this product and it's better than all of the rest. Yes, I mean Burt's Bees, Chapstick, etc.

It has a slight Strawberry taste which is not long lasting. It glides on your lips and it provides a tingly sensation. I love this lip balm. I ordered the mint too and I cannot wait to try it. I will definitely buy this product again ~ I am hooked...

I would say that this product is okay at best. It definitely has a nice strawberry smell, but it does NOT have a nice strawberry taste. If you accidentally lick your lips you get a kinda funky taste in your mouth. This is probably due to the SPF so it may be unavoidable in any chapstick w/ SPF (this is the first chapstick I've tried with SPF so i'm not sure).

I only use this when I'm going to be out in the sun a long time. When I do use it, it works, but I wouldn't use this every day. Usually my dislike of the taste outweighs the usefulness of it.

I also find that this chapstick makes my lips tingle. I have found that some other chapsticks (but not all) do that to me as well, so it may be because I have dry/sensitive skin. While other chapsticks only tingle for a minute or so, this one seems to tingle longer.

Comments about Carmex Everyday Protecting Lip Balm Stick SPF 15, Strawberry, .15 oz:

I have been using Carmex since I was a child, and I totally agree that the stick is the easiest/best form to use. I like the strawberry flavor. The only bad thing I will say about it is that if you get any in your mouth it will leave an unpleasant taste/sensation in your mouth. I still use it everyday, though.

      Comments about Carmex Everyday Protecting Lip Balm Stick SPF 15, Strawberry, .15 oz:

      Maybe it's me, but every time I use this, my lips seem to actually get drier and I need to use more and more of it. I'm going back to good old Vaseline on my lips at night... the best chapped lips solution I've found yet.

        With other Chapsticks I was constantly reapplying but I don't have to with Carmex.
        It feels smooth on my lips and it lasts a long time. Buy it you won't be disappointed.

          This is the only lip balm that actually helps my lips when they are chapped. Lasts a surprisingly long time, but it comes off when you eat/drink.

I just ordered two more, and cherry and mint.

              Comments about Carmex Everyday Protecting Lip Balm Stick SPF 15, Strawberry, .15 oz:

              I have been a Carmex user for over 25+ years. A long time ago, you could only buy it in the tub. Strawberry is my favorite and Cherry runs a close second. I like the balm stick, because they are so much easier to use and much more sanitary.

              I keep the Strawberry lip balms in various places all over my house. I never want to be without it or have chapped lips. This is a great product ~ please do not discontinue it or mess with the formula. I am going to try the mint next.

                Great that Carmex - the best lip balm on the planet,IMHO - comes in a stick.No lip product ever lasts long enough,but that's just about rubbing lips together,drinking coffee & water all day,etc. Just never keep this stick anywhere it will get too warm,including pants pockets,because it's very soft and will get runny.Be vigilant about checking kids' pockets too if they use this,because God help you if this ends up in the dryer!
