“My new lip essential!”

published 13/06/2008

ProLovely smell, works brilliantly!

ConsDull packaging may put you off at first glance.

Recently I realised I was finally running out of my favourite lip balm, so I thought it was time to invest in a new one. A while ago a friend introduced me to the squeezy tube version of this product, and I loved it, however at the time I assumed (wrongly) by the packaging that she'd found it as...

The Product I first bought this when I was in Boots looking for something to repair my lips when they were dry and chapped a couple of years ago. I found Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm for £2.69 and, despite trying others regularly, I always land back to the original Carmex Lip Balm Pot. The...

ConsThe little ridge under the lid.

There is something about Carmex that never fails to bring back memories of the summer of 2005 which was the first year that I started to use it. I will always remember the lovely summer and the holidays that I had to various places in France where Carmex was always a regular in my holiday bag and...

ProExtremely effective and does what it promises!

ConsNone for me!

- My Experience – I have always suffered from dry and chapped lips during cold weather but basic Vaseline has always seemed to fend off the rather unappealing chapped and even crusty look with about 4 small but very sore cold sores. However during the extreme weather conditions up here in the...

Despite its popularity and having heard plenty of reviews for the stuff, I've only more recently tried Carmex lip balm. As a semi-addicted Vaseline user, I'm far more accustomed to softer lip balms or those in a stick format that are easy to apply, so I've found Carmex to be a little on the hard...

“Carmex Lip Balm.”

published 12/02/2014

ProSooths your lips, excellent quality.

ConsNone

Recently my Mum gave a pot of Carmex Lip Balm that she didn't want, its a brand that I have heard of but not one that I have ever tried. Lip balm is something that I tend to use more in the winter months during the cold weather so I was keen to give this one a try and see if it lives up to my...

Probrilliant lip balm - probably the best there is

Consexpensive in the uk compared to the US

I love Carmex lip balm, I've been using it for absolutely years and years now, and I always stock up on it when we go on holiday to the US. Carmex is a fraction of the cost over there, compared to the extortionate prices they charge here. Carmex lip balms are $1.39 normally in the US, I bought...

ProIt works and is great value

ConsNot fun like other lip balms

I love the winter except for what it does to my hair and skin and in particular my lips. I have always used lip balm and quite often it wasn't cheap stuff either and although they worked beautifully during the other 3 seasons of the year as soon as it turned a bit frosty out there my lips cracked...

My Opinion I first came across this lip balm when my Dad brought it back from Iraq having finished an operational tour in which he was attached to the Americans. He had this huge rucksack full of all these non-British goodies, and the Carmex was the first thing that I spotted. I put it on there...

“Carmex - wonder balm!”

published 29/08/2007

Pro+ Helps to soothe chapped lips, Value for money

Cons- Its effects lessen over time

It soothes, tingles and heals. Does it however live up to its promises? Carmex has been around since the 1930's so something which has been around for such a long time must be good. It comes in a small yellow, black and white pot, nothing special, perhaps rather dated packaging. Not very...

As a schoolgirl I always had a tube/tub of lipbalm in my pocket. Possibly even two. I mean, you never could tell when Rob Smith from year 11 might have suddenly decided that he wanted to take me for a milkshake at McDonalds in the town after school. Well, that never happened. But I did have a...

ProWorks well, convenient to carry

ConsNone for me

As you may already know from my previous reviews I always use lip balm. I just cannot stand the sensation of my lips feeling dry and use the balms all year round to combat the dryness caused by the sun and wind. There are little pots and tubes all over the place here in the cottage - in drawers...

Carmex – Lip Balm Looking after my lips is very important to me as I have always had chapped lips all year round for some reason I am just prone to them, some would say unlucky, I would say a way of life it swings in roundabouts. As I cycle to work everyday my poor lips have to combat the nasty...

“No problems with my lips!”

published 16/12/2007

ProAll of them

ConsNone of them!

INTRO Among all of my other annoying habits, I always bite the skin on my lips when im I'm drunk or incredibly nervous. So as you can imagine, after a heavy Friday and Saturday night, on Monday everyone at work thinks i've been on some sort of weird inhaling drug over the weekend because my lips...

“Carmex”

published 03/05/2007

ProIt works!

ConsSome people find it messy

Have to confess I really have a nasty habit, some people bite their nails, other smoke but when I am stressed I tend to pick at my lips and this gets worse when my lips are already dry because of really hot or cold weather. I have tried all sorts of products, lipbalms and vaseline but...
