“Lubricate your kisser!”

ConsYou might not like the cooling tingle. Or the smel...

A few months back I thought I had a serious vitamin deficiency; my lips were severely chapped and the corners of my mouth were very red and sore and starting to crack - I was too scared to smile incase my face split open. I then realised that the change was down to the building managers turning...

“Easy Squeezy!”

published 21/11/2008

ProTingly sensation, it works on sore, dry lips.

ConsUnpleasant taste.

Generally speaking, I am not one to suffer from cold sores or sore lips and usually y every day lip-gloss does the job to keep them in condition. However, since the cold weather suddenly set in this year my lips have been an absolute nightmare. Over the past few weeks my lips have been sore...

ConsNothing, I love this balm

***Why I want the product?*** With the colder weather looming over us my lips as always are taking a battering. My lips are dry all year round but obviously more so in the winter months. I have tried what I thought to be great products from a well-known high street brand, which unfortunately did...

Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm Since I was 9 years old my lips have always been dry & they chap & split really easily, also most of the time I bite my lips with my teeth during the night then I wake up with blood stained pillowcases & blood stained teeth, along with very sore lips. If something...

Carmex lip balm is something of a black sheep in today’s world of sumptuous, lavishly packaged, beautiful smelling beauty products. I seem to have a recollection that Carmex was originally only available in America, but these days it sits innocently amongst the lipsalves and lip treatments in...

I have this condition (that I diagnosed myself with I hasten to add!) whereby my lips are constantly dry and I'm forever applying some kind of lip balm/lip gloss in order to put my mind at ease as licking my lips only ever seems to make it worse! I have numerous lip balms and lip treatments lying...

ProCheap, effective

ConsFor some the medicated smell

I'm sure like me many of you have heard the old wives tale that the more you apply lip salve the more delicate the skin on your lips become and ultimately the more and more lip salve you will need. Somehow, like many old wives tales, I'm sure that this one too is true, but does that stop me...

ProAmazingly moisturising and soothing

Conscan be a bit addictive

I first tried carmex when I was six! My dad brought a few pots home from america and my whole family started using it!! Unfortunately though, we of course ran out! I was in Boots a while ago and saw the familiar yellow and white pot and so I bought about 6 tubs! This is the best lip balm Ive ever...

ProExtremely hydrating, pleasant tingly sensation.

ConsSmells medicated, old-fashioned packaging.

I decided to buy this after trying some of my friend's Carmex (this was in a squeezy tube form though, not a pot like I bought). I had never heard of it before, but decided to buy my own as it was just so moisturing. I often had a problem with dry lips, possibly due to weather conditions and...

“Hope in a little yellow pot”

published 23/06/2002

ProFantastic at its job, cheap

ConsMaybe a bit too waxy for some

Carmex lip balm seems to be a fantasticly well kept secret of the beauty industry. Its cheap, in the handbags of loads of celebrities (apparently), and a brilliant product for dry chapped lips. Carmex is sold in a little yellow and white metal and plastic pot, containing 7.5g of this miracle...

Lips, that is...! I first discovered Carmex last year when I popped into Charles Fox in Covent Garden. Charles Fox is perhaps the best known name in theatrical makeup, and I was refreshing my stock of makeup when I saw this bright yellow and white pot on the counter. It was part of a small...

ConsPackaging can look a bit like super glue!

Well, ever since being a child I have always suffered with dry and chapped lips just like most people -that was until I found this. This is the only lip balm I'll use from now as it really does it work and I cannot get enough of it! Like you I have tried all sorts of brands to try and get my lips...

“Carmex Lip Balm”

published 11/07/2008

Proheals sore lips

Consnot available in Czech rep. so I have to import

Carmex Lip Balm I have started to use Carmex lipbalm on a friend's recommendation and I was surprised to see and feel how well it worked! I've always suffered of dried and cracky lips particularly in winter and even if I always was equipped with lip balms and spent quite some money on it as I...

ConsIs it addictive?

Marmite, you either love it or you hate it! One could ask what Carmex has to do with Marmite and one would be fully justified in doing so. After all, Marmite, for all its sticky gooiness would not be terribly suitable for use as a lip balm (visions of black and white minstrels spring to mind) and...

Consmenthol could irritate sensitive skin

Carmex Lip Balm contains ingredients such as menthol, camphor and beeswax to leave a tingling sensation, soothe and smooth lips that need a bit of tlc. It's priced at £2.69 for a 10g tube. My thoughts I'm not a big fan of the packaging, it's very bright and garish, but that does make it easy to...
