It’s no wonder this little beauty has been ranked as the no. 1 recommended lip balm by pharmacists in the U.S. for 14 years straight. Formulated with camphor and menthol to soothe chapped lips and treat cold sores, as well as petrolatum and lanolin to help keep moisture locked into your skin as it heals, Carmex®’s time-tested formula has been relied on by generations as a portable quick fix. Not just for your lips, it can also be applied to dry cuticles, feet, and elbows for hydration in an instant. A must-bring-anywhere product, this cult-fave lippie comes in an adorable pocket-sized jar designed with its iconic yellow cap.

This product contains salicyclic acid and should, therefore, refrain from being used by anyone who is allergic to aspirin.

It was love at first swipe when we put on one of Carmex®’s ultra-moisturizing balms! What started as a homemade remedy for cold sores and chapped lips is now a cult hit and must-have item for professional makeup artists, celebrities, and even athletes such as NBA Superstar Lebron James. The no. 1 most recommended lip balm by pharmacists in the US, Carmex® was born in 1963, when Alfred Woelbing concocted a salve to heal his own cold sores and chapped lips. He decided to put his salve on the market, and through word of mouth, the demand for his product grew so large that he abandoned his stovetop production and finally made his way to build their factory in Wisconsin. Today, Carmex® remains a major competitor in the industry, continuously creating innovative new products for fans and new customers.

very moisturizing & minty

if you're into lip balms that tingle when you apply them, then you will love this! aside from the fact that it is very minty, it actually moisturizes my lips very well. i use this as the first step of my makeup routine so that when i put on my lipstick my lips are already well-prepped

best jar

Always have a jar of this on standby it really helps during the winter months when lips get more chapped from the cold weather. The formula is buttery but doesn't leave a tacky sticky texture. The products does make the lips tingle when applied and this wears off gradually. It has a menthol smell. I've had both the tube and stick version as well which are the same smell and texture just different ways to apply if you don't want to dip into a pot

Why only now?

I was using Chapstick as lip balm for the longest time. Only when I read something about Carmex here that I purchased it. I super love it! Waaay better than Chapstick. My lips become smooth after application and it feels good to apply lipstick afterwards. My lips no longer chap, no dryness in the lips when wearing lipstick. I will definitely repurchase or might as well hoard now.

No crack lips

Goodbye cracked lips. Very moisturizing and hindi nag babalat or nag chachapped yung lips ko. Super affordable and easy to find. Hindi lang sya hygienic kasi nasa pot sya. I think mas hygienic pa rin yung nasa squeeze tube nila na lip balm so I preferred that one pero same effect lang lahat ng carmex packaging lang nag iba.

The Only One That Worked For Me

Seriously, I really really am glad I found Carmex. I have been agonizing my chapped lips for so long. I have tried numerous products but nothing really worked. When I finally tried Carmex, my lips smoothened after a week and I said goodbye to bleeding lips too! I haven't had a single problem since I started using it. Much much appreciation and love.

Carmex balm helps to prevent that while also soothing any pain that may have cropped up. I use this product daily as both a pre-exfoliation moisturizer and as a base for my lip primer. It helps keep my lips soft painless.What I love doing is putting it on my lips before bed heavily and I wake up with very soft lips.
