A must-bring-anywhere product, this cult-fave lippie comes in an adorable pocket-sized jar designed with its iconic yellow cap.

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.

Dupe for Rosebud Salve

Love the fact that this lasts forever. Helps whenever I'm on a flight and my lips feel dry because of the recycled air in airplanes. If you're a frequent traveller you can use this as a subsitute for rosebud salve

Dry and chapped lips no more!

I have suffered from dry and chapped lips all my life and thus lip balms and lip moisturizers are my lifesavers. And one of my HG products is Carmex, of course! With its active ingredients and medication, it effectively addresses my dry lips, leaving it moisturized and plump! I use this at night before I go to bed and when I wake up the next day, my lips aren't as dry and chapped at all, even after sleeping in an airconditioned room which tends to dry my lips even more. My lips are lipstick ready all day, every day thanks to the magic that is Carmex balm!

This is the only product that saved my intensely dry and cracked lips! One thick layer of this every night and every morning ensures that my akin stays soft, supple and flake-free. The minty cool feeling on the lips is a bonus too. I will never look at another lip moisturizing product again.

Completely healed my dry and cracked lips

I was looking for a lip balm that could heal my cracked and dry lips (a negative reaction to another lip balm) and Carmex worked to immediate effect! Within a few uses, my lips were smoother, softer, the rough and thick skin sloughed away. Best of all it doesn't feel thick and gunky on your mouth - just smooth and pleasant. I will never use another lip balm!

I love Carmex

Carmex is my all-time favorite lip balm. It's very moisturizing, and keeps my super dry lips at bay. I bought the jar because the click stick wasn't available. What I like about the jar is that it has more product in it, and you can easily use every last bit of product in it. However, the biggest con to having it in jar form is that it's not very hygienic. It's hard to use on the go because you have to make sure your hands are clean, otherwise, you'll contaminate the whole jar.

Great for chapped lips

I use this twice a day to soothe my very dry lips. Before discovering this, my lips used to be so dry and chapped all the time. Now, my lips feel super soft and smooth! I even use this before applying liquid lipstick to protect my lips from overdrying. I'm almost done with my first tub and I will definitely buy again.
