This is my all time favourite lip balm - it is SO moisturising and feels luxurious on the lips. I love the slimline packaging and the very subtle vanillary scent of the lip balm - I always get compliments when I pull it out of my pocket! The only thing I'm not particularly fond of is the amount of shine it has as I prefer much more matte looking lips, however this is easily solved by running my finger along my lips to gte rid of excess shine.

One of my favourites!!
This lip balm is so great. Not only does it instantly relieve dry lips, it actually helps nourish them long term as well. I dislike lip balms that just cover your chapped lips and then an hour later your lips are as chapped as ever. It doesn't feel sticky at all and doesn't have a weird taste. I also like how slim it is and easy to slip into a small bag or makeup pouch

Really liked this lip balm
I find this lip balm to be really nice and light to wear, but moisturising at the same time. It has a soft pleasant scent and applies quite smoothly, leaving a really pretty gloss/sheen over your lips. I like wearing it just on it's own for a nude look. I also really like the sleek tube it comes in.

Loving this one
I love this lip balm. The wind up stick is fantastic and it is so easy to use. It provides superior moisturisation and you don't have to use your fingers, which to me, is a huge plus factor, My lips are left soft, supple and smooth. Love the spf 15 too, great too over your lipstick for added sun protection, shine and hydration.

Lovely , wonderful lip balm
I got my other carmex click stick and this carmex at the same fete. I got mine for $3.5 and i can say it feels like a million dollars. my lips are so dry in winter and autumn and other lip balms just dry itmy lips all out. But htese don't i can feel a notable difference and also it tastes great, so lip balms make me feel ill with their after taste, but i havent had any of that with any carmex products, so I definitely will be repurchasing :)

Slim, Stylish and Soft
I never leave home without a lip balm! I've heard many good things about Carmex and happy to try this product.
I love the compact slim-line design and it certainly doesn't look like a lip balm - more like a lipstick with it's stylish outer case.
Easy to open and better still, it closes securely. Nothing worse than the lid coming off in your handbag and finding the end covered in 'stuff'!
I found it to be a very soft balm, which is wonderful in the cold weather as it goes on easily. Not sure how it goes in the hotter months as summer is behind us.
Goes on in a thin layer and not at all sticky or tacky, making it ideal to apply a lip colour over the top.
I love that it has a SPF of 15 as not many lip balms contain an SPF.
Found it hydrating, although in the windy weather needed to be reapplying it. Find it suitable for everyday wear, but would probably choose to use a more 'heavy duty' balm for chapped lips or cold windy days.
I did Love it and happy with the Clear variety that's not coloured or fragranced.

As I'm getting older I'm noticing my lips are getting drier. This products is the first thing I use in the morning and the last thing I use at night (and throughout the day). I love how nourishing it is with the added bonus of SPF. The only con is it doesn't last long!!

I really like this lip balm, I've almost finished my second tube.
I find this lip balm to be quite nourishing and hydrating, the slim lined almost neutrally packaged stick houses a clear balm, which has a slight minty/menthol scent about it.
The formulation leaves a slight gloss like shine to your lips.
My lips have been a bit dry and this product has really helped overcome that.
I also like that it contains SPF also.
Overall a great lip balm which performs well.

Carmex have it in the bag when it comes to lip moisturisers. I have really dry lips, especially through the colder months, this is when my lips will crack, chafe and the skin will literally peel away. I had this problem this Winter and bought myself this Carmex lip balm, my lips haven't stopped thanking me. I love the packaging and the applicator tip. I love the balm, it is so thick and hydrating. It repaired my lips and kept them hydrated throughout the remainder of Winter. I felt a slight tingling sensation every time I applied it but this died down quick. It took about a week for the skin to stop peeling from my lips but after that cleared up, they got better so quickly.
I found I went through the tube really fast as I was applying whenever I needed it - so around 6-8 times a day. I could see it shrinking.
I would definitely keep purchasing as it works.

If there is one product I can't live without, it's the lip balm. Nothing drives me crazier than not having moisturized lips. For years, I've tried almost every single brand of lip balm (the ones in the twist up tubes, pots, squeeze tubes…)
- smooth, buttery, slick texture. goes right on and instantly makes lips feel soft - sleek and pretty silver packaging – much nicer than other lip balm packaging
- works great over/under lipstick
- at $8.99 for only 2g of product, it's pretty pricey
- it melts easily, so be sure to keep it in a cool place
- since there is only 2 grams of the product, it's easy to go through a tube fast, especially if you apply constantly throughout the day like I do.
Overall, it's an awesome product. If you have dry lips and are always on the hunt for lip balms, I'd recommend giving this product a try!!
