Carmex Lip Balm Jar - Review

Product type: lip balm
Brand: Carmex
Product name: Classic Carmex, moisturising lip balm (jar)
Price: 17,50 hrk (on sale this week in Muller (Croatia) for 11 hrk)
Rating: 100/100
Recommendation: Once you go Carmex, you don't go back. If you like trying out many different lip balms, you should stay away from Carmex, because after you try it, no other lip care product will ever be good enough.

This lip balm is long-lasting, it protects my lips in the cold and in the wind, and makes them smooth. It leaves a thin layer, but that is all you need to protect your lips and moisturize them. I've already mentioned Carmex (stick) in a POST, but this time I bought the one in a jar. I carry the stick with me everywhere I go, and I use the jar at home.  Since I've met Carmex my lips are no longer dry and they're always in perfect condition. I heard about Carmex before, but only recently found it in croatian stores (Muller). Carmex is supposedly very good for cold sores, but because I've never had those, I can't say if it works or not. 
About the tingling sensation that you feel when you apply it (I got used to it, and don't feel it any more), I found this explanation on their website
''Why does Carmex tingle when you put it on?
Two natural ingredients—camphor and menthol—give Carmex a cooling effect and help relieve the irritation of rough, chapped lips.''

And here is my new stick. When I recently got the flu, even though I had a house full of lip care products from other brands, none of them were good enough, so I (with a fever) went to the store to pick this one up - that's how good they are.
Have you finally tried Carmex? What are your thoughts?

  1. nisam probala, otkako sam probala sierra bees, ne kupujem druge balzame ;)

  2. Najdraži balzam za usne <3 Najdraži mi je bio onaj u tubici, a njega više nigdje nema za kupit :(

    1. tog nisam niti probala, a vidjela sam da ima s okusom trešnje, to bi bilo savršeno za mene.

  3. Very promising:) I've heard some good things, but weirdly never bought it. Maybe I'll rethink it, when I use up all the others:)

  4. Cramex i Himalaya herbals s kokosovim maslacem su definitivno najbolji balzami IKAD. imam preko 30 komada raznim balzama doma i nijedan ne valja kao ovi. Blistex mi je totalno smeće npr.

  5. svakako ide u kosaricu pri sljedecem posjetu mulleru :D

  6. Carmex is such a well known and loved product here in our country. Great review!

  7. Carmex is such a well known and loved product here in our country, great review!

    1. Whenever I hear someone talking about another lip product, and claiming that it's the best, i just think to myself ''you haven't tried carmex''
