Carmex Classic Moisturizing Lip Balm

I've recently used up a tube of my Softlips Sweet lip balm, so it was time to open up a new lip balm. I've used Carmex before, but I've never used the one in the pot before. I need a lip balm to moisturize my lips for long periods of time and that's clear, let's see if the Carmex Classic Moisturizing Lip Balm is a winner!

One thing I love about Carmex is the shine factor! Their lip balms give a glossy finish, but they aren't glosses. This balm lasts on my lips through eating and drinking, so I don't need to apply all that often. This balm has that classic Carmex scent, which can sometimes come across a bit "mediciney", but I actually have grown to like it!

When I first apply this balm, my lips get that tingly feeling, but it only lasts a minute or two. I have pretty sensitive lips, and with my seasonal allergies my lips do tend to swell and feel uncomfortable. This lip balm has helped my lips feel more comfortable and moisturized. I highly recommend this lip balm to anyone who has dry, chapped, sensitive, or irritated lips! This lip balm is also great for applying over lipsticks, it moisturizes and adds a bit of a shine.

What are your go to lip balms? :)

Disclosure: This product was sent to me for my honest review.


  1. I have never used Carmex even though I'm very familiar with it. I did get a couple trial size of their Healing Lotion. It smells just like the lip balm.

    1. Ooh I've only ever used their lip products!

  2. We love Carmex! one of our favorites is the Carmex Moisture Plus Hydrating Lip Balm (in the silver tube). It's awesome and we love the smell! :-)
