Loving Carmex for a few months now and the result on my used to be uber dry lips is amazing! A friend suggested that I try it because she saw how my lips suffered during the summer season. With the heat coupled with getting sick which turned to severe dehydration, it looked like a cracked heel! So, when I got better, fully hydrated, I purchased a Carmex Lip Balm and tried it on one night.

But first, here’s the packaging – small but definitely powerful!

Carmex Lip Balm

The whole family were in Alabang Town Center one day to shop, dine and watch.. nah, it was my birthday, lol. Of course, a celebration was in order, and I also took the chance to shop for my fave products. Went to a fave shop, used to be PCX and luckily found Carmex. It was out of stock the first time I looked for it, guess, it sold out like hot cakes.

Okay, let’s get on with the review. That night, though tired and sleepy, I, of course, tried it on. I can’t sleep one more night and wake up with chapped lips! lol.

Carmex Lip Balm

As with any other product, I did a skin test first. I’m kinda allergic to some things and I don’t wanna go into Anaphylactic shock for not testing products first. It’s just a common practice, and I would like to find out and tell my readers also if it’s safe for those with allergic reactions.

Anyway, here’s my lips BEFORE I applied it:

Here’s the after effect of Carmex Lip Balm on my lips. Note that your lips’ shape may differ from mine hehehehe.

Carmex Lip Balm

Before application:

  • My lips were pale
  • You can see some lines
  • There were traces of white loose skin on the lower lip

After Application:

  • A bit of redness can be seen.
  • Lines disappeared and lips became soft
  • Looked moistened and not dry


  • Carmex looks like it’s oily and greasy but I assure you, it’s not.
  • The colour is transparent once you put it on though you can see in the small can that it’s yellowish.
  • A hint of minty cool freshness can be felt just a few seconds later.
  • I see my lips redden a bit, maybe a reaction from the minty feel but nothing to be alarmed about coz I didn’t feel any sting or itchiness
  • A few minutes more and it seems you are just wearing a lip gloss and with a fully kissable lips!


If you don’t believe it could happen to your lips or you are suffering from dry chapped lips, then try Carmex Lip Balm. I bought mine for only P109.75 or $2.75 (x Php40). The stick version costs the same, so I opted for this. Don’t be deceived by it’s small size. Mine could last for several more months considering I use it 2x a day everyday. Hubby loves to kiss me more often now, lol. If you are a smoker and your lips darkened overtime, this is a must in your pocket!

Planning on giving Carmex as gifts to my girl friends. I just gotta find the time to go back to ATC and purchase some more! I’m sure they’d be thrilled to see the result! Go ahead and try it!

  1. Thanks for that very informative review. I use lip balm religiously, but Carmex is a brand I have not used, I will have to give it a try.

  2. I LOVE Carmex – don’t go to sleep at night without it and my lips are always soft in the morning.

  3. I have seen this before but never tried it. It looks so medicinal to me so I am glad that you liked it and it worked. I will definitely try Carmex now because I have very dry lips!
