How would I describe Carmex Original Lip Balm? It's not like Vaseline, a lip gloss, or waxy like Chapstick – instead, it's slightly "melty."
– Pro: It can be worn alone or over other lip products.
– Con: It gets pretty soft if kept in your pocket.
Other formats include a squeeze tube version and a round metal container. I've tried the squeeze version:
– Pros: 1) It can stay in your pocket or a hot car for hours just fine. 2) It has a slightly more pronounced cool menthol feel, which is refreshing.
– Cons: 1) You need to clean off the applicator after each use, 2) When the product is almost gone, there's still a fair amount of balm remaining that can be tough to extract.
My preference? The stick version. 4 stars.
