Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Classic and Cherry

When it comes to lip balms, we girls can never have enough. It’s hard for us girls to imagine our lips without lip balms ;). Carmex lip balms are among the most famous lip balms of world. I have two of these, without which my life is incomplete.

My Experience with Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Classic:

When I got this lip balm for the first time, I didn’t know Carmex lip balms were so famous. Also, since I don’t have extremely dry or chapped lips, I never cared about applying lip balms regularly.

On my first application, I felt a tingling sensation on the lips for 5-10 minutes and then a cooling effect.  It had a soothing effect on my lips, but it didn’t give any color to the lips, its very sheer.  The next morning, I found soft and 100% moisturized lips.  It was the first time that I felt that way about my lips. There was not even a bit of dryness.  I loved this lip balm from that moment. This is my most-used lip balm ever, totally a gem.

Pros of Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Classic:

  • Extremely moisturizng and makes lips very soft.
  • Has only a subtle smell, which is not annoying.
  • It works for chapped lips too, I have seen the effect on others.
  • Not at all sticky.

Cons of Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Classic:

  • It is not easily available in India.
  • It feels a little heavy on the lips.
  • When used under lipsticks, it dramatically reduces the staying power of lipsticks.
  • Petrolatum is the main ingredient , so this lip balm resembles Vaseline, though it’s not a con, I just mentioned it.

Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Cherry:

Product Description:

It soothes, it relieves, it moisturises.


Petrolatum, Lanolin, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Aroma, Benzophenone -3, , Cetyl Esters ,Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter, Cera Alba, Paraffin, Camphor, Menthol, Benzyl Alcohol,Hydroxycitronellal Eugenol, contains Oxybenzone.

My Experience with Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Cherry SPF 15:

It works the same way as the classic version.  This one has SPF 15 which makes it apt to apply during the day time.  The smell of Carmex Cherry is entirely different from the Classic one. It smells and tastes like cherry-flavoured bubble gums and I totally love the smell too.

Both the Carmex lip balms work great, smell and taste good.  Carmex has tube forms also, so can’t complain about the tub packing, but I heard that these ones in the tub works better than the tube forms.

Carmex Cherry Lip Balm

Pros of Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Cherry:

  • True to its claims – this lip balm soothes, relieves, moisturizes.
  • Tastes and smells like cherry.
  • It has SPF 15, so its sun safe.
  • Not greasy.

Cons of Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm – Cherry:

  • Same cons as mentioned for Classic.

Overall Verdict:

I totally love these lip balms, it’s the best lip balm I have ever used, hands-down winner for its healing properties.  Both the versions are really great. If you have extremely chapped lips, I think Classic version works a little better. I will stock it up whenever I get a chance.
