Re: carmex users? u must look at this!

There is Carmex laying on my night-stand table. I use it every night! At least I don't "kiss my kids" with it, since I only use it at night...but yuck! I'm off to buy some Burt's Bees!

Re: carmex users? u must look at this!

omg i love carmex... i have used it for soooo many years if i dont have it on had i always seem to get dry lips.

they say that if you use something on your lips for so long you can actually cause your lips to be prone to carmex( thats what i use) and you will always get dry lips if you dont loose it. because they are used to it! i know mine are. if i leve for school without my carmex by the end of the night my lips are very very dry

Re: carmex users? u must look at this!

Carmex was originally intended as a topical treatment for cold sores. The menthol and camphor are meant to dry out the moist lesions so they heal faster. So yeah, Carmex actually dries out your lips. Any moisture you get when you first apply it is canceled out by all the drying chemicals in the stuff. So, the more you use it, the worse your lips get!

I used to be a major Carmex junkie in high school. I slathered it on all day long. When I learned that it was actually bad for my lips, I switched to regular ol' Chapstick (which I later swapped for Burts Bees). But....hoo boy!....was I miserable while I was detoxing from the Carmex. My lips cracked and bled and it was awful. So, be forewarned, habitual Carmex users! You might to suffer a little when you finally decide to throw that gunk in the trash. But its totally worth it.
