Carmex

Recommended Posts

Carmex. This product is so evil. It was actually designed to harm your lips by sucking all the moisture out so you have to keep reapplying it every half hour or so. This might not be a big deal to everyone but if you have sensitive skin then it's good to know.

You lips would be better off if you bought some of that really cheap stuff that's made mostly from wax.

Carmex=very bad, indeed.

but it makes sense, though. (in a twisted way) the company wants you to keep buying their product, so they make it so you will keep needing it.

Of course they do; many companies do that. The problem I have is how harmful the product actually is. yes.gif

Wow. Carmax is not my lip balm of choice, but I have used it in the past and didn't notice that effect. Is there documentation of this or is it just a tongue in cheek complaint?

Its the camphor that is bad for the lips; its the main active ingrediant in Caremx.

for anyone looking for a really good lip moisturizer.... pay attention:

1. go buy a $10 tub of Aquaphore made by Eucerine.

2. buy a $0.99 empty plastic jar aboaut the size of a carmex container.

3. buy a deeply tinted lipgloss in your favorite color (or you can mix colors if you already have some, or jsut leave them out all together, aquaphore is amazing)

4. to every carmex size container you fill with Aquaphore, add about a couple of swipes of your favorite color and mix them together.

Voila! instant lip relief. This stuff is the best... it really is. I went on a skin medication a while back that completely dried out every mucus membrane, and my doctor recommended Aquaphore. It has no taste, no smell, and no nasty side effects. Plus, it WORKS. you'll never have lip problems again and that large tub will last you for a year. Have fun:)

Neat idea! I agree, the aquphor is a very good product, it's basically vaseline on speed. I'd never thought about putting flavors / colors in it though. Neat. original.gif

Carmex . . bad for your lips? I never heard that before! I've used Carmex in the past and I never experienced any side effects or otherwise from the product.

me neither. I always thought positive of this product. It never dried out my lips, it actually restored them to their natural state once. And if it was harmful, why does the government allow the selling of this? ph34r.gif

This makes me glad I don't use that stuff, I just let my lips be and tough it out.

Carmex is meant for treating cold sores and other mouth ulcers, not dry lips.
