Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cole Sore Stopper A few months ago I suffered with a miserable cold sore that just wouldn't respond to any of those highly esteemed products currently on the market. As a last ditch effort I purchased Carmex Cold Sore Treatment. Seeing as I have loved Carmex lip care since it was only sold in a tub, and have recently come to love the Carmex hand care products, which work great on cracked fingers, I thought "what do I have to lose?" Let me tell you, I lost nothing! It took away the pain of my cold sore and helped it heal. Just today, I felt the start of another cold sore, and the first thing I looked for was Carmex Cold Sore Treatment. I've told all my friends to start using it. This is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU!!!! I've been getting winter cold sores on my lip for YEARS. I've tried chapstick, blistex, everything and nothing worked. I was always scared to try Carmex Cold Sore Treatment because it was an expensive investment and I wasn't sure if it would work. One day I bit the bullet and bought a tube. I'm so glad I did. You apply it as soon as your feel the cold sore starting. Sometimes the cold sore develops more but usually it stops it in its tracks. When it does develop more, it usually "dries out" and doesn't break open and hurt. I really highly recommend this product to anyone!! Definitely worth the price and it last for a pretty long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the Day I was a bridesmaid in my cousin John's wedding. About a week before I noticed I was getting a cold sore on the right side of my mouth. I began to panic because the guy who would be usher to me as bridesmaid was a great looking friend of my cousin's who I'd always had a bit of a crush on & now I'd have this sore ruining my smile & who knows what he'd think it was! A friend told me to get some Carmex Cold Sore Treatment & use it NOW! I didn't think anything would work on it as it was really starting to get nasty looking with 4 days to the wedding. I bought it, applied it, then again at bedtime & the next morning it did look a bit better. By the morning of the wedding it was barely noticeable. Carmex Cold Sore Treatment really works! I did a lot of smiling that day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely a keeper! I hate cold sores, they are so embarrassing and also painful. I have been dealing with this issue since I was a teenager and tried all the house remedies that everybody told me, even somebody swears by eating shellfish to cure it! I tried different brands of cold sore treatment, no luck, also they dry the skin around and they make the sore more visible, and since you cannot cover it with makeup there's no way. I was purchasing a Carmex lip balm at my regular pharmacy when the sales person asked me if it was a cold sore what I had in my lip, I thought it was rude, but she apologized and handled me the Carmex cold sore treatment. I did not know Carmex had this product, and at such a good price. I tried it as soon as I got home. Marvelous! three days later cold sore was gone, and no red spot where it was. No dry skin either. I totally recommend this product.
