Rated 4 out of 5 by from It actually works! So I had a cold sore and called my husband and told him to stop at Walgreens and grab Abreva. He came home with the carmex cold sore treatment instead. I wasn't happy but tried it anyway. At first I thought it wasn't doing anything them realized that after the first use of it it didn't make my cold sore bubble up more like Abreva does. Two it numbs it so it helps with the pain and itching right away! I'd definitely say after using for a couple of days that it had lessened the length of my cold sore and it skipped that whole nasty bubbly puss stage!!! My only con to this product is that it does leave a white mark on your face after use so you have to rub in very well and take a kleenex and wipe away the rest. So if they made it clear and not white this would be awesome!!! I'll definitely use this from now on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stick with what you know works. I felt a cold sore coming so I ran out to the pharmacy and decided to try this product rather than my go to abreva. Carmex had such great reviews and I was saving a few dollars. Well, besides the numbing factor, this product didn't work for me. Two days later, my cold sore looks worse than any I've had in years since using abreva. I am disappointed and went back out to get the abreva since I know that works for me.
