Will body lotion work as Chapstick? My lips are chapped and that is all I have.

Report as

I have heard petroleum jelly helps chapped lips.I wouldn't use the body lotion just because it's not meant for that and you might accidentally swallow some.

That might sting. Hmm. Do you by chance have any Vaseline? Vaseline works good as ChapStick.

And if you want a really good brand of ChapStick its called "Blistex" and I think it works way better then ChapStick.

Body lotion is a bit harmful with all the chemicals in it. You can try vaseline or Aveeno (I do that all the time when I run out of chapstick) without any scents.

Yes, but since it's not meant for lips, it will only work temporarily. So get Chapstick as soon as you can :)

No the scents and chemicals in the lotion will burn your lips making them dryer. I have heard to not use Chapstick because it dries your lips out more to make you use it more. You should use Vaseline. I have used that before and it makes your lips soft in less than a night!
