Yes. Lip balm is more of a vasline type substance, usually derived from vasaline or vasline-like products.
Chapstick a thicker consistancy. The lip balm tends to cover easier and soaks into the skin easier. Resulting in faster action. Where the chapstick doesn't soak in as easy, as it is a thicker substance.
Also beware, some brands have additives that actually cause the lips to dry out over time requiring more use of their product and intensifying the dry lips problem.

Chap Stick is a name brand of lip balm. Kind of like we say Kleenex for facial tissues even if we buy Puffs or Band-Aid for... I can't even think of what the actual name for Band-Aids is right at the moment. LOL!
