Lanolin that is and it actually works awesome. It doesn't have that soothing sensation of Chapstick but it heals them awesomely. I'm sure if I put some menthol on my lips that would cause the cooling sensation.
I was looking everywhere for Chapstick but couldn't find any but then I saw my nipple cream. I'm like well it does heal sore and cracked nipples why not lips? I decided I better look it up firt but apparently its actually a common thing to do lol. Some people swear by it. :)

I've done it many times. If you read the back label it actually says that one of the uses is for dry, chapped lips.

I actually did that first but mine doesn't say anything about that just talks about nipples.

I love nipple cream, I use it for my daughters exzema, for our chapped lips, diaper rash, everything!

I'm glad I still have a lot of lanolin - I'm going to try this on my son who CONSTANTLY licks his lips and around them in the winter.. And the dry cold air makes him look like a clown

                         


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

It's the best for my daughter. I put that on her sore, cracked lips and by the next day they are all better.
