Poll: Chapstick is:
  • 35.4% - A brand name. Lip balm is the proper term. 931
  • 13.3% - Not so much something I want as something I NEED. 350
  • 26.8% - Stashed all over my house, car and work. 705

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

If I leave the house without lip balm then I sometimes stop and buy another. It's my crack, but it hasn't killed me yet and so I'll keep chasing the dragon!

Foo, I have one in every pocket. Dry lips are one of my big pet peeves, along with anything under my nails.

Something that actually dries your lips out.

I have really dry skin and lips, so I try to use stuff that doesn't dry my lips out more. pure Lanolin works the best and lasts the longest.

It is used when your lips hurt real bad.

I thought we already covered this.

A Chap Stick is a large wooden stick with a balled end on it you use to strike the hour on a bell.

It is something I don't use anymore because it contains petroleum based ingredients. I recently discovered a brand of lip balm called HURRAW! and it is awesome. Not all beeswaxy like some brands. Or, the Burt's Bees Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment (in a tub) which is like natural Vaseline is awesome.

I don't care if Chapstick is the brand...I still call all products of that type chapstick. Plus, I tend to only buy Chapstick brand. Cherry is my favorite. There's 1 in my purse, 2 on my bedroom dresser, 1 in the kitchen, 1 in the living room....and probably several others hidden around the house. I have to smother my lips in its goodness several times a day.

Ever since Ive been in a relationship Ive been addicted to chap stick. Kissing chapped lips is not fun.

that sweaty stickiness between your skin and your chaps.

inferior to Burt's Bees! I'll use it but I much prefer my yellow tube!

Chapstick is...

not Badger Balm. Badger Lip Balm 100% organic extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, castor oil, and aloe. Far better than cheap, waxy, hard Chapstick!

Something I continue to buy even when I have plenty...just don't happen to have at that moment while waiting in the checkout lane!
