I bought this awesome lip balm making kit at A ToyGarden, and today the girls and I tried it out.
We loved that it was made with all natural ingredients; shea butter, beeswax, sunflower oil and grapefruit oil. The directions were easy to follow. We choose to warm the balm on the stove rather than the microwave. I think we heated the balm too warm as the containers melted a bit. You can notice it in the above photos. The girls couldn't believe the plastic container melted, they were concerned. If I were to make this lip balm again, I would use glass containers. Also, our funnel was a big help.
The finished lip balm was comforting and smooth. I am definitely inspired to make more beauty products with the girls. It was a good bonding and learning experience. They love their new grapefruit lip balm.
I am loving this link and can't wait to try the redbeet lipstick. What is your favorite diy beauty product?
