DIY Lip Balm


This is a DIY for a lip balm that only requires ingredients that you can find at home. All you need is Vaseline, and old lip gloss or lipstick, a container, a microwave proof mug/jug and a microwave.

Start off with a small amount of Vaseline and the lip colour in the mug and microwave for 20 seconds or until melted. Keep adding more of the ingredients until it is the colour you want and it is the right amount for your container. Freeze until solid.

For a sheerer colour use less lip gloss/lipstick and for a bolder colour use more. You could make different designs:

·        Ombre by making separate batches (a darker shade, freeze, and then a lighter shade on top, freeze and continue as many times as you want),

·        Multiple Shades by pouring a shade into a side of the container then tilting it on its side and covering it with cling film and then repeating this step as many times as you want. This is a good option for travelling.

·        Marble by making two batches and mixing them together a little bit in the container and freezing.

·        Flavoured by adding some scented lip balm to the mix (I used my Nivea Vanilla and Macadamia lip balm, and it smells really good)
Parle bientôt,
