Dear Santa, I Want To Make My Own Lip Balms

As a child I used to love when my sister purchased me all those “smart” “DIY” craft kits. Let’s see, I had a kit to create my own jewelry, I had a Fashion Plates, I had Shrinky Dinks (which were completely pointless but incredible to my feeble six year old self), so, yeah, you get the point….! I mean we all, at some point in our childhood, had some sort of do it yourself kit. I think the reason I don’t know how to cook today is because of the Easy Bake Oven!

Recently, I was at Barnes and Noble, I know right? Who goes to the book store anymore? I missed those days! Anyway, I was at the book store and I came across this All-Natural Lip Balm Boutique. I ended up buying it, but not for me. No really, it’s a gift. I picked it up for my little cousin in the hopes she’ll open it and require me to help her use it. Ahem…yeah, that’s a good excuse.

Someone is bound to comment and tell me how easy it is to make lip balms. People, I burn boiling water. Attempting to create lip balms might result in me burning down Manhattan. This kit contains molds, stickers, and everything else you need to create six beewax lip spheres.

Needless to say it looks terribly exciting. Is it odd I want one for myself? Apparently you have to buy essential oils separately to flavor the balms but that shouldn’t be a problem.

Wish me luck helping my cousin create these. I mean, I can’t blow up the house or anything with a melt and pour lip balm set right?

This kit is available now at barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Be careful picking out essential oils to go in a lip product… some are not safe for skin application.
    “An essential oil that is safe when applied in one way may not be safe when used in another way. Some oils are considered safe if inhaled, and yet may be irritating if applied to the skin in concentrations as low as 3-5%. Thyme, oregano, clove, and cinnamon bark essential oils are examples of this. Several of the citrus oils, such as bergamot, lemon, lime, orange, and angelica, can cause phototoxicity (severe burns or skin cancer) if there is exposure to natural sunlight or sun-bed radiation following skin applications, whereas this would not result from inhalation.
    Be sure to clarify the recommended application method and concentration for the essential oil and intended use. And once again, don’t ingest oils without professional guidance.”

    OMG this would have TOTALLY caught my eye too! Darn it, why don’t I have a little girl in my life old enough to play with this?! I don’t think my 22 year old baby sister would be into it LOL. And I totally blame the fact that I can’t make a box cake to save my life on my Easy Bake dependency as a child ;D

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL! amen! That Easy Bake ruined cooking for me forever. I burn boiling water now, totally Easy Bake Oven’s fault!

    Shrinky Dinks! Oh how I loved watching these in the oven. And especially the one who had some fluffy thing in the middle. I need to go get me some of these lip balm kits, then find out where I can get my hands on Shrinky Dinks!

    • Isabella Muse

      me too and I can recall how impatient I was for them to come out! and how disappointed I was later thinking, “Now what?” LOL! haha! Oh lord, hobby shops and amazon has shrinky dinks girl!

    • Isabella Muse

      haha yes! and OMG those Popin Cookin sets are disgusting lol! have you tried hem? YUK!

        LOL OH NO! I bought a bunch but we’ve only done one so far – it was for tiny donuts. It was kind of like eating cake that had sat in water for a while, lol, so the consistency was gross – but I didn’t mind the taste. I hope the other ones I bought turn out okay! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Isabella Muse

          At the very least they are fun! lol! I haven’t tried the donuts but I tried the pizza, ramen, and hamburger. All were gross! LOL! Let me know how you do!
