Hi guys! So my boyfriend gave me an early Christmas present! eek, I know – and it was something totally unexpected. It was a make your own lip balm kit from Sweet Cecily’s on Etsy and I just couldn’t wait to get this started. I’m someone who always needs lip balm on them and especially around winter & I also think they make great gifts! So without further ado – let’s take a look, shall we.
First of all, the box is so simple and so cute. Id never made my own lip balm before so, I was quite intrigued by how you do this and also very eager.
tada! so the box includes 5 little tins, and the instructions are printed on the lid of the box. Best thing is, that this isn’t rocketing science, its a fun quick and easy thing to do. But what is included?
As you can see, you get even amounts of each of the ingredients & all good ingredients! Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Shea Butter & Oils – all things that are absolutely great for your lips. As the instructions go – all you do is melt the Cocoa Butter, Beeswax & Shea Butter in a bowl above some hot water, after it’s all melted add in the oils & mix well. Take off heat afterwards then add in the flavour! – the one my boyfriend picked out for me is spearmint (love).
When everything is all mixed in well, just pour into the tins provided!
Finished product! they’re such gorgeous little tins – I’m really happy with the results because now it means I can take these into work and give my lips some crucial VIP treatment over the winter.
Don’t forget to take a look at Sweet Cecily’s over on Etsy as they do many more different lip balms for all occasions!
