Winter is hard on lips, so this scrub is designed to be paired with my Candy Cane Peppermint Lip Balm to create perfectly gift-able, minty lip kit. Begin by buffing off any dry skin with this rich scrub, and then follow up with the creamy lip balm for soft, pampered, minty lips.
Welcome to our first holiday DIY of 2023! We’re kicking off with a lovely Candy Cane Peppermint Lip Balm as lip balm is one of the most giftable DIYs around. It’s inexpensive to make (but expensive to buy), almost everyone uses it, it’s got a long shelf life, and you can easily blow the socks off your loved ones with this beautiful handmade alternative to store bought.
We’re continuing our Hot Chocolate holiday making theme with some tubes of the sort of lip butter I need in the winter. It’s rich, creamy, and most importantly, long-wearing. This stuff sticks around for hours—an absolute must when it’s cold, dry, and generally bleh outside. You’ll only need seven ingredients; most of them are pretty common, and the two you might not have can probably be purchased locally at a drug store or health food shop. Let’s get buttery!
If you love Burt’s Bees lip balm, you should definitely try this formulation. I’ve been working on this project for months, testing and adjusting and comparing it to the original and circling back and trying again, and I think I’ve gotten really, really close. I wouldn’t call my version completely identical, but it has the lovely slippy/creamy/minty blend that I’ve always loved about Burt’s ❤️
This cherry-hued, marzipan-scented lip balm is a lovely bit of summery goodness in a tube! You’ll need just six ingredients to make it, and you can customize the colour—including adjusting the formulation to include more pigment to create a lip tint. You can choose to put the balm in tubes or tins; I prefer tubes so I don’t have to worry about having clean fingers whenever I apply it, but both are great options. Let’s get started!
Today we’re blending up a product I’ve had a lot of requests for! I’m calling this pale green lotion Happy Hemp Hand Cream, and it was inspired by The Body Shop’s Hemp Hand Protector. My version is a bit lighter and more slippy, but it still includes many of the same star ingredients. I think you and your hands will love it 😊
