Do it yourself, often referred to by the acronym DIY, is a term used by various communities that focus on people (called do-it-yourselfers or DIYers) creating or repairing things for themselves without the aid of any professional or with out spending huge amount 😉 🙂
I usually have Dry and chapped lips through out the year and me kept spending buck on lip balms of various brands … i tried using body butter on lips as well but didnot acheive teh desired result … my dad suggested me using vaseline … though its effective but its way too greasy and i dont like its smell 😛 so i wanted something as effective as vaseline but with fragrance n color n less greasy 🙂 so here i learned with hit n trial the way of making my own lip balm 🙂 hope you girls like it 🙂
Ok, there are many ways of making lip balm but today i am sharing with u in the most basic and easiest way …. by time i will share with u how to make Store like Lip Balm 🙂
Following things you will need to accomplish on making your Lip balm
- Eyeshadow or Pigment [alternatively u can use food color]
- any body butter of your fav flavor 🙂
- Napkin or Tissue Paper
- Freezer 🙂
Ist Step :
Take a scoop of Vaseline in a container and put in microwave for 1 minute. keep putting it on for 1 minutes till it get melted. it took me 6 minutes to get it melt completely.
2nd Step :
Take about half tea spoon of your body butter and mix it in the liquid Vaseline.
3rd Step :
Now take a small amount of your eye shadow which u don’t use much or don’t like it any more and mix it well in the liquid Vaseline… keep adding the shade till u get the color u like. make sure u put a napkin on your desk..
4th Step :
Now pour it in any Empty chap-stick bottle or any container u can find and set it to freeze for 15 mins and your done 🙂 this can get a bit messy ….
MY EXPERIENCE :
when i decided to make my Ist lip balm i couldn’t find any small container which is microwave resistant so i used double boiler for getting the Vaseline melt … it took lot of time trust me …. making lip balm is easier just mixing the color takes effort 🙂 personally i like using body butter for flavoring and not the fragrance oil . my cousin asked me to make her cherry blossom flavoured lip balm so i decide to put some butter. i used Japaneses Cherry Blossom BB of The Body Shop – TBS and i loved it , it gave my Balm the desire fragrance and made it extra moisturized plus i no more need to go to TBS and buy that Balm 😛
