DIY Easy Recipes for Lip Gloss

Leave a comment

ID-10054942In Winter and Summer your lips can get chapped unless you protect them from the sun and wind. You can make up your own lip gloss and have ingredients on the ready for when you need more.

To make a yummy chocolate lip gloss – heat 1 TBS petroleum jelly with one chocolate chip in the microwave for about 20 seconds or until the chocolate chip is fully melted. Take out carefully and stir until the chocolate is all blended. Put into an empty cosmetic jar and let cool completely before use.

Want to make a fruity flavor lip gloss? Simply add a spoonful of any flavored drink mix to another tablespoon of petroleum jelly and heat for about 25-25 seconds, remove carefully and stir well. Let cool in an empty cosmetic jar before using.
Lip Glosses should keep for up to one month.

You can use more petroleum jelly if you want to make more, just adjust the chocolate or fruit drink to taste.

Great project for the family and would make fun gifts.
