DIY lip balm trial

 Some DIY beauty fun with the girls.

Trying our luck at making lip balm today.

We tried caramel flavour and added a little sparkle.

We followed our trialled supplier instruction to start with,
 but I will try again soon changing things a little.

2 teaspoon beeswax*
2 teaspoon of Cocoa butter
1 teaspoon of Shea butter
2 tsp almond oil with Vitamin E
10 drops of caramel flavour
a pick of sparkle

The great:
Nice texture, rich and hydrating.
Fun fun fun!

The not soooo great:
10 drops of caramel flavour did not give enough flavour ? to investigate…
The sparkles disappeared as the balm dried :(

This balm is not suitable for Vegan, it seems like alternative wax is required for Vegan.
eg. Candellila and Macadamia wax?

Have fun!
