      Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Lip Balm Kit:

      What a cool idea. And so incredibly easy to use. My 7 yr old daughter and I made them yesterday afternoon on a whim. My only suggestion would be to put in more tins. The amount of balm that is made is more than the tins provided. NOT to worry, I found every possible tube and screw top dishes for the extra. Going to give as gifts. AND experiment with the oils used next time.

              This was packaged very nicely and made a nice gift, however I feel it is greatly overpriced for what you get.
