    Bought this kit for my Goddaughter and her mother as a Christmas gift. I wanted to get something they could do together while my Goddaughter was home from college. They were so excited to spend time together, creating their own lipbalm!

        My friend's daughter got this kit for her birthday, and we helped her make the lip balms over the weekend. She is 9 and was able to follow the directions on her own. We helped with melting the ingredients on the stove, of course, but other than that she measured and mixed and poured. She has been proudly enjoying her first tin of homemade lip balm!

        Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Lip Balm Kit:

        The box is much bigger than it needs to be and the "information cards" included could all be fit on one card. It would have been more interesting to have multiple recipe suggestions for the lip balm than information on what is bees wax and how coco butter is harvested. The kit is one time use and the ingredients come pre-measured, though when my mother made it she said it made more than the tins could hold (a bonus, but keep that in mind and have extra containers ready!). The lip balm is very nice and keeps your lips soft, but the scent is very subtle (good or bad depending on how scented you like your lip balm).

          Great idea, but...

          Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Lip Balm Kit:

          I love the idea of this and everything was packaged well. Shipping was very prompt which is great! My only complaint is that the kit I gave as a gift did not contain the spearmint essential oil which I didn't realize until the recipient was opening the gift and trying to find it! It was a little disappointing that the kit was incomplete. Other than that, this is a fun gift/project.

          I purchased this as a present for my granddaughter so she could experience making her own beauty products. We were excited to make the lip gloss while we were all together for the holidays but unfortunately the kit required measuring with tools we did not have. The beauty products still have not been made!
