Easy to use, great gift
I purchased for my daughter who is a lip balm fanatic. She has at least one in every purse & pocket. I only wish there was a choice of flavors or a few more varieties in the kit.
All natural product. All natural scents. Make it yourself. What's not to love?
New Mexico is a dry state so the lip balm was a hit for my daughter she was able to make quite a bit with this kit that she had plenty for her self and several to give to her family and friends. Her friends all wanted to know where she purchased her kit.

This is a gift for my granddaughter. I can not wait to give it to her. It looks like something we can do together
My niece really loved this gift. It's interactive and it's useful when you are done. You learn the process to make your own lip balm and the ingredients are natural. Great gift for teenage girls and tweens!
12 year old daughter loves experimenting with making her own lip gloss and chapstick to the point that she buys them in the store and melts them down to make others. This was a great gift for her but like other reviewers, I wish it had more than 5 tins. It was a big hit at Christmas.
My daughter is a lip balm fanatic and a make your own was the perfect gift!
