      This was just what I was looking for as a birthday gift for my sister; she loved it! As someone that loves mixing, this gives her the ability to create her own quality lip balm.

      Bought this for my granddaughter for her 18th birthday. She hasn't made them yet...so I can't give it a four. She was pleased with the contents, loved the smell of the products, and couldn't wait to show her friends. I think it was a hit!

          I was looking for a gift for my niece turning 15. With help from Frontier Woman, I found Uncommon Goods site and this was a gift suggestion. She is thrilled and the headline of this review was her opinion on the gift.

          As expected. Thank you for the tracking info.

            I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 13 year old daughter. She was able to make this without any help from me. Love projects she can do on her own! This made several tins of lip balm she was able to keep one for herself and give the others as Christmas gifts to friends and relatives. She decorated the tins as well. Should mention she gave one to me and I love it. Great product. The lip balm smells great and keeps my lips moist.

              My wife loves lip gloss and this was perfect for her.Everything was good until the dog decided to unwrap this and eat everything. Luckily, the ingredients were all natural and food grade and my dog didn't get sick despite eating all the cocoa butter, wax and sunflower seed oil. She did love the idea though, just couldn't use it.

                      I bought this as a gift for my best friend who lives in another state so I haven't seen it, but she seemed very excited about it! She loves lip balms & is a do-it-yourselfer so it was a win-win...very unique gift! I'm only giving it 4 stars because she hasn't used it yet, so I can't attest to the quality. Great unique gift!
