    Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Lip Balm Kit:

    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 loved this gift! The finished lip balm feels and smells wonderful. We did have to go out and purchase Vitamin E to add to the ingredients. It should have been included for the price.

                          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.
