This compact kit comes beautifully packaged with all the tools you need to make five tins of organic lip balm. I loved the fact that you can make some for yourself and spread the love by giving away the rest to friends and family. I became extremely popular from the lip balms (you can make mint, chocolate, or chocolate mint to name a few examples)and I have so many people asking for more. I am going to get several kits next time. I wish they made one twice the size so I could keep gifting these wonderful homemade balms!

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!

        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.

                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.
