Kiss Naturals: Lip Balm Kit ~ #Review & #Giveaway

If you know my little girl, she is just like her mommy, she loves lip balms.  Every time I'm at a drug store she is always asking me to purchase a lip balm.  She likes to take it to school and show it off to the other girls.  I guess it is close enough to actual makeup.

Who is Kiss Naturals?
A Canadian company started in Quebec that provides one of a kind, do it yourself kits using high quality natural ingredients at an affordable price.  Their products are sold in Canada, US, UK, and Australia.

List of DIY kits:
  • Lip balms
  • Soap
  • Bath fizzies
  • Lip gloss
  • Solid perfumes
  • Dog paw balm
I have always wanted to try to make my own lip balm but didn't know where to start.  Kiss Naturals DIY lip balm kit has everything you need.  The kit I received is the regular sized kit and they also sell mini (kids version) which is half the size of the regular kit.




This lip balm kit includes 56 g / 2 oz Shea Butter, 56 ml / 2 oz Safflower Oil, 21 g / 0.75 oz Bees Wax, 5 ml / 1/6 oz Orange Oil, 5 ml / 1/6 oz Pink Grapefruit Oil and 10 reusable lip balm containers.

The instructions are simple enough to follow and safe enough that my daughter can help me with it. Basically empty some of the contents into a bowl, microwave them, mix in the essential oils and then pour everything into the empty containers.  Viola!  Simple, Oui?

My daughter was very excited to make her very own lip balm.  She was able to pour the bees wax and safflower oil very easily however she made abit of a mess when she was trying to get the shea butter out of its container.  Then after the mixtures melted I had her put in some of the essential oils which smells wonderful.  When I tried to pour the mixture into the empty containers.  I wished I had melted them in a measuring cup or a container with a pour spout - it got very messy.  It took about 30 mins to have it harden and my daughter loves it.  She said she will be taking one to school with her.

The result:
  • It was easy to make but preparation can be a little messy (fun messy).
  • It smells wonderful and it was fun to do with my daughter.
  • I think this is a great gift to give to little girls who love makeup.
  • It only took my daughter and I about less than 15 mins to make and it only took about about a hour to harden.
  • I wish that this kit has other scent options like strawberries or vanilla - one of my daughter's favorite scents - orange & grapefruit are still nice scents to use.
  • My daughter had so much fun, she asked if she could do it again.

Kiss Naturals also has a party packs that parents can order from their website for a neat activity idea.  Once the kids are done, it is now a part of their loot bag to take home with them.  A great idea or what?  It would be a huge hit with little fashion models or princesses.

Kiss Naturals are available at amazon.ca, learningtoys.ca, mastermindtoys.com, and toysandco.com to name a few.  See here for local listings.

Kiss Naturals would like to offer one of my readers their own DIY lip balm craft making kit.  Open to Canadians only. Good Luck!

This giveaway will run from January 28th to February 14th, 2013 (midnight EST).  *Note: you have to complete the "task" of your choosing in order to win the prize*  You have 72 hours to respond or I will have choose another winner.
