Homemade Instant Fruity Lip Balm

Homemade Instant Fruity Lip Balm

What’s great about homemade Lip Balm

I am a swimmer and my lips can get pretty chapped, especially in the wintertime.  Quite oftten I wear something on my lips to protect them and sometimes its as simple as vaseline if they get really chapped.  Vaseline doesn’t soak into my lips but puts a protective layer on them.  But, it’s not very fun to wear and doesn’t really have a smell.  Another good product is Aquaphor and that also is clear and has no smell.

You all know I’m into fashion!  Well, I think lip wear is also part of fashion with pretty colors.  Wearing dark colors is not for me and I tend to go for light opaque colors.  You know, less is more!

Anyway, back to what’s great about homemade Lip Balm.  Homemade is generally less expensive than store bought and you tend to know more about what is in the product.  With this lip balm you can also choose your shade and favorite fruity flavor.

What you will need to make your homemade instant Lip Balm

* Crystal Light
* Aquaphor or Vaseline
* 2  Q-tips
* Container (small and sealable) to hold the lip balm

I chose Natural Cherry Pomogranite and it even has antioxidant vitamines so it must be good for you, right!

Here’s a little bit of info about Crystal LightIt is a low-calorie powdered beverage mix that offers naturally and artificially sweetened beverage options in multiple flavors. Choose the one you like best.   I want to be sure that what is going on my lips is okay to be ingested.

Homemade Lip Balm is easy to make

First you will need to get the container ready by cleaning it with soap and water. Next you will need to take about 2 teaspoons of Vaseline and put it in the container.

After that pour about a quarter teaspoon of crystal light into the Vaseline. You can add more if you want a more flavorful lip balm.

Now, stir the Vaseline and crystal light together with a Q-tip. You can use your finger but I would recommend using a Q-tip because, in my opinion, it’s easier to apply.

Enjoy  your super sweet homemade Lip Balm

This is an easy way to make lip balm, especially if store bought brands irritate your lips. Plus you can make it on the go and you don’t have to spend alot of money.  I like using this homemade Lip Balm on my lips because I always lick my lips and I don’t like tasting a nasty non thick tasting lip balm. Fruity flavors are delish!
