How to make 100% natural lip balm - Christmas issue of C2 Magazine

8:00:00 AM

Hello darlings!
Those of you who know me in person know that I am a pretty casual type of woman. I don’t wear make up everyday and when I do the whole thing consists of a couple of layers of purple mascara (I am weird, you should know that by now), a never-in-the-right-spot and totally un-blended blush and some red lipstick which -most of the times - I wear without using a lip liner, so you can imagine the horror picture that can produce!

 


In other words, I am a make up disaster. So, if you are here because you saw the title and thought you’d find make up advice herein, I should probably tell you now: You are better off taking advice from your car mechanic than me. So, consider yourself warned and proceed with caution.




That been said, this post is NOT a total waste of cyber space. I am here to show you how to make your own red color lip balm from 100% natural products. I am a chemist after all so some shake ‘n’ bake I can probably manage ;)


Here’s an interesting fact about lip balms, lip gloss and lipsticks: Everything you put on your lips ends up in your mouth, and eventually in your gut. So you really need to think twice about the chemicals and potentially harmful substances you end up eating off of your lips.

You can find the recipe and the procedure – which is really not that hard to do and you don’t need to be a chemist to nail it – in our festive issue of C2 Magazine shown below. I am always near if you need any advice or tips! Click here to go to the recipe page.



Unsurprisingly, our Christmas issue is filled with festive ideas to help you spent lots and lots of creative hours with your kids and by your own too. Look out for our yummy recipes and many Christmas decorations ideas! Enjoy yourself and you’re yourselves a Merry little Christmas time!!!


Lots of love

  1. I am actually sick of reading the ingredients in the lipsticks that claim to be natural only to see that they are anything but! They add a couple of natural materials and advertise them as natural when they have many chemicals in them. I've made my own lip balm for a couple of years now and I like it much better. I am going to try the beet root dye I saw in your article.
    BTW this magazine of yours is pretty amazing! I loved the Christmas decorations.

  4. Wow the recipe really look simple and not very much ingredients! For so so so long time I have been using tinted lipbalm from Nivea. I dont like usinf lipstift but my lips are pale so it is very important for me to have a tinted lipbalm. It is something I always always carry around. I really should try to make some myself!

  7. Brilliant idea! My lips get so bad during winter, they look like crispy bacon :(. I use Lush Honey Trap as it's totally natural but it's a bit pricey. Can't believe how many of the cheap lip balms say they are natural when they aren't.

  8. It is pretty scary what's in makeup, shampoo and lotion. All potentially entering our body through pores. It would be nice to make my own lip balm.

  9. This is such a fun idea! I always worry about all the chemicals that are in a lot of our products. If I make it myself at least I know what goes into it! :)

  10. I really need to start using natural lip balm like this! I wear it all the time in the winter and I don't even want to think about what ingredients are in the random products I buy...

  11. I agree it’s so important to realise that lip balms and sticks do end up digested.

  27. Wow what a great idea to make your own lip balm! My lips are so dry at this time of year!

  28. I actually wear make up every day, but I never use lipsticks:-) I've made my own immortelle lip balm and I love it. Your recipe is great because it has that red colour, which would be great for me to start using 'lipsticks'.

  29. Wow, this is nice! I would always prefer natural ingredients over our cosmetics. And the outcome is so cute very girly and chic. Thanks for sharing your beauty tips.

  30. I didn't for some reason realise that you were a chemist but how awesome is that? I love the sound of the homemade lip balm and the fact that it is natural is very important to me x

  31. Ok, yeah, I've somehow never really thought about how the lip balm and gloss goes into our mouth and we probably ingest some of it every day. Plus, the skin is actually our biggest organ and absorbs many of the chemicals right into our bodies. Thanks for the tips and the recipe!
