Have you ever bought a lipstick color that you thought would suit you better as a lip gloss? Well you’re in luck! We have the solution for you.
What you will need is:
Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly
Double Boiler (or 2 pots that fit into each other)
Stove (NOTE: If you are under age please have a parent help or supervise you 🙂 )
Contact lens case or an empty gel liner case.
First, fill your double boiler with water in the bottom container or fill the bigger pot with some water. Bring the water to a simmer. Then, get your lipstick and twist it until the whole thing shows. Use your toothpick to cut the lipstick into the other pan. Grab some Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly and put it in the same pot. The more you use, the sheerer it will be. Put the pot into the boiling water and watch it melt. When it has completely melted, pour out the contents into the contact lens case (great to travel with) or in the empty gel liner case. Put it in the freezer so it can cool off and voila! you have your new lip gloss 🙂

Here’s how it’s made:
Get 1/4 cup of coarse sugar. If you don’t have coarse sugar, you can use brown sugar or salt
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
1/8 cup of Olive oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until the coconut oil chunks have disappeared. Once it’s done, it should be a creamy consistency.
Scrub your hands with this for 2 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Do not use soap! This allows the remaining oils to stay on your body and soak in.
