Just to give you an idea of how behind I am when it comes to blogging: This was actually supposed to be a DIY tutorial for an easy but helpful gift for the holidays.

As in.. Christmas time.

But whatevs. This is actually the perfect project for Valentine’s Day. Who doesn’t need a little healing and nourishing on those lips during the cold winter months?

This recipe is super easy to throw together and if you’re into DIY skincare you probably already have everything on hand.

The lipstick is totally optional. I used one tube to color an entire batch, and it was mostly just for the drama of the finished product. It doesn’t actually show on your lips, or if it does it’s just a teensy bit.

      I got them from Michael’s in the WEDDING aisle. I think they came in a pack of 40 or so but with a 40% off coupon they came out to be much cheaper than buying the tins individually.
