I love DIY and I love anything lip-related: stick, gloss, or balm. That’s why I’m all grins over this all-natural, make-your-own lip balm kit that also helps provide valuable job skills to women in the Washington, DC area. (Did I mention I love that too?)
These lips of mine are a No Yucky Chemicals Zone, and that includes fake strawberry flavoring. Luckily, this adorable box is deliciously full of good ingredients and a big heart.
The DIY lip balm kit from Mary Kearns on Uncommon Goods includes everything you need to make five pots of organic, ethically sourced lip balm that you can feel good about, inside and out. The ingredients are simple and safe, the flavor is chocolate mint, the packaging is recycled and compostable, and the kits are hand-assembled by women living in transitional housing and building their job skills. Win-win-win.
Yes, the price is a little high, but every time you slather your lips this winter, you’ll know that you’re doing good for women in need, for the world, and for your own mucous membranes. Plus? Awesome, awesome holiday gift. Yay! -Delilah
