Bloggy Giveaway: Lip Balm


Sarah Palin, take note: on average, a woman whom regularly wears lip stick will consume two pounds of the stuff over her lifetime, often ingesting ingredients that are harmful to herself and the environment.
So I'm switching to an all-natural lip balm I made myself. Unlike some commercial brands of lip stick, which contain petrochemicals and parabens, an endocrine disrupter, this lip balm is made of almond oil, beeswax and vitamin E oil. It gets it sheer red tint from alkanet root instead of harmful lead acetates or coal-tar dyes.
Wanna try some? Leave a comment on this post by Friday, September 19, and you'll be entered in a drawing to win a tin of lip balm.

Ever think about selling those?! You could make stickers to put on top of the tins.....with a catchy little name?!?! I could design it for you in photoshop if you have an idea of what you want it to look like.......

I'm a lip gloss person. Lipstick is too flashy for me! I like subtle hints of color.....

This looks like just what I need! Do you sell these? How did you learn to make them? Thanks!

Also my friend ann in the UK tried to leave a comment to win, you can give it to me and i would mail it to her, but she couldn't as she hasn't got a blog. So i am leaving a comment onher behalf.

Sounds awesome... I am in awe that you made it homemade!!

Honey Mommy said...

Nice!

I am SO not a lipstick person... but I could sure go for some lipgloss! Especially if it is natural and won't make me feel like I just ate something greasy and got the lard stuck on my lips. (Ok.. that was gross, sorry!)

Oh, I'd love some.

Thanks for visiting my blog and wishing my son a happy birthday!

That's great that you've made your own. I'm impressed!

By the way, I love the kids art on your header. I'm an art teacher and obviously have a huge appreciation for children's art. That's an awesome clothesline.

You made that yourself?! I'm impressed!!! Like wayfaring wanderer said earlier, have you thought about setting up an etsy shop and selling those? Thanks for the cool giveaway! :)
