Valentine's Day Gift Dilemma Solved! Make Your Own Lip Balm
Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and many guys are wondering what to get their sweetheart for this holiday. Flowers and chocolate are the standard gifts, but for a guy who wants to do something a little special, then I have the perfect gift idea. Eco Lips, the popular lip balm company, has a brand new product line that I have fallen in love with-MY Eco Lips, where you can create your very own custom lip balm!
I was given the opportunity to create a lip balm on MY Eco Lips, and really enjoyed the process. You start by choosing a size/container for your lip balm, and then it gets fun. Choose from 4 different bases; these are all certified organic, and they even have a vegan option. Next, add up to 3 specialty oils. Information about each oil and it's specialty is included, so you can decide what will work best for your needs. Then add flavor-again, up to 3. You get to decide the flavor strength as well; do you prefer a mild, medium, or strong flavor? It's all up to you! If you like a sweeter balm, you can also add stevia. Next step is organic herbal infusions, to help soothe. If you want a touch of sparkle in your lip balm, add some Mica, a natural sparkling ingredient. Then it's on to the container design; your tube color, label and cap colors, a last chance to add a premium ingredient, and then-naming your creation! Here's a picture of my order so you can see all the ingredients I used:
My custom lip bam arrived within just a few days of placing my order. Seriously super fast creation and shipping time! With my first use, I was hooked! I used the chocolate, white chocolate and coffee flavors for mine, and I absolutely love the result! It smells like a Starbuck's specialty drink, no joke! And the balm? It is the smoothest, most moisturizing lip balm I've ever used! With the freezing cold temperatures recently, I have been using lip balm several times a day. And this stuff works! My lips are thankful for MY Eco Lips, because it provides wonderful relief for the dryness and chapping.
To seriously wow your valentine next week, why not give her a gift certificate to MY Eco Lips? It's a gift she'll be sure to love!!
