Cranberry Honey Lip Gloss
 
Source:
 
Protect sensitive lips from the drying winter elements with this simple yet rich lip balm. Delightful to wear alone or on top of your lipstick for extra shine!
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
  • 10 fresh cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 drop of vitamin E oil*
Method
  1. Select a lip gloss pot, readily available from container stores, or, from used makeup or cosmetics.
  2. Insure the container is sterile by boiling it in hot water. This will help prevent contamination of your finished product, which could lead to spoilage.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Microwave for a couple of minutes or until the mixture just begins to boil. (Bowl may also be heated in a pan of water on a stovetop).
  5. Stir well and gently crush the berries.
  6. Cool mixture for five minutes and then strain through a fine sieve to remove all the fruit pieces.
  7. Stir again and set aside to cool completely.
  8. When cool, transfer into a small portable plastic container or tin.
  9. Apply a small amount onto your lips and remember to smile!
By the Way
*Before you buy a large bottle of Vita E or similar oils from the cosmetics department, try the health aisle and look for Vita E capsules. Compare prices. You'll find a pin pushed through a softgel capsule will let you squeeze just enough drops into many Spa DIY recipes. -- SpaIndex
