Our Make Your Own Lip Balm Kit is a fantastic craft kit for children who adore lip balms and would love to make their own.

This lip balm making kit contains the jars, ingredients and instructions you need to make 5 smooth and creamy lip balms, in your choice of flavour.

These craft kits are very popular and they make for a great activity for children and adults to enjoy together. If you are lucky, your child might even let you keep one of the lip balms you have made.

Included in the lip balm kit are 5 blank labels for your child to write their own messages, making these kits ideal as Birthday or Christmas gifts.

You can personalise the label on the box too, making the kit extra special to the child. You don't need to specify the flavour of lip balms, the wording on the box is up to you. The box will be printed with your exact message.


These are not novelty lip balms. Our recipe has a high percentage of organic shea butter in the recipe, so the balms help heal dry and cracked lips, as well as nourish them to help prevent your lips from drying out. The Avocado Oil and Sweet Almond Oil add a lovely shine to your lips, so make fantastic lip glosses.There are no parabens and no petroleum based ingredients in this kit. Just natural, kind to skin goodness.

The ingredients and percentages of ingredients conform to the European Union Cosmetic Regulations. Polly, founder of Miss Polly Skincare and Make with Mum, is a member of the Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers.

PLEASE NOTE: The oils in this kit can get very hot. Adult supervision is required when making this kit with children. Recommended age 6+. Not suitable for under 3 years.

    Lovely packaging and the end result was fine but not really something you can do with children at a party, which was the idea, due the constant heating and stirring. Also, v hard to wash up the utensils etc afterwards - plastic harder to clean than glass.

    Excellent service and a great product. A fab gift for my niece!

    Looks presentable, but only has one 'flavour' and you have to make all 5 lip-balms in one sitting. Got this for kids to give to mum for mother's day, and after 10 mins of production the lip-balms were made and setting, and that was that - 5 lip-balms sitting in a fridge. I don't think they're going to get through 5 balms in a hurry, and giving them out to others defeats the point of a personalised present. It's a decent idea, but there either needs to be more flavours in the kit (I've read the excuses to a previous review, but my point still stands), or at least have the opportunity to make the 5 balms in 5 separate sittings. So, for the price, it's a bit disappointing.

    Make with Mum's response:

    I am truly sorry the lip balm kit did not meet your expectations. I understand the comments about only having one flavour but the flavour option at the checkout only allows for one to be chosen. The product description also mentions that this kit makes 5 x 1 flavour so I am upfront about this before people purchase the kit. The reason for only having one flavour per 5 lip balms is this: the amount of flavour permitted in making lip balms must not exceed 2% of the total ingredients. As each lip balm weighs 10g, the 2% limit means that the amount of flavour would only be 0.2g if I were to make the kit with 5 separate flavours. Aside from the cost of 5 vials, 0.2g is almost negligible and I would need to add more to the vial (as with all liquids, you never get every drop out as some sticks to the sides of the bottle) and this means I cannot guarantee that only the 2% (0.2g) would end up in the lip balm mixture. It could be a touch more and this would be against the conditions of my European Cosmetic Safety Assessment and also mean that the lip balm made was safe for use. With one flavour per 5 lip balms, I add 1g of flavour to the vial, and this results in a little less than the 1g being incorporated into the mixture - keeping within the safety limits. I also appreciate that this is a quick activity. However these lip balms last a long time, and from my experience with my own son and nieces/nephews, children love giving them to their friends. This is why I include blank labels as children love to personalise them their own way, adding their friends names, funny drawings etc. They are also really really good for your lips - so much better than the shop bought, petroleum based lip balms you buy in the shops. They repair dry skin and help keep them soft and crack free. This is because of the natural ingredients and high concentration of organic shea butter in the lip balm recipe. Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns, and I am sorry that in this instance, the kit did not meet your expectations.
