Lip Science for Kids That Pwns Big People Products!


Kiss Naturals DIY Lip Balm making kit for kids is one of the best things I ever bought my highly impressionable wanna-be fashionista daughter, age 6, name of Smasha. (or something similar)

I've mentioned before that I'm from a pretty ultra-hippy place and the culture here is VERY likely to result in a few pointed questions about the Barbie Brand glitter makeup smeared all over your kid's face: "Is" "How did you find something with natural dyes?"

That's when you have to admit that you, by default, like to load up your darling child with deadly toxins on purpose because of course you don't care. And are bad.

Well guess what? I'm not bad and this product is totally all natural with four ingredients and what's more is literally the best lip gloss product I have ever used in all my life. Oh yeah - I went there. The BEST EVER.

Here's the ingredient list:
  • beeswax
  • shea butter
  • safflower oil
  • essential oil of grapefruit and orange
That's it. Now, we opted to add some nuclear food coloring (shhhh!!!) to our special blend, which was ultra easy to make with a little guy. The process gave her the desperately wished for cosmetic mad scientist moment she clearly desires above all other things.

We heated, mixed and poured. We dropped color and flavor/smell into it. Stirred, poured and then selected and labeled the 8 individual pots for all our best friends in the world.

One of the pots came out so gross in color - a muddy brown disaster with a greenish range of hues - so I took that for my own. AMAZINGLY it turns into a slightly darker, richer natural lip tone on me. The other pots featured punky plum, electric blue and one, oh! one of them was a soft pink that makes one look like they woke up french kissing angels. The gloss is soft and natural feeling, and lasts for so long you can't believe it.


We're going into business, me and Smasha. I'm pretty sure our earthworm colored gloss will outsell all our competitors. (Step one to world gloss domination is to send freebies to Lainey)

  1. How come Lainey gets the freebie? What am I, chopped liver?

    I tease. I'm seriously intrigued by this. I wonder if you can get it in the States? Off to check out their web site.
