DIY Kool-AId Lip Balm

Share the Scoop

Lipstick or lip gloss is a beauty product that most women have in their purses right now because bold, soft, and healthy lips are beautiful. However, a lot of these products can get rather expensive, especially if you wear it on a continuous basis like me. I wear lip gloss all day long because my lips feel dry without it. Why not make your own lip balm for the price of one, and create your own flavors? Here is a DIY from Just Us Girls that is really cheap and of course, like always, it’s really easy to make.

All you need is 1 cup of Vaseline (petroleum jelly), 1 package of Kool-Aid drink crystals, 1-2 packets of sweetener (optional), and lip balm containers. You can buy the containers for like $5-7 on Amazon for a dozen, and according to LaQuita at Just Us Girls, you can buy a pack of three at Dollar Tree Stores. You can also check Aroma Haven for cheap storage containers.

Add one cup of Vaseline in a microwave safe bowl.

Heat in the microwave for 30 second increments, and stir between each heating. LaQuita recommends wearing gloves as the bowl gets very hot. After about 3-4 minutes of heat and stirring, the Vaseline will turn into liquid.

Pour in Kool-Aid packet. The more you put in the stronger the color will be. If you want the lip balm to be very light, then do not put very much in. LaQuita recommends using sweetener because using only Kool-Aid can make the lip balm very bitter. Stir the Kool-Aid and sweetener until they are completely dissolved.

If you see that the Vaseline is starting to cool off and get hard, then you can put it back in the microwave for 30 minutes. Do NOT DO THIS STEP IF IT IS STILL LIQUIDY.

Pour the liquid into your lip balm containers, and leave to cool off and harden.

Repeat this whole process if you want to make different flavors.

    You are supposed to let the vaselin cool down a little bite before putting the Kool aid if you don’t wait it will look like a Kool aid drink
