Seriously. The easiest, cheapest, tastiest lip balm of all time. Not that I was eating it…
I’ve been seeing variations of this floating around Pinterest for a while, so I finally just decided to go for the simplest formula I could think of. I’m a lazy DIY-er.
That’s it, folks. Vaseline and Crystal Lite. I got the raspberry lemonade because I thought the color would be the prettiest.
Random martini swizzle sticks that you found in your junk drawer work perfectly for the stirring.
I just kept adding the Crystal Lite until I was happy with the color.
And it worked great! Smells fruity, tastes good when you
accidentally lick your lips a lot, and it feels nice and soft, not sticky like a lot of lip balms I’ve tried. For literal pennies, this is a winner.
I figured you’d want to see how it turned out, so I took a baseless duck face pose picture. That’s the kind of picture all the cool girls take, right? Kissy duck faces?
Sorry about that. I want to punch myself in my own bill.
Normal face – or as normal as my face can look.
Ohhh luscious vaseline lips…. Whaddya think? Worth a try, eh?
