Shiny Shimmer Lip Gloss (like Burt’s Bees)

This lip gloss has a very nice feel, not sweet, but flavorful. There did not seem to be a lot of color that transferred to the lips. The shimmer in the container will depend on what mica powder you use. If you use the Mica Pearl Flake as we did in the first tube, it will lighten the color used because it contains titanium dioxide.

This is similar to Burt’s Bees, not Lip Smackers. This lip gloss is 100% natural unless you use the lip tints (FD&C colors) to color them.

Felted Soap Instructions ( with video)

What is felted soap?!

The felt shrinks along with the soap as you use it, and the casing can be reused by slitting along the edge and inserting a new bar of soap.
