Blogging is such an awesome way to connect with like minded individuals and brands. Wholesale Supplies Plus recently contacted me about a partnership and I jumped for joy. A company that specializes in homemade cosmetics and lotion making is right up my alley. As you know, I love making my own lotions and scrubs, but having to purchase every single ingredient separately starts to add up, especially if you’re only looking to make a small amount. So when I spotted the Cranberry Lip Scrub and Body Butter, I just knew that it was a match made in DIY/Craft blogger heaven.
**I initially attempted to make these goodies during nap time, but those of you who follow me on Instagram know that the little miss has been on nap strikes. Lip balm tubes plus grouchy toddler equals disaster. So the “during” photos were really WAY too ugly to share. Pretty after photos work, right?**
I don’t know about you, but I’m a label and ingredient list reading junkie. You should try it at the grocery store. Scary. I’ve recently started converting to more natural beauty and body care products and have dabbled in the world of lotion making. Not going to lie, its a little time consuming. Imagine my giddiness in discovering that this cranberry lip scrub and body butter kit has FIVE non-icky ingredients, you can find it HERE. I think it’s beyond amazing that A) the ingredients are listed on the site and easy to find BEFORE you buy and B) are natural.
I was able to make ten tubes of lip scrub and fives jars of body butter really quickly despite not having a microwave using the double boiler method. I know, I KNOW! We haven’t had a microwave in 5 years, but it’s because we’re less inclined to stuff our faces with frozen burritos and bagel bites without one.
Anyways… if you have a microwave, it’ll probably take you 5-10 minutes. Awesome, right?! Making one of these kits would be a perfect activity with a school aged child.
Easy peasy. I added a few drops of orange essential oil to the mix to make it my own and love cranberry and orange together. Madras anyone? I also made labels for my goodies since I’ll be gifting them.
I do want to say that the body butter is more of a lotion bar than the kind of body butter you might find at a store. I honestly think lotion bars are awesome during humid summers because they’re moisturizing without the greasy feeling you sometimes get using the pump lotions. This also isn’t a highly fragranced lip scrub or body butter. It’s VERY subtle, which I love.
Wholesale Supplies Plus has so many other kits to try if you’re starting to make your own cosmetics and lotions, as well as supplies for those of you make large batches of your own creations for sale.
