DIY: Lip Balm

Today I have a really easy DIY which I wanted to try for ages but I never had a lipstick I wanted to sacrifice. Only recently when I was organizing my makeup collection I found this very old lipstick and I wanted to have a look at it but then the lipstick holder broke and I couldn't close it anymore. Perfect occasion to make my own lip balm as I really liked the color and didn't want it to go to waste. The problem was that the lipstick was indeed really old and I also mixed it with a bit too much coconut oil so the result is rather unusable but if you use a lipstick that is still okay and rather mix it with petroleum jelly or a uncolored lip balm this DIY should be foolproof:

a lipstick
lip balm or petroleum jelly
a little jar
a cooking pot and an additional bowl to make a water bath

1. Cut off the lipstick and add the same amount of petroleum jelly or lip balm.
2. Fill your cooking pot with water, put the bowl on top and bring to boil.
3. Put the lipstick and petroleum jelly/lip balm inside the bowl and make them melt.
4. Stir up the liquid and put it in your little jar.
5. Put it in the fridge for some hours (better even one day).
6. Ready to use!
