Of everything that could drive you crazy about being a mom, it’s always the little things that seem to be the worst, right? For me, it’s the kiddos messing up my lip balm. I don’t mind them using it if they ask and then hand it back to me to close when they’re done. Of course, that’s not how it goes most of the time.
My kids are constantly getting into my lip balm in my purse. I get super annoyed grabbing my Burt’s Bees and finding it messy and destroyed because little hands got to it. Part of the problem is they don’t twist the balm back down after they use it. Instead, they smash the lid back on and slip it into my bag.
These candy flavored homemade lip glosses are stored in small lidded pots instead of twist tubes. That makes them more kid friendly plus the containers are reusable. No more destroyed lip balm in your purse. Let your kiddos have their own lip gloss and leave yours alone.
Candy Flavored Lip Gloss Materials
- Cocoa Butter Petroleum Jelly
- Shimmery Cosmetic Grade Mice Powder
- Candy Flavor Oil (I used Root Beer and Watermelon.)
- Wooden Popsicle Sticks
- Small Containers for Mixing
- Small Lidded Containers
First, add a small amount of cocoa butter petroleum jelly into 1 container per flavor you are making.
Next, add some cosmetic grade mica powder on top of the petroleum jelly.
- I chose to use different colors for the different flavors. This is completely optional. You can use 1 color for all of the flavors although the candy flavor oil may change the color when mixed in.
Stir your mica powder into the petroleum jelly with a wooden popsicle stick until it is well combined.
Add in 5-10 drops of your candy flavoring oil after your mica powder is mixed into your petroleum jelly. Then mix the oil into your lip gloss thoroughly.
Lastly, after you’ve mixed your lip gloss, scoop them into the small lidded containers.
Step 6 (Optional)
Top your container lids with stickers or cabochons to label the flavors.
Is it really kid-friendly if it’s not delicious? Um, no. This candy flavored homemade lip gloss recipe has it all. It moisturizes dry lips and has a hint of shimmer. It smells and tastes delicious plus it’s stored in a totally kid-friendly container too! These make great party favors, stocking stuffers, or basket stuffers for kids because you can whip up a large batch in no time at all.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
