To keep lips soft and silky, this fruity lip balm exfoliates dead skin and softens at the same time.


  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 scoop powdered drink mix in your favorite flavor
  • Lip gloss jars


Clarify the vegetable shortening by heating it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir in the drink mix. Pour the mixture into a lip gloss jar. Let the mixture harden for 10 minutes and your lip gloss is ready! You can decorate the jars with fun stickers and sparkles! Lasts up to six months unrefrigerated.
