DIY Lip gloss: a perfect idea as Christmas gift

Hi everybody! Christmas is coming!! In a few days the Christmas markets will open and with them also the search for the right gifts. For many of us a nice gift does not mean choosing the most expensive item or the best known brand. For many, the perfect gift is one that will surprise for its originality and creativity.

A great way to do this is to create personalised gifts at home!

An easy and quick idea is to prepare a do-it-yourself lip gloss. You will only need a few ingredients and less than 15 minutes to do everything (including cleaning your workplace…eheheheheh).

Benefits of the ingredients

Castor oil is a viscous liquid that makes the lips shined and moisturised.

Sweet almond oil prevents chapped lips and keeps the lips moisturised.

Tocopherol is a natural antioxidant useful against free radicals.


  • Pour 8 mL of castor oil in a glass
  • Add 2mL of almond oil
  • Pour some drops of tocopherol (Vitamin E) into the mixture
  • Add glitters
  • Add mica
  • Mix all the ingredients
  • Pour the lip gloss into an empty container

This is an easy and special idea for your Christmas gifts. However, to make it more Christmas, you could try to decorate also the container. I used colored adhesive tape to personalize my DIY lip gloss but you can also print a label with some Christmas motifs such as a little Santa or a Christmas tree.

The procedure is simple and I admit also very funny. If the idea of creating lip gloss attracts you but you do not have time and a way to make them, you can find not very expensive ideas on Etsy . Here are some ideas.
