My middle daughter is a big fan of making everything from scratch. This includes not only cooking but also beauty products. I guess you could say I am proud that she takes after her mommy in this area as I am a firm believer in knowing what goes into the items we use and those we consume. With a changing world, it has become extremely important in our home to become self-sustainable whenever possible. So with this in mind, I am always thrilled when I get offers to review products from client such as Kiss Naturals that are not only DIY but also contain all natural ingredients.
A bit about the company: Kiss Naturals is the creator of all-natural, DIY cosmetic kits perfect for the young crafter in mind. They offer a wide variety of big and mini beautycare kits to choice from including lava lipgloss, lip balm, bath fizzie, hair chalk, face paint and more. They are also members of ASTRA and NETS Canada, for providing award winning products, made for families by a family. You can buy with confidence knowing that their products are all natural 100% Canadian. Great for crafting, parties and gifts!
Beliefs: At Kiss Naturals, we believe that Nature got it right the first time. We don’t add fillers, additives, dyes or synthetics to any of our products. We simply use Nature’s ingredients in their purest form.
Natural oils keep your lips shiny with this groovy 60s inspired lip gloss by Kiss Naturals with a brightly colored, independently flowing blob of glycerin color in the mixture. Just give the tube a shake and be mesmerized as the two layers move and flow but stay separate. Sounds simple, right?
The Lava Lip Gloss kit includes six tubes, measuring cup, sunflower oil, castor oil, two flavors and three natural glycerin based colors. Enough to create six full lipgloss tubes of choice.
One of my favorite things about Kiss Naturals is the easy to understand instructions. My nine year old was able to create a tube of lava lip gloss just as quickly and efficiently as I was on her own without adult assistance. While this may not be the case with younger children, I do suggest watching over them during the process to ensure that everything runs smoothly at least the first round. This kit does state for 6+ and I believe that this range is fair for this product.
The tube itself is a nice sturdy roller style. The logo is proudly displayed on the front of the gloss. I would like to see the addition of some flavor stickers added to the kit perhaps in the future as after you make the product, it is easy to forget which is which especially since you are products a set of 2 flavors but 3 colors.
The opening of the gloss tube is wide enough to allow the oil mixture to be poured into the tube without creating a mess. I appreciated that Kiss Naturals took the time to ensure that they provided the perfect sized measuring cup with clear to see ounces on the side. This makes the mixing process nearly stressfree for both parent and child.
Once you have the proper amount of each oil into the tube, it is time to decide what color and flavor combination you or your child wishes to create. For this project we went with boysenberry flavor and purple color.
Don’t be alarmed when mixing, the purple does seem more pinkish than purple. I went as far as the maximum suggested color drop use and still found that it was more redish-pink than the color suggested. Perhaps that is because of the oil dilution. The finished product is still just as cool and in my experience the dyes don’t always come out as bright as they should in the natural world.
Give it a shake, shake, shake and you have your very own tube of lava lip gloss.
The finished product is more wet than anything. While I expected it to be overly oily, I was surprised to find that this was not the case. The feel was very pleasant and the taste was subtle. There is no smell to this product that I could tell which is great for those with sensitive noses.
Overall, I was happy with the product from start to finish. The only downside that I found was that after a day or so if left to just sit the product starts to separate the oils and dye. I don’t know why it does, but you can give it a good shake again to recombine.
