|Have you ever heard the song, “This One’s For The Girls” by Martina McBride? I’ve had this song stuck in my head and while I was testing this lip balm, I started singing this song with my own twist! “This is for all you coffee baristas, Pouring coffee just trying to enjoy, a cup, a cup of joe, Wondering when your break is gonna come.” Ok, as you can see, I was being quite silly. This coffee lip balm is perfect for any coffee drinker, whether they classify themselves as a connoisseur, addict, or aficionado.
When I made this lip balm the first time I didn’t use any flavor. The first batch still had the coffee flavor, but it tasted rather flat and one-dimensional. I made the batch again and this time I added the Sugar Kisses and “POW” the coffee flavor was now comparable to an actual cup of coffee. Wait a minute, you are probably asking how the Sugar Kisses enhanced the coffee flavor when it is just a sweetener.
Many times we will use a flavor to accent a flavor already present in our product. Have you ever made a lip balm with Cocoa Butter? If you add a flavor, you can accentuate the chocolate flavor of the Cocoa Butter. This is also true when baking. When making brownies you add vanilla, but you can’t really taste the vanilla in the finished product other than it smooths the chocolate into a fantastic brownie.
You can use the Coffee Flavor Oil will make a strong coffee flavored lip balm. You can use the Sugar Kisses Flavor or Vanilla Banilla Flavor to add a little “sugar and cream” taste to your coffee lip balm. Don’t worry, the vanilla will not be very noticeable unless you use more vanilla to make a vanilla flavored French Roast lip balm. You can even use different flavors to make a flavored cappuccino or latte. I think I want to try using Chocolate Cream as the flavor to make a Mocha Latte Lip Balm.
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients except the Vitamin E Acetate and Sugar Kisses Flavor into your microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the mixture is melted, add the Vitamin E Acetate and Sugar Kisses Flavor. Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.
This lip balm is very firm and glides onto the lips for a long lasting, silky, barely there feeling. I asked Taylor what she thought about this lip balm. We both agree that this lip balm is a perfect lip balm for those who want a lip moisturizer with a silky feel, but don’t want a thick or heavy lip balm with gloss that feels like it is 4 million layers thick. This lip balm is a perfect lip balm for both guys and gals!
I prefer to use the Sugar Kisses flavor with this lip balm to accentuate the coffee with a little bit of sweetness. Using the Coffee Flavor Oil will make a strong coffee flavored lip balm. You can use the Sugar Kisses Flavor or Vanilla Banilla Flavor to add a little sugar and cream to your coffee. You can even use different flavors to make a flavored cappuccino or latte. I think I want to try using Chocolate Cream as the flavor to make a Mocha Latte Lip Balm.
