I’ve been so excited about the response to my original post where I made my own LipSense Remover. It quickly became the top post on my site. As a matter of fact, it became so popular that LipSense distributors and fans wanted to make extras to give out as gifts. All of this is great except those EOS containers can be tricky or expensive to find if you need more than one or two.
In my original post I mentioned trying to fill an old lip balm tube unsuccessfully. In that case I was using one I found in a drawer in my bathroom, not one made and sold for DIY’ers. I figured it was worth one more shot before declaring it a lost cause. Can I just say victory is sweet? I made it work!
To make your own you’ll need:
I’ve only used Neutrogena facial soap, which works perfectly. I have a hunch that any glycerin facial bar will work for this, but I cannot personally confirm that. The lip balm containers I linked are the exact ones you see in this post. At their current price they work out to be $.22 a piece, making them super affordable if you’re planning to make a large quantity.
Cut a 1/4 inch strip of soap off of the bar and chop it into smaller pieces. Microwave at full power for about 15 seconds. This should turn the soap into liquid. Pour the liquid into your lip balm tube. You can use a funnel, but I always pour mine without one and most of the soap ends up inside of the tube.
Put the lid on your tube and carefully place it in the freezer for a few minutes until the soap solidifies.
Don’t try to twist up your LipSense remover straight from the freezer. Once it’s at room temperature it should work easily. If it doesn’t want to budge try one of those grippy kitchen things to twist it up and down. The top will probably be concave, so if you’re giving it as a gift you can slice it down to make it flat.
To remove your LipSense, just run the remover under water, rub it over your lips, then wipe off with a damp tissue or cloth. Repeat if needed. And if you’re needing a new source to fill your LipSense addiction, try my friend Libby’s Facebook group!
