Not surprisingly, last week’s Hard Lotion DIY Kit Giveaway was a popular one! Congratulations to our winner, Jenny (jennyzepf4@).
Several of you shared some fun ideas in the comments for gift giving with the DIY kit.
- “I have 60 coworkers, 23 of which I work with on a daily basis. I wanted to do something simple and, more importantly, CHEAP for a small tidbit. I think a hard lotion bar and perhaps some homemade lip balm (which I have made and is super easy too!) will be this year’s solution.”
- “I am decorating a table for 6 at our church Ladies Christmas dinner. If I win, I will make them in Christmas shapes and give them as table favors at each place setting.”
- “These would be wonderful teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, or I bet they would ship well for our far away friends and family.”
- “I think they would be great gifts for some of our elderly friends and family who have trouble opening the lids of lotions. My grandma and her roommate would be happy to moisturize their dry hands without a struggle with a lid. They could keep the bars in a slide zip bag.”
- “I like the idea of using these as teachers gifts, stocking stuffers, or even as part of our care packages that we create for a homeless shelter- We usually include books, socks, mittens, etc. and these lotions would go right along with it.”
- ” If I got the giveaway I would use it to make as gifts for my bridesmaids!!!”
I also noticed several comments from people wanting hard lotion for sensitive skin or eczema issues. For me, the hard lotion bars work best on my hands and feet. You simply rub them in (no water needed!) and as you rub, your body temperature warms the lotion. For more sensitive skin, though, you may want to try Renee’s new BeeSilk Junior product.
