Homemade Cranberry Lip Gloss

Photo Credit: Thinkstock

For a deliciously kissable (and practically edible) kisser, check out this yummy recipe for homemade cranberry lip gloss by Cosmetics Diary.

It's loaded with natural emollients and anti-oxidants and it's good enough to eat!
(sans the optional non-petroleum jelly)

Homemade Cranberry Lip Gloss

10 fresh cranberries
1 tbsp almond oil
1 tsp plain (soy) yogurt
1 tsp honey - can be replaced with agave or maple syrup
1 tsp non-petroleum jelly like this one
(optional for shine)


Mix everything in a microwavable or heat-resistant container. Heat in a microwave or water bath until the mixture begins to boil (1-2 minutes in microwave).

Stir well and gently mash the berries and let sit for five minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove all the cranberry pieces. Stir and allow to cool completely. Spoon into a clean container.

To use, just spread on lips and pucker up!
