Lip Balm Giveaway!

I’m taking a break from the usual simple recipes and useful cooking tips this Wednesday to bring you my first ever Pink Recipe Box giveaway! Today I’m going to be telling you all about my new handmade lip balm business as well as giving you the chance to win one of ten lip balms of your choice!

Free Handmade Lip Balm Giveaway |

Earlier this year, I set up an Etsy store called Make Today Special, where I sell a wide range of handmade lip balms in fabulous flavours and fun designs. To be totally honest, I’m having a bit of trouble getting it off the ground – turns out promoting an Etsy store is way harder than promoting a food blog! – so I decided to host a giveaway in order to spread the word.

I’m incredibly passionate about my handmade lip balm business and I’m so proud of every single lip balm I produce. I strive to make delicious flavours you’ll want to try (like Mimosa, Mocha Latte and Peanut Butter) whilst also creating fun and colourful labels which will really make you stand out from the crowd.

Some of the lip balms are even available in multiple colours, so if (like me) you love pink, I can create a Lemon Cheesecake Flavoured Lip Balm (normally available in yellow) and make it pink, especially for you!

Think you can help get the word out about my handmade lip balm business? If you’re a beauty blogger and would like to write a review about the Make Today Special lip balms, that’s great! Get in touch by sending an email to and we’ll sort something out – I’d love to work with you.

The Giveaway

The lip balm giveaway begins first thing on Wednesday, August 13th 2014 (GMT time) and goes on until first thing Monday, August 25th 2014 (GMT time). I’ll email the winners to let them know and I’ll also announce them on the blog on Wednesday, August 27th 2014. Each winner can choose one of the following lip balms, available in the standard colours:

  • English Toffee
  • Blue Raspberry Slushie
  • Strawberry Milkshake
  • Deluxe Hot Chocolate
  • Gingerbread Men
  • Monkey Farts
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup
  • Chai Tea
  • Peppermint Cream

  • Mint Choc Chip
  • Italian Cappuccino
  • Tangerine Dream
  • Bubblegum
  • Lemon Cheesecake

There are a few more flavours currently available in my Make Today Special Etsy store, but the above are the only ones available to choose from for the giveaway. If you’d like one of the other flavours, you can purchase it from the Etsy store. Here are a few points just to be clear:

  • Ten winners will be chosen in total
  • Each winner will get to choose one lip balm from the list above
  • I’m paying for the lip balm, packaging and shipping, but if the package incurs any charges during shipment, you’ll need to pay for those – I’m not responsible for paying any extra charges or taxes
  • If you win and would like to place an order at the same time, I’ll throw in free shipping – all you’ll pay for is the extra lip balms you order.

I’d love to know – which of the lip balms from the Make Today Special Etsy store is your favourite?


  1. I hope I win because I can’t wait to try one of these lip balms. The only problem is, they all sound great so it will be difficult making a decision.

  2. I found your link over on Favorite Things and came over to see what the giveaway is. I have entered plus I had already Favorited your Etsy shop. and liked on FB. Followed on Twitter too!

    Have a great day!

  3. Wow I don’t think I have ever seen a proper handmade lipbalm! They look fab, etsy can be a difficult place to get biz going (i hand make baby blankets etc and use etsy sometimes). Hope your biz gets off the ground and your a huge success! Stopping by from #magicmoments
