Create Custom Makeup With This Wonder Balm!

Lately, our entire office has been buzzing about One Love Organics® Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm—an incredible multi-purpose salve included in this month’s Birchbox. When we found out the product could be mixed with mineral powder foundation to create creamy customized colors, we got even more excited!

As product-addicted, exploration enthusiasts we had to put this unique formula to the test. Using some spare makeup lying around the office (and as you can imagine, there are quite a few “spares” on each Birchbox employee’s desk) we started experimenting.

Like pro apothecaries, within minutes we had created 5 smooth custom colors. We just used a concealer brush to mix different powder formulas with a small amount of the balm.

Putting together the Skin Savior with the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Natural Lighting Powder turned the powder into a gorgeous highlighter—perfect for bringing brightness to tired eyes and creating instant cheek bones. Blending the product with theBalm® theBOYS cabanaBOY yielded a rich cream blush. Fusing the product with colorescience pro® sunforgettable® Mineral Sun Protection SPF 30 in medium resulted in a buttery foundation, with an added bonus of built in SPF. By combining the salve with a badly broken stila eyeshadow compact in Kitten, we were even able to bring the discarded shadow back to life!

With just a little more mixing, we even created custom foundations that matched each Birchboxers’ unique skin tone perfectly—we were blown away by the results. We didn’t think it was possible, but we’ve fallen even more in love with the Waterless Skin Savior.

Do you use your Birchbox samples in new and inventive ways?
