  2. julie says:

    Love this idea! I’d like to see some sugar and/or salt body scrubs please.

  3. Jessica says:

    How about a kit to do a mother/daughter, sisters, or girlfriends home spa day?

    Love the idea!

  4. julie says:

    I am now following you on FB

  5. Sue says:

    Don’t know if this registered in the comments on the voting page, but several of the logos have a typo. Shouldn’t it be ‘DIY’ instead of ‘DYI?’

    • Jessica Pepper says:

      What I would like to do in the beauty box is something to make a woman feel good. Whether she be gardening, working, parenting, cooking, something that can make her shine :)

      I am following the new handmade beauty page on facebook :)

      • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

        Thanks for following us, Jessica! We want people to smile and shine when they receive our boxes =)

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Good catch. We saw that too. We’ll make sure that everything is spelled correctly when we make our final decision.

  6. Dawn Lucero says:

    Some of these logos have typos in them. Instead of DIY they say DYI. 4th down on the left and then the circular ones to the right of that.

  7. Da says:

    I’d love to see some cuticle cream variations. Something lightweight that absorbs fast and doesn’t leave your fingers greasy for half an hour.

  8. elly says:

    i’d like to see an easy nail polish kit!

    following on facebook, to start out

  9. Elizabeth says:

    All of the projects you listed above are things I’ve been wanting to try – so far, I’ve just done cold process soap and body butter. The DIY project I most want to try next is a lotion, so that would be great!

    I’m a member of the Soap Crafting Club, and have been having so much fun with the projects and all the interaction with other club members – will there be a place to share and help each other? I think that would be helpful for those of us who haven’t ever tried a project like whatever the project of the month is. :)

    (I’m following on Facebook.)

    • Cynthia weems says:

      Yes i’d love to join a group of people that do DIY projects and help each other out, I have no other person in my area that I can talk to about my adventures that “gets it” lol

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Hi Elizabeth. We’re definitely on the same page. We would love Handmade Beauty Box members to be able to connect with each other and share their projects and project variations.

      P.S. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Soap Crafting Club =)

  10. Debbie says:

    Love to see sugar scrubs, and lotions.

  11. Debby says:

    This is a great idea! I’d love scrubs, lotions, and balms!

  12. Jessica Pepper says:

    Awesome designs! Keep up the good work! Hope I win, it would really make things better around here :)

  16. Cynthia weems says:

    Well I am trying to consider simple and cute and something I would use, as a first timer I will say melt and pour, sugar scrub, lib balm or lip tint,i have yet to try making nail polish or lotion (which i am making tomorrow) but those seem real easy compared to cp or hot process soap :) I find a lot of people that are not Soap Makers or don’t understand it get scared or shy away from lye. for for first timers small steps of awesome simple small projects would go well, and doing this is very fun that is where I got hooked and can’t go back! Unless my hands stop working from old age I will keep making all that I make now and more-ok I will stop now I get so excited when I talk,type or think about my projects or the next one :)

  17. Pooja says:

    Maybe a project to make menthol/ pain relief balm, Mineral makeup kit, face mask ( lush type) , hair oil, would also love if you have a monthly CP soap subscription too:)

  18. Beth says:

    Melt & pour sugar scrub cubes, nail polish and any kind of spa treatment. :)

  19. Andrea s says:

    Oh how fun is this! I would love to see makeup in the box along with maybe some sort of do it yourself cleaners. I love love love anything for the bathtub!

  20. Valkyrie says:

    Awesome idea, nail polish,lip balms, or hand salves would be a great place to start, and get people hooked.

  21. I’d like to see mineral eyeshadow, nail polish, or novelty glycerin soaps.. like bacon-shaped. Haha! Totally kidding, or am I? Maybe foaming scrubs.

  22. MelodyJ says:

    Something simple would be bath salts, foot soaks, lip balms and body scrubs.

  23. Loralie McGuirk says:

    I would love to see a body butter/balm or solid bubble bath in the box

  24. Dale says:

    Here are a few ideas :-)
    **Bath fizzies and bath bombs, perhaps some that could be shaped by hand so they look like snowballs (for a pre-holiday DIY box maybe?)
    **How about a lotion which could be stored in a bottle until needed, and then could be mixed with water at time of use, to soak fingertips and soften cuticles before doing a manicure.
    **An exfoliating scrub for the face, and a toner to sooth the skin afterward. Perhaps it could come with different essential oils for the toner, depending on whether it’s for oily or dry skin.
    **A simple paper-making box with some organic elements (dry petals, herbs, leaves) to include in the paper, to make beautiful paper wrappers for soap or lotions.

  25. Barb Russell says:

    I would love to make lipstick and/or nail polish.

  26. Barb Russell says:

    I would like to make lipstick and nail polish.

  27. VENI KOMNINIDOU says:

    Body lotions, lip products, nail polishes!

  28. Mia J. says:

    This sounds like a great subscription~ as a newbie I’d definitely be excited to try my hand at things to find out what I like making the most and what I’m good at making! I’d love to see bath bombs and facial masks in your boxes.

  29. Marleny says:

    I would love to see a lotion kit, face mask, nail polish.

  30. aiko ruiz says:

    It would probably be good to send some supplies to make soap for men. I think a lot of people are hesitant to buy a large bulk to make a big loaf because they are unsure of the sales outcome. So if they are able to try and test it out first, people can see how well it does in the market.

  31. Valeri K. says:

    I would love to see lotion bars, bath truffles, and some melt and pour soap projects. I followed on all social media accounts.

  32. Rae Boileau says:

    I would love to make solid perfumes, whipped lotion, lipsticks, scented nail polish, spa supplies (face masks, etc.), and melt and pour soaps with pretty packaging. I’m following on Facebook and Pinterest with the name displayed here.

  33. Jen K says:

    Mineral eye shadow, lip balm and sugar lip scrub would be cool.

  34. Cathy says:

    wow there are some great ideas on here! I would love to see mineral makeup, cuticle cream (not oil) and products for home like candles, tarts, and garbage disposal fresheners. Oh and room sprays. Ok my house doesn’t stink- but I do live with two kids and two cats so the fresher the better!

    And I liked you on FB with Cathy de Rivas
    and Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/tweeti

  35. Amanda Levin says:

    What about some simple clay masks? Or mineral make up?? Sounds like a really fun project!!

  36. kelila says:

    Would love to see either a project for lipbalms or lotions ! I wanted to make lotions but I don’t have the material here so it would be a great idea !

  37. Annette says:

    What a great idea, having read all the other comments I can’t think of a new project but do like the idea of mineral make up (following on fb)

  38. Paula says:

    I would like to see for the first 12 months ” everything a girl could want in her makeUp bag” such as body butter bar, sugar scrub, make up, nail polish, lip balm, perfume etc.. so when the year is done we have made everything a crafty girl could want in her makeup bag.
    Then for a special Christmas edition “12 days of Christmas” this would be all about special gifts to design and give to others.
    The following year leading up to spring could be a special diy projects for crafts for the home like cleaning products and scented wax melts. To get ready for spring.
    Anyways, that’s some of my ideas. Hope it helps :-)

  39. Marilena says:

    Excellent idea. I know you do not ship to Greece. Do the same regulations apply to the subscription box as well?

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Unfortunately, yes. We are not able to ship to Greece =(

      • Marilena says:

        Thank you. Hope things will change someday and we will be able to enjoy your beautiful products. I can only find some of your fragrances here in Greece and I just love them.

  40. Paula Johnson says:

    I would like to see during the first 12 months ” Everything a crafty girl could want in her makeup bag” such as lotion bars, scubs, nail polish, lip balm, perfume etc.. that way at the end of the 12 months you have everything you need in your makeup bag.
    Then for a special holiday edition “12 days of Christmas” which would be all about personal gifts for others for the holidays.
    Then after the new year would be all about the home and getting ready for spring. Could have cleaning items as well as little scented wax tarts. :-)

  41. Erin Tietz says:

    A few things I would like to see…different scent samplings each month, as there’s such a broad selection and it’s hard to choose without smelling it first. It would also be fun to see colorful projects that kids would enjoy helping with, maybe rainbow colored m&p soap? My kids would get a kick out of that. I would also love to try my hand at lip balms & chapstick too!

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  42. Paula Johnson says:

    Sorry about the double post all. I didn’t see my original comment so posted again. My bad. Have a great weekend :)

  43. Margaret says:

    There are many great product ideas. Body butters and lotion bars would be good first kits. Simple and non threatening for first timers. My suggestion would be to include cute packaging in the kits for products made…it’s all about the look!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Yep. It’s all about the details. Cute packaging and labels can really make a project POP!

  44. Jill says:

    I love making soap, but there are a bunch of other things I would like to try making. So having a little package delivered with just what I would need sounds awesome! I would like nail polish, melt and pour soap or lip balm kits.
    PS I’m following you on instagram.

  46. Rebecca F says:

    Nail polish, eye shadow, lip balm

  47. Beth says:

    Face and hair masks, shampoo bars, dry shampoo the possibilities are endless. great idea

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      The possibilities ARE endless. I’m having so much fun reading everyone’s suggestions. I like the idea of a hair theme.

  48. Imagene Farmer (Betsy Gundersen) says:

    Love this idea! I love surprises and love them even more when I can make something with them!

    • Imagene Farmer (Betsy Gundersen) says:

      And I love lotions and soaps…I usually do cold process so I wouldn’t mind trying out melt and pour to see how that works.

  49. Robin says:

    I’d like to see DIY for a very nourishing lipstick included.

  50. Lesli says:

    The first thing I ever made was a lotion bar. They’re simple, versatile, require no special tools, and can be made with oils on hand (olive, sunflower, coconut) or luxury oils like argan. They’re natural, and smell good with no added scent, or can take FOs or EOs. Want something vegan? Sub candelilla wax for the beeswax. No preservatives are required, and unless you scorch the oil or set the wax on fire, you can’t mess them up. And everything that goes into them can be used down the line in another project, including the mold.

    I’m following on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: Avital’s Apiaries (@billionsofbees on Twitter)

    Thanks! Great idea!

  51. Lisa H says:

    Awesome idea.
    Suggestion: fix the typos
    Logos that catch my eye:
    1st left hand side circular with white off white lettering
    Top left right side love the antique look
    4th down in the left
    I do not think any of them should include fb, twitter icons. Why waste space on those. Focus on promoting you!
    Ideas for boxes:

    Nailpolish
    Bathbombs / Fizzes
    Lotion
    Body butter
    Eye serum
    Face masks
    Hair treatment
    Scrubs
    Polishes

    * How about every month their is a event like father day, the month prior focuses on a gift for men. Like shave soap or after shave lotion? Mothers day foot scrub

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Thank you for your comments on the logos. I agree, the social media buttons should be somewhere on the site and not on the main logo.

  52. Pamela says:

    I would like to see facial products. I have a teenager whom I’m trying to formulate various facial bars, shampoos, and masks for to help with teenage skin problems.

  53. Linette Guzman says:

    I would love to see…body butters, lotions, lip balms, body scrubs.
    Oh the possibilities are endless. I’ve seen so many recipes I’ve wanted to
    Try but, couldn’t order everything for them. I’m so excited!! I’ve liked your
    Facebook page and I am following your Pinterest page under the name Linette
    Guzman.

  54. Amanda G says:

    I would love to see body scrubs and clay masks!

  55. Bonnie Johnson says:

    I would like to see a solid shampoo bar.

  56. What about an evening wind down kit: candle, bath fizzie, bed time lotion?

  57. Katie S. says:

    I’d love to see some lotions or maybe bath bombs. :-)

  58. Molly Lee says:

    I’d love to learn how to make lotions! This project intimidates me…. Other fun projects would include flavored and tinted lip balms/glosses, mineral make up and lipstick. I already do soap, but a kit or two with some interesting technique (salt bars, a particular swirl, etc) would be awesome. Thanks!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Lotions are so much fun to make and super easy once you get a recipe under your belt. Thanks for the suggestions. Lotions are on our list =)

  59. Diane L. says:

    I would like to see a rosemary mint shampoo, a facial, and a makeup remover.

  60. Debbie Eldridge says:

    I followed and liked your page on facebook. I think this is an awesome idea, and I look forward to seeing what is offered. I think melt and pour projects will be great in this, just use clamshells for molds or the like. Scrub cubes, scrubs, balms and butters, lip balms – the suggestions are pretty much endless. They would need to be simpler projects that don’t require excessive equipment, but overall, great idea. You could also offer “refill” kits for projects people enjoyed on that scale. A friend of mine and I did that for syndet shampoo and conditioner bars for people who wanted to make their own but not on a production scale. Good luck!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Yes. Projects that are easy to tackle without all of the fancy equipment. That’s exactly what we’re going for. Same page =)

  61. Angie Castro says:

    I would love to see cuticle balms and body butters!

    (I am following on Facebook)

  62. I would love to see bath fizzies/bombs/massage treatments–Pamper me Up…Box…to make and share with my special stressed friends that need to be pampered, most urgently…
    thank you and I wish you the very best with the new website :)
    lisa

  63. Lena says:

    It would be great if every month had a theme and that each month had 3 items to make (incase you don’t like one) for example one month could be exfoliating month. With items to make a body scrub, lip scrub, face scrub. another month could be hair month with a shampoo, conditioner, and spray of some sort. It’s good to match the kit with the season, people tend to have dry skin in the winter so a lotion, lotion bar, and exfoliant is great in the winter. great idea with the box, I think it might sell better at the 19.99/ mo price point.

  64. shelly s says:

    I’d love to make a sunscreen. Very cool idea!

  65. Lena says:

    or maybe every several levels of options per month
    19.99, 29.99, or 39.99!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      This would be a little more realistic since shipping is included in the price of the box. Thank you for your thoughtful ideas =)

  66. Rebecca says:

    I’d love to see whipped body butters in winter as well as lotion kits. I am following all social media.

  67. Emily says:

    Interesting idea!

    Bubble bars & bath truffles, definitely

  68. KeMira says:

    Id love to see bath fizzie kits and lotion kits! Id also like to second Lena’s idea of the different price levels….. :)

  69. Crystal says:

    I would like to see bath fizzies, lip balms, even nail polish. Neat idea!

  70. Rhiannon says:

    I really liked the mosaic soap you featured in your “Roman holiday” post. I would really enjoy receiving the little tiles and trying m&p for the first time like that.
    I would also love to try bath bombs, nail polish and mineral makeup. Everything really, I’m excited lol

    Following the handmade beauty box on Instagram, username: 1dankprincess
    Keep up the great work!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Including finished soap in a box is a new and interesting idea. My wheels are turning…

      Thanks for following our new social media accounts!

  71. Amanda says:

    I’d love to see a sugar/salt scrub.

  72. Lori says:

    I’d love to see beginner, intermediate, and advanced subscription kits. Something easy for anyone to learn would be lip balms. Maybe imbedding for intermediate, and something like lotion for advanced. Shampoo bars, body butters, exfoliating soaps, sugar or salt scrubs are good ideas too. Can’t wait to see what you guys come out with!

  73. Fatima says:

    I would love to see solid perfume, or any of the pedicure products. I followed on Pinterest (Because Beautiful Art & Design)

  74. I would love to see scrubs and body butters! Everyone loves them, and thinks they’re more complicated than they are. I’ve e already referred several friends who will subscribe to this!!

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Thank you for the referrals, Dawnia! Butters and scrubs are so much fun – wouldn’t it be great to show your friends how easy they are to make yourself?

  75. Renee says:

    GREAT idea! Bath bombs, sugar scrub, or a travel candle would be awesome first editions.

  76. Erin Hall says:

    I would love to learn how to make soaps, lotions, and other bath essentials. I am a beginner so the instructions would need to be very simple, at least until I have picked up the basics. It would be nice to have the option to chose a level beginner, moderate, advanced, master. Or a year of beauty with 3 months of increasing complexity. Jan- Mar beginner, Apr-June moderate, July-Sept advanced, Oct-Dec Master. Just a thought, either way the beauty boxes are a wonderful idea.

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      This is the best brainstorm session ever! There have been a couple other comments suggesting levels. There might be something to this =)

  77. Samantha says:

    What a great idea! I would love to see a candle making kit or some all natural beauty products. Can’t wait!

  78. Sara says:

    I love all these ideas. I’m a really big lip gloss fan, so I think an easy lip gloss would be fun!

  79. I think the ingredients to make a small set of mineral eye shadows or blushes would be a great idea. Eye shadows are quick, fun, and with an adjustment in pigments, can be customized into a lot of colors.

    I follow you on all social media, but the easiest to find me would be on twitter @lafemmeknitkita.

    Good luck with this! Such a great combo of subscription and crafting services!

  81. Sara says:

    I would love to learn how to make lotion and, also, a leave in hair serum for the frizzies :)

  82. Sarah Phillips Clark says:

    I’d like to see a light DIY lotion for those of us who DON’T have dry skin.
    I followed on Facebook and Pinterest with the user name I listed for this comment. :)

  83. Paula Burns says:

    I’d like to see lipstick making kits and nail polish making kits.

  84. Jeanette W says:

    I’d love a homemade deodorant and soaps.

  85. Mindy says:

    I’d love spa day kit, themed nail polish kit, lip balm, maybe a shampoo/conditioner set but an emulsified sugar scrub would be great too.

    I’m thinking things that could easily double as gifts as well – scrubs, balms, skincare…

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Gift giving is a great angle. Who doesn’t like receiving handmade lotions and scrubs?

  88. Sharee Roggen says:

    Liquid hand soap, foot scrubs, deodorant, lip gloss, just about anything would be awesome.

  90. Allie says:

    This is hard, because there are soooo many projects that I would love to have shipped to my door! If I had to pick one, and just one, I would want something that I will actually use that isn’t too involved but something that is still out of the ordinary.

    I think for me it would be a luxurious, silky lotion bar, complete with push tube for ease of use. I still remember my first lotion bar. It had cocoa butter and beeswax in it, and it smelled heavenly!! I still haven’t actually made lotion bars, because as nice as this first one was (a gift from my mother), it was in a metal tin and made a bit of a mess when it got soft in the summer and I just can’t justify buying and shipping a push tube for a lotion bar. But a project, just for me, shipped to my door, with beeswax, cocoa butter, maybe an exotic oil and a cute label on waterproof stock to complete my very own lotion bar would be awesome. It would be like someone tapped into the memory of this lotion bar and gave me the tools to recreate it, only better :)

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Sounds like a luxurious recipe that you simply must recreate. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Allie says:

      Also (and it may be too late for this part because I just realized it) but I’ve followed on Facebook and Pinterest (Alison Dube) and Twitter and Instagram (alliedoobs) :)

  91. Candace says:

    Oh gosh, there are so many things I want to make. I’d love to see some DIY beauty thrown in there like nail polish and eye shadow. I’d also love to see something like emulsified sugar scrubs or foot and hand scrubs in the box.

    I found Brambleberry on Twitter. My username is @CandaceMcCarty

  92. Kelly says:

    I would love to see some lip balms, solid lotion bars, and nail polish!

  100. Amy Nelson says:

    Body butters, sugar or salt scrubs, nail polish or mineral make up would be awesome!

  101. Mother and child kits would be great. Lotion for mum, simple mp for the kiddo for example. Masques and other facial stuff are also great.

    Why only have 1 option for pricing? An addition or 2 maybe? So people can choose which one suits their pocket best. Is this going to be available internationally?

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      We’re currently discussing the pricing and pricing options. Great minds think alike =)

      Unfortunately, boxes will not be available for international shipping. At least not when we first launch the site.

    There have been many great suggestions here. I like the mother-child project suggestions too.Seasonal melt and pour projects would be fun! (flowers, Easter eggs, snowflakes).

    Projects that enable great, shared experiences between family and friends are a win-win I think. With that in mind, easy-level projects like simple melt and pour, sugar scrubs, masks and nail polish kits would all be great to do with family and friends.

    P.S.
    I read a comment above where the person said she didn’t like the social media icons in the logo. I don’t think that the icons are part of the logo. A lot of times graphic designers will throw in social media buttons as part of the total package they designed :)

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Thank you for the suggestions. I love the seasonal themes as well. And I think you’re right regarding the social media icons on the logo – I actually like that they included them. Nice to see the potential.

  103. Becca Sheffler says:

    I’d love to see a great cuticle cream. Also, something with sunblock in it because I hate the way commercial sunscreen feels and smells.

    I would love to see lip products, lotion bars, m&p soaps! I also follow on Facebook

  105. Sue Gordon says:

    I’d like to see a nice face lotion with natural sunscreen. I’d like to see an emphasis on natural crafts and recipies. Deoderant would be great too. I’m looking for natural personal care stuff. But cute stuff too, like France bath bomb or soap projects. I’m so excited, what a great idea to have a subscription surprise project delivered to me every month,

  106. amanda knotts says:

    I love this idea, not keen on the name. There is already a beauty box subscription but for sample products. I hope this doesnt cause a prob!

  107. Alicia Bryant says:

    I would like to get an eyeshadow kit that has options to blend a few different colors.

  108. Katie W says:

    I think it would be super fun to have a DIY products for men box! It’s a highly overlooked area of beauty products.

  109. Carly says:

    Neat! I would love to see a shaving cream one – I’ve never been able to get my shaving cream to turn out well. A sugar scrub vs salt scrub one would be awesome as well! An aftershave box would be cool too. Samller versions of any of the soap queen tutorials, so you don’t end up with five pounds of something, but just one or two bars to see if you like it.

    PS – I followed this on Facebook under MCTS Lanners! :)

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Haha! I know what you mean. I always end up making way too much soap – but my friends and family love me for it =)

  110. Jeanne Rice says:

    I would love to see a winter lotion, liquid shampoo and hair mask or moisturizing treatment. I’m following on Facebook (Jeanne rice) and twitter (kyla). Thanks for the chance to win!

  111. Nanette Vogler says:

    Would love simply to see that each month there is ample supply to make and give some away, along with nice packaging….even labels?

  112. Dounia says:

    I’d like to see arrangement diys!!
    Thx for the contest!!

  113. I would like to get an aromatherapy mixing box to come up with new scents to use. I could then order larger quantities to use with my other bath products.

  114. cecilia says:

    Hi,

    i would like to receive a project that I could do with my 11 year old girl. would like to include her in my projects.
    Also keep trying the wonderful soap making ideas that are available in the soap queen blog, very easy, very simply, very clear and juts beautiful. I liked the Roman week projects also will like to see more specific themes such as Brazil, Mexican or US themes..will be interesting to use native herbs, or clay, essential oils, butters, etc.

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Easy and fool-proof projects with clear instructions is our main goal. We want our boxes to be fun and easy for everyone!

  115. AnnaRose says:

    Love this idea! maybe so a sea salt spray for your hair?! and at one pout I would love for BB to do a birch box type thing with fragrances, colors, and other fun ingredients (but mainly FOs!;) )

  116. Sandra Bacho says:

    Thank you so much for allowing us to participate and giving us a chance to win this great prize! I would love to see lotion bars as one of the projects.

  117. Karen Bliss says:

    Nail polish, hair oils, natural hair care, foot scrubs, lip balms. I look forward to the launch! Good luck!

  118. Sharon says:

    So far I’ve only made CP soap, but so many interesting suggestions posted makes me think I need to expand my skills. Lotion bars and lotions sound interesting.

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      It has been so fun for me to read all of the suggestions. I’m getting some great ideas too!

  119. Jackie R. says:

    I would like to see (obviously) soap, of course, but that one is a given. Beauty items, made naturally, such as lotion bars, shampoos even. I think that sort of thing would be fun and not something I would necessarily buy right out on my own.

  120. Charity says:

    I’ve been making my own eye shadow ever since you started carrying mineral makeup supplies. It’s so easy! I think that would be a great thing to include.

    I followed/liked on Facebook (Charity Lenfest) and Instagram (clenfest).

  121. JenZ says:

    I’d love a kit to make tinted, flavored lip balm!

  122. Sharlene says:

    Is this only for USA? Will it be available for International? I’m in Canada.

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      Unfortunately, we won’t be shipping internationally when we launch the website. We’re working out those details now.

  123. Marcy says:

    You guys always have great tutorials. I would like to see things like mosquito repellant (lotion/spray/candle), suncreen, perfume, nail polish, facial toner/lotion/exfoliant, just a nice variety like you normally have.

    I liked you in Instagram under the username KikusCreations.

  124. Tracy V says:

    Anything that help sooth and smooth the skin like body butters and salt/sugar scrubs.

  125. Sadia Nazier says:

    Will beauty box be made available to international buyers?

  132. Michele says:

    Love the idea! I would love to see make-up and hair care like shampoo, conditioners or treatments.

  133. Christine says:

    I’d like to see a bath fizzy project – something pretty – maybe not as hard as a cupcake, but not just a round blob either :)

    • Courtney from Handmade Beauty Box says:

      I think we can come up with something in between a cupcake and a round blob. That made me laugh =)

  134. Laura Gieseking says:

    I am following your new page on Facebook! I would love to see body butters, body sprays, solid perfumes, salt/sugar scrubs, flavored lip gloss, lotions, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, even candles.

  136. Janelle says:

    What a fabulous idea! I would love to see lotion bars, hair conditioner, and deodorant. M&P would be fun, too. I only do CP, so this would be a great opportunity to try something new!

  137. Courtney says:

    Definitely need to have a good lip balm (particularly in the little tins like say a lavender peppermint one) in the rotation! And frankenpolish!

  138. Deb V says:

    Solid perfume is something I’ve always considered trying and have dabbled in already.

  139. Leah says:

    I would like to see ingredients for cold process recipes in the box.

    Thanks!

    I’d love to try making hair conditioner bars! I followed on facebook!

  141. Gwen says:

    Wow, what a great idea! BeautyBox sounds like so much fun. I’m not sure I can add any new ideas, so many others are thinking just what I’m thinking. I make CP soap, so specialty soaps are always good. I love the spa ideas (bath truffles, scrubs, masks, lotions, hair products) and the homemade makeup ideas (nail polish, lipstick, eyeshadow, etc). As a crafty mom, I like involing my daughter as much as possible; so kid-friendly is also great. Also, thinking about the time it takes would be good. I love so many of your gorgeous, but complex projects (like the Roman mosaic soap or sparkly bath cupcakes). However, I know that as a busy mom with a full-time job, it would be really hard to carve out the time it takes to make such an intricate project. I drool over the idea of them (they’re SOOO pretty), but I know that really, it just ain’t happening. I imagine a lot of other crafty folks are in the same boat as me. Something that takes no more than 60 minutes to make would be ideal.

  142. Fantastic idea!
    A simply perfume kits would be great and I would love to see a “All in One Scrub” that scrubs, cleanses, and is a great moisturize! What a time saver!

  143. Kim says:

    How about bath teas or bath bombs? Both are great to give as gifts and can be done with a group of folks or individually. I think this would be a great project to do with folks who are in assisted living or shut in.

  144. Alyssa Woodward says:

    Voted and am following on Facebook! I would love to do a winter-time lip balm. Chapped lips are the antithesis of beauty!

  145. Lisa Christiansen says:

    Would love to see whipped butters – using shea, mango, etc. so could try different butters in combination – and salt scrubs would be great. After the summer, I’m sure everyone will be wanting to exfoliate and then moisturize! Somethings that are easy enough for beginners BUT not so simple that a more experienced crafter would be disappointed.

    Hard to have ideas that work for all. :)

  146. I actually use very few beauty products aside from basics like soap, face creams, lotions, lip balm, lipstick, and face powder. One thing I wouldn’t mind seeing (if it’s not already on your schedule) is concealer. I’d love to be able to concoct a shade that actually matches my skin tone.

    I was also wondering how many of the product each kit makes. I would love kits that make 6 or 7 final products so that I can give some away for Christmas, hostess, or birthday gifts.

    Thank you!

  147. I Liked the page on Facebook using my Teresa Robeson account. Thanks!

  148. Carol N says:

    I have been wanting to try making mineral makeup so I hope that is included in a box. Also I would love to make hair products. I make CP soap, but I want to expand beyond that. Followed on Facebook

  149. Heather says:

    Body Butters!!!!!! And mineral makeup :)

  150. Sophie says:

    I love beauty subscrition bag i have Ipsy and i love every mid month for getting new product but i’m crazy for D.I.Y project this is great idea i just hope it will be available at some point in Canada

  151. Patricia B says:

    This is such an amazing idea! I’m following you on Facebook and Pinterest. Since I am new to this type of DIY, I would love to see sugar scrubs, body butters, flavored lip balms and maybe a cold process soap. Love it!! Thank you.

  153. Erin says:

    How about a luminizer with gold sparkle mica, castor, sweet almond oil and beeswax. It should be just soft enough to leave a light gold glow on your face! They are pretty popular to buy, and I would love to make one:)

  154. I would love to see lip balm! Even as someone who makes lip balms, sometimes they turn out great, and sometimes not so much. They are simple to start with, but the possibilities are endless to make fun varieties! And the kiddos in your life can have fun making them too! I liked on Facebook! I can’t wait to see what’s next!

  155. My first vote is for nail polish. That’s mainly because that’s what I would be most excited to make!

    A super easy diy project would be a facial mud mask. You could have a small bottle of rose water and maybe one with glycerin (to mix with) and bags of different clays and fruit powders…with a little sheet that when you answered certain questions (dry or oily) (breakouts or redness) the answer you picked decided which ingredient to mix together. It could be a mini spa party. Endless opportunities. Then you could have a #hashtag for everyone to take a pic and post their masked face on Instagram! That would be fun to look through!!

  159. Olivia says:

    Love this idea! What I’d like to see is massage oil candles in travel tins, with maybe some good beginner instructions on a few basic massage techniques. Mineral eyeshadow in pretty colors (think shimmery mica!) would be amazing too.

  160. Amanda says:

    I think it’d be fun to learn to make goat’s milk lotions and products for the face(soaps and lotions) that are able to be customized to suit different skin types.

    That being said I don’t know that I like not knowing what I’d be getting every month. Especially when it comes to fragrance as I am very picky when it comes to them and I have family members who are sensitive to certain smells.

    I started following on Pinterest. :-)

  165. Lois Howe says:

    I just voted & love the logo ideas!

    I would think something awesome to see would be a toothpaste recipe, or other health-related item ❤️ Laundry soap, even. I’m astounded at how quickly my family’s eczema cleared up once I started making my own!

  166. Marilee says:

    I would love to see so many of the things people have already recommended. Massage oil candles would be awesome, mineral eye shadows, small M&P project, lipstick, shave bars…. so many possibilities!

  167. I would love to see hair products, leave in conditioner, homemade gel, etc! Something that would not look like there is a lot of product in the hair!

  168. Allison says:

    This is a great idea! I would like to see candle, mp soap, rebatch soap, shaving cream, and even makeup projects! I’ll love to see how this all turns out!

  169. Sly says:

    I love the soaps, lotions, & hair conditioner recipes you have posted.
    What I really need (& want) is some facial lotion/ cream recipes…a day cream and a night cream recipe?
    Thanks so much!!!
