Chapstick Review

I received this product in the mail for free from Smiley360 to review and I'm pretty disappointed. I find the day side to have an unpleasant taste and smell - slightly vanilla and medicinal. It is hard and doesn't apply well to your lips. The formula also caused a burning sensation on my lips which I've never experienced with any other lip balm containing sunscreen. The night side however I had mixed feelings about. It has a great tropical smell and applied smoothly, however I found it to be greasy but not unappealingly so. I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 stars because I only liked 1/2 the product. I will definitely try the Moisture and Renew since I am a huge fan of ChapStick.

One Hour Surprise Mystery Crochet Along

Have an hour to spare? Great... grab some scrap yarn, a yarn needle,and any size hook (preferably on the smaller size but not too small).
Are you ready to get started?


ABBREVIATIONS / REFERENCES
beg = beginch(s) = chain(s)
ch-space = space previously madedc = double crochet
rep = repeatrnd(s) = round(s)
RS = right sidesl st = slip stitch
sp(s) = space(s)


Step 1
With first color, ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring. Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), 2 dc in ring, ch 2, (3 dc in ring, ch 2) 3 times; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 12 dc and 4 ch-2 sps. Fasten off the first color.

Step 2
With RS facing, join the second color with sl st in any ch-2 sp, ch 3, (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same ch-2 sp (corner made), *(3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-2 sp (corner made); rep from * 2 more times; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 24 dc and 4 ch-2 sps. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.


Step 3
Repeat steps 1 & 2 with different coordinating colors 4 more times. You should have 5 ((insert item name here so I don't give it away)) at this time.

Step 4
Sew 5 ((insert shape name here)) together to form a long strip.

Step 5
Cut 6 strands of yarn to about 17 inches in length.

Step 6
Hold strands together and fold in half. With crochet hook, draw fold through center at one end of strip, forming a loop. Pull ends of yarn through this loop. Pull to tighten.


Step 7
Separate strands into 2 groups of 6 strands each. Divide one group into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid, knotting strands at end. Trim remaining strands about 1 in. (2.5 cm) shorter, then braid, knotting strands at end.

Step 8
Will post on our Facebook page [click].




I hope you enjoyed our surprise one hour mystery crochet along!!
