Lip Balm - Tubes or Pots?

But pots are so much easier! The problem I had with tubes is that I would fill them and as they hardened they shrunk, showing a hole in the middle of the tube. I know other people suffer from the same thing and have been advised just to pour more over the top once they've hardened. That's just too much effort in my opinion.

Top them off with more base and once it starts to harden hit with a heat gun to meld the original base and the topped off base together, otherwise the topped off base with just fall of when you roll it up.

BTW, I find the tubes much more practical, and yes the pots look nice, especially those English style at MMS:Dbut I prefer to make and sell the tubes. I want the oval tubes next
