diy lip scrub


Heyo everybody! Since I've been on Roaccutane for about seven weeks now, most of the side effects have kicked into full gear; which includes really dry lips. It also doesn't help that it's freezing cold right now and my skin is just drying out to a pulp. I decided to make a yummy lip scrub that will double as a lovely exfoliant as well as a super hydrating finish. It's really easy and makes a great weekend project!


Ingredients: For mine, I really improvised my way through it because I wasn't really sure how much the container would hold. I decided to add a mix of ingredients to up the amount of benefits! Basically, you'll need some sort of main exfoliant, like fine sugar. Then, you'll need some moisturising base (such as coconut oil and honey) that will also make it moisturising and lastly, food colouring. All you need is a tiny drop and this will just give it a fun colour. Oh! You will also need a little container or jar. Mine was from a cosmetic mask sample; I simply washed it out and it was perfect.


Method: Combine all ingredients until you have the desired consistency. It should be quite sugary in the end but also have an even amount of coconut oil and honey. When you're happy, spoon into the container and compact it in. See, super easy!

I have *really* chap lips in the winter, and since I like to wear really bold lipstick, I have to make sure to take really good care of my lips all winter. Lip scrubs are my favorite! My favorite is a recipe I got from ModCloth- brown sugar, honey and olive oil. It works soooo well!

This one sounds great, too, except I have coconut, so maybe I'll try it with a different oil... ;)

Definitely keeping a note of this, I bought the scrub from lush last year and I can just make it myself looking at the ingredients! I tend to eat it more than use it haha
