DIY Lip Scrubbies – Bubblegum & Chocolate

15 Jul

IMG_1388IMG_1403 For all you lipstick addicts, here are a couple of DIY lip scrubs that can help you exfoliate, and prep your puckers. I made two lip scrubs this weekend. I made one inspired by bubblegum, and one inspired by my ardent love for chocolate. These are cheaper than store bought lip exfoliators and come minus many of the chemicals you shouldn’t be applying on your lips. They also come packed with the gooness of moisturization and healing properties.

Here is what you need for the Bubblegum lip scrub

6 tbsp of caster sugar

3 drops of vitamin E oil

1 tsp of your favorite strawberry lip salve or balm

1 tsp of sweet almond oil

3 tsp of olive oil

2 drops of grapefruit extract

 

 

To make your scrub, mix all the wet ingredients together, and then add the caster sugar. Mix this well and put it into a small airtight container. You can label and decorate the container if you want to give the lip scrub to someone as a gift.

Here is what you need for the Chocolate lip scrub

6 tbsp of brown sugar

3 drops of vitamin E oil

1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp of coffe powder (instant or a chicory blend)

3 tbsp of coconut oil ( you could use olive oil instead of coconut)

To make your scrub, mix all the dry ingredients together, and then add the coconut and Vitamin E oil. Mix this well, and put it into a small airtight container. You can label and decorate the container if you want to give the lip scrub to someone as a gift.

To get smooth, hydrated lips

Capture

  • Scoop a little of your lipscrub into your palm.
  • Use your index finger to scrub this mixture onto your lips for 15 to 20 seconds. Then leave it on your lips and smack your lips for 5 to 10 seconds.
  • Wipe the scrub off with a wet tissue or wash it off with some water.
  • Pat your lips dry.
  • Immediately follow this process up with a smacking of lip balm or a drop of coconut oil.

And there you have it, perfectly hydrated lips that compliment lipstick, lipgloss and your smile 🙂

 

I hope you try to make these scrubbies. If you do, I’d like to know what you think of them.

Have you or do you make your own lip scrub? I’d like to know how you make yours. Leave me a comment if you already have a blog post on a lip scrub and I will check it out.

 

Till later my lovelies xo

      Yea, I have heard about the Lush ones but I have never used them. I like these. They are easy on the pocket and help me save my pennies for more important stuff, like lipsticks 😀
