I love keeping my lips soft and smooth, so every once in a while I need to exfoliate them. I really love Lush’s lip scrub, but as it can be quite expensive, I was inspired to make my own! It’s really easy, so I thought I’d share it with you!

YOU WILL NEED:

(click the picture to enlarge)

1. MIX THE SUGAR AND HONEY

IMG_0727

Feel free to adjust the quantities if you want to make more, but make sure you don’t use too little or too much honey, as it could go either too crumbly or too runny.

2. ADD THE OLIVE OIL, FLAVOURING AND COLOURING

IMG_0728

Again, make sure not to add too much if you’re adjusting the quantities. The flavouring and colouring is optional, but I think it adds a nice touch.

3. MIX WELL

IMG_0729

Make sure everything is mixed really well, otherwise it won’t work properly and the colour won’t be even.

4. SPOON INTO A CONTAINER

IMG_0733

You can use old lip scrub containers, or you can buy jars from a craft store.

5. ENJOY

IMG_0730

This lip scrub is edible, so once you’ve finished applying it, you can just lick it off. Remember, it may be edible, but I wouldn’t really recommend eating it by the spoonful!

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post, and I’ll continue to make similar ones in the future!

I received the Shiseido Eye Colour Trio for free after entering a competition on their Facebook page, and I’ve been loving it! It has wonderful pigmentation and it blends wonderfully! I bought The Body Shop’s Passionfruit body butter while out shopping with some of my friends, and I fell in love with it! It tastes mouthwateringly good! I’ve needed a matte eyeshadow palette for a while now, and when I saw this MUA palette, I was so happy! Just like MUA’s other palettes, the pigmentation is wonderful, and the colours are really wearable!
