With the weird weather we’ve been having lately in Southern California, I decided to take advantage of one of the rainy days and make myself some lip scrub.
You can find a ton of DIY recipes on Pinterest for these, varying in tastes, aromas, textures, etc.
I opted to concoct my own recipe because I didn’t want to have a bunch of leftovers. So this recipe (below) will probably make you enough lip scrub for approximately 4-5 applications.
First let me mention that this lip scrub is completely edible, smells amazing – kind of somewhere between an Orange Dreamcicle and an Orange Julius, and it leaves your lips feeling soft and exfoliated afterwards.
2 teaspoons of organic cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon of grapeseed oil
3-4 drops of vanilla extract
3-4 drops of orange extract
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Once you’ve got your ingredients all blended together, simply apply a small to liberal amount to your lips and rub in a circular motion for about 1-2 minutes. Afterwards either rinse off excess or lick the rest of it off your lips 🙂
Substitutions can be used for the sugar, depending on how course or fine you prefer the grain to be. Some other options include brown sugar, or sugar in the raw. The cane sugar I used falls in the middle in terms of grain size.
Happy scrubbing!! 🙂
