lip-scrub

okay fellow friends and witches, I make this sugar scrub shit that’s basically the bomb. I’m gonna give you the recipe for it because “it makes you feel like a goddess.” -my brother when I made him feel my arm

you’ll need
-1 cup sugar
-½ cup oil (I use olive oil bc it’s good for your skin)
-1 tablespoon of smelly good stuff (vanilla or almond extract kinda smells like cake batter. peppermint extract is good for winter. // you can use essential oils for a glamour spell, but like I said I like to use this on my lips) basically anything you wanna smell like

mix it all up in a bowl. after you shave, rub this stuff all over you until your hands start feeling weird. rinse it off, and shave again with a disposable razor because the oil dulls the blade. (don’t use this on your downstairs because it can cause a yeast infection and no one likes those.) and that’s that! I’m not sure where I learned this recipe from, but thank you so much because it works great. you’ll be soft for like 4 days without lotion.

DIY Lip Scrub

My daughter and I made this lip scrub today that we came across on Pinterest! This is perfect to use before applying your lip stain or even any of your lip products! Exfoliating your lips helps the lip stain go on much easier and much more evenly!

We did use the Vanilla extract in ours and coconut oil instead of Olive oil because for no other reason except that I just love coconut oil :)


WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

small bowl
1 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP honey
1 tsp olive oil or coconut oil
1 small container (I save my eye cream, pigment etc containers and wash them out)
Optional: Vanilla or peppermint extract
Optional: Food coloring (I did pink - pick a practical color as it may stain lips a little)


DIRECTIONS:

Combine honey & sugar in a small bowl.
Add olive or coconut oil & mix well.
If you want it flavored add in a drop of vanilla or peppermint extract
If you’re feeling creative, add 1-2 drops of food coloring (go light on this or it may stain lips)
Put your scrub into a container.


HOW TO USE:

Before bed, rub a small amount of the scrub onto your lips.
Rinse off with water.
Apply lip balm.
Use twice a week for super soft lips!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day so I thought I would share with y'all one of my favourite beauty recipes - a moisturising lip scrub! This scrub is very similar to a scrub you will find at a very popular natural soap company - but at a fraction of the cost! Plus because I can’t give you all a present individually, I’m going to gift you some very cute Valentine’s Day stickers - perfect for decorating your scrub pots (just print them on sticker paper and go crazy!)

INGREDIENTS:

- 3tbs of castor sugar
- 1 ½ tbs carrier oil
- a few drops of flavour oil
- food colouring 

TOOLS:
- mixing bowl
- spoon
- little tubs to hold your balm. These are 10g screw top jars found at the craft store.

A few notes:
CARRIER OILS: Some good carrier oils to use for this project are: Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil or Macadamia Oil. It’s up to you and your budget - I love Sweet Almond Oil because it makes my lips silky smooth. Jojoba is used in a lot of beauty products but can be quite expensive, especially if you’re wanting to make this on the cheap!

FLAVOUR OILS: I bought my flavour oils from the local craft store because they have an excellent range - look in the cake making section! Alternatively you can look in the baking section of your grocery store. Alternatively, you can order flavour oils from places like Bramble Berry who have a huge range. If you’re going to colour your scrub, only use a very small amount of food colouring as you don’t want to stain your lips. I used a lip safe colour from a beauty & soap store. If you’re not sure, then you can leave it out to be on the safe side!

OK, on to the recipe!

Pour your sugar, oil, flavour oil and colouring (optional) in to your bowl.

Start stirring people! Please take note of my very cute spoon.

And… hey presto, you have a scrub! Yep, it’s that easy! 

Spoon your scrub in to your little jars. I wrapped washi tape around mine and stuck some of my Valentine’s stickers on the top:

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this DIY. If you have any questions please ask!

PERFECT LIP SCRUB RECIPE

While experimenting with homemade lip scrub in an attempt to manage the inordinate amount of lip the gods so graciously blessed me with (I like them, I really do, but maintenance is a pain in the ass), I’ve stumbled upon what I’ve found to be the most effective lip scrub, and I haven’t really seen anything similar anywhere else online! (unless I’m looking in the wrong places…)

It’s simple: Equal parts…
Epsom salt
Brown sugar
Organic honey
Coconut oil (or your moisturizer of choice)

Feel free to experiment with the exact proportions depending on how thick you like it to be. Rub it on your lips for about 30-60 seconds, let it sit for a minute or two, and then wash it off with warm water. Apply lipbalm of choice (I find EOS Medicated Tangerine to be the most effective in conjunction, but I know some people dislike the fragrance or are allergic to it). Enjoy your new smooth lips!

(The only downside is that you don’t want to consume it since epsom salt isn’t meant for eating. A little won’t kill you but it tastes like shit.)

Brown Sugar + Coffee Lip/Body Scrub!

Lately with the winter cold (although it’s almost over, yay!) my lips and skin seem to suffer the most. So here’s a quick fix to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin, fix chapped lips, and restore moisture! Plus, this homemade recipe costs relatively nothing if you have most of these things in your cupboards already.  If you make this let me know how it turned out for you!

Here's a tip...

Use lip scrubs. Don’t have crusty lips, that’s not cute.

It takes 30 seconds to do it with your toothbrush if you can’t take 5 minutes of your day to get some honey mixed with sugar to give your lips some love (twice a week).

Legit. Go do it. Now. Make it a habit. You’ll thank yourself later.

DIY Best Lip Scrub

You can easily prepare the best scrub home:

  • Put one tablespoon of sugar and honey in the bowl. Squeeze a slice of lemon (or add a teaspoon of lemon juice) in the bowl. Mix all the ingredients together.
