hello! i just realized that i haven't posted anything for a few days, which is really unlike me. my apologies. but the other day my lips were really chapped, it was bothering me quite a bit. i don't have a lip exfoliator scrub at home (as much as i'd like to go to lush and grab one). i decided to put together my own simple and fast home-made lip scrub, and it worked like a charm. that is why i decided that i'd like to share it with you beautiful people.
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 or 2 DROPS vanilla extract (or whichever flavour you see fit)
you combine these three ingredients and mix slightly until it all comes together. put into an airtight container or a little twist cap holder(?) from the dollar store and it will be good for up to 2 months! use your finger and take a dab of product on your lips and rotate in circular motions. wipe off any excess with a washcloth, and apply your favourite lip balm immediately after. -i use burt's bee's honey lip balm- works like a charm.
isn't that just too good to be true?! so simple and very effective. i've been using it for the past few days and it works amazing-ly. my lips were so soft and smooth when i woke up the next day. this smells really nice too because of the vanilla! i might eventually buy one of lush's lip scrubs, but i'm content with this recipe for now. i hope some of you will find this useful?!
