So for today's post I am going to show you the lip scrubs that I made and I'm going to tell you what I used to make them and where I got the recipe from. I've heard of lip scrubs a couple of different times but have never tried one myself, after reading a blog post about how smooth it makes your lips I decided to buy one but decided they were quite expensive for small pots. I remembered seeing some blog posts about making your own lip scrub so thought I'd have a go!
I decided to make two different lip scrubs as I saw many different recipes and didn't know what one would be best!
The pictures above show what I used to make both of the different lip scrubs, I also used spoons but haven't included them in the pictures. I used two separate recipes but didn't follow them exactly and mine turned out completely fine so feel free to actually create your own recipe!
The two recipes I used are from here and here. For the first recipe (brown sugar) I used coconut milk instead of oil and it worked fine but it was watery which meant you need to use more of the other ingredients! The second recipe (white sugar) I added about two teaspoons of lemon juice to give it a bit of a flavour.
Once I had put the lip scrub into the pots I noticed that it was quite runny so I put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes and after taking them out they are the perfect consistency!
Overall both the lip scrubs were extremely easy to make and I definitely would recommend trying them! I have tried both and after using them my lips are extremely smooth and I know I will definitely use these all the time! My favourite out of the two is the brown sugar one as brown sugar is thicker than the white sugar but both of the lip scrubs taste absolutely AMAZING and because of what ingredients are in it they are actually edible so you don't have to worry about any product getting into your mouth!
Thanks for reading!
