Makeup Tip Monday- DIY Lip Scrub!

Lately I step outside and with one gush of wind my lips are dry and flaky.  I don't know about you, but my lipstick does NOT look so good laying on top of flaky lips.  If you live anywhere that has snow right now, you know what I'm talking about.  This winter has been super fun for any sledding or skiing you have planned but your skin is not on the good end of this bitter cold deal!  Personally, my lips have taken the biggest beating.  And I can't have shredded coconut looking lips with Valentines Day right around the corner!  I need my red and pink lipsticks to look perfect and I'd prefer to not scratch my Valentine with gnarly lips!  The remedy is a great lip scrub...  

If you don't have 10 minutes to spare and have some extra cash you could try the Sugar Lip Polish by Fresh.

OOoorrr... You could MAKE YOUR OWN!!!

What you'll need:

1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil, melted
1 Tbsp of Honey
2 Tbsp of Sugar in the Raw (I like it's coarser texture, but you could just use regular sugar)

Mix it all up into a paste consistency
Dampen your lips
Scrub! Scrub! Scrub! (about 30 seconds)
Try not to eat it (even though it's pretty yummy haha)
Rinse off and pat dry
Apply your favorite lip treatment

The honey and coconut oil will grab and trap moisture into your lips (you can read all about coconut oil here)!  And sugar is a great natural exfoliant.  Although I haven't tried it, I'm sure you could multiply this recipe and make a body scrub out of it.  I found these cute 2oz metal tins and I thought they would be perfect for gifting this DIY project!  Enjoy!



  1. Wow! My lips are always a problem for me. I didn't even know a scrub existed for lips? Awesomeness!

  2. I've gotten organic lip scrubs from lush and they work amazing but I wanna try this because I love scrubs and I would love to make more for a lot cheaper and if I could make a full body scrub from this I would fan girl:3

    1. I used it as a body scrub last week and it was great!!!
