Lip scrubs have to be one of the most important AND most overrated beauty products of all time. Important because you really need to slough off all that dry, dead and patchy skin off your lips to keep them soft, smooth and pretty. And overrated because paying something like $30 for a teeny tiny bottle of what’s essentially sugar crystals and an oil base is beyond my powers of understanding.

The happy solution? This make-you-own lip scrub recipe that takes about 2 minutes, costs less than $1 and does the job just as effectively as any store-bought version. Plus it smells and tastes heavenly. Try it out?


1 tablespoon fine brown sugar
1 tablespoon jojoba oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
3 drops peppermint essential oil (optional)


Combine the ingredients in a small glass jar and give them a really good stir.
To use, lightly massage into the lips with circular motions, then rinse off. This works best when you actually scoop up the sugar and rub that part.
Finish off by using your favorite lip moisturizer.
This recipe makes enough product for 3 months of frequent use.

What about you? Do you use a lip scrub? Will you be trying this one? Or do you have a secret recipe of your own? Do share.
