Hey. So you know recently I shared about my latest obsession with LipSense? Well, I’ve found one thing: my lips look terrible because they are so doggone dry. I mean bad. I constantly chew or pick at my lips. Apparently it’s hereditary-stinkin DNA. Well, I was browsing Instagram the other day when I found this beauty from Suburban Simplicity:
I don’t know about you, but everything in this picture makes me happy. I love making a mess, as you know, so making my own Lip Scrub has been on my to-do list. And I can now check that bad boy off, I did it!
The original recipe came from Cutefetti. It has 2 ingredients that you probably will have on hand:
Of course I have these in my house so I grabbed a cute little jar and got to work. Which “work” took less than 2 minutes. DIY score!!!!
DIY Lip Scrub
I do use affiliate links for your convenience. Read my full disclosure here.
In a small jar mix together:
2 Tbsp Epsom Salt
1 TBS Vaseline
2-3 drops of Essential oil. I used peppermint. I can at least pretend I am at the spa right?
That’s it. Mix them together in the jar and then screw the lid on top. Here are some links to what I used:
Holla. That is what I’m talking about. Here’s a quick video tutorial:
Now, I’m kind of obsessed with the stuff. Like, I use it from 2-3 times a day. But that is so okay, because this is “HEALING” lip scrub. Well, that’s what the initial post says from Cutefetti so I’m rolling with it.
Here’s the how-to, are you ready for this?
Dip finger in scrub.
Rub in circular motion on lips.
Wipe off with wet or dry rag.
That’s it. I know. I knocked it out of the park on this DIY-er. hehehhehehe (I hope you can hear my sarcasm).
I finish with a lip balm that I bought from Mary Kay about 10 years ago. Yes, 10 years ago. And yes, my lips still feel like a baby’s bottom.
Here is what I do:
One of the easiest DIY’s I’ve ever done. Plus I use it constantly. It’s a win win 🙂 I hope you get to try this out. Oh, and if you don’t know about Essential Oils, I can hook you up. I’ll be doing a post about them soon!
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
