Hope everybody had a wonderful weekend! I’m still suffering from a cold so I don’t think it’s possible for me to be rested but I definitely got to relax AND finally have thanksgiving with my family.
And now, unfortunately, it’s Monday again.. I’m TOO ready for the short work week in just two weeks. And that means Christmas is in two weeks. And I haven’t even started shopping. So there’s that..
But today I’m featuring a little yummy DIY lip scrub. I think this is actually my first DIY I’ve ever featured! I’m not the craftiest person, but when something is this easy, I’m in.
When it gets cold outside my lips get crazy dry, and scrubs are the perfect solution. I’m semi new to exfoliants, but they’ve been life changers for my skin care and beauty routine! This one only has 3 ingredients:
And I promise my bowl isn’t dirty.. Some of the black has just come off.. Oops!
So I basically threw in about 3 spoonfuls of brown sugar into a small mixing bowl.
Then, I added a little bit of honey at a time – just enough to make the sugar damp when I mixed it.
Finally, I dropped in a little bit of vanilla extract for taste and to make the mixture smooth. Then voila! You have yourself a (super tasty) lip scrub. So apply and scrub away!
You can place it in a small container for convenience – like my cute Cuban coffee cup (or something with a lid unless you’re lazy like me). I made just enough that I’ll use it up before it dries out, but be sure to keep it covered or protected for sanitary reasons and to keep the moisture in.
And PS – I’m putting up a giveaway soon (aka tomorrow), so follow me on bloglovin so you don’t miss it!
