This is a 5 ingredient DIY lip scrub, but there are no special online purchases that have to be made.
I like how she added the salt and chap stick to the recipe – the salt is finer and gentler than sugar and the chap stick helps moisture your lips further. For more spa recipes for spa kits, scrubs, homemade soaps and milk baths go here: diychristmascrafts.tumblr.com/tagged/beauty
DIY 2-4 Ingredient Lip Scrub Recipe and Tutorial from scissorsandthread. This would make such a quick and cheap gift for Valentine’s Day or stocking stuffers at holiday time.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day so I thought I would share with y’all one of my favourite beauty recipes – a moisturising lip scrub! This scrub is very similar to a scrub you will find at a very popular natural soap company – but at a fraction of the cost! Plus because I can’t give you all a present individually, I’m going to gift you some very cute Valentine’s Day stickers – perfect for decorating your scrub pots (just print them on sticker paper and go crazy!)
– 3tbs of castor sugar – 1 1/2 tbs carrier oil – a few drops of flavour oil – food colouring
TOOLS: – mixing bowl – spoon – little tubs to hold your balm. These are 10g screw top jars found at the craft store.
A few notes: CARRIER OILS: Some good carrier oils to use for this project are: Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil or Macadamia Oil. It’s up to you and your budget – I love Sweet Almond Oil because it makes my lips silky smooth. Jojoba is used in a lot of beauty products but can be quite expensive, especially if you’re wanting to make this on the cheap!
FLAVOUR OILS: I bought my flavour oils from the local craft store because they have an excellent range – look in the cake making section! Alternatively you can look in the baking section of your grocery store. Alternatively, you can order flavour oils from places like Bramble Berry who have a huge range. If you’re going to colour your scrub, only use a very small amount of food colouring as you don’t want to stain your lips. I used a lip safe colour from a beauty & soap store. If you’re not sure, then you can leave it out to be on the safe side!
OK, on to the recipe!
Pour your sugar, oil, flavour oil and colouring (optional) in to your bowl.
Start stirring people! Please take note of my very cute spoon.
And… hey presto, you have a scrub! Yep, it’s that easy!
Spoon your scrub in to your little jars. I wrapped washi tape around mine and stuck some of my Valentine’s stickers on the top:
