There’s nothing like dry, chapped lips to make smooth lipstick application impossible. Argh! Plus, who wants to make out with a crusty-mouthed beast? Skip the store-bought lip scrub, save yourself some dough and experience the satisfaction of DIY-ing this beauty at home. Peppermint essential oil gives it the ooh-la-la tinglies.
To make this you will need a small bowl and a small glass jar with a lid.
Top Tip – If you like your lip scrub to glide more easily, add more jojoba oil, a few drops at a time, until you get the consistency you like.
- 1 tbsp packed vegan brown sugar
- 1 tsp jojoba oil
- 1⁄4 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 drops peppermint essential oil
In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, jojoba oil, vanilla extract and peppermint essential oil until sugar is moistened. Spoon into jar.
Using index finger or toothbrush, apply scrub to lips. Gently scrub, in circles, for 10 seconds.
Rinse lips with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Follow with Luscious Lip Balm or another favorite vegan lip balm.
Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight for up to 6 months.
