MAKE: Chocolate Sugar Lip Scrub


So I'm obsessed with scrubs.  I scrub my face twice a day, my whole body daily and my lips every other day.  Skin feels amazing after it's been scrubbed... and most people don't even think to scrub their lips!  I came up with this oh-so-simple recipe for lip scrub that will leave your lips feeling silky smooth and moisturized.  And the best part?  It's 100% edible!  You can buy all these ingredients at your local market. 


You can use any pure extract you choose.  I have some orange extract that I think will be especially yummy in a scrub, too!


You can do things the difficult way, like me, and accidentally buy the packets of raw sugar.  Oops!  I also saw something called coconut sugar that looked quite granular. I think that would work pretty well for a scrub, too.


Just take all of your ingredients and mix them together... simple!  Then just scrub it on your lips and either lick it off or rinse with water.


I bought this cool little jar at Crate & Barrel for only $2!  I love that it seals, so this is great for gifting! 

This honestly took me 5 minutes to whip up.  It's so easy.  And seriously, it feels incredible after you scrub! Trust me!

  4. Would it be possible to use coconut oil instead of avocado oil?
