I’ve been trying to wear more of my lipstick collection lately, but I found it hard after realizing how dry my lips were. There’s really one major rule to wearing lipstick — you just can’t pull it off on dry lips!
I’ve heard great things about the Mint Julips lip scrub from LUSH, but I just could bring myself to buy it. As much as I love LUSH, I thought this was something simple that I could make myself.
Here’s what I used:
- 1 empty container
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1.5 teaspoons of olive oil (or try jojoba!)
- A few drops of honey
That’s it! You can play around with the oil and make sure you have enough after you stir it together. The oil hydrates while the sugar exfoliates, and the honey has beneficial properties as well but I just like the aftertaste it leaves. No more dry lips!
I recommend following up with your favorite lip balm before any lipstick, and it’ll look even better.
Have you ever made your own lip scrub, or do you prefer to buy?
