DIY Lip Scrub

I recently ran out out of my Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub, and since I didn’t have time to go pick up another jar, I finally decided to make my own one. Scrub, not jar. In case you want to know how I’ve made it, you can check out the video below! The process is really easy and you can probably find all the ingredients you need in your kitchen. 

Ohh, just to let you know, this scrub turned out quite liquidy at first, so I later added a bit more sugar, which made it much better. If you’ll end up making it yourself, I would advise you to put in less honey and more sugar.

Now I only have one question for you. Would you maybe be interested in seeing more (beauty) DIYs here on my blog?

    vaseline is harmful to your health though you should try a healthier alternative like beeswax 🙂

      I have heard that some carcinogenic impurities can be found in poorly refined petroleum jelly, but when the petroleum jelly is properly refined, all the impurities are removed. Such refined petroleum jelly is used in A LOT of cosmetic products. I used the original Vaseline that is made by using a triple purification method, so it is supposed to be completely safe. I've also heard that in the EU, the products containing petroleum jelly have to have a certification from the producer of petroleum jelly ensuring that it is free of carcinogens, so I think it is totally alright if I use it for my lip scrub! 🙂

      Yeah, Lush lip scrubs especially are so expensive! You can basically make your own one for free at home. I'll go check out your post right away and maybe try to make your version next time! 🙂

    Super video. Jaz sem si tudi naredila svoj lip scrub, le da sem uporabila kokosovo lje (v trdnem stanju) in sladkor in je super. Pa še poceni. 🙂

    You really made me laugh: "I finally decided to make my own one. Scrub, not jar." Great DIY though.
