Lip Scrub

So I've been wanting to try a lip scrub. Since like my face, my lips get dry pretty easily and they peel. I've been trying very hard not to pick at the skin since that's bad.

Anyway... I've eyed a couple different scrubs. One from lush and the other I can't remember. But to pay so much for such a small amount... not to mention just simply for my lips. Just didn't sit well with me. So I made my own.

Plan on getting something a little nice looking to store the stuff in.

I used sugar, olive oil, honey, and a little vanilla extract.
Definitely works well. Just use it at night then follow with a moisturizing balm.

plan on trying other recipes and flavors.

I just use sugar mixed with olive oil. Works just as well if not better as the ones you buy at the store.

Cool I'd like to try this. I've only ever used the elf exfoliator.  How often do youexfoliate?

I exfoliate roughly every other day. Once I have it on my lips I leave it on for about 5 minutes after scrubbing then rinse off with luke warm water.

Never used store brands. Since most of them seem over priced for just a little bit of something I put on my lips. But I like this well enough to not bother trying store bought ones.
