DIY Lip Scrubs

Recently I’ve been on a DIY kick – buying supplies from Amazon and making things myself  because in the long run it’s cheaper and funner. Why would I go to LUSH to spend $10 on one lip scrub, when I can make tons with the same amount of money? Lip scrubs are one of the many things I like to make myself, and these are some of my favorite recipes.

If you want to make multiple lip scrubs and give them away to people, try these 5 Gram Plastic Containers. These are also great for lip balms.

A lip scrub is a good way to exfoliate your lips and take off dead skin. It’s important to use a lip balm afterwards as well.
