I am one of the poor unfortunate girls who suffers from year-round chapped lips. I have purchased dozens of lip balms and while some work, most don’t cut it.
However, sometimes my lips are so chapped that not even my Holy Grail lip balm can help soothe them. When that happens, I know there is only one solution: my brown sugar and vanilla lip scrub!
Trust me, it works like magic, is totally natural, and it smells SO good. Read on to learn how you too can make your own brown sugar and vanilla lip scrub:
What you’ll need:
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp honey or agave nectar (I used agave nectar!)
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Mixing bowl
- A small container
Using the mixing bowl, add your honey or agave nectar, then mix in the olive oil. This combination is super moisturizing on dry lips.
Lightly incorporate the brown sugar. The sugar will act as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin and relieving chapped lips.
For a yummy smell that seems almost good enough to eat, add the vanilla extract. Using a spoon, mix the ingredients until combined.
Spoon the mixture into a small container to store.
How to use:
To use, simply apply a small amount to your lips and gently scrub for 10 seconds. Then, rinse it off and apply your favorite lip balm. Finally, enjoy your soft kissable lips!

this worked amazingly! as soon as I saw this I had to try it out! it tasted and smelled great and now my lips feel so soft and smooth! thanks so much!
i love it!
How long will this lip scrub keep? Do I have to refrigerate it?
I didn’t have honey so I used maple syrup and it works just as well and taste delicious.
I just made this scrub. Super simple and I loved how I felt on my lips!! I’m sure to make this scrub over and over again.
This was absolutely wonderful. My lips felt so deliciously soft after the first use that I can only hope it continues to improve my lips more and more! I have always had dry and/or crumbly lips no matter what I d to moisturize them, so it makes it difficult to wear lipstick because it globs up in the cracks n such…..hopefully this will help. Keep the lip balm suggestions coming, please!!! ^_^ AND THANK YOU !!
I made this lip scrub and liked it. Going to keep using it. Now I can see through my lips.
How often should I use this?
I think using lip scrubs once a week is generally appropriate- but feel free to use whenever you need softer lips.
It worked great except I used coconut sugar
does it still work if we don’t have any lip balm to apply afterwards?
