DIY Beauty: Brown Sugar & Vanilla Lip Scrub

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:

Diy lip scrub materials

  • 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

How to:

Step One

Diy lip scrub step 1

Using the mixing bowl, add your honey or agave nectar, then mix in the olive oil. This combination is super moisturizing on dry lips.

Step Two

Lightly incorporate the brown sugar. The sugar will act as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin and relieving chapped lips.

Step Three

Step Four

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!

  1. I added a couple drops of Vit E to prolong shelf life taking some to my hubbie in the UK so I put it in the frige until travel time

  2. I realize this was posted a few months ag,o but I just remembered reading about a lip scrub today when my lips were so chapped. I made this and no more chapped lips! Very good idea!

  3. Just tried this and it works amazing!!!! I will add a bit more brown sugar, it’s quite liquidy. But it feels amazing and my lips smell yummy!!

  4. I almost bought a brown sugar lip scrub for $20 but I’m so glad I tried this first! I LOVED it, thanks for posting!

  5. OMG! Just tried this on myself and my 3 year old son. It’s awesome! It’s going to be part of our daily routine now that the cold has arrived. Thanks for sharing!

  6. This works so well! I used to exfoliate with a toothbrush and it works fine, but this was exceptional, I’m hooked.

  7. The problem is, if I put this near my mouth, I would probably eat some…it is too reminiscent of a dessert for me!
