I occasionally get really cracked lips & I know sugar scrubs are good to get the skin off I just don't know which brands are the best.... or at least a good starter scrub. HELP! :)
you can make your own with just a small scoop of sugar with a little Shea butter or if you dont have it try a little evoo. Just remember if you use EVOO keep the amount small. then just rub your lips together for a few seconds and there you go. That is cheaper than buying the sugar sticks from LUSH
Make your own! Mix brown sugar/white sugar with some grapeseed oil or coconut oil :)
Thanks Beatrice! & Bee where do I get grape seed oil?!
Mixing your own is probably the best option but if you're lazy like me (or want a certain flavor), then the Lush ones are great. I have the Bubblegum one!
When using oils to make your own (olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil) remember to keep the amount mixed very small, and discard the mixture after a few days; the oils will go off, and aside from any smell they might develop, even just that little bit on your lips could make you ill.
OMG! good to know!!! As crazy as I am I probably would have attempted to create the "perfect" mix and save it for later.... way later... hahaha! Thanks for that tip! Things could have gotten gross!
Here is a recipe I posted on my blog. I use it about once a week and I really like the outcome. However, keep in mind, the results vary for different people.
Awesome!!! Thank you so much! I'll def try this and let you know how it goes!

You can buy grapeseed oil on Amazon if you don't have any at your local grocery store. http://amzn.to/Ktheui

My DIY lip scrub mix
That's not true about it turning bad... Oil and sugar are actually both natural preservatives... You can keep the scrub for as long as you want :)
The lip scrub will be fine if you add a drop of vit e oil to it. You can get grapeseed and vit e oil at any whole foods type store.
I have started using sugar and Vaseline I only started last night but my lips are feeling really smooth this morning!
