commercial vs diy

For me it comes down to a number of factors: cost, ingredients, and packaging. In striving to create less waste, a homemade scrub is pretty much going to win the contest every time. 

ingredients

Coconut Oil  Sugar Lavender or Peppermint Oil

put it together & use

To make, soften coconut oil. Stir in the sugar. Add optional oil. Mix gently until well-blended.  To use, apply a small amount to your lips and massage in. Leave on for 5 minutes, and remove with a warm cloth. 

FAQs

How long will my homemade lip scrub last?  If you don't use it all up, it will last up to 6 months in the fridge. 

Should I use my lip scrub every day? Though tempting, it can actually do the opposite of what you want and dry your lips out. So use it no more than 2-3 times a week for best results.
