DIY Lip Scrub

homemade sugar lipscrub diy

Hey girls! You’re in for a treat today, a chocolate treat! Everyone loves chocolate right? I have a homemade completely edible (I know, because I ate it) chocolate and vanilla sugar lip scrub recipe for you all. An exfoliating lip scrub has many benefits especially in the winter months when our lips tend to become more dry. I know, for me, my lips are dry and flaky all winter long and I absolutely need a great exfoliation treatment. I’ve tried many and some are great, some are ok but most just suck, to be honest. I tried the popcorn lip scrub from Lush and it was the worst experience ever, I felt like it was just gross and didn’t really work. I like to exfoliate my lips nightly and apply some lip balm before bed but also before applying lipstick. They also work great as a lip plumper, if you scrub it on with a toothbrush it will kind of work towards plumping your lips and be a  nice addition for a bold lip. So I set out last night to try a new homemade sugar lip scrub recipe with a few suggestions from Facebook and Twitter, and I’m loving what I came up with!

DIY Lip Scrub Homemade


  • Vanilla Extract
  • Sugar
  • Olive Oil
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Small Bowl
Gather your ingredients, add 1 Tbsp of sugar, 1/2 tsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and a 1/2 tsp of oil and mix well. Apply with your fingers or toothbrush onto your lips for about 30 seconds and rinse with luke warm water or you could eat it (like I did lol).
It’s super easy and delicious! Plus, it’s way cheaper then buying a high end exfoliator and is a quick fix with things most of us already have in our homes. You could change it up and add lemon or lime juice instead of vanilla and cocoa if you’re looking for a different flavor, even some flavored kool aid or tea, the possibilities are endless.
