DIY Sugar Lip Scrubs

Thanks for sharing!


Sugar lip scrubs are quick and easy to make.

You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry to make these right now!

Using a sugar scrub on your lips will help your lips be soft and remove dead or flaky skin.

Using sugar lip scrubs before applying lipstick or lip gloss will help it last longer and your lips looking healthy.

Using a lip scrub at night will help remove any makeup products from your lips.

These lip scrubs are completely customizable and you can use your favorite ingredients and omit the ones that you do not have on hand.

I made two different lip scrubs in less than five minutes. I can’t decide which one I like better so I’m sharing both with you!

The first one is a classic sugar scrub. Feel free to experiment with different amounts of each ingredient. The amounts listed are approximate.

DIY Sugar Lip Scrub

  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil* (liquid) or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • few drops of your favorite essential oil (I used peppermint)
  • a few drops of vanilla
  1. Mix all together and store in an airtight container.

*If you use coconut oil it could turn solid again if it is stored in a cool place. To make it liquid again just rub it between your fingers or on your lips for a few seconds and it will turn back to a liquid.

Just for fun, and because I am obsessed with really like coffee, I decided to make a coffee sugar lip scrub.

DIY Coffee Sugar Lip Scrub

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coffee grounds
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil (see note about coconut oil on above recipe) or olive oil
  • few drops of vanilla
  1. Mix all together and store in an airtight container.

These make a great exfoliant. After you are done scrubbing your lips you can use the excess to scrub your hands and make them nice and soft too. I would advise not using this on your whole face as it is probably too abrasive.

    Hey! Thanks for the advice! These sound awesome! I'm hoping to do a bit of experimenting with lip scrubs, for fun & to find one I really love. I had a couple ideas but I'm not sure if they'd work so I was hoping you'd know since you seem pretty well versed in the topic. If I used coconut oil & wanted it to be more like the consistency of lip scrubs sold in stores that look & feel like lip balm+sugar, if I put it in the fridge/freezer to set it so it's a solid, would it melt on contact with my lips? Oh, & I have refined & unrefined, does that make any difference? Another thing I thought of was using my favorite lip balm as the base instead of buying a new lip balm with sugar already in it. Could that work? If it could, would I be able to pull the stick out, add my ingredients, fill the tube back up, & freeze it to make it the same shape so I can apply it easily like regular lip balm? Thanks for sharing your ideas & taking the time to read this! Your site seems great so I'm sure I'll be back! Lots of love! ????

      Hey Alex, thanks for the love! If you put it in the fridge, it would be more solid and it would still melt on contact with your lips, but it is not necessary to refrigerate it.
