Tutorial: DIY lip scrub

This is a super easy and effective way to get lovely soft, smooth and moisturised lips using only three ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, and brown sugar!

Each of the ingredients used in this lip scrub has skincare superpowers: olive oil and coconut oil are both amazing natural moisturisers, and brown sugar is a fantastic gentle exfoliant.

1. Mash 2 tablespoons each of coconut oil and olive oil in a small bowl, until it creates this mushy sort of mixture.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and mix together until all the ingredients are combined, then transfer into a little pot (you can get these at Boots/Superdrug in the travel section).

To use, rub a small amount on your lips in circular motions, then rinse off.

You could also add a pinch of cinnamon or a couple of drops of lemon juice for a more enhanced flavour and smell!


  1. Where do you get coconut oil from? How long will this keep? Looks lush :) x

    1. I got my coconut oil from Superdrug (I think it cost about £1.99!) but you can also get it from health food shops like Holland & Barrett!
      I've had mine for about 10 days and it's still going strong! x

  2. I've seen a few lip/face scrub tutorials about lately, and really have to try it! It looks so easy and fun to do :)
