diy peppermint lip scrub

i've always loved the idea of a lip scrub, and after a little research i found out that it is even easier to make than i had thought- my kind of diy.
i'll let the photos do the talking as it really is a case of measure, mix, done- although maybe add an extra few minutes to make a little label!
the only thing to mention is that these measurements made enough scrub to fill two little sample pots (from the body shop) so you may have to adjust them depending on the pot you use.

i haven't stopped using this since i made it, it's so refreshing in the morning! 
i'm definitely going to be making this again, it used hardly any ingredients that i always have in the cupboard and i can't wait to try other flavours :)

  3. How neat! I picked up a lip scrub at a store once and liked it a lot. I'd totally rather make it myself than buy it though. Thanks for sharing this DIY!!

  5. This looks great! I use the LUSH bubblegum scrub even though I know it would be super easy and cheap to make my own, purely because it smells and tastes amazing! haha
    Stupid really when I could make one! xx

  13. I did this last night, and I really liked it. However, it didn't come out like the picture, and the oil and sugar separated. Should I use more sugar?

    1. glad you liked it! i've not had a problem with them separating at all- i think you might be right and might need to add more sugar. also, maybe try and stir for a bit longer to make sure they mix together properly :)
