So, I've been completely obsessed with beauty blogs lately, and one blog that I especially love is Essie Button by Estee. As I was reading though her blog I cam across a DIY on how to make your own lip scrub with coconut oil, honey, and brown sugar. I'd heard of this before and had been looking for a lip scrub with minimal ingredients so I thought, what the hey, might as well make my own too.
Estee had measurements in her post (see Estee's post here), but I just threw a scoop of this and a scoop of that into a bowl and mixed it up. I also didn't have any honey, so I substituted agave, and because agave is sweeter then sugar I used about half as much. I bought the little jar at superstore for $1 and it ended up working perfectly to hold my mixture. I've been using the scrub every couple nights before I go to bed and I think it's working pretty well at keeping my lips soft.
