How To Make Homemade Cinnamon Lip Scrub

I was in Lush a few weeks ago when I saw that they had their "Santa's" lip scrub back in stock for Christmas
In the past I bought their "Mint Julips" lip scrub which I loved and used it once or twice a week. However, I decided that instead of spending £5.50 on one of Lush's lip scrubs, I would make my own at home and share the recipe with you!

What you will need
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp pure coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vitamin e oil
1 tbsp ground cinnamon 

  • Throw all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together 
  • Transfer to a small pot with a lid (any left-overs store in a sealed box in the fridge)
  • Rub the mixture on your lips to remove dry skin
  • Wipe your lips
  • Add some lip balm to your lips to lock in moisture

The ingredients in this mixture have some benefits themselves:
  • Coconut oil is very moisturising and contains antibacterial acid
  • Honey is a component in some lip balms due to the healing abilities of it
  • Vitamin E helps to relieve the damage of chapped lips - Jo Malone even have a Vitamin E lip conditioner! 

Let me know if you make this!
