Lucious Lip Scrub

I have to be honest, I’ve never been a huge lip scrub person. It’s practically an early Christmas miracle if I remember to remove my mascara at the end of the day. That is, until I made this lip scrub. Game changer for real especially this time of year where the air is so dry and it feels like no amount of water is going to keep me hydrated enough to avoid chapped lips. I’ve been doing this at night (ahem, after removing my mascara) and Lord have mercy, it’s glorious.

Everything you need is already in your kitchen! So grab a tiny bowl or even a cup, mix up these ingredients and prepare to have the silkiest lips of your life. Everyone from your baby’s cheeks to your partners kisses will appreciate this new found lip care regimen. Let me know what you think after you’re done smooching!
