It wasn’t until my mini obsession with lipstick ran rampid and turned into a true beauty infatuation. I must admit, I have O.L.D, obsessive lipstick disorder. I find that I always have some sort of color to my lips; let it be a tinted gloss, a matte colored lipcream or a glossy lipstick. My lips, it’s like they whimper for color. With this amount of lip puckering going on I have realized my lips could use some exfoliating. With most glossy lipsticks you can get away with it, but when it comes to a matte finish it shows every nook and cranny {yeah — that’s right! I can use those two words together, I’m a mom, I have rights to them!}. I hunted high and low for some easy and affordable ways to exfoliate my lips and I found two brilliant DIY’s that I bet you already have the indigence for.

Sugar Lip Scrub

1tsp Honey
1tsp Olive Oil {evoo works too}
1tsp Brown Sugar
1tsp White Sugar

DIRECTIONS: mix everything together until it forms a paste, rub with the tips of your fingers, in a circular motion, on both the top and bottom lip for 30 seconds. Rinse and Moisturize with a chapstick. Smooth like a babies… okay you get the picture!

TIPS: When you’re making any sort of beauty products at home, I highly recommend finding the best of the best as far as ingredients go. Just as important as it is that you consume good-for-you food, it’s as important that you use it on your skin too. Tons of great affordable options in raw and organic Honey, Oils, and Sugars on Amazon,  be sure to check them out.

  1. will have to try this out!

  2. is it must we use coffee ground? can we use coffee beans/

    • Anie it would need to be ground as you would require a consistency of a ground to do a proper exfoliation. The bean would just be too big.



  1. […] Coffee & Sugar Lip Scrub This special & unique lip scrub was designed for well… java lovers! The extra exfoliate from the ground up coffee beans will leave you obsessed in no time. Best used in the morning hours as the aroma of the coffee & sugar combined will wake you up even before your first cup. For an extra jolt, take a taste of your lip scrub – the sharp taste is bound to wake up your taste buds in addition to ridding the dead skin.

This is the only recipe that calls for brown sugar as opposed to the traditional granulated white sugar. If the exfoliator itself doesn’t make you fall in love, the aroma will.
