Easy DIY Recipe for Smooth Lips

At TwentyTweets, this past weekend was all about lips!  In Saturday’s Beauty Product Review, Kate shared how much she loves LUSH’s Lip Scrub in Mint Julep.  And as much as I love a great beauty product (especially one that makes my lips absolutely delectable)–I love getting something for half the price even more!

Since high school, I’ve been making my own lip scrub.  It’s simple, easy to make and you can make it as you need it–meaning it never goes to waste.  And chances are you probably already have everything you need to make it.


1 Teaspoon of Vaseline

1 Teaspoon of Sugar

You can also add mint, vanilla or other natural spices for a little something extra.


1. Put a teaspoon of Vaseline in the palm of your hand.

2. Next mix the sugar with the Vaseline using a q-tip.

Note: The mixture should be mostly Vaseline.  It should have the consistency of a thick scrub.

3. Put the scrub on one finger and gently massage it into your lips using a circular, “buffing,” motion.

4. Rinse the Vaseline and sugar off of your lips using warm water.

5. Finish the process by applying a generous amount of lip balm.

It doesn’t get any easier than that.  And you’ll be surprised at how smooth your lips are afterwards.
