I’m a huge lipstick fan and with constant use of bold red and fuchsia lippies, you’re bound to experience some little dry flakes of skin on your lips. its no biggy though! Quite easy to get rid of. So I was on the hunt for a lipscrub and went to a particular store … No need to mention names and saw the price of their lipscrub. Let’s just say that its ridiculous paying R120+ for 30g of lipscrub made with items that you already have in your home. (Call me cheap. Student budget darlings!)
What I used :
•Cherry Flav Zambuk
•Put your castor sugar(half a cup) into a bowl.
•Add a table spoon of almond essence into your mixture.
•Scoop small bits of lipbalm onto a spoon and melt it with a candle.
Tip: mix the lipbalm into your mixture immediately because it hardens really fast and won’t be able to blend in with your product.
This DIY is however adjustable. You can use any lipbalm or oil that you want. I’ve seen many DIYs that uses Jojoba oil, food colouring and flavour but I kept mine plain and simple seeing that the Cherry Zambuk Lip balm that I used had Jojoba oil, flavour and colouring in it. I tried to stay clear of any food colouring because I wanted my scrub to remove stains from my lips and not add any.
Your DIY lipscrub will also be amazing for the upcoming winter months to prevent dry chapped lips. The Zambuk in the ingredients list is for moisture and the sugar for exfoliating your lips and getting rid of all the dry flakey pieces. My cherry lipscrub is more pinker than what it appears on the picture and believe me when I say that it smells amazing! Just like sweeties.
