Skin exfoliation should be an important part of anyone’s hygiene routine, and lips are no exception. To make sure your lips are soft, flake-free, and lipstick-ready, a lip scrub is in order. Lip scrubs are especially helpful (actually necessary) when you want to wear a matte lip color. You can either pick one up ready-made in stores or do it yourself at home. Today I’m sharing a super easy DIY lip scrub recipe with ingredients stocked in most kitchens as well as my favorite store-bought lip scrubs.
Easy DIY Lip Scrub Recipe
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Jar with lid (optional)
Combine the brown sugar (I like the bigger granules because they get the job done faster) and olive oil in a bowl, mixing until everything is thoroughly combined. Add more sugar or olive oil for your desired consistency.
Apply a small amount to lips with your finger, massaging in circular motions for 30 seconds. Rinse off with water and pat dry with a cloth.
Store the rest of the lip scrub in a jar with a lid, if you have leftovers (optional).

Fave Store-Bought Lip Scrubs
I haven’t yet met a Fresh product that I didn’t like! The Fresh Sugar Lip Polish is perfect for travel, since it’s small and the container is plastic (not glass). You need so little product, so it’ll last you a long time. It has a warm, brown sugar smell.
The BLISS Fabulips ‘Pout’-o-matic is perfect for someone who loves gadgets. The lip scrub itself smells like vanilla and candy; the scrubbing granules look to be of different shapes and sizes. The tool comes with an extra polishing head, so together with the scrub and the 2 polishing heads, this system is likely to last a long time as well.
I got the être belle Liplift Peel in a recent Glossybox, and I love it! I had never heard of the brand before; that’s the nice thing about subscription boxes. The lipgloss-style application is really great! It has a creamy consistency with a bit of grain.
