Best Lip Scrubs & An Easy DIY Recipe

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
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • 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).

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish

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.
