♥ DIY: Sweet Orange Lipscrub

I know most of you probably know how to do this since it's not at all complicated. But I thought I'd show those who don't know, and reminds those who do. I also thought it would be fun to show my own version :)

  • I used a lipbalm travel jar from Primark (it comes in a set of 3 lipbalm jars and three lotion bottles, for £1). 
  • Fill the jar half way or a bit more with Castor Sugar
  • Pour Jojoba Oil so that you just about cover the sugar, if theres more space, add more sugar & oil subsequently.
  • Finish off with adding Sweet Orange Essential Oil
 Alternatives: You can use: salt instead of sugar, although I wouldnt, any other oil instead of Jojoba oil, Fragrance or any other essential oil (like Peppermint Oil) instead of Orange Oil

Hope you liked this. Do you use your own lip scrub or do you prefer the Lush ones?



  1. This is a great post! I use the Lush ones but you have inspired me to try this and save some money.

  9. I've never tried a lipscrub. What does it do scrub your lips? Hehe I know it may sound like a stupid qestion but it sounds interesting and like I said I've never tried it.

    It's also great to know that Primark does cheap travel kits too. I never thought of looking there!
