Your lips will love you for using this flavorful DIY Chocolate Lip Scrub that’s easy to make with ingredients you already have on hand!
One thing I hate is for my lips to feel dry and chapped. While lip balms can be moisturizing I find that lip scrubs are wonderful for pulling off dry skin and leaving my lips nice and smooth. However, now that lip scrubs are becoming more popular they’re also becoming more expensive. I figure why pay for a high priced lip scrub when I can make my own DIY Chocolate Lip Scrub with ingredients found right in my pantry!
The only things you’ll need to make your own DIY Chocolate Lip Scrub are sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, honey and olive oil. What I really love about this scrub is how customizable it is. Want it to have a more caramel flavor? Use brown sugar instead of white sugar. Want a different flavor than vanilla? Substitute in almond extract. Not a big fan of olive oil? Use coconut oil instead. It’s easy to make this completely your own.
Not only is the DIY Chocolate Lip Scrub super customizable it’s also super easy to make. It took me less than 5 minutes to put together this batch and most of that time was tracking down all the ingredients in the cabinets and finding the runaway measuring spoons. Once I had all the ingredients I just combined them until I had the texture I wanted. One thing to note is that the recipe below will give you the exact amount pictured above. Now you, obviously, won’t use this all at one time so just store it in a cool dry place and it will keep for quite awhile.
