DIY Lip Scrub

With only a week or so left of summer break, we have a few more fun crafts and activities to pack in. 

Technically, I’m on the fence about my feelings for back to school – I’m looking forward to some peace and quiet during the day so I can get some actual work done, but not looking forward to the early morning wake up times and inevitable homework struggles.  

This DIY Lip Scrub project has been on my list of to-dos all summer.  I’d ordered these little jars back in May and my lil missy recently reminded me about them.  I figured it was the perfect time to try making this Cotton Candy Sugar Lip Scrub. 

Because what’s better than a little mother/daughter craft project?

Why This DIY Lip Scrub Needs to go on your Must Make List!

Homemade lip scrubs exfoliate and moisturize your lips naturally without any harsh chemicals.

This particular recipe makes just enough for 3 lip balm containers, which was perfect for us – my daughter and I each kept one and she was able to give one to her best friend too.

It would be very easy to make a much larger batch, though, and I think these would make a great party favor for a tween birthday party!

In addition to being fun and easy, this Cotton Candy Sugar Lip Scrub is actually very nourishing for dry, chapped lips.

The Sugar Lip Scrub contains both coconut oil and Vitamin E oil and while I’m sure you know the many benefits of coconut oil, did you know that Vitamin E oil is known for speeding up healing and nourishing skin? It’s one of the main ingredients in healing lip balms like Burt’s Bees!

  1. I tried this and it really worked!!! My lips are so moist. Highly recommend.

  2. If I make this with cotton candy sugar do you think it would work out the same or is there a specific reason for not using it
    I only ask because I have coconut oil vitamin E and tubs already and would be cheaper/easier to just get cotton candy sugar in two colours (I can get it in bulk quite cheap from amzon) plus I great at spilling things and don’t want a blue/red splatter themed kitchen

    1. I have no idea what cotton candy sugar even is! Give it a try and come back and let us know if cotton candy sugar works.

    I have made this and the coconut oil seems to overpower the candy floss smell and taste any advise please x

    1. You may need a better quality coconut oil. That being said, coconut oil does have a strong scent and different essential oils have different levels of smells. This may be a case where you need to add a nother drop or too of essential oil. Give it a try and see what happens.
