I will def have to try this.  I tried a lip scrub at a Mary Kay party and loved it - but you are right I couldn't bring myself to pay $9 for lip scrub.

Thanks!

I never actually heard of lip scrubs before but I did try once scrubbing my lips with a sugar scrub. Does these differ all that much from regular sugar scrubs?

Regular sugar scrubs probably have fragrance oils that are not lip safe. IE things you probably don't want to ingest. And the sugars might be a little harsher than you want to use on your lips, but it just depends.

excuse my ignorance ladies, but i have some Qs Smiley
first, I don't know how to use and when to use a lip scrub. is its use the same as body scrub? my lips are usually dry and cracked due to my allergies( I usually have a runny nose), is it OK for me?
second, can I store my home-made lip scrub? how? in fridge or at room temp?

thanks! i'll give it a try Smiley

thankyou! I'll try it out in a moment ^^
oh and I second the questions above!
and are the vanilla and the essential oil necessary? ('cause I don't have them right now Cheesy)

ETA: It works really well ^^ I didn't add any essential oil or vanilla though, but it tastes quite nice Smiley

The vanilla and peppermint are just for flavor, so it's fine to leave them out. The peppermint will also give you a bit of a tingling feeling, but totally optional.

I use a lip scrub whenever my lips are feeling scaly and flaky. Be gentle with it and rub it on with your finger, a washcloth, or your toothbrush. Rinse off and put on a nice lip balm. I don't need to use it more than once a week or so, but use as often as you feel necessary (but be gentle!). It should be fine for a few months to store at room temperature. You can extend the life of any product that contains oil by putting it in the fridge, but that's not totally needed.

ironik--it probably depends on how cracked your lips are. I can use it when they are a little cracked, but obviously not when super painful/bleeding. Try it gently when they aren't too bad and hopefully that will prevent it getting any worse.

Elbow grease is the best polish.

This looks awesome! I used to have a lip mask with scrubbies in it that I loved so I'll probably try this.
Thanks!

Wake up, wake up, Darlin' Corey.
What makes you sleep so sound?
Them revenue officers a'commin'
For to tear your still-house down.

Well the first time I seen Darlin' Corey
She was settin' by the side of the sea,
With a forty-four strapped across her bosom
And a banjo on her knee.

I am throwing in a quick question. Can you substitute Vitamin E oil instead of Apricot oil?
