Rose Honey Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

Hi loves!! If your lips are anything like mine, they tend to go through the motions with the seasons and lately I’ve been struggling with them being so freakin dry!! So in hopes to get these babies back to baby bottom smooth, I reached out to DIY all-star, Erin Sousa (founder of Sparkle Media), to share her exfoliating and soothing DIY Rose Honey Brown Sugar Lip Scrub with me … and in return, she’s sharing it with YOU today! LOL!! Let’s get right to it … take it away, Erin!!

Morning everyone! Erin here!! A little kitchen beauty sesh kinda makes the perfect Sunday morning activity! Just me?! I whipped up this yummy (yes, I tasted it juuust to check, or as my mom used to say, to make sure it wasn’t poison, lol) rose honey brown sugar lip scrub on a Sunday morning while watching Barefoot Contessa on Food Network and I had to share it with you!

Jillian Harris and Erin Sousa DIY Rose Honey Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

Let’s break down the ingredients:

  • Brown sugar – acts as a gentle exfoliator because of its grainy texture
  • Honey – honey is a natural humectant so it’s actually adding moisture
  • Olive oil – adds moisture to bind the ingredients
  • Rose essential oil – because IMO, anything rose is a big YES

So why would you want to exfoliate your lips? A few obvious reasons – it gets rid of dry skin, and makes your lips softer. A reason not so obvious? It helps your nourishing lip products penetrate better! If you’re gonna spend on those, let’s makes sure they are the most effective they can be, right?!

Rose Honey Lip Scrub Recipe

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup olive or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 10 drops rose essential oil

(I bought my containers, rose petals and essential oil at The Soap Dispensary in Vancouver)

I personally LOVE the smell of rose, but if you’re not so into it, customize this scrub with mint or lavender oil instead of rose, or maybe adding lemon zest would be your jam?

The most amazing thing about this scrub (besides the soft lips!) is that it can double as a body scrub if you whip up a double batch! I added some dried rose petals into the body scrub just because it’s pretty and a little more luxurious, then put it in a bigger tin for the shower. Incorporate the lip scrub into your nightly routine – leave it by the sink and use it before you put on your nighttime lip product and hop into bed… and by all means, friends don’t let friends have sandpaper lips, so pass on a jar to your bestie, okay?!
