DIY chocolate lip scrub!



If you've visited my blog before, you're probably well aware of my love for DIY skin/beauty care. Recently, I was thinking about how to incorporate everyones favourite thing, chocolate, into my beauty regime and so here we have it: an almost edible DIY chocolate lip scrub that has been working absolute wonders on my lips!



You will need:

Olive Oil
Sugar
Cocoa powder

Measurements will vary depending on the quantity and consistency desired however I used:

Olive Oil and sugar- around 3tsps
Cocoa powder- around 1 tsp



To make:

Simply mix all 3 ingredients together and store in a small jar or air tight container. The scrub will last for around 2-3 days in the fridge. To use, simply apply scrub to dry or damp lips in circular motions, rinse and dry.

And that's it..

Super easy, nothing you wouldn't consume, no harsh chemicals, and it really does work!

Plus, it's chocolate!!

I hope you've enjoyed this quick and easy DIY and let me know if you try it out for yourself!

    1. Hello!
      Cocoa is definitely not everyone's cup of tea haha, you could always replace it with another flavour you like? Vanilla is really good too!
