Treat your lips to a little extra TLC with this Chocolate Sugar Lip Scrub. Guess what? This scrub recipe is edible!
Homemade gifts! I love them. They feel straight from the heart, ya know? So, let’s talk about scrubs. Confession: I’ve always seen them around the web and pinned them, tweeted them, and stumbled them. However, I never made them. I guess I was a little frightened by the fear of the unknown. HA!
Well, this past summer I was in Texas for the Blog Elevated conference. Imperial Sugar happened to be a sponsor and at the opening reception they had a whole area set up to make your own scrubs. What? I was like, “Yes, please!”
All that to say that they’re really not that hard to make aaaaand I fell in love with this one! Chocolate Sugar Lip Scrub. It’s delicious and the perfect exfoliator for your lips, being that chocolate is rich in antioxidants.
They make great (Christmas) gifts too! Place in a small jar and add a ribbon — voila!
