Are you looking for a natural and easy way to keep your lips soft, smooth, and hydrated? Look no further than raspberry lip scrub! It’s an easy DIY lip scrub that will give you smooth, healthy lips. A few days of using this raspberry sugar scrub for lips will have your pucker ready to be kissed!
Not only is a raspberry lip scrub simple to make with ingredients you already have in your kitchen, but it also provides an effective exfoliation that can help remove dead skin cells from the lips. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make raspberry lip scrub at home as well as provide some tips on using it so you can get the best results.
Why make homemade lip scrubs?
Winter is harsh on our lips and some days I feel like I am applying lip balm just about every hour. I am the queen of lip balm. I find them in my pants pockets, in the car, and quite often I find them in the dryer.
You could say I am a bit of a lip balm addict, especially in the winter! However, lip balm application is not always enough to keep my lips smooth and soft. And with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we all want soft, kissable lips, right? I might be old and married but I do like a nice kiss from my husband on Valentine’s Day!
I decided that in order to combat the dry, crunchy winter lip phenomena I would try a sugar scrub for lips this weekend. Since I had splurged on some raspberries at the grocery store, I thought I would throw a few in to give it a nice pink color. I do love the smell of raspberries!

How much lip scrub does this make?
Since you need such a small amount of this sugar scrub for lips, you are measuring out your ingredients in tablespoons rather than cups. I found that the raspberries were ripe enough that I could smash them with a spoon and the sugar, coconut oil, and raspberries were very easy to mix together in a small bowl.
Once you have the ingredients mixed together, just gently apply this raspberry sugar scrub directly to your lips and rub very gently with your finger. Don’t be too rough, lips are tender!
Afterward, just wash off with a washcloth soaked in some warm water, pat dry, and apply your favorite lip balm. A few days of using this sugar scrub for lips will have your pucker ready to be kissed!
What you will need
There are only three simple ingredients in this scrub. Plus you will need a few basic kitchen supplies.
- White sugar
- Coconut oil
- Fresh raspberries
- Small mixing bowl
- Metal spoon for mixing
- Small storage jars (I like the one-ounce glass storage jars but you can use whatever small container you have on hand. I upcycled an old metal container for this one)
How to store homemade lip scrubs
Store the lip scrub in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Just make sure to write a label and put it on the container so you know what is inside! To reuse, simply take out a tablespoon or so of your homemade sugar scrub and massage it onto your lips again. Enjoy!

I’m a hoarder of Chapstick myself. I have a tube by the bed, in the car, 3 in my purse, 2 at my desk, 1 in the bathroom. It’s a little ridiculous, hah. I think this would be awesome! I’m allergic to coconut so I could leave out the oil but this would be great for the girls on Valentine’s day too.
Hello, my name is Diane and I am a lipbalm addict 🙂
I am always having trouble with my lips during the winter. I should try this!
I love making my own beauty products!! This sounds like a great recipe! I have never tried a sugar scrub for lips before.
My husband makes fun of me and my lip product obsession and I find them in the dryer a lot too hahha. I definitely could use a scrub so I might just make this today! This harsh desert winter is really getting to my skin!
ooooh, this sounds soooo yummy!!! I am a lip balm addict as well (Im joining the group here—lipbalm anon) and I love the idea of a scrub first!
Ooo, I need to try this for my daughter! She’s 12 and has been suffering super chapped lips although I’m pretty sure she’d lick it off LOL!
This looks delish! And I already have everything laying around to make this… Yep. I need raspberry sugar scrub. I know what I’m doing when Fox goes to bed tonight!
It smells so wonderfully of fresh berries! Have fun with it!
This sounds good enough to eat but oh so soothing!
We found this really straightforward to make, but really effective – and it’s natural; thank you.
glad it worked well for you!
Would it work with raw sugar??? Please answer asap 🙂
I would assume it would work the same!
how long would this last for? Is there an expiry date/ timeline?
I would say at least a few weeks, more if you keep it in the fridge!
Can you use a preservative with a Lip Scrub for long use? If so what kind that is not harmful t the body.?
I generally avoid adding preservatives to my beauty products since I am not sure how well they work and if they are safe for skin.
Hi! These scrubs sound scrumptious!! What size jar are you using to store your scrub in?
Thank you in advance,
For lip scrubs, I use very small ones since you don’t need to make much. I think they are only about one ounce. If you search for lip scrub jars you should come up with a few options.
