Pucker Up with this Raspberry Sugar Scrub for Lips!

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.  I would 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 that 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!

Pucker Up with this Raspberry Sugar Scrub for Lips!

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!  Afterwards, 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!

  1. 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.
