Lush Lip Scrub DIY


I picked up Lush's Bubble Gum lip scrub a couple of months ago and paid an outrageous $8 for this little baby. Don't get me wrong; the lip scrub works really well! But I decided that I would try to make it myself. My DIY version isn't exactly like what Lush sells, but it's a pretty good alternative. Follow the simple steps below to learn how to make your own lip scrub!






  1. Take any empty container that'll hold your lip scrub. I wanted to put it into a clear glass pot, but unfortunately, I could only find this (hideous) tupperware container. 
  2. Mix 3 teaspoons of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of oil. After experimenting, I found that the lip scrub works better when there's more sugar than there is oil.
  3. Add one drop of red food coloring if you want to make your lip scrub pink! Don't put too much in, or else the lip scrub will taste bitter!
  4. Apply onto lips! I usually lick it off of my lips when I'm done stubbing because it tastes so darn good : )
