Hey guys! Make your own all-natural lip scrub with sugars and spices easily found in your own kitchen! With a bit of tinkering, you can even make it taste like a snickerdoodle cookie. My first foray into homemade beauty products, first via Squareknot and now Instructables. <3 This makes roughly two little servings that I packed into two small 13 mL jars.


For my original supah' pretty guide, check out


1 small mixing bowl

1 little spreader to mix with

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons white granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon of olive oil

1 teaspoon of honey

1/4 teaspoon (or just a few drops) of vanilla extract

3 or more dashes of cinnamon

Step 1: Add Both Sugars in a Small Bowl

Step 2: Mix!

The brown sugar I used had a tad bit of moisture in it, which caused it to clump a bit, so you might do a bit of chopping when mixing. This'll go away when you add the other ingredients. Just look at that adorable little pineapple spreader. <3

Step 3: Add the Olive Oil, Then Honey, Then Mix. Oh, and Add the Vanilla Extract Too.

It's helpful to mix each time you add an ingredient to get a good consistency. Also: Sooooo, I totally wanted to use a little 'bebe 1/2 teaspoon for this photo. So yep. Done.

Step 4: Add a Couple Dashes of Cinnamon to Taste

I started out with three light taps, and added more from there until it tasted almost like a snickerdoodle cookie. Mmmmmm.

Step 5: Mix Super Well!

Step 6: Transfer to Little Containers for Friends

And make sure the lids go on tightly, don't want to attract ants in the summertime!

Step 7: And You're Done!

To use, simply rub the sugar on your lips gently, then lick off the rest! Hope you enjoyed my guide!

Psssst, for anyone who's curious, I help build this!
