DIY Spa Treat at Home: Strawberry Sugar Lip Scrub
Although we are mostly stuck at home now and has reduced meeting people daily, there is no excuse for chapped and dry lips. Keeping lips moisturized and healthy is easy with simple food and pantry in the house. I decided to try this indulgent sugar lip scrub as a nice and relaxing afternoon treat. What do you need? 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon raw or manuka honey, 1 teaspoon coconut oil Let’s do it!
Measure and mix the ingredients in a bowl until a paste is formed.
Apply to lips with fingertips and massage on your lips gently.
Rinse with warm water and follow with lip balm.
Keep any remainder paste in a small container.Does it work? My lips are generally pretty healthy without any lines and cracks but it definitely can do a brightening and moisture boost. The scrub is a great exfoliant on my lips and I do feel that they are softer and more tender after the scrub helps remove some dead skin cells. Besides, the paste was pretty tasty! I was tempted to eat some of it off my lips. Definitely worth a try, especially since most lip scrubs can be pretty expensive. Why should it work? Packed with antioxidants, honey can soothes dry, irritated lips because of its mild antiseptic effect that speeds healing of wounds. Sugar is a gentle ingredient to polish sensitive areas like the face and lips while coconut oil acts as a carrier oil to add moisture and hydrate your lips. Extra Tips:
You may also add a small strawberry into a mix for a boost of vitamin C boost.
The lip scrub also be used on the rest of the face. Just cleanse your face before and after a scrub.
Use this scrub just once a week.

Few favourites that I’m reaching for everyday. 🌟dr. barbara sturm Face Cream Rich, since my skin is getting really dry due to this unpredictable weather and dehydration this gem is really helping my skin look healthy and hydrated. Although it’s rich but not heavy at all and works so well as a primer under my daily minimal makeup. So good! 🌟clean beauty collective Warm Cotton Perfume this fragrance is so refreshing and so beautifully warm a bit sweet but seriously not overpowering, you can get away with that it is that lush! 🌟nudestix lip and cheek pencils are so good I think I need to pick up more shades, the shade ‘sin’ is so gorgeous mixed with tom ford‘ sweet mystery’ it seriously is my everyday springy nude. obsessed with the combo!

KYLIE COSMETICS VELVET LIQUID LIP KIT SWATCH
This is Kylie Cosmetics’ velvet liquid lip kit in the shade Charm, a dusty pink rose. If you were turned off by Kylie’s original matte formulas, then this is for you! The velvet liquid lips have all the pigment and lasting power of her original lip kits, minus the dryness. I find this formula super comfortable to apply and wear and it doesn’t pick up on dry patches too badly, although I would recommend using a bit of lip balm before application. This color is great. The swatch from the website is a more accurate representation of the color - my phone camera seems to make all my products look a lot more warm-toned. I do really enjoy her lip pencils as well. They are comparable to Charlotte Tilbury’s, in my opinion. #lipswatch KYLIE COSMETICS - Velvet Lip Kit

💶👄Battle of the Designer Lip Balms!👄💶
I’m a total lip balm addict! I’ve tried more balms, from drug-store to name-brand, than I can count... As my most used & most representative accessory (I am known to have a lip balm in reach at all times) I had a phase of trying lots of fancy lip balms. Though you are paying for the brand & nicer packaging than your average chapstick, most of these are way better than your average drugstore chapstick. Mainly due to ingredients; Because petroleum & it’s derivatives like mineral oil, petrolatum & paraffin wax have been heavily restricted in Europe... all the balms here are manufactured in France. 🇫🇷 There are amazing high quality & “clean” lip balms at every price point now, more than ever. This post is just comparison piece on some boujee balms I’ve tried😋 GIVENCHY - Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick 🌹Black rose oil🔌 I would definitely love to purchase this again. It hydrates the way I want a balm to. The shade I love: ‘16 Noir Revelateur’ is a “mood” balm with a more sophisticated deeper color than most ones that turn bright pink on me. So that being said it’s not a great balm to use with out a mirror, or continuously while you’re bored because it will get darker & darker & maybe be outside of your lip line. But I truly love this, also has a wow factor, friends would always ask “wtf is that??!” because it looks like black lipstick. CHANEL - ROUGE COCO BAUME Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm 🥀Oh Chanel, Chanel... I wanted to love this because, I mean, how chic?! Such a classic little cutie. It had a very nice rose scent at first that sadly wasn’t there like halfway through. It was unfortunately one of those balms that had a nice slick & nice shine, but no real hydration or moisturization, I just kept wanting to apply & no real relief. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick Balm This is a really nice balm, due to its 65% oil content, pomegranate extract & macadamia butter. It’s technically a lipstick that comes in different shades, I’m reviewing : ‘42 Baume Midi Minuit’ — it’s a clear balm with lots of pearly white micro iridescence. I love the scent, smells like peaches🍑! The iridescence makes it not great for me personally, it kinda washes me out. GIVENCHY - Le Rouge Perfecto Beautifying Lip Balm So, I couldn’t track down the ingredients... But it doesn’t matter this balm sucks!!! I tried a regular version & one with flecks of glitter. It’s super waxy, doesn’t want to go on smooth... oh & the glittery one was scratchy as hell! ARMANI beauty - Neo Nude Ecstasy Balm It was hard to find full ingredients on this but the caper oil is amazing. This is the most moisturizing of the bunch, with a creamy texture that looks like glass on the lips. DIOR - DIOR Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm Mango butter🥭Only 4 stars because I really miss the lip glow balm in the opaque pink tube!! 5 ⭐️ for being THE CUTEST!

Tint in Balm by YSL ✨
This tint in balm by Yves Saint Laurent has such an amazing texture. Its so light weight and moisturizing for everyday use for someone who doesn’t like to wear lipstick but wants some sheer colour. The reason why I gave it 3 stars would be the colour. When I went to the store to try this product it looked more red on my lips which is what I was looking for. When I tried it at home it looks more orangey which I’m not a big fan of. So im not sure if it was the store lighting that made it look nice or what exactly.
