DIY - Lip Scrub

Hello Everyone,
Now that the cold, rainy weather is amongst us (here in Britain, anyways!) I find that my lips get more and more chapped, that sometimes a lip balm won't cut it! So i really like to us a lip scrub! There are many on the market reay to be bought, like the LUSH ones which seems to be a popular chose, however i have never bought it, as i cant pay the £4.95 for such little product! I know £5 isnt that much when you think about it, but when i can make it myself for next to nothing, i cant seem to part with my moolah. So i thought i would tell you how i make mine.

What you will need:
Sugar - Brown or White
Vaseline or any kind of Petroleum Jelly
Olive Oil
Honey or Golden Syrup (Normally, you would use Honey but i prefer Golden Syrup)
A small-ish Container
A small mixing bowl
A spoon
Method:1. First, make sure you have cleaned out you container and then take about a tea spoon (depending on the size of your container and how much you want) of petroluem jelly and place it into you mixing bowl and add about the same amount of sugar.
2. Add about a teaspoon of olive oil and mix with the sugar and petroluem jelly
3. Add in either your golden syrup or honey - this step is optional.
4. Scoop your lip scrub into your container.
5 Place you lip scrub into the fridge for it too set.
This is the final product, i think it turned out pretty good. It makes my lips super soft and definatly will help during these cold, winter months.

I hope this was helpful and thanks for reading.
