Make this yummy watermelon lip scrub in minutes with 3 ingredients you already have at home!
I don’t know about you, but it seems like my lips dry out just as much in the summer as they do in the winter! It drives me crazy! But it does give me a good excuse to make these yummy sugar scrubs!
Lip scrubs are super easy to make and are a great afternoon craft for the kids. My boys love mushing the sugar and coconut oil in their fingers. It’s really affordable too! I get the containers I keep my lip scrubs in from Dollar Tree (you can get a 10 pack for $1), and I have the sugar, coconut oil and Kool-Aid already in my pantry.
Lip scrubs also make great gifts! I made these Cherry Limeade Lip Scrubs for the aids at my son’s school for Teacher Appreciation Week and I made extra of these Watermelon Lip Scrubs and plan on giving them to a few girlfriends.
You can customize these lip scrubs to whatever flavor you’d like. If you’re making a large batch (more than 1 cup of sugar), you may want to add a few drops of flavor oil (I use LorAnn flavor oils that you can get off Amazon, Walmart or any hobby store). This batch made 3 containers full and the scent and flavor of Watermelon was perfect!

To use these lip scrubs, get a pinch out of the container and rub across your lips. Then rub your lips together for 15 seconds or so and then blot with a wet wash cloth. The sugar will help remove any dead skin you have on your lips while the coconut oil leaves your lips feeling silky smooth. I keep a container of these lip scrubs by the sink in my bathroom and use it twice a day after I brush my teeth.
