- I've combined a bunch of different ingredients that you could find in your kitchen to create perfectly plump, beautiful, glowing lips. I got you covered. Let's do it. This lip scrub is really simple to throw together and a lot of people have these ingredients at home anyways. So we have some coconut oil, which is really, really nourishing for the skin. And we have some avocado oil. It's all really really good things. You're moisturizing your lips while your salting off the dead skin cells and we're plumping the lips with some cinnamon and some peppermint extract. So what I love about this, first of all it tastes really good. So as you're like, putting it on your lips, kind of feels like you're brushing your teeth in a way 'cause it's just really refreshing mint flavor, but it also helps to plump up your lips and I remember a few years ago I used to buy this lip venom and it also kind of like, sizzled your lips a little bit and it made them tingly and that helps make your lips red and plumpy, which is kind of what you're looking for. You're looking for super kissable lips. So we have some brown sugar and that's what's going to help exfoliate them and then some honey and honey is always really, really moisturizing and nourishing, really good for your skin. Mmm it smells so good. I love honey. So that's it. You're just going to mix it all together and the texture of this is going to change depending on if it's warm or if it's cold because the coconut oil is more firm in cold temperatures and is more melted in warmer temperatures, so depending on where you are, but you could always either stick it in the microwave for a few seconds or you could put it in your fridge to kind of change it up if you need to change the texture. But this is looking just right. Get out any lumps you may have. Perfect. Alright so we're going to try it. You take a little bit with your finger and just like scrub it on your lips. Oh it's so minty. It tastes really good. It's edible; you could eat it. Yum. Alright so you're just going to wipe off your lips, or you could wash them off, whichever you prefer, and you just feel how silky smooth they are and plumpy. I love how they feel fresh from the mint. Oh and they're kind of like tingly from the cinnamon. That's really nice, and what better way to celebrate National Kissing Day than with perfectly plump, beautiful, soft, kissable lips? Get on it. Your loved one is gonna thank me and you. Enjoy!
