Homemade Mint Chocolate Lip Gloss + Sugar Lip Scrub

Mint Chocolate Homemade Lip gloss Everything is so dry in winter – my lips especially! I have about 10 tubes of Chapstick stashed in every corner like a squirrel. Since my sister’s birthday is tomorrow, I whipped up a batch of homemade lip gloss and lip scrub. I mean, Valentine’s Day is coming up, right? It’s time to get those lips ready!

Mint Chocolate Homemade Lip Gloss

Lip Gloss Recipe Ingredients

Mint chocolate is my all-time favorite ice cream flavor. I’m the person who orders the same flavor over and over. Do you? So if I can’t have ice cream on my diet, then I will have mint chocolate lip gloss!

You will need:

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated beeswax (you can get small pieces at Whole Foods)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 10 chocolate chips
  • 3-4 drops peppermint oil
  • lip gloss container

Mint Chocolate Lip Gloss This is so easy! Just put all of the ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. About 1 minute. Stir together until mixed and pour into a small container. Let it cool and start licking your lips!

DIY Lip gloss This recipe makes enough to fill up more than one small container. So you can either cut the recipe in half or grab all of your extra Chapstick tubes. Just dig out the old lip gloss and fill with the chocolate lip gloss recipe.

Homemade Sugar Lip Scrub

Homemade Sugar Lip Scrub

Have you ever exfoliated your lips? I don’t do it nearly as often as I should, but it feels amazing. You only need a couple of ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons sugar (you can use pretty much any sugar: raw sugar, brown sugar, regular sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil

DIY Sugar Lip Scrub Mix everything together in a small bowl until you have a paste. Use your finger to massage into your lips and rinse with warm water. You’ll be tempted to eat the mixture – it tastes pretty darn good!

Lip Exfoliator You can keep any extra in a small container. Highly recommended before date nights!

    Did you use the bees wax from a votive candle?
    My Whole Foods store was out of bees wax but I saw they have votive candles that are 100% bees wax… Was thinking I might try this recipe with the candle wax.

      I’ve never tried it with wax from a candle – but the first place I bought beeswax it was in the candlemaking section so I’m guessing it’s the same stuff.

    My lips are pretty dry and scaly right now from being sick–I need this badly! Mint chocolate is one of my favorite flavors too and YES, I always order the same flavor when we get ice cream. :) But I have different favorite flavors at different ice cream shops!
