Lemonade Lip Scrub Recipe

Lemonade-Lip-Scrub-RecipeCracked, dry, flaky lips are unattractive and also irritating, and lip scrubs help prevent this, leaving your lips feeling smooth and silky!

Here’s my easy, inexpensive recipe for a yummy lemonade lip scrub. Caster sugar is usually used for baking, but normal sugar would be granulated sugar which is too coarse to use as an exfoliator and can cause the lips to bleed.

Caster sugar has smaller granules and is much more delicate and effective you can find caster sugar at your local grocery store though! Now onto the lemonade lip scrub recipe.

Lemonade Lip Scrub Instructions

To make this lip food, you will need: a small amount of lemon juice, a teaspoon of petroleum jelly (original Vaseline), a small tin or jar, 4 teaspoons of caster sugar and two toothpicks


Firstly, gradually add the lemon juice to the caster sugar and mix with your provided toothpick until a thick gooey paste is formed…


Keep adding the lemon juice gradually! The lemon juice acts as a lip cleanser- the acid of the lemon kills the bacteria on the lips. It also tastes great too! Do not add too much lemon juice in one go! If you’ve added too much juice, just even it out with a couple more teaspoons of sugar. The sugar acts as an exfoliator to the lips, removing the dead skin.


The paste should look like this.

Now leave the paste to the side for a while. We need to heat our petroleum jelly in the microwave for about 2 minutes.

After two minutes in the microwave, the petroleum jelly should be liquid as shown above. The petroleum jelly acts as a moisturizer and gives your new soft lips a lovely polish!

Now pour the paste into the basin of petroleum jelly and mix with a couple of toothpicks. The paste will become runny again if you have noticed.

We don’t want runny paste! To re-thicken the paste, gradually add teaspoons of caster sugar.

And a little more lemon juice to add some flavour!

The paste should be a lot thicker than before as the petroleum jelly hardens, and should look like this. (shown above) Finally, pour your lip scrub into your tin/jar and you’re done!

Taa daaa! a long lasting, homemade, tasty lip scrub that can be used anytime and anywhere!
