If you are looking for a DIY present this year, a home-made lip sugar scrub might be just what you need. Most store-bought scrubs may taste sweet, but they contain ingredients that should not be ingested. This scrub combines simple ingredients that are entirely edible.
I first thought of this scrub when I read the ingredients on the Wickedly Prime Salted Cocoa Truffle Spread. Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Powder–these ingredients appear in a lot of high-end makeup. The fact that it does not contain palm oil is also a benefit.
This spread can be purchased on Amazon.com. It tastes delicious–like the inside of a chocolate truffle–and can be used in a variety of recipes. (I topped my holiday scones
with this spread.)
The other ingredients can probably be found in your kitchen–brown sugar and honey. I used Manuka Honey because that is what I had on hand. But any type of honey will work.
3 heaping tablespoons of Salted Cocoa Truffle Spread
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
3 tablespoons of honey
Large Spoon for stirring
2 Four Ounce Ball Jars with lids
Mix the ingredients in the bowl and stir until smooth. You may need to add a few drops of water if the brown sugar is hard or clumpy. Pour into the jars and cover with the lids.
This does not need to be refrigerated and makes a perfect gift for a person who has dry, flaked lips due to the cold weather.
I hope you have enjoyed my gift countdown. Next week because of the holiday I will be re-running some of my favorite posts of the year. I hope that you will enjoy them, and continue to enjoy my blog in 2018.
What will the new year bring us? Only time will tell!
Note: This is not a sponsored post. I purchased all of the products myself.
