How to make raspberry-strawberry sugar lip scrub

Raspberry strawberry sugar lip scrub

Strawberries, raspberries, sugar, oil.. Are we preparing a beauty recipe or something delicious to eat? Today’s recipe might sound yummy, but it will make your lips looks gorgeous.

So if you haven’t figured it out yet, today we will make strawberry sugar lip scrub. Oh wait, I almost forgot the raspberries. I had a hard time choosing between a strawberry sugar lip scrub or raspberry sugar lip scrub. Both sounded so yummy..

At the end I decided to present you the two recipes. The one that I will show you in details is a combination between both of them.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Difficulty: easy

Strawberry sugar lip scrub

  • clear glass jar, 15 ml (0.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 rounded tsp freeze dried strawberry powder
  • 1 tbsp strawberry seed oil

Raspberry sugar lip scrub

  • clear glass jar, 15 ml (0.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 rounded tsp freeze dried raspberry powder
  • 1 tbsp raspberry seed oil

The strawberry seed oil has distinctive wine scent, while the scent of the raspberry seed oil is delicate. No matter which oil you choose, you can’t be wrong. Both oils will help your cracked lips to get soft and kissable.

I decided to go with a combination of strawberry powder and raspberry seed oil. The quantity in the recipe is enough to fill 2 glass jars.

Ingredients

  • 2 clear glass jars, 15 ml (0.5 oz)
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 rounded tsp freeze dried strawberry powder
  • 2 tbsp raspberry seed oil

The high quantity of vitamin A and E in the raspberry seed oil makes it a great antioxidant.

How to use it

Exfoliate your lips once a week.

How long it lasts

The reason why I not used fresh fruits, but freeze dried powder is because in this way the shelf life of the lip scrub will be about a month. If you use fresh strawberries for the recipe, the lip scrub will lasts only few days and you have to keep it in a refrigerator.

How do you use strawberries or raspberries in homemade cosmetics? Do you prefer fresh fruits or freeze dried powder?
