Shea butter lip scrub

Some of us tend to suffer from dry cracked lips in winter and whilst we may turn to our trusted pot of lip balm for all day hydration, using a lip scrub can be a very useful addition to your beauty routine. A lip scrub will exfoliate dead dry skin whilst the shea butter will supply much needed hydration and nourishment at this time of year. Make your own really quick and easy 3 (or 2) ingredient lip scrub at home using your beauty cupboard staples.

Shea butter lip scrub recipe

  • 1 tbs unrefined shea butter
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp honey (omit this for a vegan version)


Put all the ingredients together in a small jar and mix until well combined. You may adjust the quantities for desired consistency. Gently rub the mixture on your lips for a minute or so and rinse off with warm water.
