Adapted this recipe from Edens Garden.  In the original recipe it uses mango butter, but I am allergic to mango.  I have to substitute the mango butter with something more suitable for my sensitive skin.  Created two different recipes to test and see what works best for me.  Exfoliating your lips help remove dead skin. It lifts and removes dirt (or toxins) from the lips.  It suggests to use a toothbrush, but I will be using the dk&t (Do Kiss And Tell) LIPSCRUB BRUSH.

TO USE

Lip Exfoliator Lip Scrub Brush_phzuniquediva

Pull out your handy dandy lipscrub brush (or toothbrush if you do not have one). You can purchase one using this link (dk&t lipscrub brush).  Wet brush prior to using.

Apply the lip exfoliator to your lips as if you are applying lip balm. If you used the 2 oz jars, dip the wet brush into the exfoliator and then apply exfoliant to lips with the hex side.  ***If you need to, remove any excess sugar.***  Scrub lips: outer lining, top, bottom and corners.  The goal is to remove any dry skin, dirt and impurities. Rinse lips with warm water. Dab dry. Vuala!

This was my own personal experience.  This is not a paid post nor is this post affiliated with Eden’s Garden or dk&t.  Pictures are proof of my own personal experience. I hope you enjoyed making the DIY Lip Exfoliator. Please feel free to leave a comment below. Would love to hear your experience with either the Lip Scrub Brush or the DIY Lip Exfoliator.
