Luscious Lips

Lips! delicious lips.. who doesn’t want to have lips that invite for a kiss…

I have quite plumpy lips (all natural, thanks mum & dad) and I struggle sometimes to find  a lip colour that works with me, i usually stick to nudes, oranges and golds… But lately I’ve seen a craze for Pink tones so I adventured into the “pinkiness” of lips and after searching for half an hour I found one from RIMMEL LONDON called Pink Blush! (around $5). Its quite a pale pink with a hint of metallic which is what I’ve seen going on at the moment I am totally in love with it BUT when iI applied it on I noticed my lips were a little bit chipped which made the lip colour look overworked and just not fresh!

So I went in the search for something else,  a Lip Scrub! yes first I wondered if my idea was a bit crazy but I searched on line and I turns out there is quite a few out there! Some are:

“Treat Kiss and Make It Butter Lip Scrub” (available on Amazon for $8) it has mixed reviews some love it some hate it.

“The Lip Scrub by Sarah Happ” is the most expensive of them all at $24 but has the best reviews is made with brown sugar and apparently works very well and tastes delicious…

“Bella Il Fiore Sugar Kisses Lip Scrub” it comes in peppermint and in strawberries & cream and its about $11 I found no reviews on line so I might have to order this one!!

Cheaper and greener options… Recipes you can make on your own at home for a fraction of the price:

Sugar Lip Scrub Sugarbaby
Mix a little of coarse sugar with a few drops of water.
Apply the mixture onto lips and gently rub it in in circular motions. Wash with lukewarm water and apply olive oil or vaseline to moisturise them.

Salt & Sugar Lip Scrub Beach Lips

Mix salt, white sugar and Vaseline or olive oil. Apply the mixture on your lips and gently rub the mixture to remove dead skin cells.
Wash your lips with water and your lips will be soft and smooth.

GrapeFruit Sugar Scrub Citrius heaven*

this one is my personal favourite, mix 1Tsp of Honey with 1Tsp of sugar and 3-4 drops of grapefruit. Apply mixture on lips rubbing gently and Voilà!

CAUTION: Don’t over scrub your lips because you can do more harm than good. Once a week is fine and use lots of lip moisturiser or lovely lip stick the rest of the week to lock in moisture

Happy Kissing!!
