What are the ingredients for a Sugar Lip Scrub?
This diy lip sugar scrub is made with just 3 simple ingredients, all of which are likely to be in your pantry.
- Sugar – I used raw organic sugar for my lip scrub but white granulated sugar or soft brown sugar would work just fine too. Sugar is an exfoliator that helps remove dead skin cells.
- Honey – Honey, any is fine. This will help rehydrate your lips and make them nice and smooth.
- Coconut Oil – I suggest using coconut oil if you have it or olive oil will work too. Coconut oil has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and will help moisture dry lips.
How do you make a Sugar Lip Scrub?
- Add the sugar, melted honey, and coconut oil in a bowl.
- Mix until well combined.
- Add to a small mason jar.
- Add printable label and ribbon if this is for a gift!
This recipe will make 1 x 4oz jelly mason jar from Ball.
How to use this DIY Sugar Lip Scrub
Scoop out about a tablespoon and rub the sugar scrub directly onto your lips.
Move in circular motion across your lips to help remove dead skin cells and moisturise.
Rinse off with water and a wash cloth. You should be able to notice the suppleness of your revitalised lips. It’s such a nice treat!
If you’re like me and get dry lips all the time use this scrub a couple times a week. It really makes a difference.

I used a vinyl sticker paper, which worked well. You could just use a card stock and stick them on with double sided tape!

Add this to a gift basket like these ideas I recently shared. Thoughtful gifts are always appreciated!
How to Store this Sugar Lip Scrub?
This sugar scrub is made using natural ingredients so it’s always best to use these things quicker than store bought products.
Store this is a cool, dry place or in the fridge.
I would recommend using this scrub within 2-3 months of making it.
You may find the coconut oil hardens if you aren’t in super warm climate. Pop the jar into some warm water to melt it then use.
