Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub
Christmas is just around the corner, and in terms of gift-giving, it’s crunch time! If you’ve been buying presents, decorations, and tons of groceries, you may feel like you’re about to wear a hole right through your credit card. Maybe the thought of battling the mall crowds to pick up your last few gifts has you trembling in your boots. Well, I’ve got good news: you can whip up a batch of Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub for a last-minute gift that’s easy, affordable, and totally yummy!
Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub smells like Thin Mints in a jar, except this version exfoliates, moisturizes, and contains way fewer calories! Made with coconut oil, cocoa powder, sugar, and mint fragrance oil, this all-natural lip scrub buffs away dry, flaky skin while leaving your kisser feeling soft and minty fresh. (Look out, mistletoe!)
I love scooping a few spoonfuls of this Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub into portable screw-top containers or mini Mason jars. Adorn them with ribbon or twine, secure on a label, and voilà! You’ve got a perfect little gift to add to a homemade spa set or to stuff into stockings or to give to a friend alongside some delicious homemade fudge brownies!
But your “Nice” list recipients won’t be the only ones enjoying smooth, kissable lips this season. After your first whiff, you’ll want to keep a jar of this scrumptious scrub nearby all winter long! Just dab and rub a pea-sized blob of this Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub onto your lips, and they’ll be restored to their plump, natural glory. Not to mention, you’ll marvel at how smoothly you can apply lipstick over that freshly-buffed skin.
Homemade Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub makes a wonderful last-minute gift that also comes straight from your heart (and your kitchen!). Plus, it’s the tastiest way to show your lips some love this holiday season!
