DIY Lip Scrub

Make your own DIY lip scrub with brown sugar and coconut oil and package it in a repurposed vintage container

DIY Lip Scrub

I love vintage containers and I pick them up second hand whenever I find them for a couple of dollars. You can use them to store all kinds of things and I especially like using them for self care products. They are great to store this DIY lip scrub in. The lip scrub can be made with ingredients you already have on hand.
