DIY: Lip & Body Scrub

If you're a fan of Lush's lip scrubs, this post is definitely for you. I love that their lip scrubs are edible, but the products can be a little out pricey for the amount you get. Don't get me wrong, the products are great and generally last a long time, but why pay more when you can make something similar at home for a fraction of the price?

All you'll need for this is a sealable container, sugar, olive oil and a spoon. I chose to use a meyer lemon olive oil to add a little flavor. Any flavor or unflavored olive oil will do (I'd stay away from garlic though—unless you're into that kind of thing).

Hello! I just wanted to make a quick update on here, mostly to explain the lack of an April Favorites post— and other posts for that matter.

As any college student knows, April is a pretty crazy month. There are finals and professors like to make everything due on the same day. It's like they plan these things to stress us out as much as possible. With that and starting my new job, I've barely had time to think about what I loved in April.

BUT, because of my new job I've had a bit more spending money as of late which means I've been buying more beauty products and clothes. And that means more posts (hopefully).
