Delightful Cherry Lip Scrub Recipe

Posted in DIY, Home

Lipgloss has a special place in my heart. When I was in the 7th grade, my friends and I used to compete with all the lipglosses we could get our hands on. Pineapple, strawberry and apple — we were entranced by their flavors and the glosss made our lips pretty and shiny. I specifically remember a good friend of mine having a large tin that had about 7 fruity lip glosses embedded in it. I remember thinking, “this is so amazing.” Now that I’m grown, I still keep my eyes peeled for that tin, but I haven’t found it yet. This affinity continued on into college, where I had a desk that I kept my lip gloss collection on that would sometimes reach 20. I also had an extensive belt collection. Even now, when I go to Target or CVS, picking up a lipgloss is a knee-jerk reaction along with picking up a home/decor magazine to read.

 This Cherry Lip Scrub is the pre treatment before you apply your lip gloss. There’s nothing worse than putting gloss over lips that are cracked and rough. Also, this is a fun activity to do with your little girl, so she’ll know how to make lip scrub herself. My daughter Chloe loves lip gloss just like I do. She always has her eyes on whatever new lip glosses I buy. She keeps a couple in her desk at school. Check out this yummy Cherry Lip Scrub to get kissably soft lips that will make your lipgloss or lipstick look flawless!
