It’s called the Cinnamon Cookie Lip Scrub because all the ingredients are taken from a cookie recipe, but used here for their incredible skincare properties instead!
Perfect for Christmas, your lips will taste and smell so good someone might try to nibble them. My favourite combination of cinnamon, ginger, sugar, oats, baking soda and olive oil, is the perfect remedy for kissable lips, even in the coldest of months.
The cinnamon and ginger smooth and stimulate your lips, magic for getting rid of dry flaky skin and leaving you with a plumper pout. While the oats and olive oil soften and moisturise, essential to prevent drying from matte lipsticks, and chilly weather. The use of sugar together with the baking soda, makes for a powerful exfoliant, please use only once every 1-2 weeks or 3-4 weeks if you have very sensitive skin.
The ingredients list below is a super rough guide, and it all depends on your specific products, it doesn’t need to be precise so long as everything is evenly mixed.
