After self-isolation, we, having lost the habit of salons, continue to experiment with homemade beauty recipes. This time we found the most interesting options for lip scrubs. Honey-coconut, oatmeal, coffee, with cinnamon and turmeric … - sounds beautiful, but are they really effective? Read our honest reviews on whether a home scrub can replace a store or salon one.

Scrub with salt and honey

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-4 drops of olive oil

Tested by Natalya Pikus, editor-in-chief of BeautyHack.ru:

I have dry skin on my lips - to wear matte lipsticks, you need to guess the right moment, make a scrub and a mask so that the skin looks even. I usually use ready-made scrubs, but natural remedies always seem to be more nutritious and effective. For this recipe, I mixed honey with sea salt - I chose the one where the grains are medium in size. The olive oil has made the consistency more even.

It is easy to apply, I massaged my lips with the mixture for about two minutes, then left it on my lips for another 5 minutes. Then I washed it off first with warm, then cold water - such a contrast shower to make the blood flow. The effect turned out to be pleasant: the salt removed the keratinized particles, honey and oil nourished the lips, they became soft. One nuunas - try not to get this mass on your tongue during the procedure: salt and honey is a so-so dessert.

This mass is enough for at least four times, I don’t like to store products made from natural ingredients, it’s better to make it fresh later. Therefore, the number of components can be safely reduced by half or three times.

Oatmeal scrub with milk

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp oatmeal,
  • 1 tbsp milk,
  • 2 drops of essential oil (roses were recommended in the recipe, but I only found orange oil)

Tested by Natalya Pikus, editor-in-chief of BeautyHack.ru:

To be honest, this mixture is more of a lip mask than a scrub. The oatmeal quickly got soaked in milk and could no longer have any exfoliating function. It's like driving wet bread over your lips. Nevertheless, oatmeal with milk is an excellent nutrient if you, like me, have a lot of dry lips on the delicate skin, so arranging such a spa for her is only beneficial. Ideally - still gently scrub the lips, and then apply this product with oatmeal and hold for 5-10 minutes. But honestly, I’m unlikely to repeat this experience.

Coffee scrub

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coarsely ground coffee
  • 1 tsp olive oil.

Tested by Tatyana Chernikova, editor of BeautyHack.ru:

Coffee scrub has been my favorite for years. One of the best exfoliants among folk remedies, it gently exfoliates and moisturizes. And how it smells! For a full body exfoliation, I usually use a thick powder that is practically ground to dust. And I don't add any oil - it already stands out from the grains, leaving a light film on the skin. But for the lips, for the sake of experiment, I made a larger grind and mixed it with olive oil.

Of the advantages - the substance is easily applied and washed off, it really removes dead skin particles, nourishes the skin and smoothes fine wrinkles. Of the minuses, the combination of ingredients is still strange. Imagine that you accidentally toss a handful of olives into a cappuccino and take a sip. This persistent smell under my nose then pursued me for half a day. So I still had to adapt the recipe for myself. The most successful option seemed to me a scrub of finely ground cake and almond oil. More gentle and with a pleasant aroma. The effect is the same, but more pleasant to use.

Scrub with honey, cinnamon and turmeric

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp honey,
  • a pinch of ground turmeric and cinnamon.

Tested by Tatyana Chernikova, editor of BeautyHack.ru:

Honey, sugar, cinnamon - oh, how immediately I wanted cinnabons or gingerbread cookies. I warn you - for those with a sweet tooth who suddenly remembered that it was summer outside and decided to give up desserts, this is still a challenge. But if you accidentally lick your lips, you won't have to frown: the taste of turmeric is almost not felt, and the mixture itself is quite pleasant.

On this, the dignity of the scrub for me, alas, ended. It turned out to be easy to apply and wash off, but after that the lips seemed to have no more moisture. The skin was smooth, but I wanted to lick them all the time, like after a walk on a windy day. I took out an SOS-agent - beeswax balm with vitamin E. But after half an hour, I was surprised to find that my lips were dry again. Although the effect is usually enough for the whole day, and the skin of my lips itself is normal, which does not require constant moisture. I think it's still a matter of turmeric - it is usually used for oily and problem skin as a drying agent. Or, maybe, an individual reaction of the body - with natural ingredients, this happens, up to allergies. But I would not repeat the experiment.

Coconut honey scrub

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp thermal coconut oil,
  • 1 tsp liquid honey,
  • 1 tbsp Sahara

Tested by Kristina Semina, editor of BeautyHack.ru:

I am a longtime fan of coconut oil, especially in my beauty routine. I love to apply it on the body after a shower or on the ends of my hair before washing my hair. I have never done a lip scrub at home, so it was interesting to try. After warming up the coconut oil, I added liquid honey and brown sugar to it, mixed well and immediately applied it to my lips. I felt the effect immediately - the lips became moisturized, soft and smooth. The only thing is if you, like me, have sensitive lip skin, be careful with sugar. For me it turned out to be quite large and tough, at one point I felt that it was possible to damage the skin. But the combination of oil and honey is a great option for a moisturizing and nourishing mask. This option can definitely be advised to everyone!

Scrub with sugar and baking soda

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp baking soda,
  • 2 tsp Sahara,
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Tested by Kristina Semina, editor of BeautyHack.ru:

I have heard about the beneficial properties of baking soda more than once, so I decided to try this scrub out of curiosity. I mixed baking soda with ordinary white sugar and olive oil, applied it to the lips, massaged it a little, and washed it off with water. But, to be honest, I didn't notice the result. If the coconut-honey scrub, which I wrote about above, at least moisturized the skin, then nothing happened at all in this version. Perhaps the composition with baking soda, as they say on the forums, is more suitable for very dry lips, and on normal skin the effect is not so noticeable. Another tip from users: use jojoba oil instead of olive oil.

Honey and semolina scrub

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp decoys
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of cardamom
  • 0.5 tsp olive oil

I am skeptical about the idea of ​​mixing masks and scrubs at home. Plus, I never saw the point of making a lip scrub at home - one jar from the store is enough for a year, or even more (the main thing is that the shelf life does not end). But I could not ignore the idea of ​​the editorial board and, I must say, enjoyed the process. I mixed all the ingredients until a thick mass with a spicy smell. I put it on my lips, scrubbed for a minute and washed off with warm water. Using such a scrub is as comfortable as possible, there is no feeling of stickiness, tightness or burning. Semolina smooths the surface of the lips well without scratching them. There is also a moisturizing effect. The resulting mixture from the above amount of ingredients is enough for 4-5 applications - I will keep the scrub in the refrigerator.
