DIY // Lip Balm, Lip Scrub and Face Mask

When scrolling through Pinterest do you always find yourself pinning DIY type posts? Well I always pin DIY beauty posts because I think it’s so fun and interesting to see what kind of products you can make from the comfort of your own home. I’ve come up with 3 different beauty products that I wanted to share with you all today, I was kindly sent a hamper kit from Mira Showers to create these products and I also grabbed a few extra things from around the home to make them just perfect. Mira Showers have teamed up with Midas Touch Craft to launch a campaign with some UK beauty bloggers so make sure you check out the #MiraMessMakers hashtag to see what the other bloggers made, I hope you enjoy my post!



Lip Balm
1. To create my lip balm I started by popping some soya wax into a microwavable container and heated it up until it was a liquid, it took about 3 minutes to fully soften to a liquid from wax.
2. I then poured this into my lip balm pot and added cocoa powder for a bit of flavour.
3. At this stage I broke up and ground a ginger tablet, the ginger causes the blood to rush to the surface of the lips causing the Kylie Jenner plump lip effect. I then added it to the mix along with the a Vitamin E tablet, I added Vitamin E to ensure the lips can be fully nourished for the winter season.
4. Lastly I added some shavings from a berry lipstick, I wanted to create a nice berry tone to the lip balm and I also popped in some coconut oil to create a more glossy effect.
5. Once all has been mixed well I popped in the fridge for an hour and hey presto you’ve got yourself a personalised nourishing lip balm! As easy as that!


Lip Scrub
1. The lip scrub is super easy to make, start by adding brown sugar to a small bowl.
2. Add some cinnamon for flavour.
3. Add honey to make the scrub stick together and form.
4. Add some Coconut Oil to create a nourishing scrub.
5. Mix together!
4. Pop in a pot and that’s it, you’ve created a nourishing and cleansing lip scrub!
Tip: Use this on your body and hands for extra smooth skin!
Face Scrub/Mask
1. I call this a scrub and mask because you could use it as both, add some oats to a bowl and squeeze half a lemon into it.
2. Pop to the fridge and grab some natural yogurt and mix it in with the oats and lemon juice, I used a mandarin yogurt because mandarin helps to reduce the sign of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes it also gives your skin a healthy looking glow!
3. Finally add some honey and some vanilla and fudge essential oil for scent then mix and pop in a container!
4. Apply to the skin using circular motions, leave on for 5-10 minutes and be amazed with the results. Soft glowing skin!I hope you enjoyed this DIY type post, it was super fun to create!
