My anniversary is coming up so I am getting everything ready that I will be needing for date night. I have a great DIY brown sugar lip scrub recipe that I like to use to keep my lips soft and kissable.
I use this a lot now that it is getting colder and my lips tend to get chapped. It’s one of my favorite frugal beauty hacks.
I love making this brown sugar lip scrub because it works really well, it only costs pennies to make, and it tastes yummy!
I use this scrub about twice a week but I always make sure to use it when I am getting ready for date night. You only need 3 ingredients, the fourth is optional
DIY Brown Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe:
- 1 Tbs. of coconut oil
- 1 Tbs. of honey
- 1 Tbs. of brown sugar
- 1/8 Tsp. of vanilla extract (optional)
You will add the coconut oil, honey, and brown sugar to a bowl and mix it until it is all incorporated.
I then like to add vanilla extract to make it smell and taste even better. You can add any flavor you want: almond, peppermint, etc. or you can just leave it out all together. It should look something like this:
- At Home Facial for Sensitive Skin
- DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner
- Top 10 Anti-Aging Products for your Budget
I found a cute little glass container with a chalkboard lid for only $1 so I use that to store the DIY brown sugar lip scrub. You can use any kind of small container.
It is a great way to reuse any old glass makeup containers you have laying around. I keep this in the fridge to make it last a little longer.
You just apply the lip scrub and rub it on your lips for about 30 seconds. I then wipe it off with a warm cloth and apply some lip balm to lock in the moisture. It has helped keep my lips soft and smooth. I love this stuff!
That is just one of the things I do to get ready for date night but there are some date night essentials I have to have with me.
I like to keep some lipstick, a mirror, mints, and tissues in my bag. Since it is getting to be cold and flu season, I also like to keep some hand sanitizer in my purse.
I am able to fit all of these date night essentials into my adorable clutch. I like having a small bag to take on a date night. These are my must haves, along with my phone and wallet, of course.
What are some of your date night must haves? Do you have any date night rituals? Don’t forget to try the DIY brown sugar lip scrub recipe and let me know how it works for you.
