A lip scrub is a cute idea as Christmas gift. It is the solution if you have to do a lot of tiny presents for a big group of friends or if you just don’t want to spend a lot of money in presents. You will need only a few ingredients and 30 minutes of your time. 🙂 To realise a unique present, I decided to add it something fresh and unusual that could act also as gently scrub. Kiwi was the answer.
Kiwi has a lot of nutrients such as vitamins C,E, K but also magnesium and antioxidants. For this recipe, I decided to use only the small black seeds to donate also an exotic appearance to the final product.

- 2 kiwi
- 3 teaspoons of white sugar
- 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil (find it here) or olive oil in alternative
- a few drops of tocopherol (you can find it here)
Procedure for Lip Scrub:
1- pour 1 teaspoon of sugar inside of an empty container;
2-cut a kiwi and collect the seeds;
3- pour the seeds into the container with the sugar. Be careful in this step!! If the seeds are too much, the water that is contained into the green flesh can dissolve the sugar!! Start adding a few seeds and then check immediately the consistency. If it is liquid, try adding more sugar.
4- Mix the ingredients;
5- Add jojoba oil. Jojoba oil will help the lips keeping them hydrated. Other benefits about jojoba oil here!
6- Add some drops of tocopherol. Tocopherol acts as natural antioxidant, helping against the rancidity of oils.
At this point the lip scrub is ready! Of course, we have to personalise a bit the packaging to make it a Christmas gift! I decided to print and glue on the lid the sentence “Happy Christmas”. Then, I decorated the edges by using acrylic colour and placed a little red bow.
I hope that this idea could be useful for you and that you enjoy your Christmas time!!:)
