Super Easy Lip Plumper

So, today I'll show you how to make a super easy lip plumper. Perfect for valentines day or just as a little pampering for yourself. Use

What you need:

  • Small plastic pots
  • Cocktail stick/Chopstick to mix 
  • 2tsp Vaseline (or enough to fill the pot up)
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)

How to:

  1. Melt your Vaseline in the microwave, in a microwavable bowl, for about 15-25sec, or until liquid. 
  2. Add the ground cinnamon and mix thoroughly
  3. Add cayenne and mix thoroughly
  4. Add sugar and mix
  5. If necessary, put in microwave for another 15sec to liquefy a little more and infuse everything. 
  6. Pour/Scoop into small pots/containers and leave in fridge to set for 1 hour.
Voila! You're lip plumper is done! The cinnamon & cayenne act as a mild irritant to the lips and plumps them up. It also makes them feel pleasantly tingly!

Alternatively you can replace the cinnamon and cayenne with a few drops of rose oil (or any other essential oil) to make a scented lip scrub. Simply massage onto your lips for a 30sec then clean off with a tissue for smooth, hydrated lips!

Let me know how you get on in the comments section below! 

Thanks for reading and come back soon for another Valentines DIY.
Ta-ta for now!
