DIY Lip Scrub

If you've got dry/chapped lips and need a quick fix, look no further!
Here's a quick and easy way of making your own lip scrub with products that can be found in your very own kitchen cupboards. 

What you will need:

Sugar: will act as the exfoliant to rub away all the dead skin
Olive Oil: will moisturise the lips 
Plate: to put the ingrediance on
Spoon: to mix the ingrediance

There is no "scientific" measurements to make the lip scrub; it all depends on how much you want to make. Usually I add a drop of olive oil and 2 teaspoons of sugar (surprisingly, this lasts a while) 

Mix both ingreidance with a spoon until it looks something like this:

And your done!
You can leave your lipscrub on the plate and store it in the fridge.

Hope this is helpful, leave comments with any requests!

Review: Frizz Ease: "Strengthening Creme Masque"

Like a lot of people my hair is pretty damaged from straightening, curling, blow-drying....etc.
Also like a lot of people I'm not quite brave enough yet to ditch the straighteners and go au natural to give my hair some TLC, so I opted for this product instead.  

It is a "rich anti-breakage nourishing creme for damaged hair caused by excess heat styling"
The result: "Strong, silky hair that shines"
This stuff is probably only slightly thicker than your average conditoner but it feels like its really working when its applied.

I had it on for about 30 minutes with a shower cap on (very trendy indeed) and could feel it kinda tingling my scalp which feels really nice.It also smells amazing, really "clean" smelling if that makes any sense, haha! 

I did notice a differance in terms of how soft and shiny my hair felt, which is what it claims. However, I didn't notice much differance in terms of actually "repairing" my damaged hair, it felt as though it "coated" my hair more than anything else. It does say use twice a week for best results, so I'll have to give that a try. 

Overall I'd say it was pretty average. I've used worse but used better, too. If you want your hair to be more silky, definitely go for it. But in terms of repairing damaged hair, go for something else.
I'm still on the hunt for my holy grail product!
