Who does not want soft and beautiful lips? Lets be honest...we all do! But unfortunately, not all of us can find the stores that sell them in the countries we live in. LUSH; which is an amazing store for beauty products, provides all kinds of organic and beautiful beauty products. One of the most amazing products it has are its lip scrubs :
In this post we will provide you a recipe to make at home to create your own edible tinted lip scrub!
What you need :
A dry clean and empty lip balm jar
A small bowl
1 tablespoon of Honey
1 1/4 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
5 drops of red organic food (vegetable) coloring
1 - In a small bowl, mix the honey and coconut oil together until it is a homogeneous mixture
2 - Add the drops of color and the brown sugar and mix until smooth and the color is evenly dispersed.
3 - Now your mixture is done!
4 - Put the mixture in the lip balm jar.
Pamper your lips with this lip scrub whenever you feel your like your lips need it. It is preferred to store your lip scrub in a dry cool place.
Coconut Oil and honey are known for their moisturizing properties, they will leave ur lips soft and moisturized. The brown sugar will act as a gentle scrub to magically scrub away the dead skin, leaving your lips as good as new!

This one is my number one shower gel. It is definitely my favorite; the smell is incredibly delicious! It takes you back to those cozy winter days of your childhood where the smell of the hot vanilla cupcakes your mom just put in the oven is filling your home with warmth and love. The scent of this shower gel is beyond words. You need to smell it yourself in order to understand how good it is! Warning! Do not try to eat this !

With this shower gel you will be taken to the land of creamy dunes of raspberry cakes and pies! It smells absolutely delicious and it just makes you want to drink it right out of the bottle! ( But please DO NOT do that! ).

Ever wonder how you can get silky smooth flawless skin without breaking out? Well, here is a list of this week's picks of beauty products that will hopefully give you just what you are looking for :
1 - Benefit's Porefessional Face Balm (Primer)
This product is like magic. It gives your face a velvety smooth finish and leaves it almost 100% poreless. It can be used as a base for your foundation or can be worn on it own when you are in a hurry! .
2- Rimmel London Matte BB Cream
This product is my number one everyday go to face moisturizer/foundation. For me it does personally act as a foundation, I honestly do not need to add any more heavy products. It does not break you out or give your skin an oily look ( Nobody wants that!).
3 - The Faceshop Clean Face Acne Solution Foam Cleanser
This face wash is the best face wash I have ever used for any breakouts. Beats all the face washes I have ever used.. It contains natural ingredients such as green tea extract. Wash your face with this twice a day; In the morning and before going to sleep. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way.
4 - Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Moisture Lotion
I have always disliked face moisturizers due to their heavy weight consistency which always leads to clogging my pores and eventually causing breakouts. However; when I found this moisturizer when I was living in the United Kingdom, I fell in love! This moisturizer is light, it does not clog my pores, it leaves my pores tight and fresh and absolutely moisturizes my face,

Ella wakes up in the morning, takes a look at the mirror and.......AAAAAGH!! Yes, she has a morning hair disaster! Well you see, Ella has thick wavy/curly hair that she finds so unmanageable that she sometimes wishes that she doesn't have to go to work in the morning! So here are some hair care tips for Ella so she can get rid of her dilemma :
1- Invest in a good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Sulfate free hair products are gentle on the hair and do not it strip the moisture away from it. It does not lather as much as other commercial shampoos but it does cleanse just as much.
2- Hair serums! We love hair serums! After showering and towel drying your hair, pump a few drops of hair serum into your palms and spread it evenly on your hair. This will give your hair shine and will get rid of most your hair's frizzes. You can also put hair serum in your hair after it is styled and all dry.
3- After showering, brush your hair and then leave it to air dry. Air drying your hair will lock in more moisture into your locks.
4- Try to avoid sleeping with wet hair. If necessary, dry it with cool hair using a hair dryer then braid it. In the morning your hair will have uniform mermaid like beach waves.
5- Invest in a good leave in conditioner. A leave in conditioner will keep your hair moist, shiny and manageable.
6 - Coconut oil! Before taking a shower, evenly spread a strawberry sized dollop of coconut oil on the ends of your hair and let it sit for 15 minutes. This will nourish your ends and keep them shiny and in place.
Follow these tips and be happy with your healthy shiny beautiful wavy locks!
