After sharing this tried and true skincare DIY, I was intrigued to try more beauty DIYs and discovered this easy DIY sugar lip scrub. And it’s pineapple infused. Any pineapple fans out there? I know I am one! Ready to dive into this super-simple recipe? There are only 4 ingredients!
I love a good matte, longwear lipstick, but those are notoriously dry so I am always on the hunt for a good lip scrub and moisturizer to keep them ready for the next matte lipstick I want to wear. If you want to see what I use to keep my lips moisturized, let me know! I’ll be happy to do a post featuring my favorite lip balms and masks!
DIY Sugar Lip Scrub, Pineapple Flavor
As I said, there aren’t many ingredients in this scrub, 4 total. And if you don’t want to have fresh pineapple in your scrub you can opt for the pineapple flavoring.
| INGREDIENT LIST |
6 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 Tablespoons pineapple purée
or 1/2 teaspoon pineapple flavoring
2 drops Vitamin E oil
DIRECTIONS | First step is to purée enough fresh pineapple to yield 2 tablespoons worth. Set it aside for now and grab another small mixing bowl. Add the sugar and coconut oil, stir well. Add in the pineapple purée — or pineapple flavoring — and 2 drops of Vitamin E oil and stir until well incorporated. Store in an airtight container and keep in a refrigerator for up to 7 days if you used fresh pineapple purée. If you used the pineapple extract/flavoring instead of the purée it will keep for up to 3 month.
This will make enough DIY sugar lip scrub to fill roughly two small lip balm containers. How to use this is pretty straight forward, but I thought I would share how I like to use my lip scrubs. After I’ve brushed my teeth for the night — while my lips are still wet — I’ll generously apply the DIY sugar lip scrub and gently massage it onto my lips in small circular motions to allow the sugar granules to exfoliate any dry or dead skin and the coconut oil to moisturize. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel and finish off with your favorite lip balm.
And there you have it! Pretty simple and straight forward, right? Just like a DIY sugar lip scrub should be! If you’re not a DIY type of person, I’ve got you covered — this $3 one will last you months!

I do love pineapple!
I want to make this! I feel like the pineapple would be extra good in a scrub because it’s so acidic and it would probably help with the sloughing off of dead skin. Need to try!
I love making scrubs!!! The pineapple sounds amazing and I will have to try this recipe next time! <3
Who DOESN’T love pineapple?!?!?
I’ve never made anything like this but it seems easy and perfect. Thanks for the recipe.
Pineapple – yum! Thank you for this! I was quite sick of all the coffee/sugar/chocolate scrubs. I mean, is there no other flavour! I love pineapple. Will make this!

This sounds LOVELY! I also love the pineapple tablecloth 🙂
I must say – in my opinion, you are the queen of creating perfectly pin-able images!! <3

This sounds like a fun DIY, how about mango flavor!
Maybe I’ll try this one! I’ve tried making DIY lip scrubs in the past but they always came out goopy and weird. I did buy some coconut oil for some DIY projects, guess it’s time to get started!
I love pineapple, and the price is great! Thank you for the recipe!
I’m going to make this next time I’m babysitting. They will have fun making this.
Made this and I honestly love it! Goes on great & has an amazing taste

Oh yay, thank you so much for letting me know! I love hearing how these DIY recipes work for you! <3
Can you make it with other types of oils because I am allergic to coconuts?
Katie Marie says
I would think so — just use something with a similar consistency. One that hardens like coconut oil does — so maybe try palm oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter.
Katie Are you saying substitute the coconut oil with one of the three suggestions or all 3 together for a substitution?
Katie Marie says
I’m not sure what you mean, sorry?
