Homemade, Watermelon Body Polish

Things You'll Need

1 Cup white sugar
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Cup watermelon cubes
Air tight container

  • Put approximately 1 cup of watermelon in blender.  Blend until smooth.
  • Mix sugar into watermelon pulp until thoroughly mixed. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Store in refrigerator in an air tight container for up to a week.
  • Every time you shower, take a big yummy scoop and rub on to skin. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.

Watermelon Body Polish ~ Yum!!

Simple Sugared Grapefruit Lip Scrub
  • Combine 6 drops of fresh grapefruit juice with 1 tbsp. white sugar. Blend well.
  • Apply the grapefruit lip scrub to your lips and leave it for about 5 minutes.
  • Massage the grapefruit lip scrub gently into your lips, and rinse it off with warm water.
  • Allow your lips to dry, and apply moisturizer or lip balm.

Peppermint & Honey Lip Scrub


1 drop peppermint oil

  • Mix together one quarter cup sugar, peppermint oil, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add a little water, enough to make a paste.
  • Hold a warm, wet washcloth over lips for a few minutes, to soften dead skin. Rub a small amount of the scrub over lips using gentle, circular motions. Rub for about a minute, but not long enough to irritate.
  • Rinse off the scrub with the warm, wet washcloth.
  • Follow with your favorite chap stick.

Note*  Only use once-twice per week.  Over exfoliating can cause damage to sensitive skin cells ;)

One item that's been on my "wish list" for a while is Too Faced's Sweet Dreams Palette. Firstly because of the products inside, secondly because of the fabulous packaging.

I came across 2 very similar luxe effect nail polishes this week.
 Essie, Pearl Perfection & Sinful Colors, Pearl Harbour.

It looks like this could be a nice dupe with a price difference of $6.00

Q. What is a Luxe Effect?
A. These are textured top coats, designed to be worn over any nail color to bring extra shimmer, glimmer and dazzle!

Essie Luxe Effect "Pearl Perfection"

 Take a closer look at both of them for yourself, next time you're shopping for your fingers  ;)
