Chocolate Lip Scrub

If you’re following me on Instagram then you have already seen this lip dessert in my stories and if not, then it won’t take long until you do.
The recipe is pretty simple, the making process takes about 20 minutes but you’ll be blown away by how gorgeous this product looks like and how perfect it is for chapped and dry lips.
