Smooth & Flawless Lips - Perfectly Plump Day To Evening

You speak volumes every day. This can leave your lips chapped and tired, leaving them prone to nervous habits like picking at the dry skin or rubbing your lips. Making sure that your lips are well taken care of is a key step in every day essential up-keep.

These are packed full of lick-your lips delicious ingredients that smell good and taste amazing.

Here are two homemade DIY recipes that will leave your lips silky smooth and ready to talk all day, getting the job done, and even happy to share a soft kiss or two with your cute hubby in the evening.

Good for: All skin types. Tired cracked lips and well-maintained lips too!

Why is this so good for your lips:

  • The Sugar works as a gentle exfoliant to gently remove all of the dead skin cells from your lips, leaving behind soft silky supple skin.
  • Lemon has antioxidant properties and is thus beneficial for your skin. Besides being a delicious fruit and one of our favorite smoothie ingredients, it is full of vitamin C revitalizing for you – inside and out.
  • Vitamin E oil is a nutrient and antioxidant. It works as a moisturizer, has anti-aging benefits and is a well-known ‘universal cleaner’ for the skin
  • Lavender essential oil is calming, balancing and stress reducing. It has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that make it a great skin healer.


  • Step 1: Lemon Lip Scrub

    Get your lips soft and kissable. Using a homemade lip scrub is the perfect way to exfoliate your lips and keep them hydrated. It also helps to keep your lipstick on and even.

    We are Olivia & Morgan

    So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

    Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

    Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

    So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

    We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

    This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

    Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
