Best if used within 30 days of purchasing. Be sure to mix everything together before use; the honey and sugar will naturally separate. Take a small amount and rub it on your lips to exfoliate them and remove the dead skin cells. You are in charge of the exfoliation process…so rub a little, rub a lot, rub hard, or barely at all… it’s up to you! You can wipe or rinse with water, or even lick it off. DON’T WORRY!! It’s ok to take a taste; this product is ALL natural! The only side effect is that you may become addicted!
