DIY: Lush Bubblegum Sugar Lip Scrub

I am relatively new to the world of Lush and I kept hearing bloggers raving about the sugar lip scrubs. However, when I finally got around to checking them out, I was hilariously surprised to discover the cost. Yes, all natural is great, but $10 for a tiny pot of flavored sugar? Unfortunately I just can't rationalize that one, so I decided to make my own.
There are a ton of recipes out there for Lush lip scrubs, but essentially you just need some sort of oil, sugar, and flavor. It was bubble gum or nothing for me, so I found some at Hobby Lobby and used Vitamin E oil because it has no flavor and doesn't leave your lips greasy.
Here is the recipe I made. I didn't have any red food coloring, so it's a lighter pink than the Lush product, but that's ok with me.

2 Tbs Sugar
1 tsp Vit. E oil
3 drops bubble gum flavor
(food coloring)

I had a teeny tiny glass jam pot from a hotel somewhere, which worked perfectly as an airtight container.
