Ever use sugar scrub? I feel like it’s something a lot of women don’t acknowledge or know too much about, but it’s great stuff! It’s a perfect product for exfoliating, smells amazing, and leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth. Sugar scrub is a great choice if your have sensitive skin, and wonderful to use for dry skin, as the sugar and oil combined really hydrates. However, sugar scrub isn’t the cheapest product in the world.
Sephora offers this fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish for $65.00 and Ulta offers their Whish Sugar Scrub for $38.00. This DIY Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub will cost you a grand total of $11.99. But, the best part about making sugar scrub is you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen already! To make basic, non-scented sugar scrub, all you need is two ingredients: sugar (you guessed it) and any kind of oil.
This particular sugar scrubs contains three ingredients:
• 1/2 C White Sugar– Purchased for $2.42
• 1/4 C Coconut Oil– Purchased for $6.98
• 1 package (48 oz) Instant pink lemonade powder-Purchased for $2.59
I purchased all three ingredients at Walmart.
Take the sugar and lemonade mix and combine in a small bowl. If the coconut oil is still in solid form, measure out 1/4 C and melt it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds until it melts, then just stir everything together! It should look a little like this….
The coconut oil makes your skin feel so so smooth. You won’t be able to get over it! The pink lemonade leaves it smelling delicious, and a super cute color, too!
It’s unbelievable how many recipes you can make, too. Other optional add-ins include Vitamin E oil, honey, essential oils, vanilla, or spices. Play around with different recipes and find one that works for you!
This makes for a great present for others, and this one in particular is perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up! Decorate the jar however you like for whatever occasion! Whoever you give it to will think you’re super crafty and will appreciate it much more than a store-bought sugar scrub…and the best part is you saved money!
