A few years ago I saw a tub of sugar scrub on clearance (just saying that word makes me giddy) marked down from $39 to $5 and I snatched it up before anyone else could. I had never used sugar scrub - but at that price - I was willing to see what the hooplah was about.
I fell in love. My fav thing to do is scrub it on my legs and rinse off before I shave them. It's a total luxury item. I was so sad when I was I ran out that I went to Target and found a different sugar scrub for $17. Although I usually wouldn't spend that much on a 'luxury item' I was so addicted to that darn scrub that I bought it.
That tub ran out a few months ago. This morning I was noticing how dry my hands are and I started thinking about that lovely stuff. Then I thought to myself... I bet I could MAKE IT MYSELF! And that's what I did. And you can too...
I googled a few sugar scrub companies and read their ingredients online and went from there. I'm not sayin this is the greatest recipe for sugar scrub - but it's a good, cheap one that certainly does the trick!
Add sugars together and combine well. Add EVOO a bit at a time. Add a big dollup to the sugars and use a spoon to incorporate it. Keep it up until you get the consistency you want. Add the vanilla last - just based on your preference (you can add any fragrance you want). I added a little more EVOO than I will next time - but that was planned. You see - my skin is so dry that I wanted that extra EVOO to help repair my skin and get it back in shape!!
Now go - get off the computer - grab those ingredients out of your pantry and soon you'll be living in the lap of luxury!!
