A few months ago, I received a sample of a coffee body scrub is my Ipsy bag and proceeded to fall in love with it and the way it made my skin feel. When I went online to purchase a full size, I was a a little surprised by the price. I mean, all coffee scrubs are, are a bunch of things you already have at home, mixed together and put into a cute package.
I decided to give it a shot and make my own scrub at home. Worst case scenario is I throw away the one I make and give into purchasing one online. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome and so my Coffee Brown Sugar Body Scrub was born! There are some beauty products that I do not bat an eye at dropping money on, but when something is this simple to make at home with household items, it is not worth the price tag!
- 1 cup ground coffee
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Mix until all ingredients are incorporated into a thick paste.
- Spoon mixture into a small jar or other airtight container.
The scrub is a great exfoliant and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. I personally love the smell of coffee (and all things coffee in general) but if you don’t you can add in essential oils to mask the coffee smell a bit.
And a word of caution – this stuff makes a mess in your shower. Its nothing too terrible, but you will have to spend a few minutes to get all the coffee grounds to go down the drain. Totally worth it though!
