I have a few beauty products I don't like to do without. Noxzema for my face. Enjoy products for my hair. Sebastian Signs Dream Spray for my bed. Oatmeal lotion and Sugar Scrub for my skin.
When I ran out of Sugar Scrub last week I weighed my options. Take 2 small kids out to get it or try a DIY recipe for Sugar Scrub... I am a DIY kind of lady sometimes and the recipe I found sounded easy. The recipe called for:
1 cup of coconut oil
2 cups of white granulated sugar
Mix the oil and sugar well and store in a container with an airtight lid.
I had both ingredients on hand so I got started right away. I could hardly wait to try this. I decided a warm bath was in order so I could put my handiwork to the test.
First off, this was just greasy. The coconut oil and my skin were not a good match. While the sugar did help to polish my skin, it was unnecessary after the oil came in contact with my skin. Within moments it became obvious the bath wasn't working out thanks to the DIY Sugar Scrub, a shower was in order. However using this stuff made such an oily greasy mess it became hard to stand in the shower without slipping and sliding.
This was a horrible recipe for a DIY Sugar Scrub. It was actually a dangerous recipe as it could result in someone falling in the shower. I would not recommend trying this at home. It would be a better idea to spend the $5 and buy a product that works without any element of danger.
