This works just as well as fresh's super expensive sugar scrub and you can do it with ingredients you already have on hand! I use different oils every time but it's the easiest DIY thing especially because it's so expensive to buy pre-mixed in stores.

Table sugar, olive oil, lemon juice and you have a wonderfully hydrating body scrub. Use once a week, especially in winter months and don't bother with store bought scrubs again. Also great to package up and give as gifts.

(Sorry for my bad english) Well, I'm not so much into the homemade products, but this recipe is my mom's favorite, so I gave it a try. And how lucky I am! This is fair better than most of brands' scrubs (and the cheapest one!). Just a cup of sugar, the juice of two limes and enough olive oil to hydrate the mix (and sometimes I add a bit of scented oil just for the spa like …Read more

For the life of me I can't figure out why women pay lots of money for the prepared ones at the store? This is my Sunday ritual...
I pour about 1/2 cup of white sugar and 3 tbs of oil into a tupperware bowl and bring it into the shower. I 'clarify' my hair with Vo5 Kiwi Lime Shampoo ($1) and deep condition with L'Oreal's Nature Therapy Mega Moistuire (the tub from …

Now because I JUST, literally JUST used this scrub (for the very first time), I can't speak for long term consequences/results, though I can comment on the immediate:

I am sitting at home, Friday night, kid is asleep, husband working overnight, totally bored, reading about how to get rid of a bugger little ingrown hair I can't seem to shake. I run across an article stressing …

WOW, I learned about this scrub through this website, and started using it about 3 times a week. Before I had started using this, I bad major blackheads in the crease of my chin and on my nose. I tried everything to get rid of them, and nothing worked. Suddenly, they ALL disappeared after I started to use this. I mix brown sugar, olive oil and lemon juice and scrub right before bed so my face …Read more

I got this recipe from my French & Italian ancesters. Olive oil is a great moisturizer plus it has antioxidants. Sugar is an excellant ex-foliator plus it's not as drying or irritating as using salt.
Mix a cup of sugar with enough olive oil to moisten it. Sometimes I add a little grape seed oil as well for an antioxidant boost.
Use while bathing or showering. Take a small …

When i'm in the mood for a home-spa i make my own scrub, of sugar and oil. The skin is incredibly soft and moisturized after! The only downside is that it's an awfull job cleaning out the shower afterwards. I mix 2 dl sugar with 1 dl oil in my old Redken hair mask jar, but on the lid, and shake. Ready. If you mix in some vanilla tea, or whatever, it gets the most delicious scent. Try it

The Brown Sugar scrub, a favorite since my teens. I do not like to use Olive oil though I find it too heavy. I'd rather no oil at all or jojoba oil, but that is too expensive, so I use Coconut oil, but only when using it on my body. When using brown sugar I like to use it straight on my face, when I can't use the aspirin mask (DO not overdo it with the asprin mask friends. You will be …Read more

I use Lipton Green Tea Iced Tea mix for the sugar, then some of any kind of oil I have, maybe a little shower gel added 'til it reaches a scrubbable consistency. It works wonderfully, so soft. Why do prepared body scrubs cost a million dollars? Don't waste your money and feel like Cleopatra anyway.
