How to make your own body scrub..

Hi everyone, Here is my quick, easy and cheap way of making your own body scrub.
My favourite type of body exfoliator is a sugar scrub because the grains are smaller I find it so much easier to use and for me rock salt scrubs just fall off the skin and just leave a big ol mess! Does that happen to you?
So I stopped in Tesco after work and found this cute glass jar for £1.25! and the sugar was 99p
I already had oil..Now it's up to you what oil you use..I actually used baby oil as I had a whole bottle and never use it. Other options are olive oil, grape seed oil (good for tightening the skin) or almond oil (good for healing scars) Mix the two together with a spoon..ET voila!
This is also a good idea as a gift if you put a little ribbon or pretty material around the top!
So this was made for under £5! I'm super pleased with my home made mixture I can't wait to have a bath and scrub away! :)


  1. Hey sweetie! So you have to go over to my blog ASAP. I have something for you! (this sounds like an ad or spam when i say it like this..but I chose you for an award!) xoxo

  2. OMG Thankyou so much!!! Thats my first award..thats made my day :) xxx

  4. nah, I had to ask Irene how to do this too! Just save the pic like you do any pic on your desktop, and then insert it like an image or pic in a blog post like you normally do. Let me know if you still have probs!
