Yes, you read that right. Coffee + Brown Sugar + Olive Oil = an amazing body scrub that my mom and I are both totally obsessed with.
I really do start an absurd amount of my conversations with that very sentence. Ever since I got a Pinterest account, I’m catching myself falling into the well-known Pinterest rut: repinning cool ideas, but never actually doing anything with them beyond that.
This Coffee Brown Sugar Body Scrub was one of the few things that I’ve seen, repinned, and then actually made. And it was so worth the energy it took to get up from my computer and walk out to the kitchen 😉
But seriously, it’s awesome. I love the yummy coffee smell of course, and my skin feels absolutely incredible afterwards. It’s so easy too.
Mix the coffee and brown sugar…
and then add olive oil until desired consistency is achieved (I added olive oil until sort of moist, but definitely not watery yet).
And that’s it! I use it every 3 or 4 days, though I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t use it every day. I put the scrub into a canning jar for the pictures, but I actually have it in a small plastic container normally, because I felt like a glass jar in the shower might not be such a great idea.
