Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub /* ]]> */
Dec 282014

This Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub is a yummy-smelling, DIY beauty product that is so simple & quick to whip together. If you like to make your own beauty products, then you have to try this scrub. You only need a few ingredients (that you probably already have in your pantry) and a small mixing bowl. Then you have a luscious creamy exfoliating body scrub that is sure to tantalize your senses the next time you’re in the bath or shower or wherever!

I’ve made a homemade sugar scrub before- namely, this Vanilla Lavender Sugar Scrub. And I keep it near my bathroom sink and I use it to exfoliate my hands every night. It’s such a decadent way to prep my hands for a nice, emollient hand lotion.

This recipe today for Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub is based on the previous version. But this one has a twist!
