The Best Mojito Sugar Scrub by A Blissful Nest

Sugar scrubs can be expensive to buy in the stores and I was partial to one I had found back home in California but could not find online or here in Texas. So I started researching how to make my own and could not believe how simple it is! One of the main reasons I love sugar scrubs is that they are moisturizing and exfoliating for the skin. Especially in the humid heat here in Texas I need something like this to help my skin. You can use these scrubs on your face, feet and and your body. I decided to add a twist to the classic recipe and make it a mojito sugar scrub after one of my favorite summer time drinks. It definitely smells just as good if not better than the real thing!

    1. I literally keep it in this glass bowl with a lid next to my sink in the bathroom. I mix it up before I use it every night. I have not had any troubles with the heat here but it is key to use fractionated oil. It stays as liquid.

  1. This is something I would love to try. How long should you keep it on your skin or do you just stub for a minute or two? Is it good for oily skin? Dry skin?

    1. I actually have oily skin and use it every night. I first wash my face with a face soap and then I put a dollop of ths on my hands and rub onto my face. Really it is just for a minute or two. Then I splash water on my face to rinse off. Your skin will feel amazing afterwards!
