DIY Brown Sugar and Olive Scrub

I recently ran out of my MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator and wanted to try a DIY recipe instead of purchasing something new.  I try the baking soda scrub once.  It caused some irritation, so I never used that recipe again.  I heard about sugar being a great exfoliate and decided to give it a try.


Heres what I did:


  • I simply mixed 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • After I applied the mixture to my face, I gently rubbed the scrub throughout my face.
  • After I rinsed off the scrub, I used a warm cloth to get rid of the excess oil.

Let me tell you, my face has NEVER felt so soft.  Its crazy all the money Ive spent over the years on  exfoliators, from Bobbi Brown , when I had an even better product in my cabinet.  Trail and error, I suppose.


Ill keep this up twice a week and see how it goes.  Remember, its important to exfoliate at least once or twice a week to remove the dead skin off the surface, especially since the days are getting the cooler.


Let me know if youve tried this scrub recipe before.  If you haven’t, try out and tell me what you think.
