This heavenly-smelling cotton blossom homemade sugar scrub leaves your skin baby soft, and costs a fraction of the price of store-bought beauty products!
Cotton Blossom Homemade Sugar Scrub
Like many of you, I’m a huge fan of Bath & Body Works (I used to work there in college!) I especially love their Cotton Blossom fragrance. It’s one of their classic scents and one of my all-time favorites, even before I ever worked there.
However, as a mom with a growing family, I like to save money wherever possible. That’s why I’ve started dabbling in creating my own homemade bath and beauty products.
The other reason I love homemade skin care is because I know exactly what goes into the products I make — no harsh chemicals with crazy names I can’t even pronounce!
After my last pregnancy, my skin became super sensitive, so I’m extra careful about what I use on it.
This cotton blossom DIY sugar scrub is made with only 4 simple ingredients, so not only is it easy to make, but there are no surprises about what’s inside.
Make a batch for yourself, or as a gift for your mom, grandma, or girlfriends! It smells amazing, keeps for weeks, and it works!
