Pineapple Solid Sugar Scrub DIY



I might be a little addicted to all things pineapple. It's practically a requirement of summer. I happen to be a little addicted to all things beauty DIY as well. I decided to marry the two in a fun diy that takes moments to make. If you like the result of a sugar scrub but not the mess, give these a try. I use these on my feet and body--my skin is instantly soft and lightly moisturized. PLUS did I mention they are cute as all get out?


You'll need--
  • 1 part soap base 
  • 2 parts carrier oil
  • 2 parts sugar
  • essential oils/body-safe scented oil
  • yellow soap colorant
  • glass bowl
  • spoon
  • pot holders
  • pineapple mold--I used a pineapple ice cube tray from Amazon
Real life, y'all, is sometimes messy.

You'll do--
  • Heat the soap base in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. A double-boiler is the best method, but I was in a hurry. Carefully remove using the pot holders.
  • Mix in the sugar, oil, and scent.
  • Spoon into mold.
  • Allow to cool 30 minutes.
  • Pop out of mold. 

You'll use--
  • Take one pineapple and use with water to gently exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize skin. 
  • These last 6 months.

FYI--
  • I like using these on my feet in the summer. I also use them on my body before shaving. I do not recommend using them on the face. You can get many uses from one pineapple.
  • I added a little less sugar to make sure the pineapple design popped in the pics, but that's the best part of this DIY--you can change the proportions. Sometimes, like in the colder months, I'll add more oil or change the oil I used. Here I used Argan, but sometimes it's coconut. It depends on my need. You can change the sugar type as well.
  • These make ADORABLE gifts.
  • These are perfect for travel, too.
Would you make these?
Have you ever tried a solid sugar scrub?

Extra Elle:
  • My weekend was too fast! The air quality was bad in Atlanta, so I tried to stay in as much as possible. I did go to Trader Vic's to celebrate a friend's birthday early.

  22. These are ridiculously cute! Oh my goodness... I may need to make them. I never thought of putting a scrub in a solid form (let alone a super adorable one... ) but it's a great idea. It's like portion sizes for scrubs. :) XO - Alexandra

  27. These are so adorable! I like the idea of a solid scrub way more than the messy ones I've been using.

  28. I've never used a solid scrub, but it's intriguing. Especially when it's this cute! I think I need a pineapple ice cube tray for these, ice cubes, and anything else I can think of. Ha! Semi-related note: I have a sold lotion bar and it's super weird to me. I haven't used it yet...but I'm like, how am I supposed to store it once I've started using it???
