I’ve been to numerous high end salons that feature Brown Sugar Scrubs, Mud, and even Chocolate. The treatments are amazing. Leaving your skin feeling soft, moisturized, and healthy. The problem is, they charge you so much money for one of those treatments. A Brown Sugar Facial can run anywhere from $90- $150. A Chocolate Facial and Body Wrap can go from $100 – $250. When you get into the ingredients of the scrubs and wraps, it’s nothing more than things you can get at your local grocery store.
Speaking of which, have you seen the prices of Brown Sugar Scrubs in stores. A POCKETBOOK OUCH!
So over the past year I’ve been making my very own homemade face and body scrubs. Getting all the same wonderful benefits at a fraction of the cost.
If you’ve ever had a facial scrub before, then you know that they’re simply amazing. After just one application, you can have fresher, healthier looking skin because of the way sugar scrubs exfoliate those dead skin cells.
