Winter White Sugar Scrub

You guys, this has been the worst.winter.ever for my skin! My poor fingers are cracked and dry from the frigid temps and they are in desperate need of some TLC. Sugar scrub (and vaseline) is my go-to remedy for my dry skin so I decided to whip up a new batch of sugar scrub.  After I grabbed my basic ingredients and mixed it all up, I love how white and bright it looked so that’s why I’m calling it Winter White.

Sugar Scrub

I picked up a package of 4 ounce mason jars at Target and one batch of the winter white sugar scrub will fill up 2 jars. This is the perfect little gift to keep on hand for those “just because” moments. I broke out my PSA Essentials stamps and added an adorable little snowflake tag. I love how this little tag just completes the project.

And of course since today is Freebie Friday, I had to include the labels! This time around I just printed them out on card stock, traced the lid on the labels, cut them out and popped it right on top of the lid.

The Recipe:

1.5 C of white granulated sugar

1/4 C of baby oil

{thanks Kelly from Smart School House for the baby oil tip!}

1 tbsp of vaseline

1 tbsp of hand soap

Just mix it all together and spoon it into your jar. The amount of each ingredient can be tweaked to your liking. I used baby oil but you can probably use any oil that you have on hand. There really is a ton of different ways to make sugar scrub so you can play around with it. I rounded up 15 different sugar scrub recipes awhile back so feel free to take a look at them HERE.
