Whenever I search Pinterest for homemade skincare inspiration, scrubs especially, I always bump into a DIY kiwi sugar scrub.
The scrub is quite interesting and pretty, so I promised myself I would make it whenever I have kiwis.
Luckily I got a couple of them recently and created the amazing kiwi sugar scrub.
And used it the same day because fruit scrubs have short shelf lives even when stored in the fridge.
You want to use them freshly prepared without any germs or contamination.
That way you can rest assured that you are using a good quality product, and also get the utmost benefits from it.
Additionally, I’ve made it a point of duty to try any DIY skincare product I make before sharing them with you. This way I can give you an honest opinion or review.
I must tell you that I have tried every DIY scrubs and mask published by me on this blog. Except for the few guest posts.
Now let’s dive in.
How To Make A DIY Kiwi Sugar Scrub
To make this all-natural kiwi sugar scrub, you need only two ingredients:
- 1 cup of sugar,
- 1 kiwi fruit blended (use only 2 tablespoons of kiwi or double the quantity of the sugar), and
- a container or glass jar to store your finished product.
- Peel, chop and blend your kiwi into a paste.
- Then scoop out two tablespoons of this fruit puree and mix with the sugar.
- Transfer your DIY kiwi sugar scrub into a container with an air-tight lid.
- Make sure to use this homemade fruit scrub within a day to enjoy the freshness.
How to use your homemade kiwi sugar scrub
This exfoliant like others should be applied to clean skin.
So remember to wash your skin first before exfoliating with any scrub to get the most benefits.
If you feel any discomfort or ting while using it, rinse your skin completely.
And make sure to follow with a light moisturizer.

My experience during the use of the homemade kiwi sugar scrub
This DIY kiwi sugar scrub is not the most pleasant homemade exfoliant I have tried.
After a warm shower, I scooped a generous amount of the scrub and started applying it to my neck and shoulders.
Just within the minute, I felt a ting on my neck, which I ignored and went on to apply this scrub all over my body.
While I was doing that, my inner elbows started to itch and caused me lots of discomforts.
Normally I would wait a few minutes after skin exfoliation before rinsing off the product, but that wasn’t the case with this scrub.
I didn’t hesitate to wash it off my body.
After rinsing, I quickly applied moisturizer to prevent drying.
Anyway, that’s my experience with the homemade kiwi sugar scrub.
Now, this doesn’t mean the scrub is horrible, however, it is possible my skin cannot stand kiwi fruit but my mouth still can. *tongue out*.
You may have a different or similar experience with the scrub. Just know that skin types differ.
On that note, before you use any DIY skincare product, make sure to test a small portion first, and make your judgment.

Will I try this scrub again? I can’t say for sure, but I’d continue to use the ones that my skin loves.
