How To Use Foaming Sugar Scrub

Because this is a foaming exfoliant, there are two ways you can use it.

  1. Use it to exfoliate your whole body after a shower. Then rinse off, and moisturize your skin.
  2. Use it straight with exfoliating gloves for a refreshing shower. Don’t forget to moisturize after.

What to look out for in the runny foaming sugar coffee scrub

  • This scrub does not contain an emulsifier, so expect it to settle or separate when it is stored.
  • But you can give it a little shake before using it again.
  • Also, the sugar would melt into the body wash after some time.
  • I think it makes the body wash richer in texture, and I like it.
  • Lastly, if there’s less sugar than body wash, feel free to add more sugar.
