@everythingahnika I used to make sugar scrubs often but they were so harsh because the sugar was too rough. Enter this little blender trick and it’s a total game changer! This silky smooth scrub is awesome at gently exfoliating and moisturizing (again, wouldn’t use on the face) and is now a shower essential for me 👀. Let me know if you make it and what you think! #easydiy #diyproject #diybodyscrub #selfcare #selfcaretiktok #giftideas #diy #homemade #fyp ♬ Steven Universe - L.Dre
