Ever fancy making your own skincare? Here’s a super easy place to start, with our recipe for funfetti cake scrub.  Use it on your hands, feet and body for a moisturising and delicious treat.

You will need:

  • Caster sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Confetti cake sprinkles

First of all, take a glass jar with an airtight lid, and fill it 3/4 full with caster sugar. Tip out the sugar into a large heat-proof bowl.

Then, spoon coconut oil into the same jar until it’s 1/4 full. In this country, coconut oil is almost always solid at room temperature. Pop the glass jar into the microwave and heat gently in 10 second bursts until the coconut oil is melted, stirring between each time.

Pour the melted coconut oil into the bowl of sugar and stir to combine. The mixture should look a bit like wet sand. Then, add sunflower oil until you reach your desired texture – the more oil you add, the wetter and more moisturising the scrub will be. The drier the scrub is, the easier it is to remove from the jar. Start with one teaspoon, then add a teaspoon at a time, testing the texture of the scrub with your fingers as you go.

Add a dash of vanilla extract and stir again. Then add as many confetti sprinkles as you like (we recommend 1tsp – 1tbsp), mix them all in, and pour your scrub into your glass jar! Keep in a cool, dry place and use within 3 months.

Please note: using this scrub can make your bath or shower slippy. Please be careful.
