Homemade Coffee Sugar Scrub

15 Minutes

If you love making DIY sugar scrubs, then you need to add this Coffee Sugar Scrub to your list to make! Not only does it leave your skin hydrated and smooth, but it also leaves it smelling like vanilla and coffee. So, if you are a coffee fan, you know this scrub will smell amazing!

Ingredients needed

  • Fresh ground coffee
  • White granulated sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Pure vanilla extract

Normally homemade coffee scrub will last up anywhere from two to three months as long as it's stored properly.

Also, when using sugar scrubs, your shower or tub may be a little slippery so use caution when using it.

If you've never used a coffee scrub on your skin before, make sure to test it on a small area as it may be too harsh for your skin.

You can use either used coffee grounds or fresh. I have never used used grounds before so I can't attest to how they work. However, if you have, leave a comment so we know how that works.

Coffee scrub, like any sugar scrub, shouldn't be used every day. A few times a week is enough. Plus, coffee grounds can stick to the coconut oil and cause a blockage in your pipes. We go into detail in our post about that.

    does it make a difference if the coffee is caffeinated or not?

    • To get the effects from the caffeine, I would suggest using caffeinated. That's all I've used when making it. From what I've found online, since caffeine makes our blood vessels tighten, it's what helps our skin look tighter/brighter.

      However, maybe someone else has tried it before with decaffeinated and can leave their experience.
