Homemade Hand Scrub

Homemade Hand Scrub

My husband has very dry skin and we are constantly trying new things to help this problem. One of the things he found to work was the hand scrub by Beauticontrol. However, our budget cannot afford this as a frequent purchase.  I came across a few posts on Pinterest about making your own scrubs at home and decided to give it a try. I could not be happier with the results.  The best part of all is it is so simple to make and requires only 2 things.

Turn this into a nice DIY gift by dressing up a container with some ribbon and a card explaining how to use it.

  • In the container of your choice, fill up 3/4 of the way sugar.
  • Fill the rest of the container with Dawn with Olay Hand Renewal (the pink one)
  • Stir slowly to combine the Dawn with the sugar. Make sure that is it mixed completely.
  • Put lid on container and dress up jar. Make sure to include a tag telling the receiver it is a Hand Scrub.

Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (14). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.

    I need to try this one! My husband and 3 older kids have the driest skin. We are also looking for things that will help their hands.

    This is just what I am looking for! Doing a spa party for my daughter’s (soon to be 8) birthday next week and looking for some homemade stuff that I can send home with them for favors.

    I’m going to try this, I love scrubs but have never made my own. My hands get so dry and flaky from always being in water and cleaning!
