Finding a ‘good’ body scrub has definitely been challenging for me. Some of them are quite pointless and the rest of them are OKAY but expensive. There’s never really been a body scrub that’s fit my budget and my expectations. I haven’t really had my skin feeling touchably soft and properly exfoliated until I tried this DIY. I didn’t go into it thinking I’d love it this much but I was so pleasantly surprised!
I recently purchased a body scrub from a brand known to specialise in bath products for more than Rs. 1,000. Spending this much on a scrub that I will use up to 3 times a week is an absolute splurge!
I found an old bottle of walnut shell powder lying around from a previous DIY and decided to use it to whip up a quick n’ easy body scrub. DIY-ing on a weekend is probably one of my FAVOURITE things to do especially when it takes 5 minutes!
This DIY face, body and lip scrub is going to leave you mind blown too, I promise. And it won’t cost you more than 200 rupees!
1. Walnut shell powder has a coarse texture that works wonders for exfoliation! The ETHERIC Walnut Shell Powder (Rs 160) is your perfect budget buy.
2. A body wash or a shower gel is something all of us have lying at home, if you’re looking for an affordable one check out this Fiama Shower Gel, Peach and Avocado (Rs 55)
Take about half a cup of body wash in a bowl, add 1-2 tbsp of walnut shell powder and mix it up. Go have a shower and use the scrub like you normally would. It’s going to leave you touching yourself – in a good way! Be prepared for super soft, smooth skin. If you’re feeling fancy you can add a few drops of essential oils like rose, lavender, tea tree and peppermint.
After using my DIY scrub, my skin felt like it had a new life. I also asked my husband (my guinea pig for all my DIY’s) to try it and he loved it too! You can even mix it with a little bit of vaseline to make your a DIY lip scrub!
You’re welcome ladies AND gentlemen! Have a good scrub, oops I meant day.
