I used JOHNSON’S® to make this Instant Summer Sugar Scrub as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #johnsonspartners #SoMuchMore
It’s hard to believe that Summer will be here in about a month. Yay for waking up late, spending the day by the pool, and watching outdoor movies! One thing I’m not looking forward to is the dry cracked skin that usually accompanies the hot weather. Never fear, I have a super easy Instant Summer Sugar Scrub recipe that comes together in minutes and smells just like a tropical day at the beach!
Am I the last person on the face of the Earth to learn about the awesomeness of JOHNSON’S® baby oil gel with shea & cocoa butter? The gel locks in 10x more moisture than regular lotion and believe me, living in the desert southwest, I need all the moisture I can get! I wish we had “smell-o-vision” because this sugar scrub smells just like Summer! I kept on smelling my hands after testing this sugar scrub because it was almost as if I was relaxing and drinking a fruity beverage by the beach. Almost.
Putting together this scrub couldn’t be easier! Just combine equal parts sugar and baby oil gel in a small container. Mix thoroughly and enjoy! You can mix as much or as little as you want and if you run out, it’s super easy to whip up at the last minute for a luxurious shower. Please keep in mind that the oil will make your bathtub or shower floor extremely slippery so take care!
I thought this would be fun to give my son’s teachers as a end-of-year parting gift and will probably include it in a small galvanized tin with a trashy magazine, $10 iTunes card, and maybe some sunglasses. It’ll be like a Summer survival kit! Since neither the gel nor the sugar will go bad, I know they’ll be able to use it throughout the hot months ahead. I even made a little round label for all of you to use!
So, even though I don’t have “babies” around the house anymore, I’m totally adding JOHNSON’S® baby oil gel with shea & cocoa butter to my grocery list. My boys get really dry skin too (Hello again, desert southwest!) so having this handy is the perfect excuse for me to get in a little bit of hand holding or foot rubbing. They may be getting big but there’s nothing like a mother’s touch to make you feel loved. Goodness knows it all comes back 10 fold to me!
Visit the JOHNSON’S® Brand website for a sweet Mother’s Day message and offer. I absolutely love their #SoMuchMore campaign that recognizes just how important everyday moments are. I hope you enjoy this Instant Summer Sugar Scrub!
