Foaming-Rose-Sugar-Scrub-Moisturizing-Skin-Exfoliant.jpg

If you love the smell of roses, you’d love this luxurious foaming rose sugar scrub.

One of the reasons I love foaming scrubs is that you don’t have to be rigid about how you use them.

This means you can wash and exfoliate your skin as part of your shower.

Or you can go the regular route of taking a shower first, then scrubbing after.

And whichever way you prefer to use your foaming scrub, you’d still get the benefits.

More on that later.

So this DIY sugar scrub tutorial will show you:

  • how to make a foaming rose sugar scrub,
  • how to use it (two different ways),
  • and my experience using it as well.

Let’s dive in.

How To Make a Foaming Rose Sugar Scrub

To make this rosy pink body scrub, you need a few ingredients and tools.

Feel free to skip or swap anything you may not have.

Ingredients

Tools

  • Blender or food processor
  • Spatula
  • Mason jar with a lid

Instructions

  • Add the body wash or shower gel, rosebuds, rose petals, and white sugar to your blender or food processor.
  • Then blend or pulse a few times until all the ingredients are blended and smooth.
  • Your foaming rose sugar scrub is ready when the petals and rosebuds are just tiny dots. And the scrub has turned pink and looks creamy, like strawberry ice cream.
  • Next, use a spatula to scoop your rose foaming sugar scrub into the mason jar, then place the lid and store it in your bathroom or refrigerator.
  • Because this scrub is made with soap (already contains some preservatives), it would keep well sitting on your countertop.

Important tips to follow when making this soapy rose scrub

You know, making DIY sugar scrubs is all about doing what works for you.

And this covers how you mix your ingredients, leaving out ingredients you are allergic to, and so much more.

Here are some tips to guide you when making this scrub, so you don’t wind up with more scrub than you need.

When making it, I added the sugar, rose petals, and 1/8 of the shower gel, and tried to blend it.

But do you know what happened?

My foaming rose scrub turned out crumbly.

Everything got stuck; the mixture was too thick and crumbly.

Then I added the remaining 1/8 of the shower gel and rosebuds and tried again.

This time the blender blades moved better and gave me the perfect foaming rose sugar scrub.

I added the shower gel a little at a time because I didn’t want the scrub to be too runny.

It is better when crumbly, and you can add more liquid than the other way around.

So remember to add your liquid ingredients a little at a time when making scrubs.

And you can leave out the rosebuds.

It is optional.

How to use your soapy rose scrub

There are two ways you can exfoliate your skin with a foaming sugar scrub.

NOTE: Before your shower, put the amount of foaming rose scrub you need to exfoliate your whole body in another container (this would protect your product from water and keep it fresh).

Keep reading.

Method 1. Foaming sugar scrub with exfoliating gloves

Now, it is recommended to exfoliate your skin after washing. That said, you can exfoliate your skin immediately with a foaming scrub because it contains soap.

So you are washing and exfoliating at the same time. And that’s what I did today.

But if you haven’t tried it before, here’s how to exfoliate your skin with a foaming scrub and exfoliating gloves.

  • Get in your shower and let the warm water dampen and soften your skin.
  • Next, please wear your bathing gloves and get them wet and soft.
  • Then scoop your foaming rose sugar scrub and spread it all over your body, and scrub like you normally wash your body.
  • When you’re done exfoliating, rinse under the shower, then follow with your favorite moisturizer.
  • Your skin would feel clean and smooth.

Method 2. Exfoliating with a soapy scrub after a shower

  1. Take a regular warm shower, and towel your skin until it is damp.
  2. Next, use your fingertips to scoop some foaming rose sugar scrub, spread it on your body, and exfoliate gently.
  3. Take more exfoliant as needed and scrub your whole body.
  4. Let the scrub sit for a few minutes (5 – 10 minutes is fine), then rinse off with lukewarm water.
  5. Remember to apply some moisturizing cream or lotion afterward.

My Experience using this foaming rose sugar scrub.

Since I always use the scrubs I make before sharing them with you, here’s my experience with the foaming rose scrub.

I used method 1 – exfoliated my skin with the soapy rose scrub and a pair of exfoliating gloves.

I used the first method because I wanted to take a quick shower and scrub my skin – which foaming scrubs are perfect for.

Easy spread

And when I scooped the rose foaming scrub, I noticed that it spread easily on the skin, especially as the exfoliating gloves were wet.

Another reason foaming scrubs lay well on the skin is that the ingredients bind with the help of soap.

Not messy

This foaming rose scrub is not messy, it doesn’t make your bathtub or shower floor slippery as it contains no extra oil.

And because the ingredients were blended, no big pieces of rose petals stick to your bathtub or shower stall.

I only noticed some parts of the rosebuds that didn’t blend completely while making the scrub.

But it wasn’t a lot and shouldn’t be a problem.

Clean rinse

It rinses off the skin and leaves it feeling soft, smooth, and lightly scented (thanks to your shower gel).

Keep reading.

Less is more

Yeah, with this scrub, less is more. I think I used about two tablespoons of the rose foaming scrub, which was enough for my whole body.

Face scrub or not?

There are very few DIY scrubs I use on my face.

Some of my favorites are honey coffee scrub, honey sugar scrub, and a few others.

But today, I used this rose foaming scrub on my face, and I guess it was okay.

That said, you don’t have to apply it to your face. Use whatever face care product you’ve been using.

I love to experiment and see what works.

Who knows? I might wake up with breakouts tomorrow because I used a body scrub on my face.

We’ll see.
