How To Make A Foaming DIY Sugar Coffee Scrub

To ensure our budget stays under $3, you don’t have to buy any containers.

You can use any old wide-mouth container in your bathroom or kitchen.

I usually use old condiments jars with lids or the bowl pictured above.

Ingredients and tools

  • a bowl and a spoon to mix
  • an empty wide-mouth container with a lid
  • 1-ounce body wash
  • 1 cup of sugar (white or brown), it doesn’t change anything
  • 1 tbsp coffee.

  • Measure the amount of body wash in a bowl
  • Add the sugar and mix it

  • And add the coffee
  • Transfer the thick foaming DIY sugar coffee scrub into a wide-mouth container.
  • Store it in your bathroom or refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

How To Make A Runny DIY Foaming Sugar Coffee Scrub

If you prefer a runny foamy sugar scrub, use a bottle instead of a jar to store it. And you can skip the coffee in this scrub recipe.


  • Add more body wash, less sugar, and coffee into a measuring cup and mix to your desired consistency,
  • pour the runny sugar coffee scrub into an empty bottle, place the cap,
  • and keep it in your bathroom.

How To Use Foaming Sugar Scrub

Because this is a foaming exfoliant, there are two ways you can use it.

  1. Use it to exfoliate your whole body after a shower. Then rinse off, and moisturize your skin.
  2. Use it straight with exfoliating gloves for a refreshing shower. Don’t forget to moisturize after.

What to look out for in the runny foaming sugar coffee scrub

  • This scrub does not contain an emulsifier, so expect it to settle or separate when stored.
  • But you can give it a little shake before using it again.
  • Also, the sugar would melt into the body wash after some time.
  • I think it makes the body wash richer in texture, and I like it.
  • Lastly, if there’s less sugar than body wash, feel free to add more sugar.


That’s how to make a DIY foaming sugar coffee scrub for under $3, both thick and runny.

Remember that you can skip the coffee in your runny sugar scrub.

So with just a bottle of body wash, a pack of sugar, and coffee, you can make a foaming sugar coffee scrub at home.
