I used this scrub to get rid of my faded fake tan and it took maybe 5 minutes to scrub my entire body rid of the tan. It also left my skin hydrated and super soft. I’ll be using this coconut coffee scrub at least once a week. Plus, it smells heavenly.

How To Make A Coconut Coffee Scrub
Melt the coconut oil by placing it in the microwave for 30 seconds then mix it with the coffee and coconut sugar. Add in vanilla essential oil to give it even more of a yummy smell. I put around 10 drops or so.
Put the scrub in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator. Try to keep water out of it or else mold might start to grow.
Every time I open my jar of this coffee scrub, I’m immediately hit with that yummy coffee smell with hints of coconut and vanilla. Your body will thank you and smell pretty good after using this scrub too.
There are so many benefits in the ingredients used for this DIY body scrub. You’d be crazy to not want to gulp up the anti-aging, moisturizing, exfoliating, and cellulite-reducing benefits.
If you’re not into the smell of coffee, try making this sugar scrub. It uses strawberry and lemon!
