SSS: Pass or Fail-Body and Lip Scrub

Hi!  I hope everyone is still staying safe at home :).

This is another DIY blog which involves Coffee. Yes, I have been a heavy drinker of coffee since the ECQ started. With all the brewing and drinking… I was left with a lot used ground coffee.

So What should I do with this?

I can’t bring myself to just throw it away knowing it has a high potential to be re-purposed J.  As most of my DIY ideas, I searched google/IG and Youtube to come up with the best way to re-use this coffee ground.

With the ingredients I have at home, I came up with two (2) DIY scrub out of Coffee J

DIY Body Scrub

WHAT YOU NEED

  1. Used Coffee grounds
  2. Airtight container (to make the scrub last a little longer)
  3. Brown sugar
  4. Olive Oil
  5. Your favorite essential oil (optional)

WHAT TO DO

Just Mix:

1 cup – Coffee grounds

   ½ cup- Brown Sugar

   ½ cup- Olive Oil 5 drops of essential oil

PASS or FAIL

PASS – I made this coffee scrub over a month ago already, so I can clearly notice what effect it had on my skin. Aside from the fact that it exfoliates and feels smooth, the most evident effect on my skin would be the lighter complexion of my knees and elbow (promise). The only downside of using coffee scrub is it gets messy in the shower J. However, since I only scrub 2-3x a week it’s okay and the pros outshines the cons!

DIY Lip Scrub

WHAT YOU NEED

  1. Small container
  2. Used Coffee grounds
  3. Honey
  4. Lemon (I used lemon drop)

WHAT TO DO

Just Mix:

1 teaspoon – Coffee grounds

 1 teaspoon – Honey

½ teaspoon- lemon

PASS or FAIL

PASS – Just like the body scrub, it helps exfoliate and smoothen our lips, though I wish it makes our lips pinkish too J. It is easy to make and to use! (at the moment I no longer mix the coffee grounds with honey but just use a pinch after I brew and scrub it on my lips 2x a week).
