Valentine’s Day Sweethearts Sugar Scrub – Add a handful of sweethearts to a simple homemade sugar scrub for a fun Valentine’s DIY that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth!

What do you think of when you hear the words Valentine’s Day?

Did you say hearts?

Yep, that’s what I was thinking.  Hearts and sweethearts also known as conversation hearts.  These are so popular this time of year so I decided to make a simple sugar scrub and add crushed sweethearts.  This is such a fun little homemade beauty project especially if you want soft skin during these cold, dry winter months.

Sweethearts Sugar Scrub

I’m actually a little obsessed with using sugar scrubs to exfoliate my skin.   Sugar scrubs are simple to make and incredibly moisturizing and exfoliating to the skin.  They can be used on your face, body, and feet leaving your skin soft and smooth.  I especially love using them on my hands.

(Now I’m also obsessed with writing messages out using conversation hearts)

This sugar scrub is super easy to make and perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I love the color the conversation hearts add to the sugar scrub.  Such a simple way to pamper yourself.

Ingredients Needed to Make Valentine’s Day Sugar Scrub

Sugar – Just grab the white granulated sugar that you have in your pantry. No need to buy special sugar for this sugar scrub.

Carrier oil – I used melted coconut oil but any organic oil will work. Olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil are a few of my favorite oils to use in sugar scrubs.

Sweethearts candy (conversation hearts) – I love how the crushed candy adds pops of color to this sugar scrub.
