Sugar scrub is great for exfoliating your skin, though it can be rather messy to use. The good news is that you can make sugar scrub in a more solid, bar form, which is less messy than a regular sugar scrub, and rather easy to make.
Simply start with a small amount of melt and pour soap base, which will help to solidify your sugar scrub bars. These bars are nice and small, so they are perfect for one time use. The remaining sugar scrub bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
