Do you like Pina Coladas? OK, I couldn’t resist. But, honestly, if you have been looking for a sugar scrub cubes recipe, you have got to try these! So, if you don’t know, Pina Colada is a cocktail that is made with rum, pineapple, and coconut. So, this sugar scrub cube recipe is scented with pina colada fragrance oil to remind you of that cocktail.

Sugar Scrub Cubes

So, I’ve done quite a few sugar scrub recipes on this blog in the past. And, I’ve done a few sugar scrub cube or bar recipes. But, what’s the difference? So, a sugar scrub is typically stored in a jar and is scooped out by hand. It tends to be sugar, some type of oil, and a fragrance. With a sugar scrub cube or bar, you are adding a melt and pour soap base to the recipe so that it has a firm shape. That means that sugar scrub cubes can be used the same way that soap can. So, think of it as an exfoliating soap because it has the best of both items.

Do sugar scrubs really work?

Yes, I love sugar scrubs. They are a great way to exfoliate away dead skin or to encourage new skin growth. As you age, your skin becomes dull and is more prone to being dry. A sugar scrub can help return moisture to your skin which can make your skin look younger. These sugar scrub cubes are an easy way to combine cleansing soap and exfoliating scrubs.

Can you make sugar scrub cubes without soap?

I’ve never made a sugar scrub cube recipe that didn’t have soap as a base. It’s what gives your sugar scrub a solid form. There may be a recipe out there. But, if there is, I haven’t tried it. If I come across one, I will certainly update the post to reflect that. 

Sugar scrub bars would be made in a rectangular-shaped mold. These sugar scrub cubes are made in a smaller, more square mold. If you wanted to make these sugar scrub cubes larger so they would be soap-bar size, you can certainly do that. You may need to let them dry a bit longer to make up for the larger size.

How long do sugar scrubs last?

It depends on how large a jar of sugar scrub you make. These cubes should last between two and three uses. But, it really depends on how long you use them each time. And, it’s important that you keep them dry in between uses. So, don’t let them sit in a puddle of water.

When you’re done with your bath or shower, let the sugar scrub cubes dry off. Then, put them back into an airtight container until you need them next time. You can use a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. Or, you can use a Ziploc bag and seal it shut. Just don’t let it stay wet all the time or it won’t last long at all.
