Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we absolutely love making our own DIY sugar scrubs and bath salts – we do it all the time. I mean, why buy something generic when you can make a completely personalized experience?! And then, if you give DIY sugar scrubs and bath salts as a gift, what you’re really giving is the gift of having an excuse to relax for a few minutes.

That’s genius.

So, when I was inspired to mix cucumber and melon into some cucumber melon sugar scrub cubes for a gift I was making?! Well, I felt like I just hit genius-level 10. Let’s get started.

Tips to Make these Sugar Scrub Cubes

  • You can use any mold for your sugar scrub cubes, but make sure it is silicone. This cube mold is what we used and the cubes just pop right out!
  • Definitely store these cucumber melon sugar scrub cubes in an airtight container so they don’t get damp in your bathroom.
  • When you’re ready to use them, just gently crush them in your hands – you don’t need to crush them completely. Then just massage the mashed cucumber melon sugar scrub over your skin in a small, circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
