Exfoliating Scrubs

Hi all,

I'm looking for a good exfoliating scrub to start using.  I've been eyeing a few scrubs I can make at home that I found on Pinterest, but I'm really not sure what to try.  I have fairly sensitive skin so I want something fairly gentle, but that will give my legs a good shine now that the warmer weather is showing up.  Anyone have a recommendation?

I make my own using sugar and almond oil.  I don't really know the measurements, but it would probably be like 2c sugar and maybe 1/3c of the oil.  Just add the oil slowly until it's the consistency you want.  I like mine to not be too oily.  After that, if you want scent, you can add a few drops of any essential oil you'd like.  I store my sugar scrub in a glass jar and keep it in the bathroom.

Excellent!  Thanks so much.  I love having a recipe I can mix up from things I already have on hand.  I'll give this a try!
