Sugar Olive Oil Scrub (Recipe by Michelle Phan)

You Need:

  • Three tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Two tablespoons organic honey (does not have to be organic, regular honey is fine, too)
  • One half cup organic sugar (does not have to be organic, regular sugar is fine too, but no Splenda)
  • Measuring utensils
  • One chopstick or stirring stick
  • One clean container


  • Add the extra virgin olive oil to your container.
  • Next, add the honey. * NOTE: Adding in this order will help to get all the honey out of the measuring utensil
  • Add the sugar to the mixture.
  • Stir well with the chopstick or stirring stick.


  • These amounts don’t have to be exact, and you can adjust the proportions as needed.
  • Do not store in the fridge.

To Apply:

  • Wash your face and make sure your makeup is completely removed before applying the scrub.
  • Use a tiny spatula to scoop one little scoopful, and apply all over your face.
  • Scrub in a broad, circular motion (avoid your eye area!).
  • After about 60 seconds, rinse off the mixture.
  • Pat dry your face.

    Hey Catherine! How long does this scrub last after it’s made?

    • Catherine

      Hi Shirlee! I’d use it right away, or store in the fridge for a week or so :)

  • Shirlee

    Can you use brown sugar? or does is it have to be white sugar?

    • Catherine

      Hi Shirlee!! I don’t EVER have white sugar in my house, so yes you can definitely use a brown sugar like Rapadura!
