  • 1/4 c
    sugar (yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar
  • 1/2 c
    oil (you can use any oil, olive oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil)
  • 3 Tbsp
    citrus (lime or lemon)
  • 1-2



  1. Mix everything together in a bowl.
  2. Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes. Shave your legs
  3. Rub some of this mixture all over your legs. The sugar will help rub off all dirt and dead skin. Rub, rub. Feels like a mini massage.
  4. Rinse it all off, shave again. I would use one razor per leg if you have two. You will be rinsing this razor a lot. You'll be GROSSED out by the amount of dead skin you'll be “shaving” off. It's insane! Trust me, you’ll see.
  5. Rub your legs again! Second coat of wax, oh yeah.
    Rinse off! You can use a mild soap to help get some of the oil off.
  6. Lotion your legs up, and feel the silkiness!
  7. Perfect for feet as well. You and your better half can give each other foot massages...FANTASTIC!!!
