I love a good exfoliating experience with all kinds of scrubs and body polishes. Over the years I have been lucky enough to beable to learn and to create all kinds of scrubs and exfoliators.
This is definitely one of my favorites. It tookme some time to come up with this formua. It’s so simple and so perfect – the color, the amount of exfoliants, the smell, the texture, the way it leaves my skin cleansed and moisturized at the same time. You can make your own version of this recipe and change quite a few things, it’s up to you.
- a mixer or a spatula or a whisk
- mixing bowl
- kitchen or labarotory scales
- jars or squeeze bottles (the product is too thick for a pump-up bottle
Now, let’s meet our ingredients.
The foundation of this recipe is foaming bath whip (foaming bath butter) which you can buy at many soaps suppliers or you can make your own from scratch. I make my base which I love, it’s not difficult at all but if it’s the first time you making it then it’s a good idea to make a small batch and see how it works for you.
I have tried a few formulas and I am going to link to the ones I liked the most down below:
