I was playing around with the lip scrub idea and I thought, “Why can’t I mix it just like frosting?” After all, I make a chocolate frosting in my food processor occasionally, and I love it on saltine crackers. The chocolate frosting still has a granular texture from the sugar, and that is fairly close to what I want in a lip scrub. If you don’t know what I mean, imagine creaming butter and sugar together in the mixer for cookie dough until the butter is nearly white and the entire mixture is fluffy. That is the texture I’m looking for.
Back to the lip scrub. We have a food processor in our kitchen here at work, so I borrowed it for a while for testing purposes. I thought “If I can make candy in a plastic bowl and not have the flavor stick, I wonder if a cosmetic flavor would stick?”
I’m going to use the same recipe that I posted on February 20th. First things first, I weighed my ingredients into a beaker and then used a rubber scraper to scrape the ingredients into the food processor bowl. I put the lid on the bowl and pulsed the lip scrub until it was completely mixed. I did have to scrape the sides of the bowl twice to make sure everything was mixed.
Perfect! The mixing in the bowl meant I didn’t have to melt any ingredients, and I love the fluffy look of the scrub. The best part is that I washed the bowl, and the flavor didn’t stay!
