Wake Me Up Face Scrub Day 1

Today I am doing a nice morning face scrub. I am a morning person. I wake up early, shower, and head to work. I love a nice face scrub while I am in the shower. Something that smells nice and gets the job done well. This will be a 2-day study because I made a big mistake on today’s recipe. My ingredients are all just fine, but I did one thing wrong. Keep reading to find out what happened on today’s “what not to do” recipe.

Glycerin Scrub Base
Fine Dead Sea Salt
Pink Kaolin Clay
Lemon Yellow Color
Fresh Fruit Salsa Fragrance Oil

Recipe: Yields approximately 491 grams or 17.32 ounces.

Recipe in Grams
255 grams Glycerin Scrub Base
207 grams Sugar
23 grams Fine Dead Sea Salt
6 grams Pink Kaolin Clay
4 drops Lemon Yellow Oxide
10 drops Fresh Fruit Salsa Fragrance Oil
Recipe in Ounces
8.99 ounces Glycerin Scrub Base
7.3 ounces Sugar
0.81 ounces Fine Dead Sea Salt
0.21 ounces Pink Kaolin Clay
4 drops Lemon Yellow Oxide
10 drops Fresh Fruit Salsa Fragrance Oil
Recipe in Percentages
52% Glycerin Scrub Base
42% Sugar
5% Fine Dead Sea Salt
1% Pink Kaolin Clay

I measured out the sugar first and ran it through a Magic Bullet for 3 seconds. Then I measured everything else out except for the clay and stirred it up. The clay was sort of an afterthought that sounded nice. The color of the Pink Kaolin Clay covered up the Yellow Oxide I had put in. Oh well, I was just sort of putting things together on the fly. I waited about 10 minutes for the clay to absorb the liquid before stirring again and pouring into my containers. So far this sounds good right? Well, someone walked by and asked me what I was making while I was pouring everything into containers. They commented how fluid it was and then asked if I had shaken the container of Glycerin Scrub. NO! Oops. Needless to say, this is not the best scrub. I hope that everyone can learn from my mistake here. The label on the container tells you to shake everything up but I didn’t bother reading it. It is very important to know your product and read labels before using it. Tomorrow I am going to make this recipe again the right way.

    I has a few mishaps of my own this weekend. I set out to make comfrey eye cream, and I ended up with a huge mess. I eyeballed the liquid ratio instead of using the measuring cup. Like you, I am going to try it again. This time, I will use the measuring cup. 🙂

    Fresh fruit salsa f/o sounds like a perfect scent for a morning facial scrub. Thank you for posting a mistake, it is nice to know that I’m not the only one that makes these kinds of mistakes and it makes me feel better about the ones I have made while I have been learning. I am excited to see how it turns out tomorrow.

    I just have to say I never would have thought to use my magic bullet blender for something like this! What a great idea! This would save me a lot of mess for my smaller recipes!

    Using the magic bullet is a great idea for a face scrub. I’m not fond of any salt near a client’s eyes. But a great recipe nonetheless.
