|Here I am on Day 2 with the corrected recipe (or rather corrected way to do the same recipe). The only thing that I changed today was omitting the use of the Lemon Yellow color. The Pink Kaolin Clay has such a strong natural color so there is no point in using the yellow color.
Recipe: Yields 491 grams or 17.32 ounces.
The final product from today was much thicker and does not separate. I did a comparison picture to show what your product looks like when you do not use the Glycerin Scrub Base properly. It took the weekend for this much separation to happen. Who would want to pay for a product that does this? Not me. I prefer the one on the right.
Can’t wait to try this.
I need to try this. I am not a morning person and I sure need a wake me up!
I love this glycerin base for scrubs! My family loves it too! 🙂
Can’t you just shake up the one on the left before using it? I hate to waste stuff…
You can shake it up but it is not as effective of product. The mixture is too thin and does not make a very effective scrub. The glycerin scrub is much thicker after shaking it up properly and is a better base for the intended product.
I think I would make this without fragrance for me, but I love a good scrub.
I noticed that after most scrubs my face feels wonderful… but then later on in the day my skin gets super greasy and inevitably I break out within a day or so. What kind of scrub would prevent that? I don’t have greasy skin as a rule, and I’d like to be able to use a scrub without hating the aftereffects.
Hrm, what could I use as a base that is sulphate free? Sulphates tend to make my eczema act up =( Perhaps a nice glycerin based liquid castile? I’d love to try this recipe if I could find a suitable replacement for the base! <3
I think this will be amazing for me this winter! I have oily skin, but so much dead skin build up! My cells seem to turn themselves over faster than my skin can slough them off, so I need a little extra help 🙂
