It's up!

So the new sugar scrub is up on the website....yeah!!! I've taken some pictures of the different tests that I thought I would include here for you wonderful readers :) The top two pictures are what the scrub looks like normally.

This is my own recipe :)

So I wanted to test what heat would do to the new sugar scrub so I put it in a 170 degree oven for 1/2 hour. The above picture is what resulted. Not too bad I think. You can see some oil separation but not bad at all. After a few minutes, the scrub went back to normal.

Then I wanted to see what would happen if it were even hotter so I cranked the oven up to 250 degrees and put the sugar scrub in a pyrex cup (not sure if the plastic container would melt at that heat) and I cooked the scrub for 5 hours!!! Here is what happened:

It got pretty thin but it held together...the oils didn't separate from the sugar. Once it sat on my counter for 15-20 minutes it was back to it's normal consistency.

So as we come in to our hottest months you just need to remember that if you get a scrub that is runny, just let it sit out on the counter or in your fridge for a few minutes and it will go back to normal.

Mom is headed home :(

I'll be closing the store tomorrow (Thursday) because I have to head down to Philly and put my mom on a flight back home.

Cross your fingers that she get's home on her own! She's only flown a few times and one time, it was a total nightmare. Long story short...she was lost for over 7 hours with no cell phone, no phone numbers on her to call anyone. She ended up in an area of Allentown, I wouldn't step foot in, after midnight *shivers* Note to all travelers out there; If you have a connecting flight to Allentown from Newark NJ, it is NOT a plane, it is a BUS!!!

This time I purchased her a "throw away" cell phone. I programmed it with every number I could think of, AND she's flying non-stop lol.

Going to pee my pants!

I'm so excited...I'm going to pee my pants! I have made the most awesome sugar scrub!! It leaves my old lady skin sooooooo silky soft I.....yes ME....I DIDN'T NEED LOTION AFTER MY SHOWER!!!!!!

It's not like the oil & sugar mess, from the days of old, that you needed to stir prior to using to get it to mix but it is FULL of awesome butters and oils like cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and extra virgin olive oil *sighs*

I listened to you girls and I think I have made something you will love.
  • It has zero water in it (take a look at your favorite sugar scrubs and I bet one of the first few ingredients is water...heck, my other scrub has water in it)
  • It is made with lots o'sugar so it is the consistency of cookie can roll it in to a soft squishy ball :)
  • It is a foaming sugar scrub
  • It rinses clean
Here is the ingredient list: sugar, cocoa butter, coconut oil, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sweet almond oil, extra virgin olive oil, shea butter, cetearyl alcohol, fragrance oil, behentrimonium methosulfate, polysorbate 60, propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynl butylcarbamate.

I'm ordering jars for it and it will be available on the website soon. Stay tuned!!
