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.

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.
