I recently discovered that there are tons of videos on Youtube that show how to apply makeup. It's so helpful! I'm 24 but I still wonder if I'm doing it wrong. Smiley

The book I got this recipe from didn't come with instructions for storing. Since there are no preservatives added, I assume it can't last too long.. but I used it for over a month without any problem. At that point, I threw it out just because I wanted a fresh batch and it's so cheap to make.

Pattern/Idea from Last-Minute Knitting Gifts







It's knit one slip one on one side, and just straight knitting on the other side. It's supposed to be used with alpaca yarn, but I am too cheap for that. I used wool/polyester. It is so warm and thick and snuggly and I love it!

I got my jars from Ikea.

Another idea....   I've heard of someone trying this recipe with pomegranate tea and orange zest. So many possibilities!

They looked like they had exploded/melted. It must have been too much witch hazel.. I wish I hadn't bought the $8 bottle of it now! Thanks for pointing out the tutorial. I will give it a shot.

I thought I did everything right. I followed a recipe, put it it n a mold for 15 minutes, tapped it out, and left it sitting out. It looked perfect. Almost an hour later, it looked like it exploded or melted!
I had mixed 1 1/2 cups baking soda with 1/2 cup citric acid, added a few drops of color, spritzed with witchhazel while mixing. and put it in the mold. Did I do something wrong?

I'm so happy that people like this scrub as much as I do!
I didn't have a problem with a lack of scent when I made my batch.. maybe your lemon peel wasn't fresh? Hmm..

The title is The Big-Ass Book of Crafts and it's by Mark Montano. There are a few beauty product recipes, but most of the book is other household crafts. It is such a great book.

Thanks everyone! I know it's stupid, but this is the first thing I've made and not bought, so I thought it was pretty cool. Smiley

How would these store? In the fridge? Or is the honey and lemon juice enough to prevent ickyness? The recipe looks great. I am a slow scrubber, lol.

The book I got this recipe from didn't come with instructions for storing. I have not been storing it in the fridge; it's sitting in my bathroom. It's been almost a month since I've made it, and there is no ickyness. I planned on using it up within a month or two. I use it liberally, every time I shower. It's such a cheap recipe that I don't feel the need to conserve it.

By the way, in addition to being exfoliating, it's pretty moisturizing. I have SUPER dry/sensitive skin, and I think it's the olive oil that feels great.
