Sweet! I did get a little crazy tho.

(L to R) Green glitter Cucumber melon, Plumeria and Oat w glitter, 2 obligatory army men plumeria with glitter, red dye w plumeria, Coffee and cheerios ((Ok, my reasoning at 3 am was coffee is supposed to "awaken" your skin cells the way it would if you drank it and I figured the cheerios would exfoliate well. It looks like a lump of tobacco  Eew. Smells good tho.)) and the last is "hot chocolate" made of cocoa powder, vanilla fragrance and stirred in sugar. Sugar = exfoliant.

Interesting. For the coffee one, did you use ground up beans? I'm not sure how else you could do it, but the color looks really even and I think if I used coffee beans it wouldnt look so nice.  Smiley I bet it smells incredible.

Haha. Yes, I used ground beans. The soap is tricky cause when I put down the first layer, I put in a whole bunch of grounds and stirred it so the color all combined. Then I wanted another layer and I put the grounds on just the top so when you turn it sideways it looks like there are 3 layers 'cause the middle is completely clear.  Cheesy

these are really cute.
did you use craft glitter or soap glitter?
i saw soap glitter at michaels today but i wondered if using normal craft glitter would be okay.

The army men are awesome! I lol'ed seeing that. That is a brilliant idea which I might copy (hope you don't mind). My husband's 30th birthday is in a few weeks and I wanted to make something kitschy but useful to give the guests and that is just brilliant. Grats on your first soap attempt! Grin
