    Almond & Honey has always been the best combination for my skin-whether it be soap or scrubs. I never thought of making it myself–what a great idea!

    I love face scrubs, particularly interested in the pumpkin, lemon, sugar scrub!

    I think that the lemon & sugar scrub would smell wonderful but everyone says that a coffee scrub is great for your face. I, unfortunately can not use a scrub on my face……it’s sensitive skin just doesn’t work well with soap let along facial scrubs even though I do love them.

    I think I would be licking my fingers more than scrubbing my face! These look amazing! I think I’d try the vanilla olive oil one (with dry skin, I bet it would immediately feel hydrated.)

    Just what i need! there’s too much media events to attend and buffing really sets the mood. I do the olive oil vanilla sugar glow but can really use that lemon scrub as well.

    I will try this come weekend. Thank you for sharing!
