Intro: Cookie Dough Sugar Scrub
Make your hands (and body) smell like delicious cookie dough while also making them super soft.
Step 1: Cookie Dough Essentials
The ingredients for this scrub are basically the same as an actual cookie recipe, minus flour and eggs.*
To make ~6 oz of scrub you will need:
Measuring Spoons (if you like being exact, it's also easy to eyeball it)
Mixing Utensil (I like chopsticks)
3 Tbs White Sugar
5 Tbs Brown Sugar
1/3 Tbs Baking Soda
1/3 Tbs Salt
1 1/2 Tbs Oil (I used vegetable because it's what I had. Any oil will do, olive oil would be great for your skin.)
3/4 Tbs Vanilla (or imitation, whatever floats your boat)
1/4 Tbs Water
*Does not contain chocolate chips either, although you could add some mini ones or fine cacao nibs
***Edit: You can also add ~1 Tbs honey, I forgot to add it to this batch.
Step 2: Making the "dough"
Add both sugars, baking soda, and salt to bowl.
Mix to combine.
Add oil, vanilla, and water.
Stir until a homogenous mixture is achieved.
It should be similar in consistency to corn starch and water, that is, it should look liquidy but feel relatively solid to the touch. Add more water to thin it out or more of either sugar to thicken.
Step 3: Using It
To reap the good smell and silky smooth skin, you're going to need to know how to use the scrub.
Wet hands, I like to wash my hands first.
Scoop up a generous amount and rub all over, just like putting lotion on.
Rinse off and apply lotion.
For legs (great for preshave):
Apply generous amount all over leg and rub well.
Rinse off. If using preshave, either wait 30 min to let oil soak in or use some soap to wash it off because it likes to clog razor heads.
For body (shoulders, face, etc):
Scoop up a good amount and rub in.
Great to use as an exfoliant before using your normal cleanser.
