Another Squeel Worthy Outcome! Mocha Coffee Scrub Bars


I am so, so thrilled with how these turned out.  Full disclosure- I attempted to make these one other time but it was a total failure that I turned into regular ol' coffee sugar scrub in a jar.  But success!  Yahoo!  I am loving these.  

The coffee bean on top is purely decoration.  These have fresh, ground coffee (cheap stuff is okay here), granulated sugar, cocoa butter, a little beeswax (which I did not use the first go 'round), a pinch of cinnamon (leave this out if you are sensitive to cinnamon on your skin), baking soda, and corn starch.  The coffee and sugar both provide the exfoliating features.  The coffee also stimulates the skin and is supposed to help smooth out cellulite prone areas.  The cocoa butter gives a chocolate scent to these and helps to moisturize the skin.  

You use these just as you would other sugar scrubs (see my last post if you are unsure what to do with these.)

Another test kitchen success!
