Well, we’re getting personal today — When it’s your, ahem, time of the month; what do you do for yourself to make yourself feel better? For me, I spend some serious time pampering myself!
For my bachelorette party, my friends threw me a fun party and we made some awesome sugar scrub. Since then, I’ve been making my own sugar scrub and keeping it in the bathtub for times of pampering and scrubbing after I shave. This sugar scrub is incredibly moisturizing and doesn’t have bad chemicals. Also, you more than likely have everything to make it at home!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this Cotton Candy Sugar Scrub:
2 cups sugar, divided
Food coloring, red and blue (or you can use soap colorant if you have it!)
Heaping scoop of coconut oil
Scent of your choice (I used vanilla because when combined with coconut it creates a cotton candy smell!)
Divide your sugar into four sections of a 1/2 c. I wasn’t exact on my measurements, so adjust your sugar scrub accordingly. Add a few drops of your food coloring, and then mix together until there are no clumps of saturated color.
Once mixed, it should be light blue or light pink. Add a scoop of your coconut oil and scent, and mix gently for a few seconds and then add another 1/2 c. of sugar, and mix completely.
Next, to make it look even more like cotton candy, take an apothecary jar and tilt on its side. Then, add one color, and the other on top of it. Then, very gently, mix together until it is just mixed. I like using an apothecary jar instead of a mason jar because it’s easier to use, but feel free to use whatever kind of vessel you would like.
While I was at Walmart this week, I picked up a few things including some feminine products! I ran across The Style N’Store packs, which are the perfect way to store your products month to month by keeping your space organized.
Actually, if you looked at my cabinet before I bought this box, you would have found bags lying all over the place! These U by Kotex® Cleanwear® Ultra Thin Pads help stop leaks, they stay secure with Tru-Fit® wings and are great for comfort. I also picked up the U by Kotex® Barely There® Liners – and they’re so comfortable you don’t even remember you’re on your period and keep you nice and clean.
Right now, you can purchase 2 packs of U by Kotex® products at Walmart for a free reward! Once you purchase the 2 packs, text UbyKotex to 811811 and upload a photo of your receipt. Then, go to UbyKotexrewards.com and register to choose your customized reward. I love that Walmart always makes it easier to save more money when you already save so much by shopping there!
