    5 Salt Scrubs I Love

    May 25, 2010

    Want to know some of my favorite blends for salt scrubs? I leave mine right in the shower or by the tub, and use them every few days. If I want to use them on my face, I substitute the salt for brown sugar and the rest of the recipe stays the same. […]
