how long should i apply it for. Sounds interesting.
I think they are available in 8 colors pink, rose, peony, apricot, beige. This is a sugar based ex foliating treatment that smells like orange creamsicles.

Debbie, If I wanted to bottle this for sale could I add preservetives?
I think adding preservetives is not good for health.
what you say about it?
I don't think adding preservatives would be bad for your skin, do you!? I would think it would be ok if you are not injesting it!

This recipe sounds amazing! My mom and sisters decided that we should all have a girls night in so I plan to test this recipe tonight. It would be wonderful if it helped make my mom's hand softer. She has a bad case of dry skin and lotions don't help for long. Thank you for posting this. I will provide reviews later. Big Grin
