Coffee and Milk Exfoliating Soap DIY

I've been making my own soap for a few years now, usually just basic recipes, but I've even used the plain base I buy at hobby stores. But today I'm bringing you a nice, yummy smelling soap!

I buy the soap bases at Hobby Lobby and use a coupon, they are $9.99 without a coupon and it's 2lbs of soap base which is enough to make 8 bars of soap, that's $1.25 without a coupon, use a 40% off coupon and it's just $.75 per bar of soap (plus any add-ins)

Making this Coffee and Milk Exfoliating Soap, is incredibly easy!

You need just 2 ingredients!

I used a Goat's Milk Base from Hobby Lobby and unused coffee grounds.
Recipe is for 4, 2oz bars of soap

1 lb Goat's Milk Soap Base
3 tbsp Coffee Grounds (can be used or unused)

-Cut your soap into small chunks (it already has cut lines on it to make it easy), and melt in a microwave safe bowl, melt in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted.
-Quickly add in your coffee grounds, stirring to combine well.
-Pour into a mold, I prefer silicone, but the plastic ones at the hobby stores work fine as well.
-Wait to cool (about 40 minutes at room temp) and then pop out of mold.

This can easily be made with any other soap base as well, I just prefer the goat's milk or shea butter is awesome too!

They are exfoliating so they slough off dead skin cells, Caffeine tightens the skin and Coffee brightens the skin! It's perfect to add to soap!
