What You’ll Need for Snowflake Sugar Scrub Cubes:


Glycerin Soap and Coconut OilTo create the white glittery snowflakes, I combined 1/2 lb of clear glycerin soap base with 3 tbsp. of coconut oil in a microwave-safe glass bowl. Melt the ingredients in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring well after each one.

Shimmer Powder for Sugar Scrub CubesCarefully stir in one tablespoon of glitter powder and 1 cup of sugar.

Shimmery Sugar Scrub Cube MixtureThe result is an iridescent white mixture that sparkles and shimmers in the light. Carefully transfer the sugar scrub soap mixture into the snowflake mold and allow to harden (approx 30-60 minutes depending on temperature and humidity).

Glittery Frozen Snowflake Sugar Scrub BarsThese sugar scrub snowflakes are so pretty with an incredible amount of sparkle (that’s SO hard to capture on camera!)!

Glittery Sugar Scrub Snowflake BarsThe snowflakes reminded me of the movie Frozen, so I decided to make another batch in Queen Elsa’s signature icy blue color.

I used the same process as above, except I used shea butter soap base and added blue soap colorant and shimmer pearl powder instead of the glitter powder.

Shimmery and Glittery Frozen Snowflake Sugar Scrub Bars

These pretty snowflake sugar scrub bars work just like you’d imagine a combination of sugar scrub and soap would – gently cleansing and exfoliating dry skin as you rub the bar over your body in the bath or shower. Note: these bars do dissolve faster than a standard bar of soap due to the addition of sugar and coconut oil. One bar will last approximately two baths/showers depending on size.

    1. Yes, each recipe will make approximately six snowflakes, but you may be able to make 7-8 if you pour them a little bit thinner. 🙂
