I love everything peppermint. In the past month alone I have created recipes for Peppermint Latte, Peppermint Chip Milkshake, and Peppermint Frosted Brownies. Now that the holidays are officially here, it is time to start thinking about gifts. I don’t know about you, but my list seems to grow every year. So, when the opportunity to work with Amopé came up I knew it was the perfect time to figure out how to make a peppermint sugar scrub. I am still in shock at just how easy it is to make. For just a couple of dollars, in about 5 minutes you have the perfect homemade gift. It is an easy DIY that is great for a gift or for yourself. Bonus: it smells amazing and makes you think of the holidays.
I paired this Peppermint Sugar Scrub with the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File in pink that I found at Target (in the foot care aisle). This foot file buffs away hard skin leaving you with smooth feet. The extra coarse roller head has long lasting micro-abrasive particles with finely ground diamond crystals. Don’t we all need and deserve a little pampering especially with all the holiday prep? Now is a great time to finish all your Christmas gifts. You can save $10 on the Amopé Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File and $15 on the Amopé Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File by visiting this link now through 12/25/17. I also bought a candle, slippers, extra soft towel, body lotion and some fun nail polish. I created some custom printable tags to tie the gift together.
