Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This would be a great stocking stuffer, especially for the women, but I have a few questions about it. First, I can't quite wrap my head around the idea of something sticky in a bar of soap! Then, wouldn't the crushed candy be rough? Or does it dissolve fast enough when the soap is used?

Such great questions! I looked at Starr's blog to see if others had similar questions, and this is what she said: "I was worried the crushed candy cane would be sticky but not at all it an excellent exfoliate. Thanks for checking it out!" I hope that helps! -Editor of FaveCrafts

That definitely helps, thank you! )
