Coffee Grounds | Pumpkin Powder | Pumpkin Spice
Everybody loves coffee (says the avid tea-head that rarely drinks coffee). So, let me rephrase *clears throat* everyone loves a pumpkin spice latte. Yes, you read that correctly: this bar is inspired by the infamous PSL and is affectionately called the Basic B!tch Bar, or B.B.B. for short!
If I was going to create a super exfoliating bar, there was going to have to be an excessive amount of coffee grounds incorporated into it. I also wanted to use this pumpkin powder I had bought as an impulse buy, curious to use it in a soap! With those first two ingredients, I figured the perfect third additive would be pumpkin spice powder, to create a Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) type bar.
Because of the outrageous amount of coffee that was already going to be a super exfoliating bar, and I wanted to base it off of a pumpkin spice latte, I decided to add pumpkin powder into the mix. Pumpkin powder has a lot of amazing vitamins and enzymes that help detoxify and brighten skin. So not only is there a manual exfoliator from the coffee, but also a chemical exfoliator in the form of pumpkin powder. Lastly, to complete the PSL vibes, I made sure to include pumpkin spice powder (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger).
Data & Conclusion:
This bar is VERY exfoliating. Perfect for crusty elbows, thick skin on your heels, tough grease (we've seen car repair grease be removed with ease and have heard it made light work of jet fuel compared to literally every other soap), and removing resin from skin, all without drying the skin.
You can still reap all the benefits of this bar if it sounds too aggressive for you, by using this bar inside one of our soap saver bags!

This is my go-to exfoliating bar, I don't use it everyday since it is very exfoliating, but I treat it like a scrub and it does great! Much preferred over sticky sugar scrubs, and smells better too IMO.
The coffee helps exfoliate areas of my back there I have a lot of dark spots and acne scars. It doesn’t leave me feeling greasy like sugar scrubs!
I love that this soap captures the subtle hint of my fave seasonal drink (PSL). The texture is perfect for scrubbing my feet, almost like a pumice stone. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
Triple B EXFOLIATES and smells like a really relaxed uh morning where you actually have time for a cup of joe before the work day breaks up your feng shui. The first night the scrub was a bit intense, but it got easier to tolerate after that. All-in-all it makes me want to try out more of Herbal Hannah’s creations.
Also, my first package from Hannah was stolen by God knows who (the mail human 🙄) and she sent me a new one free of charge. Thank you for that unforgettable kindness!
