I wanted to give Sarah something fun for back to college time. She really has the essentials already since she’s a senior this year. I started to look for DIY beauty gift ideas that were both fun and useful. I remembered that a friend of mine made “ice cream” sundaes with bath puffs and came up with this idea.

When my friend made this, she used an ice cream sundae dish, which I don’t have. I decided to stop by the thrift store and I found this neat crystal goblet that works just fine.


  • Sundae dish, goblet or other type of glass
  • Epsom salts
  • Pink bath puff
  • Red bottle of nail polish
  • Schick® Quattro for Women Disposable Razor

Stocking up for college beauty

Sarah and I went shopping at Walmart last month so I know the Schick® Quattro for Women Disposable Razor is one of her favorites. The Papaya and Pearl Complex leaves her with smooth legs that aren’t irritated. I know that feeling confident about your appearance goes a long way when you’re a college student.  Plus, there are 4 blades on this disposable razor so she could go a day or two without shaving and still have smooth legs.

  • Fill the Mason jar about half full with Epsom salts. You can use unscented or the kind with added essential oils. I know she loves the scent of lavender so I added lavender essential oil.

  • Put the pink bath puff in the jar, on top of the Epsom salts.
  • Take the Schick® Quattro for Women Disposable Razor and place it behind the bath puff so it looks like a straw (razor head down).
  • Take the bottle of red nail polish and place it upside down so the jar looks like a cherry on top.

If you’ll be mailing this to your daughter or packaging it, instead of pouring the bath salts loose in the glass, put them in a plastic baggie and tie with a string to keep it from making a mess.

This is a fun way to surprise your daughter with a back to college gift that’s fun and useful. After moving in, she can disassemble the gift and treat herself to a nice hot bath!
