    Pink Sugar Failure

    Ok, so I HP my soap, and I read so many reviews on Pink Sugar FO. The description of it sounded like something I would want to make, so I strolled into Sephora and smelled some Pink Sugar Lotion. It smelled just like the description. From what I could gather, many versions of Pink Sugar were...
