Crochet Heart Face Scrubbies

Maybe you want to practice some self love and care, or gift your galentine’s this February, instead of the usual Valentine’s fuss? These crochet heart face scrubbies will add a little extra to your skincare routine or a super quick make to send some love to your nearest and dearest.

If the cleansing pads aren’t cute enough on their own, the heart shaped basket definitely is!

Made in aran cotton, they’re washable and durable and whip up in minutes. I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran, my favourite cotton, mainly thanks to the huge colour range and softness.
