I am going to share a secret with you. I recently ran out of face cream. I have incredibly dry skin and I do not go anywhere without skin cream. I started looking through a catalog and the prices for the items I needed would run $76.00. When I shared this with my husband, his response was that he doesn't wear skin cream, do you really need it?
After forgiving him for his ignorance on this matter, I decided to see if I could find a more inexpensive option. I lucked up on this recipe and I love it. It makes a huge amount for a total of $4.15. Can you believe it? It made so much I put a Tbsp in an old skin care container and the leftovers in a huge Tupperware bowl.
1 jar of Vaseline
1 Bottle of Cocoa Butter Baby Lotion
1 Jar of Vitamin E
Put in a huge bowl and use a hand held mixer to mix. For $4.15, I can slather this on every hour of the day. Let me tell you though; this stuff is powerful. I have gone 24 hours without reapplying. Folks, this is a miracle. I usually have to apply moisturizer at least three times a day.
I bought my items at Dollar General, and I just bought the store brand. I hope you love it as much as I do.
