I hate dry skin and I have very dry, flaky skin. My feet are gross, my legs are always dry and itchy. Yeah, I know, TMI, but it is true and maybe some of you are the same way (especially if you are one of my sisters!)
About a year ago a friend made me some lotion because a friend of hers from work had given her the recipe. She loved it so much that she had to share it with me, because that is what friends do - share. Now I love it so much that I want to share it with you!
This lotion is AMAZING! It is a thicker lotion and a touch oily (but not too much, just perfect) so if you don't have super dry skin this probably isn't the right lotion for you. If you use this regularly the dry, flaky, itchy is going to go away. Even the lizard heels will be soft. Since I am starting to sound like a commercial I am going to STOP and actually share with you how to make this AMAZING lotion!
There are only 3 ingredients
- Big bottle of Johnson's Baby Lotion (27 oz) - I like the honey apple over the regularly scented baby lotion because i don't feel comfortable walking around smelling like a baby, but that is just me
- Vitamin E Skin Care Cream double pack (4 oz ea) - I found it at Walmart
- Small Jar of Petroleum Jelly (7.5 oz) - brand doesn't matter
Scoop all of the ingredients into a bowl. Save the containers so you can put the new and amazing lotion back into them.
With a hand mixer stir until well blended.
Then scoop back into regular containers. I didn't reuse the Johnson's pump bottle because the lotion is so thick. So you will need a couple extra containers. I filled 7 containers. It does make a lot so don't forget to share with your friends and family because I am sure they will love this stuff too!
