Yes, I know. It’s a terribly overdramatic title. To make matters worse, it’s not even my original recipe! I stole it from a blog, and that person had gotten the recipe from someone else… and a friend of mine was telling me that her mother used to make the very same recipe. All of that is to say: this is a tried and true recipe that’s been around forever.
AND IT’S RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME.
I have super sensitive, crazy dry skin. I get eczema even. So here’s my endorsement: I use this stuff on my face and hands every night. I love the way it smells, and it’s just the perfect amount of moisture for me.
To top everything off, it’s crazy easy to make.
*Giant bottle of Johnson’s Bedtime Lotion
(or the generic equivalent–I normally make it with the Walmart brand)
*Vitamin E Cream
*Vaseline (small jar, 8 to 10ish oz)
Dump all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure the Vaseline is on top.
Mix with a hand mixer until the Vaseline is completely worked in…. that was about 1-2 minutes for me.
Put in bottles. (Here, I just rinsed out the Johnson’s lotion bottle and a few of the Vitamin E jars I’ve saved and recycled them.) For this step, you might consider using an icing gun or icing bag unless you’re putting it into wide-mouthed jars instead of bottles.
And there you have it. The world’s most amazing moisturizer. Let me know if you try it!
