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!
I am going to have to try this. Noah has horribly dry skin and excema. He hates using anything though….does it make you feel greasy?
This recipe is ever so slightly greasy feeling. To make it less greasy, use less vaseline. Thanks for the question!
