DIY lotion everyone will beg for!

Hey girls–how did your weekend go?   I have been fighting an awful cold for a week now.

I feel horrible:(  The kids are off to school now so I am hoping to get into a new routine this week.  What about you?

I am a lotion freak.  After every shower I lotion.  I have for years.  Last year I was in a rut though because I couldn’t find a smell that I really loved.

While perusing Pinterest I found this recipe that I am sure you all have seen.   Wondering if it was really as good as it said I gathered up the three ingredients

and mixed up a batch.  I am not a big fan of baby lotion..on me.  On babies yes–so I tried a baby lotion that did not smell like a baby– Johnson & Johnson’s Natural lotion.

I LOVED loved it!  I loved how it soaked into my skin but left it soft for hours.  However I did not like the smell all that well.

This summer I used it in lieu of sun tan lotion…this time I used Nuetrogena’s Sesame lotion.  Now we are getting somewhere.  Funniest thing on vacation

one morning over coffee I was using it and my sister asked what it was.  I explained and she swiped some creamy goodness and put it on her feet…lol!  We have a family history of

dry heels.

Then my mom used it and upon return from vacation Nikki put it on Karalina and Khloey after their bath.  Chelsee asked what that smell was:)

Everyone loved it I said I would do a post about it.

Seriously – it is wonderful.  It is a thicker lotion…much like Eucerin.

Next I am going to try going back to Bath & Body Works or Victoria Secret to see if they have a new smell out that I might fall in love with for the fall.

Fall lotiony smells….ummm.  Do you have a favorite lotion?

My sister thought it would make sweet little gifts so when I saw these baby mason jars I thought ” what a perfect size for giving “

You could put scrapbook paper in the lids…so cute!

I picked up an inexpensive glass jar and applied a chalkboard removable sticker from Martha Stewart.

You can write whatever you wish….:)

Have you tried this recipe yet?  If not—DO!


Your favorite lotion 8oz.

Vaseline 8oz.  This time I used the Cocoa butter Vaseline:)

Vitamin E comes in a two pack at Wal-Mart.  I use one jar.

Mix it all together and decant it into a pretty container and enjoy.

Here is to a beautiful week … Happy Monday … xoxotiff


Kathysue - I will have to try this. My all time fav lotion is the old Neutrogena Swiss formula, which they changed the fragrance two years ago and now it is no longer my fav, but the sesame oil comes close. I use to be asked all the time what kind of lotion was I wearing because it smelled so good. I am just like you when it comes to lotions so I think I will have to try this one!! Thanks,

kristin - Oh my, this looks awesome. I always have dry skin expecially now. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.XOOX

tara - I LOVE it.

I’ll have to make some! I’m trying my best to make some of these things I’ve been pinning for a year!

Love the pretty jar! I’m gonna pin it to my boards!

Jenigrl - Hi Tiff!
This lotion sounds amazing! I also have dry heels and my Momma had made some homemade lotion about 2 yrs ago and it was really good! (I think homemade is best no matter what it is LOL!!) I will try this recipe this week! Thanks for sharing it!

How was Gracie Girl’s first day of School?
Hope wonderful!
Have a great week!

JoAnn - Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
I am going to keep it as an idea for christmas

Gloria - I love this!! I made this on Tuesday – made a double recipe using just a couple of tweaked for personal taste, & had enough to fill 12 – 4 oz. Jelly jars to the top! Gave one to my friend/neighbor & she loves it, too.
Thanks for sharing – this is so wonderful I doubt I will ever use OTC Potion again! Love it!!!!

Dascha - Love this stuff! My husband gets really dry skin so I make his out of the Bath and Body Works men scents. He won’t use the girly stuff! He loves it as well…we will never go back to anything else! I love the versatility of it being so easy to change the scents and use any type of lotion. I’ve even used Suave sweet pea because it smelled good, and that worked just the same. Thanks for your post!
