As I’ve mentioned before I am a Pintrest addict…despite all the great reasons that I shouldn’t be, like time, I’m hooked. One of the things I’ve seen a lot lately is a recipe for what is supposed to be the best moisturizing hand lotion ever. Well…I have to say I tried it and I liiiiike it.
So here’s the recipe I followed (from Patchwork):
8 ounces baby lotion
4 ounces petroleum jelly
4 ounces vitamin E gel
Whip all ingredients together and put into lotion containers.
This works beautifully. When you first rub it on there’s a moment where it feels just a little greasy and I found myself wondering if I’d made a mistake, but given a minute or two for it to soak in it was lovely. Good enough that when I pulled the lotion out last night to put on my hands Bunneh batted his eyelashes at me until I rubbed it on his feet too. Yeah, I’m a sucker for those big hazel eyes.
Next I’m going to try it with a sandlewood cinnamon lotion as the base.
