Hey guys! I seen an interesting post on Facebook yesterday for a lotion recipe from The Skirt Girl. The lotion she was making was what she called Super Lotion - a super hydrating/moisturizing lotion made with baby lotion and a few other items. I hadn't ever heard of this before, but it sounded intriguing! I went out and got the stuff to make it today, and you can see below exactly how I did it. You can also see the post where I got the recipe here.
1 15oz bottle of Johnson's Baby Lotion
1 4oz tub of Vitamin E Skin Care Cream
3/4 cup petroleum jelly
1 cap full of Vitamin E oil
Put everything in a mixing bowl and mix until light and fluffy, then transfer to a container to use! That's it!
Dana, the author of the article, uses an empty ketchup bottle for her Super Lotion. I didn't have any empty bottles like that, so I just used the bottle my baby lotion came in. I put the lotion in a gallon freezer bag, snipped the corner of the bag, and then just piped it in.
You have quite a bit more than what will fit in the bottle (obviously), so I closed the hole I had snipped in the freezer bag I was using with a paper clip. (See above). Then I put that freezer bag into a new/uncut freezer bag and sealed it shut. I will store this under the sink in the bathroom and refill my bottle as I need to.
I slapped a label on my bottle and voila, I am done! I just made this stuff tonight, so I can't really comment at this point on how well it works or anything. What I can say is that the lotion feels really emollient and moisturizing, and I adore the sweet scent. Again, check out the post where I found this recipe (the author is hilarious by the way) and let me know if you make any of this as well. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend everybody!
