No better image than this one for the debut of the “Simply Smooth” recipe.
I have to admit, I was formerly a junkie for highly scented “brand name” bath and body products…..until I had a HUGE bout with some skin issues this last winter!!! I am not kidding, I could feel my skin burning by simply LOOKING towards the pricey stuff in my shower!!! ouch. It was BAD BAD BAD!!! I am already, by nature, highly sensitive to itchy, scratchy, confining, and restricting clothing!!! (blue jeans give me NIGHTMARES!!!) but enough about THAT quirkiness of mine. :) if I would have had this RECIPE last winter, I think alot of my skin woes would have not happened, or certainly have been so severe!!!! not to mention the FRUGALness of it. Costs a mere cents per usage!!!
….and I will NOT take full credit. I give a thumbs UP to my friend Christy that turned me onto it. Again, might not be NEW to everyone, but will to some, and also to those that have heard of it, but never tried it?? get your mixers out, soothe your skin and SAVE some money!!!
1 15 oz Vaseline (off brand will work FINE!!)
1 16 oz Vitamin E lotion. (Dollar General, or anywhere that carried “Fruit of the Earth” brand)
2 16 oz Baby Lotion. (again, off brands work great and there is a variety of scents and even NON scented)
Add everything into a GLASS or METAL bowl, and mix with an electric mixer, until all blended.
That is it. How SIMPLE??? this batch makes PLENTY, enough for you, as well as some to give as gifts. Christy often gives some to friends, and those sick or in the hospital. GREAT idea!!! new moms?? teachers??? and a gift I know I would be delighted to recieve!!
Be a little “green” with this gift and reuse the original 4 oz tubs that the Vitamin E comes in. Soak the label off, and add your own, like I did. It was the perfect size to give one to each of my sisters, and Machita now has TWO!!! after she initially used it, I am sure she is thankful to have another one!!!
I just know, you are gonna LOVE this stuff!!! I have tested it out thoroughly, first hand on VERY problematic skin and I doubt I will be using anything OTHER than this for a VERY long time…. if ever.
Feel good stories of complete strangers
