I work in an office with 5 doctors and as you know, doctors are always washing their hands which makes them dry. We make this lotion for them and they LOVE IT!! **UPDATE 3/31/09: I use 4 oz. of Vaseline petroleum jelly, it would not let me enter it on the ingredients part and for the Vitamin E, you can use lotion or cream, whatever you like or can find. I also tried the NEW cucumber melon baby lotion....AWESOME!!, husband and son liked it but I still like the regular pink the best. I ONLY use J&J baby lotion because it seems to work the best. Thanks to everyone who has given me reviews....
- 2 (9 ounce) bottlesof baby lotion
- 2 (8 ounce) jarsof vitamin e lotion
- vaseline petroleum jelly
- Pour everything into a large bowl and mix with electric mixer until smooth. Pour into lotion pump bottles.
- I guess you could add essential oils if the "baby smell" is not to your liking.
Ooohhh laaa laaa! I used all the lotion like the recipe calls for, but added a 2 ounce bottle of Vitamin E Oil to the mix. I also used 4 oz. of the whipped petroleum jelly that comes in a tube. I did put the petroleum jelly in the microwave for just a few seconds to soften it up to help with mixing. This stuff is fantastic! My sister has very dry skin in the winter and normally it will take 4 to 5 applications of Eucerin before she sees an improvement. She was at my house the day I mixed this up and she took some with her. Next morning she called me to report that with just one application her dry skin was almost gone. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!!
Mine turned out so fluffy! I used 1 15-oz. bottle of store brand baby lotion, 2 jars of vitamin e cream and a 3.75 oz. container of vaseline. I found a less messy way to mix this up. I lined a large margarine tub with a gallon size zip top freezer bag, put all the ingredients in the bag, zipped it while trying to get as much air out as possible, then worked it with my hands to mix it up. then just snip (very small snip) a corner and "pipe" the lotion into whatever type container you will be storing this in. Like another reviewer, I also microwaved the vaseline to soften, plus I put the baby lotion upside down in some very hot water to make it easier to get out of the bottle. Hope this helps!
This is wonderful and such a great value - especially if you buy your ingredients from the Dollar store. I use it every day fresh out of the shower and sometimes mix a little "smelly" lotion with it depending on my mood of the day!
