Bea's Story

This is a wonderful cream for dry skin and only 3 ingredients! According to my friend, Trine, which gave me the recipe, it was created by a doctor & nurse who recommended using the FAMILY DOLLAR store brand products.

Everyone doesn't have access to a Family Dollar store. So, in my opinion, as long as you use the exact amounts listed and the 3 ingredients listed, it should be fine.


13 oz
pure petroleum jelly (vaseline)
16 oz
baby lotion (not oil)*
16 oz
vitamin e cream (not lotion)

Directions Step-By-Step

Using your hands (some people use a mixer), combine all products in large container (such as a plastic foot tub) until smooth & vaseline is not lumpy. (Some people put the vaseline in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up). After you squeeze out the baby lotion, cut the bottle in half so you can use every little bit. Store in covered containers.
STORAGE: What I do is clean out the vitamin e and vaseline containers & store cream in those. But you'll need more than those 2 containers. You can actually use margarine or cool whip containers. You can also buy "wide-mouth" plastic squeeze bottles at Walmart. Or you can buy cute glass containers w/lids from the Dollar store. Wide-mouth containers work best.
NOTE: This cream has made a huge difference in my skin. I've been using it for several years now and I won't use any other kind. I have used every brand on the market but this is "the best" for my skin. I even use it under my arms.

*FYI: I noticed at the Family Dollar back in Jan 2013 that the baby lotion is now 15 oz. The cream still turns out great.

I made the cream and I have to say that it is helping the palms of my hands that were dry and cracked & peeling get much better! It was inexpensive too! I only made half the recipe though. It's a lot too though! I have most in a large container I got at the dollar store and I kept the empty containers from the Vitamin E cream to have on my nightstand or take to work. My palms are almost all cleared up!

Thank you!!

Thank you Jan. I don't seem to be sensitive to lotions, just soap. The only lotion that has seemed to help my palms or nape of my neck (probably from shampoo or hair color) is bath & body works wild honeysuckle with vitamin e & shea butter. But it is $10 for an 8oz bottle! So I'm going to try this and hope it helps!

Mary I think you will love this cream! I've been using it for a few years now and just can't live without it! If you are sensitive to lotions, you might see if you can find an unscented baby lotion to use in it. Or if you really like scents, I have made it with Bath and Body body cream (in the tube) and just used 2 tubes of my favorite scent in place of the baby lotion called for in the recipe. It comes out beautifully and gives me more options for scents in the cream that I love! Enjoy!
