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.

Ingredients

  • 13 oz
    pure petroleum jelly (vaseline)
  • 16 oz
    baby lotion (not oil)*
  • 16 oz
    vitamin e cream (not lotion)
  • THE TEXTURE WILL BE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN COOL WHIP, MARGARINE OR WHIPPED BUTTER

How to Make Dry Skin Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
