    I do. I use a small jar of vaseline, a pink bottle of baby lotion and 2 jars of vitamin A cream from Wal-mart. Use a mixer and really beat it good. It makes 6 jars of cream for allover body use. I love it. Put your beaters and bowl into the dishwasher after because it needs the hot water to clean beaters and bowl really good.

    I make this and it is terrific asnywhere on the body. Really cheap to put together and reap a large amount for the money. My SIL first introduced it to me. Love it, love it, love it some more.

    I can't wait to try this. I use the gelled baby oil from WalMart to remove eye makeup. Put a little on a cotton ball and rub gently. Make your eyes and surrounding eye area very moist. I then wash my face and apply some night cream. I used to sell Avon and have lots of product leftover. When that is gone I will make this cream. Thanks

    I used Dollar General's Baby Lotion with Shea and Cocoa Butter the last time I made it. I prefer that smell over the baby smell. DG also sells two 4 oz jars of Vit. E cream together. I love this stuff and put it on my feet/legs every morning after showering. Especially good to use in the winter time.

    Thanks. I will get to the ingredients soon and give it a try. Have you all tried the home-made laundry soap? Just made my second batch and is soooo cheap and works well. There is plenty to share.

    This is my recipe too and it is great! Makes a lot! Inexpensive and is great for the skin and hands. Smells good too if you use the scented baby lotion. Although they do sell unscented baby lotion.
