My daughter and I, actually my sister and mom, too, have really dry skin. So when I saw this and how much less it would cost ounce per ounce, I had to make some. The blog entry below is what I worked from. Sadly, I have no memory, well, almost none. I remembered the ingredients but not the amounts of each. I didn’t want to make a huge batch in case I didn’t like it, so I used what I thought would be half of each ingredient. The petroleum jelly didn’t give ounces, just says “small jar” but compared to the Vitamin E creams in the picture, I thought what I used would be OK. And it is, as far as effectiveness goes. This truly is the best cream ever. Definitely too thick to be a lotion, or at least mine is. I could get gross and tell you how bad the skin on my feet was, but I’ll spare details. Suffice it to say that when the bottoms of my feet needed attention, it was like I was walking on a beach with a lot of small shards of shell sticking up. But it was dead skin I had to remove. YUK!!! My hands haven’t felt this nice in forever. My legs no longer look like snake skin with hair. Thank you. Katie!
