I love lotions and creams. I have some for my hands, another few for my face, and an assortment for the body. And I enjoy and use each and every one of them.
I grew up using only Nivea (the classic one in the blue tin) on my face. That is pretty much what every man, woman and child uses in Chile. I had never bought or used any other brand until I was 26 years old when a friend introduced me to Clinique. There began my love affair with moisturizers and I branched out to other beauty products.
A few weeks ago I found an image of homemade moisturizer on Pinterest and jumped out of my seat with excitement. “I need to make this!” I said to Little M. He just glanced over and said “Okay mami”.
The recipe was posted on Boho Mama’s blog and I was surprised to see most of the ingredients were already in my kitchen cupboard and that it took less than 30 minutes to make. I have made this two times, the first time I added too much water and it was runny, the second batch was perfect and I use it on Little M’s dry skin every night.
