Recently, I am cutting down on my cost with daily stuff I use such as bath soaps, facial washes, and lotions for the body. I really dislike Walmart… and it seems that either I go to Walmart to get the cheaper products (lotions, moisturizer) or pay more and go to my favorite Target (oooooooo I love Target!!) or CVS.
Anyway, I have been reading, studying, and researching when it comes to body lotions. I noted in the winter months, my cost of lotions, creams, etc increases. Not that I really use more, it’s just that I switch to creams (thicker) and in general the cost increase during winter time. (The law of Supply and Demand)
So I have/am testing the cost of natural stuff. Since I currently use Shea butter, coconut and EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) on my hair, why not use these on my skin.
So here is what I am doing
I currently am using Coconut on my upper body, and EVOO on my lower to see which one I like. I am also using the mixture of the two on my hands since my hands are always in need (I wash a lot because I go to the bathroom a lot!)
I even found everything online somethings you can order if you don’t want to go to the store.
Overall Products with Cost
Virgin Coconut Oil- 3.99 (Bought this with my image consultant at the indian store but any would do)
So this is what I am doing. I am reusing some old bottles from various other products. I have used Carol’s Daughter bottle for my two oil mixes and at night. I will put on the shea butter with a dab of Coconut oil together. If this works right, I will put them in an used coconut butter container and just keep that in the car. (Save the environment! Reuse those bottles!!) Look for a update to this post within the next coming weeks!
