Confession: I have the world's driest skin. It's flaky, it peels, and it makes me incredibly self conscious. As a result, I tend to carry lotion with me EVERYWHERE.

In my purse: Check
In my car: Check
In my backpack: Check
One my side of the bed: Check

Winter has been known to cause my skin to dry out, so every year, between the months of October and March, I make an extra effort to incorporate lotion into my everyday beauty routine. I'm a firm believer that self-care begins with skin care, Even so, my dry skin gets extra dry during the winter. So I swapped out my go-to lotion and started using Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion, and oh what a difference it has made.


This stuff is like liquid gold. Seriously, if I could cook with it, I probably would (but please don't try it okay?) I can typically judge how my day will go based on my skin. If my skin is radiant and supple, the hills are likely to be alive with the sound of music and I'm loving life. If it's dry and itchy, I'll typically be irritable. Its amazing what a difference a bit of lotion can make in your life and self care routine.

I've been so in love with my Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion that I've even started using it in my own DIY moisturizing liquid hand soap recipe. It's incredibly simple to make, and if you're like me and have dry skin, it's a lifesaver.

Since I believe that sharing is caring, I'm going to share my ultra-secret, incredibly soothing homemade liquid soap recipe with you guys today. I promise, this recipe for homemade soap is no-fuss and well worth it.

Two 5 oz. bars of pure castile soap

Pour your soup and water into a small saucepan on medium heat and stir until dissolved. Add the Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion. Optional: Add essential oils of your choice to the mixture and continue stirring.

Once everything has been dissolved, remove your soapy mixture from the stove. Note: It will be incredibly "liquidy". Don't worry, it will begin to gel after a while.

Pour your soap into your containers and set aside for 24 hours.

The next day, your soap will have thickened and will be ready for use. The best part is, this hand soap works just as well on tiny hands, and doesn't contain all those harmful chemicals that can wreak havoc on your body.

With pure cocoa butter and Vaseline Jelly, this soap moisturizes and helps heal dry skin, reveal it's natural glow, and keep your hands clean all winter long. Because cocoa butter is known to help hydrate and lock moisture into your skin, washing your hands no longer means you're resigned to having dry hands all day.
