Frugal Tip Tuesday – making lotion last

I love really nice lotions, but it can get pretty expensive if you are slathering your entire body in it. I usually just buy the biggest pump of Vaseline lotion I can find, but it isn’t as luxurious and as nicely scented as other, more expensive body butters. My sister just bought me a gift pack of Body Shop products for my birthday, and it included coconut scented body butter (LOVE IT!). But it’s a small container, and I want it to last as long as possible, so here’s what I do: scoop out  half the amount you need from the body butter, and get the other half from the cheaper body lotion. Mix em together, and slather wherever you were planning on slathering. You get the scent from the body butter (YUM, coconut!), the fancy body butter will last longer, and it’s actually easier to apply, since body butter can sometimes be too thick.

Happy Tip Tuesday!
