For the love of baby oil

For skin as soft as a baby's bottom. 

As someone who has a darker skin complexion, dry skin is much more noticeable if you suffer badly from it. And sadly I do. Over the years I have tried many lotions and potions all which are either too greasy or need constant reapplication and its honestly cost me a fortune!

And then I discovered the skin miracle that is Johnsons Baby Oil. My nan mentioned using it a while back, but I just dismissed it thinking that it was too greasy and sticky but after everything else had failed me, I had nothing left to lose. I've not looked back since. 

I apply it after I've showered whilst my skin is still wet/damp so it absorbs better and seals into my skin. The tiniest drop goes such a long way that instead of feeling greasy, my skin feels soft and moisturised - like a baby's bottom! It also lasts all day so I don't need to carry moisturiser around with me in my bag. 

Whats even more amazing is the price. It's around £3 for a 300ml bottle which genuinely lasts forever (I've had my bottle for around 4months now, use it every day and its only just half way).

Another amazing use for it on my hair. I have naturally coarse, frizzy hair that isn't helped by the fact I dye it regularly. 
Instead of purchasing expensive 'hair taming' products, every week, I just apply baby oil on dry hair, leave it overnight and then wash it out properly in the morning with shampoo and conditioner.

Super soft skin and hair for barely any cost whatsoever!

Do you have any amazing beauty secrets? Let me know below!
