Good Evening girls,
It's freezing right now, and sitting at home and doing nothing is not my cup of tea. So I thought why not share with you all my Mom's secret recipe to a soft and supple skin all through the harsh winters. Her skin never tends to get dry like mine does. Anyways coming back to the cream, my Mom and now me too applies it all over hands, feet/legs and the entire body to be precise. I dare not use it on my face but Mom says its a great cleanser as well. After using it for a couple of weeks now, I totally agree with her. Its a great hand cream cum foot cream cum body cream for the ones with dry skin like mine. Now the recipe follows:

Pond's Cold Cream- 2 Tbspn
Almond Oil- 3 Tspn
Glycerin- 1 1/2 Tspn
Rose water- 1 Tspn or less
Essential Oil- 1-2 drops (I use lavender oil)
Empty Tub to store the cream

Take Pond's Cold Cream and put it in the tub, add the glycerin and mix well. Now add the almond oil little by little and keep mixing. Finally add the rose water and essential oil and stir till you get your cream mixed well. Its ready to use.

You can also add coconut oil if you like to instead of almond oil. This cream takes good care of dry skin specially hands, feet, arms & legs. It also improves the condition of the cuticles with prolonged use. After you prepare this cream once, you can adjust the quantity of the ingredients to suit your needs. And also I would like to state that I never used it on my face to massage or to clean off makeup, so I would not be able to tell you anything regarding that. I use it at night before hitting the bed all over my body and hands and feet.

Hope you enjoy reading and preparing the recipe. Do leave behind your precious comments. Thank you so much for reading this post and have a great day ahead :)

Sounds easy to prepare and would give amazing results due to the presence of glycerin :)

Sounds nice and easy to make and use! By the way I am loving the Parachute advansed body lotion that you had reviewed earlier! Really works great as a moisturizer for my skin!
