I don't buy body lotion, but I'll admit that it has its uses, especially when I've been in and out of the sea all summer. I've finished my supplies from Christmas 2018 in June and I decided I wanted to look for a more eco-friendly alternative. Two things I always have in the house are … Continue reading Whipped Coconut Oil Body Lotion
What fresh hell is this? Surely this is taking the whole eco-friendly thing too far? That's what my friends think anyway. I love it. I am a convert. Goodbye conditioner.
