DIY: Homemade Cold Cream

Am I the only one with a fond memory of Pond’s Cold Cream? I just remember slathering it on after a sunburn, not necessarily the approved use, but still, the memory of the coolness lingers with me today. So when Jillee of One Good Thing posted her homemade cold cream recipe I was hooked. And you will be too…get the details here.

    I make my own cold cream also but I don’t use mineral oil. Instead I use a mixture of coconut oil and vegetable oil. I don’t use much water since I usually rub in some water after I put the cream on my face. I don’t use borax either. What would be the reason for the borax? Also, my cold cream isn’t nearly as creamy as Ponds but it works just as well for me. Thanks
