This body whip is hugely nourishing to your skin, it is full of fatty acids and antioxidants from the coconut oil and vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E from the avocado oil – just to say the least! It is heaven as an all-over body moisturiser to tackle dry skin.

Step Three: After 30 minutes, It should be a goo like semi-fluid (not liquid but not quite solid) which is what you want, as it is the best texture to whisk to achieve a butter whip. It may take longer then 30 minutes in the refrigerator to achieve semi-fluid, But keep an eye on it so it does not go solid as the whisk may not stir through.

As this moisturiser base is oil, when you rub into your skin, the texture breaks down and leaves an amazing oil layer. Your skin will absorb all the nourishing nutrients of the oils – with the vanilla aroma linger, it is truly beautiful.

    I came across this post a couple of days ago. I’ve been looking to go the natural way with the products I apply on my body. I tried this recipe and it turned out amazing. I’ve always loved coconut oil as a moisturizer, so I had to try this. Leaves my skin feeling baby soft. I apply it right before bed.
