Homemade Homemaking: My Buttered Life Review and GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to this month’s edition of Homemade Homemaking! This month, I am reviewing and hosting a GIVEAWAY for My Buttered Life, an e-book that gives FIVE make-it-yourself recipes for body care products.

Do you ever find yourself struggling to decipher all the chemicals and other ingredients in most body care products?

I do. 

Especially since having children, I’ve wanted to simplify what I put on my family’s skin. After all, our skin is our biggest organ, and it absorbs EVERYTHING.

But finding natural alternatives to additive-laden body care products can be frustrating. Often, they are either too expensive or hard to come by. 

Renee Harris of MadeOn Skin Care Products and author of My Buttered Life has created some solutions.

Although Renee makes and sells her own skin care products, in her e-book, she actually gives her readers step-by-step instructions on how to create their own!

For only $5.00, the book gives 5 recipes that each only require 5 ingredients! The recipes are for:

  • a foot conditioning bar
  • a full body conditioner
  • bug repellent
  • sunscreen, and
  • a tan enhancer

The products are all made with simple and natural ingredients, such as shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax and essential oils.

In My Buttered Life, Renee goes on to include tips for storage, where to buy the ingredients at a good price and even instructional videos for visual learners. 

Worried it might somehow cost more to make your own products? Have no fear. Renee gives a breakdown on the cost of each product and includes a FAQ section as well. 

For $5.00, you can buy My Buttered Life here. If you purchase a lotion and lip balm do-it-yourself kit from Renee’s website, she offers the book for FREE. 

Renee has graciously offered one Humbled Homemaker reader a FREE COPY of My Buttered Life
