My Two-Dollar beauty secret


Cocoa butter

Moisturizers can be expensive.   After riding my bike out in the sun for weeks I noticed that my neck was getting way too much sun and looked much darker than my face and body.  So I started wearing more sunblock and a scarf on my neck.  But I also wanted to undo some of the darkness.  I bought a roll of 100% pure cocoa butter to rub on my neck.  It moisturized and I noticed a difference immediately.

Then I started to put some under my eyes where I had a dry patch but not dark circles, upper cheeks really.  Then I noticed it started looking better and the makeup was hiding my dark areas where it did not really hide it before.  I have spent a fortune trying to find the right moisturizers.  And without even trying happened to try cocoa butter, the one in the tube you roll on, and I am amazed at the results.
