Maybe I did something wrong. This recipe was the first time I made a body butter or lotion of any kind, and from the description I thought it might absorb nicely because I normally have very dry skin. However, this body butter just sort of sits on my skin like a layer of grease. It won't sink in. I thought the Dry Flo was meant to help with that, but it just gave the oils a strange powdery "cornstarch" stick-ness. It's sticky, powdery, and greasy all at the same time. There doesn't seem to be any "glide" to it - just powder and oil. It almost feels like store-bought deodorant. :(
It was super easy to make, and I really WANT to like this body butter because everything else from BB has been AWESOME!
I'd love to know if there's any way I can fix it or salvage it? Turn it into a lotion? I guess I'm looking for something in between a butter and a lotion? Anyway, any advice you can offer is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Kim! I'm sorry to hear this body butter kit is giving you some trouble. We have always found this recipe to create an awesome, well absorbing body butter. I will be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot why the texture is not correct.
