Can I thin out my lotion if it came out too thick.
Also what can I do to make it less oily feeling?

Adding more water will make it thinner and can also help with that oily feeling. Typical lotion recipes are 70-80% water, so you can add up to 80%.

It also helps to add lightweight oils that absorb quickly into the skin and feel less greasy. Argan and avocado oil are good options.

While we don’t have an exact recipe for a BBW body lotion, you can check out lotion recipes here:
