Bethenny Frankel uses this popular body oil for a money-saving beauty hack — and it's on sale for $6

Bethenny Frankel knows beauty, and she loves sharing info about her favorite products, many of which can be found at the local drugstore.

Speaking with People in 2022, Frankel revealed some of her best cost-cutting hacks. One that we can't stop thinking about involves Palmer's Coconut Hydrate Body Oil. Bethenny recommended mixing in a favorite fragrance to turn it into a custom-scented (and cost-saving) beauty staple. Right now, Palmer's is a mere $6 (that's 40% off) — so it's the perfect time to order a bottle or two and experiment with this clever trick.

Made with fair-trade certified-organic extra-virgin coconut oil — with an assist from Tahitian monoi oil — this treatment is well-loved for moisturizing and softening skin.

Why is this a good deal?

As Bethenny explains, "You're paying for the scent when it comes to those expensive body oils, so do it yourself and you'll save a ton." Indeed, popular scented body oils can cost $70 or more. Why spend so much when you can get the same effect for a tenth of the cost? "Just add a few spritzes of your favorite fragrance to your hands and mix with Palmer's," the Real Housewives star said. Use cologne, perfume or essential oils — just a touch of scent is all you need.

Think about it: You can customize your Palmer's with a different scent every time you use it, rather than dropping way more money on one scent. And a $6 bottle of Palmer's (on sale from $10) will last you quite a while.

Why do I need this?

Aside from Bethenny's fragrance hack, this Palmer's oil has plenty of skin-pampering properties, fans say. This blend, which includes Tahitian monoi oil, rejuvenates and replenishes the skin's moisture and radiance. It's also formulated to absorb into the skin without the greasy mess of some body oils. And, of course, it has a light, sweet coconut fragrance of its own. Apply it after showering for maximum hydration or anytime your skin needs a boost.

What reviewers say

Nearly 9,000 Amazon reviewers give Palmer's Coconut Hydrate Body Oil a five-star rating, with many shoppers raving about its "luxurious" feel.

"I love all Palmer's coconut products! But this is my absolute favorite!" said a happy customer. "I use it right out of the shower while still wet. It absorbs beautifully. Not oily, feels amazing! Keeps my skin moisturized all day! Please never discontinue this — I never wanna be without it."

Another shopper said: "For the last couple of years, the skin on my legs has been very dry. It was ashy, almost papery, and had developed ingrown hairs. Any lotion or cream I used was not being absorbed or helping in any significant way. I’ve used this oil a few times so far on my damp legs right out of the shower, and my legs are getting better each time. They already look and feel so much better."

"The oil itself is luxurious, absorbing beautifully into my skin and leaving it feeling incredibly soft and hydrated, without any greasy residue," reports a third fan. "The only drawback I've noticed is the pour cap, which tends to leak a bit, so I have to be careful when using it."

This versatile oil is formulated to moisturize skin for up to two days — not too shabby for $6.
