Todays Special: Pure and Simple

"Trusted for Years" is the ad slogan most remember when they think of Johnson's baby products. So logic says if you've trusted them for years enough to use their products on your baby, why not trust them enough to use their products on yourself? What you may find is a wonderful, inexpensive solution to your daily grooming routines that's not just child's play.


Johnson's Baby Shampoo- This gentle shampoo contains no soap or alcohol and is known for it's "no more tears" formula, which won't irritate a baby's eyes if it gets into them. It does, however, contain chemicals that will clean the hair and scalp effectively without stripping either. I have read reviews on this products for adults that say although it's surfactants will help to remove grease and cleanse the hair, the surfactants (wetting agents) in Johnson's baby shampoo formula are milder than ones you would find in drug store shampoos. Great for sensitive scalps; not great for oily hair. This product is gentle enough to be used every day, but best used daily by adults with short hair. This is a product designed for babies who don't have a lot of hair and users report it does not foam up enough to sufficiently cleanse longer hair. This shampoo leaves hair smooth, shiny and soft with a wholesome, clean and fresh smell.


It is also effective, when diluted with water, as a gentle make-up remover and a great make-up brush cleanser. Guys: Try this as a shaving cream for sensitive skins.



Johnson's Baby Lotion- This product is a staple in my beauty routine. A daily user of body moisturizers, I love the smell, texture and rich, effective ingredients in this moisturizer. It's fast-absorbing emollients leave skin with a soft and smooth, non-greasy feel. It's hypo-allergenic and allergy tested, and protects both babies and adults skin from nagging dryness with ease.

Can we talk about the scent? There is no product more pure and clean smelling than Johnson's baby lotion. Although it's nice to use other, higher priced fragrance body lotions, for every day moisturizing this rich formula gives the other alternatives a run for the money. At $ 3.50 for a 15 oz bottle, your minimal investment in a bottle should last you 2-3 months with every day use.

Great for stubborn dry hands and feet. Apply Johnson's Baby lotion liberally on hands and feet. Before rubbing lotion into skin completely, put on socks and or gloves. Remove socks and gloves after 15-20 minutes and you have just given yourself an inexpensive, at-home, "beauty wrap" that will be sure to improve the appearance of hands and feet.

Johnson's Baby Oil- This multi-use baby oil is a product I use much more for myself than I did with my own children. Besides millions of teens using it in the 70's as a sun-tan oil (oh, the horror!) adult women all over the world have been using this product for decades to combat stubborn dry patches. The pure mineral oil forms a soft, protective barrier on the skin which locks in moisture and protects against excessive moisture loss. Dermatologist and allergy tested, this versatile formula can be used in many ways.

As a gentle eye make-up remover, apply Johnson's Baby Oil to a cotton ball and gently rub eye area to remove make-up. It even works on water-proof mascaras, just make sure you cleanse the skin thoroughly after using, to remove the excess oil from the delicate area around the eye.

The best way to use Johnson's Baby Oil? Leave a bottle in your shower. Just as you are finished and about to get out of the shower, DONT! While the water is still running, apply baby oil all over your body, (much like you would a moisturizer), rinse off lightly, and step out of the shower and towel off. The baby oil will soak into the skin immediately and leave a silky protective moisture barrier for the rest of the day. You skin will be absolutely GLOWING!!

Pure and simple and inexpensive luxuries are the best way to describe this trifecta of beauty classics.

Go ahead and baby yourself for a change.

I baby myself all the time. Well, I should say I "Pamper" myself.

Pretty soon, I'll be ready for big boy pants.

I thought I was the only person on the face of the earth who used the lotion! I luuuurrve smelling like a baby's butt! All other perfumes and lotions are just too MUCH, I think. This is fresh and clean smelling. I even use Johnson's Baby Powder--TMI?

My mom used that stuff on me when I was a baby. Or rather, my Nanny did.

And my mother wonders why I used to think she was a robot...

You had me at "emollients".

And I had a girlfriend who enjoyed using baby oil for something or other. :-)

There are other uses for Johnson's Baby Oil that I will not elaborate on here other than to say that it is mentioned in an Adam Sandler tune.
