Life Love Beauty recently received an invitation to team up with Johnson’s for a one-month span in testing out a variety of their mild and gentle products for skincare. Since these products are formulated for babies, I can only imagine the safety and health benefits of using them as compared to my regular arsenal of lotions, body creams, shampoos, and other assorted skincare goodies. Johnson’s sent me a generous shipment of products to try and I am so excited to tell you about each and every one. This article is the first in the Johnson’s series on Life Love Beauty, featuring Johnson’s Baby Creamy Oil in both Cocoa & Shea Butter and Aloe Vera & Vitamin E.
After using these products only a short while, I am already noticing baby soft skin that is so different from my skin when using a lot of the “normal” lotions and skin creams. My palms remind me of the silky soles of babies’ feet and my dry elbows have smoothed out remarkably. Even hours later, the roughness and dryness are still gone! This becomes especially important this time of year in the Northeast, as our nights are getting longer, the weather is getting colder, and soon winter will be knocking at our doors. I’m so glad my skin has a head start on the seasonal changes!
I think my (other) favorite part of these products (besides the smooth and incredibly soft skin) is the amazing scent each product offers. Johnson’s Baby Creamy Oil in Aloe Vera & Vitamin E happened to be the first product I tried. I adore the soft and clean fragrance, which somewhat reminds me of a cucumber melon type scent, even though it may just be my imagination due to the pleasant green bottle. I really enjoy this light and delicate fragrance that is subtle enough for anytime use and so nice if you want to massage a dab onto your little one’s skin.
I tried Johnson’s Baby Creamy Oil in Cocoa & Shea Butter next, and let me tell you – it smells as good as a chocolaty dessert that you might be dreaming of as you begin to hydrate your skin with this winning formula. The light tan colored container makes it easy to associate the pleasant, lightly chocolate fragrance with the bottle. This scent also reminds me of sun-kissed days at the beach, wearing a delightful sunscreen hinting at coconut or cocoa butter.
Both products are mild and gentle on your skin, generously sized at 8 ounces, and honest-to-goodness non-greasy formulas that are just as good for you as they are for baby. Find them at your favorite drugstores and mass market retailers, and stay tuned for our next feature on additional fabulous skincare products from Johnson’s!
