I do really like using baby bath and body care products myself, as my skin is very sensitive and I do find that those cosmetics that have been specifically produced for children can be very beneficial to my hyper-sensitive skin, mainly because they are generally very mild and gentle on the skin. This review will outline my experiences of trying out a recent purchase, namely the "Johnson's Baby Bath."
The Johnson's Baby Bath is available from all good chemists and supermarkets, and I bought mine in a local branch of Tesco. There are a few sizes of bottle available, so you can chose the one which suits your needs best. I purchased the smallest size available on this occasion, which is 300ml, and this cost me in the region of £1.15 at the time, which I believe was a promotional 'offer' and I thought this was a reasonable, but not fantastic, value for money price.
The packaging is in keeping with the Johnson's 'baby care' range overall, comprising of a flat, sturdy bottle with a rather oblong shape. In this case, the bottle is coloured in an attractive blue shade, and the plastic cap on top of the bottle is coloured in blue too. To dispense the liquid from my bottle, I simply need to lift the 'flip up' cap on top of the bottle, which reveals a small hole. I can dispense the liquid through this hole quite easily, even though I suffer with limited strength in my hands as a result of various health complaints. My own bottle doesn't have a 'pump' dispenser as shown in the Dooyoo page here, and I do think this design feature is something that is exclusive this product's larger-sized bottles.
The liquid itself is a blue colour, and has a pleasant consistency that allows it to pour from the bottle easily, without dripping and spilling all over the place. I do find that only a small amount - a good-sized 'blob' - is really enough for my own requirements, as this allows a nice helping of soft bubbles to mix into the bathwater. True, if I added some more of the Johnson's liquid I could probably entice some more bubbles to disperse into the water, but I can't say I find this to be necessary. This means that the bottle is lasting quite well, allowing for the slightly higher-than-average purchase price to feel justified.
The product's scent is its most redeeming feature... it is really lovely, and I find the fragrant cloud that escapes from the bathtub into the bathroom feels rather relaxing and soothing as I soak in the tub. With a soft, 'powder-like' quality, the aroma feels soft and subtle, with only the slightest hint of sweetness within it, so it never takes on a 'sickly' edge in the way that some other baby bath products do; quite the opposite is true when using the Johnson's Baby Bath liquid, and I find that its scent is really much more subtle and understated than many similar rival products that I have bought before.
Thanks to the scent's quietly soothing aroma, I like to use the product in the bathtub when having a relaxing soak in the evening, as I feel the scent is perfectly suited to this time of day; I am left feeling chilled-out and relaxed, and the Baby Bath leaves me feeling rather ready for bedtime after soothing the stresses of the day away. It strikes me too that the product would be absolutely ideal to incorporate into a child's nightly bath time routine as there is nothing remotely invigorating or revitalising about the product, and in fact a sleepy 'ready-for-bed' feeling is induced instead.
I like how a mere trace of the scent is left lingering on the skin after bath time; this doesn't feel invasive or over-bearing, and I am not left feeling 'swamped' by a heady fragrance. Instead, a quiet whisper of the scent is detectable, and this too adds to the product's calming, understated approach to bath time.
As you would expect with any bath care product formulated for children and babies, the Johnson's Baby Bath has caused nothing in the way of aggravation or irritation to my sensitive skin. The annoying patches of dryness and eczema on my arms have remained completely 'untouched' by the product and I have found that soaking in the liquid has not caused any acceleration to the dryness that affects my skin. In actual fact I have found that my skin feels rather soft when the product has been used at bath time, and certainly the familiar 'tightness' that is often present in the skin after using other products is nowhere to be found after the use of the Johnson's Baby Bath. Based on these results, I have no hesitation in recommending the product for children and babies, in addition to those consumers who, like me, suffer with sensitive skin issues.
Taking everything into account, I do really rate this particular Baby Bath liquid, and I will certainly buy it again. It feels wonderfully gentle and kind to my sensitive skin, and the delicate fragrance feels soothing and subdued whilst the liquid cleanses the skin gently. I have only positive remarks to note within this review, and I do therefore think that top marks in the product rating score are appropriate on this occasion.
I love Johnson's brand of baby products and have bought a lot of them over the years. More so this year because my daughter gave birth to her 3rd child so I had been stocking her supplies so she had a lot of products to keep her going for a while. I bought this baby lotion for using at my home and recently my new born baby granddaughter had her first bath at my home and I am pleased I had bought a bottle of this lotion.
The lotion comes inside a plastic bottle which has the name clearly on the front and so can be easily spotted on a shelf. It has a flip back lid and it has a rich consistency which has a smooth, soft texture to it and flows well from the bottle without dripping from it.
It has a nice subtle fragrance which smells like a new born baby and the general smell from the Johnson's brand. The scent is a little milder than some of the other products but still a pleasant aroma. Not overpowering and just a nice mild scent. The scent is a fresh smell too.
It is very easy to use by just pouring a small amount into the bath water, my daughter brought one of those plastic baby baths with her to my home so I could bath her without having to bath her in our bath and smaller in size so my granddaughter felt comfortable bathing in another home and not being in her own home which she has been used to in the past few weeks.
A little goes a long way with this product and it creates lots of bubbles and lather in the water and bubbles which are gentle and soft. It cleans the skin really well and because it is a nice mild, gentle liquid it is gentle enough for a new born baby. My granddaughter is just 3 weeks old and this product is a good enough and perfect for her age. She found the fragrance relaxing and she was happy enough to just lay in the water and make noises. Using too much in a baby bath just isn't necessary and a complete waste of the liquid and also using too much would create far too many bubbles for a new born baby to bath in the water and may distract them or maybe upset them if the bubbles float near to their little faces. The bubbles and foam feel super soft on the hands and they are very easy to rinse from the bath after bathing.
I have also bathed my 2 other grandchildren using this product and found it works well for removing dirt from their skins without having to rub it away. This product just simply dissolves dirt with little effort and just from soaking and playing in the bath with their bath toys.
Is a fabulous product for a baby's delicate skin and an older child's skin too. None of my grandchildren have had any rashes or irritations on their skin since using this product so all good.
I have even had a soak in the bath using this product too and found it to be a really nice one for my sensitive skin. It hasn't left my skin feeling any drier than normal and also I haven't suffered any rashes or irritations. It hasn't left my grandchildren's skin dry and just left it feeling nice and soft, although I do always like to use a baby lotion on their skins after bathtime.
For a 500ml bottle it cost just £1.50 and I think it is well worth this price. It is so affordable for any budget in my opinion and well worth the money. The quality is super too.
I will continue to buy this one and I highly recommend it to anyone who has a baby or young children or grandchildren. I think it is more than suitable for adults to use at bath time and a nice one to use if you suffer with sensitive skin no matter what age you are.
I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
Before my baby was born I bought a lot of Johnson's products as they were the ones that I had heard of so thought they would be most reliable. When Hope was born the midwife recommended we use a different bath product to this one and so we have only just got round to using this one now that she is 20 months old!
Johnson's are very well known for making baby products and I have always liked their baby wipes and found them to work well and be very gentle on Hope's skin. It was only recently that I came across this unopened bottle of bubble bath and decided to use it.
It comes in a pale blue bottle with a lid that you flip up. This is a little stiff to do at first or if you have soapy or wet hands but usually I find with the help of a dry towel I can open it without any problems and closing it is easy. I like it being a flip cap as it means you can close it using just one hand and within a second unlike with screw caps. It is definitely well designed in with babies in mind knowing that you need both hands to bath your baby!
It smells like newborn babies! It has that strong new born baby smell which is associated with Johnson's products. It's not really a particular smell that I can describe in terms of what flavours are in it but it is a nice one, that does make you think about little babies, it's a comforting smell that's for sure!
You can use it in the bath as a bubble bath and also as a shampoo too. You don't need to use much at all, just a few drops and it soon lathers up and creates lots of bubbles! It is moisturising too so you can do two jobs at once- clean your baby and moisturise! Babies need lots of moisture in their skin, it's very easy for their skin to become dry especailly behind their knees and at their ankles and so having a moisturising bath is really important.
I find that after a bath Hope does feel as though her skin is softer but there is no long lasting effect on this. Her skin still goes dry very quickly especially on her ankles and parts of her back and so I don't think that this product works as well as it could do which is a shame as I do usually really like Johnson's things. I do like the smell of it and the amount of bubbles it creates without needing to use much of the product. It certainly lasts a long while and after I've washed Hope's hair it has a lovely shine to it which can only be down to this!
So in my opinion it smells nice, it does make your skin feel softer in the short term and it washes hair well, it just isn't that effective in the long term in terms of moisturising.
You can buy this from your local super market and chemist it is widely available so you shouldn't have any problems getting hold of it!
I have been using the Johnson's range on my baby since he was 3 weeks old and it has now become part of his everyday routine...his bedtime routine in particular. One of my favourite products is the Baby Bath. As soon as i open the bottle you get a lovely baby smell wafting towards you and I can't get enough of it.
The Baby Bath some in a baby blue bottle in a variety of sizes. My last couple of purchases have been the 200 ml bottles which cost around £1 from most supermarkets. I like this size as it fits in the bathroom cabinet easily and lasts a decent amount of time as it is only used every other night in a little baby bath. Generally this 200 ml bottle will last around 20 bathtimes. The packaging is a nice simply strong plastic bottle that fits the function. It has no fancy design with a simple blue lid that clips closed when not in use and no fancy artistry on the bottle. I love its simplicity because lets face it, baby's not going to care what the bottle looks like and neither do I!
I pick Johnson's products as the are so well known and trusted for baby products and little Riley seems to love them as much as me. The Baby Bath is pH balanced so very gentle. My baby has sensitive skin and all the Johnson's products seem to only help the skin and never cause a rash of dryness on him. The baby bath has the patented 'No More Tears' formula as well so I have no fear of it irritating his eyes as he splashes about in the bath.
The baby bath is a gentle but cleansing and freshens up our little one, not that babies so young get dirty but after hours in nappies and dribbles of milk throughout the day its nice to freshen them up and keep them clean.
To use the Baby Bath you are instructed to simply add to running water, swirl by hand to create some bubbles of pop on a sponge/flannel and gentle lather and rinse. It produces a nice amount of fluffy bubbles that will entertain your little one, but doesn't produce masses and masses which would be a pain with a baby kicking about. It mixes with water well and doesn't end up just coating the bottom of the bath like some. I also like the fact that you can either just use it as a bubble bath for baby and pop it on a wash cloth and lather up to wash baby as well.
I just love the Johnson's Baby Bath and have no negative points to add. I have even recently popped it into my bath and loved being surrounded by that baby smell and it was just as soft and moisturising on my skin as it was on little ones.
I love using Johnson's baby product on my own baby's and one of our favourites for the bath is Johnson's Baby Bath. I have always used Johnsons products ever since my kids were born, I love their baby oil and shampoo and some of the different lotions you can get and this is a nice bath staple that we have been using on and off since they were born basically.
Johnson's Baby Bath is described as the original No More Tears baby bath which is as gentle to the eyes as pure water and is mild enough to clean a newborns baby's skin without drying it. I really like to add something to a bath whenever I bath my kids because if they refuse to use soap, which sometimes they do, I know that they have at least been getting a bit clean and smelling fresh by sitting in the bath water itself. In fact, when they were first born I didn't use soap on their newborn skin and just relied on this baby bath to cleanse their skin and it worked really well as they always came out smelling really fresh.
What I like about this bath product is this is all you really need in the bath, no need for lots of other bottles of soap/shampoo etc when it comes to cleaning the kids. I firstly use some when I am running the bath and pour some under the tap as the tap is running. The bottle is squeezy with a flip cap lid so its easy to squeeze some out under the tap. The liquid is in the form of a gel and has a slight blue coloured tinge to it. It is quite liquidy though and so when you add it to the bath under running water it will bubble up which is nice. Then I will use this product as a wash just like liquid soap so I will use it to clean my little boy and girl by squeezing a little bit into my hand and rubbing it all over their bodies. Then to finish off I use it as a shampoo too when I wash my little boys hair. I don't use it on my girl as she has a medicated shampoo but its great for my little boy. This wash also contains the Johnson's no more tears formula so even if he does get some in his eyes it doesn't sting. Afterwards he has really soft clean hair and looks gorgeous! This is actually a soap free product so I think that's why its so nice and gentle and it is also pH neutral so this is probably why if I do get it in my little boy's eyes he doesn't mind.
I also love adding this to my own bath and keeps my own skin nice and soft too. This bottle of baby bath comes in a light blue bottle so you can tell it apart from the other Johnson's products available. It has a nice fresh clean smell to it but apart from that doesn't really have any other perfume which I like as I love the smell of babies own smell. A 500ml bottle costs just £2.90 which I think is a good price for a good quality product.
From the smell to the foam it makes, Johnson's has to be the best shower gel for infants as well as for grownups. Till this day, despite having a daughter, I use this shower gel sometimes and it leaves me feeling clean and fresh. A little bit on the loofah goes a long way, meaning despite its average price, it's a shower gel that lasts a good few weeks. I used it as a child and have been hooked ever since. It's really friendly to infant skin which is always a must for children's delicate skin and is the only thing I recommend for children. I dare try other brands for children!
If I could change anything about this shampoo, it would definitely be the price tag. I just wish it would be a little cheaper. But over all I cannot complain because I do like switching up my shower gels just to try different things, and most of them are a lot dearer than Johnson's. It's something I will always have in my bathroom draw no matter how old I or my daughter get. Has a lovely clean smell, not like any other shower gel, it's not citrusy, nor is it flowery, it's just a very clean scent which has a relaxing, calming effect. For children, there can't be anything more gentle!
I bought a bottle of the Johnson baby bath (100ml) before I went traveling. I did not use this product on a constant basis but I did buy this product from time to time, when they were on sale or when I went traveling.
As mentioned above, the one I bought was a 100ml one which was suitable for traveling. It is small enough to be carried in a luggage and yet large enough to lastnfor the whole trip. It comes in a plastic bottle with a flip open lid. It is in the baby blue color and the bath gel itself is also in light bluish-green color. Bigger sizes are also available, which are also contained in the baby blue plastic containers.
The product is easy to apply. All you need to do is squeeze some gel into your hand and rub it into a rich lather and then apply it to the body. It is easy to create a rich lather. (As pointed out by the other dooyooers, I have been using it the wrong way! I should be pouring this under running water instead of rubbing them in my hands.... thanks for pointing that out!)
The bath gel Also has a good gentle smell. The smell is not very strong and is very comforting. It just gives you the baby feel when you are using the product. The smooth texture further enhances its baby feel.
I always like to use the baby
One products because they are very gentle. This product is no exception. It is very gentle and does not cause any irritation to my skin. My skin also does not feel dry or tight after the shower. While it was gentle, I still found my skin fully cleaned afterwards.
Overall, it is a classic product and something that I will purchase again in the future.
I have been buying the Johnson's brand for many years since my own children where babies. I now buy them for my grandchildren because they are good products. I have lots of grandchildren and so like to make sure I have products in my home for their visits and for when some of them sleep ove.
This baby bath product is housed in a blue plastic bottle. It has a flip top and is easy to squeeze the liquid from the bottle. The name is on the front nice and clear and can be seen on the shelves.
It is a soft liquid and a blue colour. It is a fairly thick liquid and doesn't run down the bottle and make a mess of it. It is a soft liquid and really smooth. It only has a slight smell to it, one that just has a fresh kind of smell and one that resembles baby powder but not quite as strong. I just give 2 pumps under running water into the bath and it produces lots of bubbles. These bubbles last the whole time I bath my grandchildren. It soaps well too on the body. It gives a good lather and is gentle on the skin. The smell remains in the water for the whole time too and the fragrance doesn't fade like some other products.
It is a nice mild product that is very kind to my grandchildren's skin. It doesn't irritate or leave their skin with any rashes. It just leaves it feeling soft as it should feel. It does clean their skin and cleans all of their bodies really well indeed.
After drying it doesn't leave the skin dry. It just leaves it feeling soft and really smooth. Only a couple of pumps is needed to clean the skin. So the bottle does last a long time. The bottle I bought is 300ml and it costs around £2.30, a good price for this well known brand. It is well worth the price and is a good quality and value product.
Their skin smells really nice after bathing in this product. Because it is so mild it can be used for new born babies. Older children can use it too and it is one that I would say is suitable for all the family to use if they have sensitive skin. My skin is just normal and I haven't used it but some of my older grandchildren have used it in their bath water. One of them is almost a teenager and she has used this a few times bathing at my house. She finds it leaves her skin feeling soft too in the same way as a baby's skin.
I like this baby bath product. It is suitable for my grandchildren and cleans the skin well and leaves their skin in a good condition.
I rate it 5 stars.
---Why I Bought This---
Well firstly I have no baby in the hoUse any more but was ordering Tesco Baby Bath as it is curRently selling for 11p a bottle. As they had run out I was 'price matched' with bottles of Johnson's Baby Bath instead.
Johnsons is an old long established brand from the 1880s.
Pale blue smooth and curved bottle of 500 mls and with a darker blue flip top lid.
The front label is a teardrop shape and with 'no more tears' written on it.
Marketed as 'everyday gentle cleansing'.
The back label states that it has a 'babyfresh' smell, is as mild as water to baby's eyes and is PH balanced.
'Johnson's - trusted by mums for over 100 years'.
Soap and araben free. The baby bath is made in Italy.
The product hs a shelf life of twelve months once opened and is thick and a bright blue transparent liquid.
This is the basic baby bath liquid but Johnson's now manuFacture a wide variety of different bath products as well as the more traditional baby lotion and baby powder.
£2.76 for 500 mls - as compared to 11p for Tesco Eveyday brand.
This is the well-known baby bath that probably everyone has used at one time or another, and I would use i for my boys too.
The liquid is thick, clear and bright blue. Only a little is needed to creat some bubbles, but although it contains perfume I did not find hardly any smell with it - baby or otherwise.
There has been some controversy lately over Johnsons products and there is a response on theri website.
Personally I think the less artificial products you use on a baby the better, and baby's do not need very much in the way of cleaning products in the bath water - a tiny amount will do.
I have not delved into the controversy about the ingredients but as this has been a production sale for many years I would think it is reasonably safe to use on babys.
Only a little baby bath is needed to get a good lather and it does not make your skin feel dry or tight. I would think it was mild enough for most skins.
This does not smell at all to me, but the less perfume in it the better as far as babies are concerned.
5 stars - a well established trusted old brand.
---Would I Recommend?---
Yes - but it is expensive and I am sure cheaper products are just as good - but would you risk them on baby?

Johnson's is the leading producer of baby products in the UK and as a parent you feel you are purchasing a premium product when you buy anything carrying the Johnson's logo. Would Johnson's Baby Bath live up to the same high standards though?
Johnson's Baby Bath can be identified from all the other baby baths and body washes produced by Johnson's by its powder blue coloured bottle.
The packaging is altogether very simple.
The Johnson's logo is on the front of the bottle. Underneath is written 'baby bath' in simple, darker blue letters. Under this is the 'no more tears promise' in its customary red tear drop and right at the bottom it states 'mildest ever'.
Turning the bottle around, on the back are more details about the product divided into two clear categories - Best for Baby and Best for You.
Under Best for Baby it reads 'This no more tears formula is as gentle on the eyes as pure water and mild enough to clean a baby's skin without drying it'.
Under Best for You it says 'Mild enough for sensitive skin. Use regularly to gently clean and keep your skin baby soft'.
This baby bath is mild enough for babies, soap free, pH neutral and tested by dermatologists, the label continues.
Then follow the directions for use. For baby it says add one to two squeezes of baby bath product to running water and swirl with hand to mix evenly. For You it reads 'add to running bath water. Swirl with hand to mix evenly'.
Then follows a list of ingredients. The bottle I have contains 200ml of baby bath.
As the label states, this baby bath is multi-purpose as it can be used on both baby and you.
I have only used it to bath my daughter and my experience of how effective this product has been at doing this follows.
I have been using predominantly Johnson's Baby Bath in my daughter's bath water since her birth just over a year ago. We have dabbled with other varieties of Johnson's bath products including bedtime bath which I found very effective but have always returned to this one.
The main draw to this product is its mildness. Whilst the bedtime bath has a lovely lavender fragrance it seemed as a result it would be a little harsher on my daughter's skin. Johnson's baby bath has very little fragrance, and also produces very little froth and foam in the bath so it is the mildest baby bath you can use from my experience, short of using just water alone.
To use I squeeze some of the baby bath into our main bath at the tap end whilst the water is running. I squeeze in the contents for just a couple of seconds. I find you need to give the baby bath a good swill around to produce any kind of bubbles in the water otherwise it tends to sit as a blue coloured splodge on the base of the bath.
The baby bath itself is a runny, almost oily consistency and as mentioned is blue. It has very little scent. There is a sweetness that comes from the bottle which almost reminds me of Ribena but I think this is triggered in my mind somehow by the colour of the baby bath.
I usually use just the product in the bath water to wash my daughter all over, including her hair, but on messier days, especially when she has got more food than usual smeared over her, I will put a small blob of the baby bath onto a sponge and wash her over like this, in addition to the product already in the bath water. With this method you can get quite a good level of foam built up on the sponge and it feels like you are giving your baby a thorough washing.
The baby bath does not appear to sting my daughter's eyes as she has never cried when the bath water drips onto her face. Her skin, though free of any real fragrance after her bath, seems fresh, clean and soft. However, she does still suffer from some dry skin on her knees and elbows. I cannot categorically say this has been caused by the baby bath but the product has certainly not made any moves to ease this dryness for her even if it wasn't the original cause of it.
This is without doubt the mildest baby bath on the market and so is the perfect first baby bath for your child. It can be used well beyond those first few months in a baby's life for the peace of mind it is unlikely to cause any irritation to baby's delicate skin, however as your child does get a little older you may wish to change it for something with more scent and foam to make bath times a little more exciting. All in all though a very good product yet again from Johnson's and one I intend to continue to use for some time to come.
I was given two bottles of this just before my daughter was born. This particular bubble bath comes in 2 sizes 300ml and 500ml. The smaller costs £1.89 and the larger £2.85 both from Boots you can also get them in most supermarkets.
The bottle is blue in colour and has a flip lid to dispense the bubble bath.
Johnson's Baby Bath is the original No More Tears baby bath, which is as gentle to the eyes as pure water. Mild enough to clean a newborn baby's skin without drying it.
Mild enough for sensitive skin. Use regularly to gently clean and moisturise to keep your skin babysoft.
Soap free, pH neutral.
To use the bubble bath you simply add one or two squirts to warm, running water and swirl around to create lots of bubbles.
The bubble bath is a pale blue in colour, I wasn't a big fan of the scent of this one, I had been using the baby soft bath which smells lovely and like baby lotion. This one however smells a little minty and I didn't particularly like it.
It did however make a decent amount of bubbles using only a small amount. You can also use this on a sponge as a wash for you baby.
After using this my daughter had really soft skin, it didn't leave her skin smelling as nice as other bubble baths in the range. I also tried it for myself and found to get a decent amount of bubbles in a full size bath you need an awful lot of this stuff!
I would only give this 2 stars as I didn't like the smell and unlike other Johnson's products which I use too this one wasn't as good!
My Children are getting older and so I decided that I no longer needed to buy baby bath and would pick a different bubble bath very excitedly my daughter picked a Disney princess bubble bath and that night I discovered my error.
Johnsons have been making products for over 100 years and these are dermatology tested to ensure that they are safe for everyday use.
Cost and Stockist
Baby bath is available in all leading supermarkets as well as chemist and mothercare the cost for a 500ml Bottle varies but is around the £ 2.65 although currently on offer at 2 for £3 in Sainsbury's.
I buy this as Johnsons is a brand I trust and having tried leading chemists and supermarkets own brands as well as leading competitors I have found this to be excellent value the product unlike others is very thick so one squirt is enough to give lots of bubbles which is very important to my girls as well as the product not irritating their skin very important to their mother!! The 500ml bottle lasts a very long time and so works out better value than the others we have tried.
I believe one bottle lasts over a month and I bath the girls every night.
I mentioned that this is a Baby bath and at 5 and 3 my children no longer count as a baby however on occasions my daughter has patches of eczema so I have always stuck to baby baths as these do tend to be gentler but equally pink and glittery bubble bath was such a draw! and supposedly this was dermatology tested however at £3 for 350ml was more expensive and did make her itch not a lot but enough to warrant an end to grown up bubbles and straight back into the tender Johnson's arms!
I really do recommend this product having tried other baby baths this is thicker so goes further and is therefore economical for delicate skin it is safe and doesn't irate a great baby bath.
I really rate the johnson's baby products as they have been tried and tested for years by generations of families and it's a very well known brand that has a quality and a reputation that no other baby product seems to have matched so far.
I bought this baby bath for my grandson before he was born as it was my job to buy the bath and the bath products when we were getting ready for him to arrive in the world.
Now that he is here I am taking an active part in his feeding and bathtime routines as I have him once a week overnight to help out my daughter and to help give her a break, as this is much needed when your a new mum. I remember it well as I was a single parent with no family to help me and I want to do as much as possible to help out.
In my grandson's daily routine is a bath at the end of the day to help calm and relax him ready for the night time and hopefully in time he will begin to respond to this routine and sleep all night. He is now six weeks old and is just beginning to smile at you which is so cute.
He's a good baby and loves a bath too, he's quite happy to sit in the water looking about the room and smiling occassionally.
As I used the Johnson's products when I had my children I automatically went for this brand as it's one I have used before and trust. I bought the baby bath from Lloyds chemist and it cost me 95p for a 200 ml bottle, you can buy it from the supermarkets too from the baby section near the nappies and creams and it's probably a little cheaper to buy from the supermarkets instead of the chemist.
It is a plastic bottle and the one I bought has a flip up lid which is good for when you are bathing baby, the bottle will float when it hits the water and the flip up lid is easy to open if you have the baby in one arm and are getting the baby bath into the water.
Be careful not to squeeze the bottle too hard as it is a runny liquid inside and comes out fast.
Once you have the water in the bath and tested it for the right temperature, then squeese a little of the baby bath into the water and it will bubble up if you swish the water around. Then bubbles don't foam up and die down quickly.
It says it is soap free on the bottle and won't sting the babies eyes, as with all the Johnson's baby products, but the down side to this is that it has been tested on animals to ensure they have been able to get the right combination of ingredients so as not to sting babies eyes.
It's like being in between a rock and a hard place on this issue.
Do you use products that are not tested on animals and risk the babies eyes being irritated or not ?
It also has been dermatalogically tested which means that it has been tested on adults by them using skin patches to see if an irritation occurs before putting it out on the nmarket.
So, you have to decide if this out weights the price of your baby being free from irritation before you buy. It's not often people think of this and just buy a product without knowing about the product.
Having said that I have no qualms about buying Johnsons products, the baby comes first in my opinion and a product that can be used without tears is good for me.
You only need a little of the liquid for the bath and the scent of the baby bath is like most other Johnsons products as they seem to have a distinctive scent for all of them.
This baby bath is also PH balanced which means it is good for sensative skin and isn't going to dry out your babies skin when using it.
You only need about 1-2 squeezes of the bottle in the water and you can then sit your baby in the bath and gently wash them down with a cloth.
This isn't a shampoo and I wouldn't recommend putting it directly onto your babies hair as it is only for a body wash but there are baby shampoo's you can buy seperately.
After bathing the baby will be more relaxed and calm and hopefully sleepy, but this may not always be the case.
I find my grandson relaxes after a bath and sleeps better, for this baby bath is a good product to use. I am happy to recommend it to you.
If you have any questions on the product you can ring the customer care number on the bottle it is 0845 6020 333 if your in the Uk or 1850 220044 if your in Ireland .
Johnsons Baby Bath
Another product that I recieved as part of my Johnsons Baby Box that again I have continued to use (for all of you who have read any of my reviews, you must be sick of hearing this and I do apologise!). The first thing that attracted me to this product was the scent of it, it giives a fresh burst of of fragrance as soon as you open the lid.
The bottle itself is the recognisable oval Johnsons shape and is light blue in colour with a slightly darker blue flip top lid. The Johnsons famous 'No More Tears' logo is situated in its usual central position making it easily recognisable and familiar.
The Baby Bath itself is a vibrant light blue and is of medium consistancy which, in my opinion, this thickness is a regular trait in most of Johnsons products and seems to create the perfect amount of foam and bubbles.
Personally I use this myself occasionally when I get a bath and find it relaxing and sensual, I also notice that the unique aroma seems to drift in the air when in the bath or shower and linger on the skin afterwards whichis one of the main reasons that I like it and I can honestly say, I do not find with a lot of products. I also find that aswell as most of the other products in the Johnsons range they tend to moisturise and rehydrate the skin rather than dry them out no matter how many times you use them.
Johnsons Baby Wash can be found in most supermarkets and chemists and can be bought in 200ml and 500ml bottles. The 200ml is around £1.50 and the 500ml around £2.50 but as with a lot of Johnsons products, I have found them in the ASDA baby event (which is on several times a year) for £1.00 for 200ml and even sometimes on offer in Tescos for £2.00 for a 500ml. Absolute Bargain!!
Johnsons is one of those brands that I grew up knowing about...it just always seemed to be around so I am sure it was no surprise that it was my baby skin care brand of choice, when I had my own children.
I have been using the baby bath since my children were newborn. Ive always found that it keeps their skin well moisturised, and I even use it myself in the bath and shower!
Johnsons Baby Bath comes in a blue bottle; in 300ml and 550ml sizes.
It costs around the £2.50 mark for the 500ml bottle, and of course slightly less for the smaller size.
The cap is a slightly darker blue than the bottle itself and is a flip lid, the pink tear-shaped "no more tears" logo is on the front in a prominent position, so the packaging is very instantly recognisable - handy in this day and age where there are seemingly thousands of baby baths, washes, lotions and potions on our supermarket shelves!
Opening up the bottle, the liquid inside is a great consistency; not too thick and not too runny, and an attractive translucent blue colour.
Added to warm running water it foams fairly well, providing just the right amount of bubbles for a childs bath, although if you are like me and you prefer LOADS of bubbles in your bath, you will need to add quite a bit more.
The bubbles stay around for a long time too, which is great.
There is a fragrance to this product, but it is very light and to me, indescribable. Although its a very pleasant one.
However, the smell doesnt linger on the skin after it has dried (a negative in my opinion).
As well as using this in bubble baths, I also use this product to wash my own - and my childrens - hair and it does a brilliant job, leaving hair soft and shiny.
A great all-round product.
Warm water and a soothing touch-bathtime is a wonderful time to bond with your baby. Pour Johnson's Baby Bath on a soft washcloth or your hand and gently massage onto his skin. Lather, rinse, and enjoy this special moment together.
