Advantages: Good price, moisturising
Disadvantages: Not the most interesting of smells
I cannot remember a time when there hasn't been a bottle of Johnson's Baby Lotion in the bathroom cabinet. It is one of the most commonly bought body lotions, and even though it is supposed to be a 'Baby Lotion', it can be used well on adults' skin just as nicely. I find this rather more mild and 'baby-like' than other body care products, which is nice and a welcome change after all the exotic scented lotions and butters that I usually pick.
Obviously, I do have a big selection of body butters and body lotions I like to use, and Johnson's Baby Lotion is something that I use from time to time, admittedly a little bit like a last resort. I have always found it very effective, however, even though it is quite a simple product- but it is said that the simplest products are the things that work the best.
This body lotion is not a particularly expensive one, compared to some of the body lotions I have bought in the past; however, it is not exactly the cheapest either. From Boots, a 500ml bottle costs £2.85- this seems a little bit expensive for something as simple as Johnson's Baby Lotion, but 500ml makes for quite a large bottle which, especially if it is not something that is used daily. It is very cheap if you consider the prices of other body care companies, for example the Body Shop.
This is packaged inside a pink neutral looking bottle that looks quite simple, classic and calm, and something soothing that could be used for babies' skin. The cap can be popped up very easily by hand and the lotion can be squeezed out without problems (though I find I tend to squeeze out too much), so that it can be massaged into my skin. The lotion has quite a thick (but not pasty) pink texture, which feels nice and soothing when it is massaged in.
It is very good for dry and chapped skin; I like to apply this in winter especially, instead of the normal body butters I use to stop my skin from cracking and feeling so dry. It moisturises my skin very well, and makes it feel very soft, like babies' skin. It helps dry skin quite a lot and makes it feel smooth. The feel of the lotion is quite cool and relaxing to apply.
The smell is nothing along the exotic and fruity scents of my normal body lotions and body butters. It is more like a soothing baby smell, which brings about a feeling of calmness and relaxation, which is nice. I cannot say that it is my favourite scent for a body care product, since it is not the most interesting of smells, but nevertheless I have to say that it is a nice, familiar smell.
Overall, I think that Johnson's Baby Lotion is a very good option, since it is very good for moisturisation, does not smell bad and can be bought for quite a good price. It is not the best moisturiser I have tried, but it is a pretty good one. I would recommend this product with 5 out of 5 stars.
Summary: A good, classic choice
