Now, I admit, I wasn't a fan of talc until the past year, when I have birth to my 3rd child. I never really found a need for it as I always used lotion after a bath for both myself and my babies.
However, my baby is a very chunky boy, with lots of rolls and creases and on the advice of the health visitor I purchased this talc to dry in between his creases after a bath as he was getting sore. To start with I would just sprinkle a small amount under his neck, armpits, knee creases and of course the nappy area, I found it would dry up those last bits of dampness a treat not to mention make his skin baby soft and smell good enough to eat. I soon started using over his entire body aswell as on my other children and myself because I was that impressed.
The talc is very easy to use, you just twist the lid to open the small holes at the top and sprinkle away. I would recommend standing on a towel as it can get very messy and is a pain to get off clothes, especially dark coloured ones without washing them.
The fragrance is one I can only describe as babies! It's just that newborn lovely baby smell. Gorgeous!!
Johnson's also do a bedtime version with their lavender fragrance and that is also beautiful and the one that I use before bedtime. I also take this with me to the children's swimming lessons for after they have showered to keep their skin soft after the drying effect of the chlorine.
As always another fantastic product from Johnson's.
I am making up a baby hamper with lots of baby items for my daughter when she gives birth to her 3rd child later this year. I am going to give her the hamper just before the baby arrives as a nice surprise. I know she will love the hamper because she is going to need the goodies for a long time because of the new born and the other 2 children. I have bought this powder for many years for my own children and myself. I just love this powder.
It comes inside a plastic bottle which has the name very clearly on the front so can easily be spotted on a shelf. At the top of the bottle it has holes which are a good size so that the powder can flow from the tub with ease. The powder is white in colour and it is a very fine grain powder which has an amazingly soft texture to it being extremely soft. The fragrance is like smelling a new born baby and it has a beautiful scent, the smell is really strong and smells gorgeous.
The powder simply glides across the skin and dusts over it nicely. It feels super soft while massaging it into the skin and leaves a slight dusting once it has been massaged into it. This powder has a lasting fragrance on the skin and when my grandchildren have slept at my home and I have used this powder I can still smell it on their skin the next morning. It certainly has a staying powder scent on the skin that's for sure.
The powder helps soften the skin and leaves it really soft to the touch. It is such a gentle powder and I can see why it has been around for many years and still being produced and sold by the millions.
This powder has never irritated my grandchildren's delicate skin or my own skin. I used it for own children when they were born and it never left them with any rashes or irritations.
You don't need a lot of this powder to give a good coverage, a little certainly does go a very long way. It is one which can be used after a morning or evening bath and because it massages into the skin extremely well, you can dress the baby immediately and the powder won't transfer onto their clothing. A slight dusting may appear on the clothing but it can be easily washes away from it in the washing machine because the grains are really fine. It is a really nice one to use on your baby's skin just before bedtime after their evening bath because I think the smell of a baby smelling of this powder at bedtime simply smell amazing and fresh. I think it is a joy to use this powder at bedtime because I think the smell of it soothes the baby and hopefully helps it to sleep better.
For a 200ml bottle I paid just £1, I think this price is an amazingly cheap one and this powder is well worth the money. It is also available in larger bottles and smaller ones too, so a good choice of sizes to choose from if you only want to buy a small bottle. It is so affordable for any budget in my opinion. The quality is extremely good too and I think it is the best one on the market.
You simply cannot go wrong buying this baby powder, it is very suitable for a new born baby and for adults too. I don't use it every day for my own skin and only use it a few times a month as a change from using a body lotion or butter on my skin.
I highly recommend this powder if you are pregnant for the first time and unsure which powder to buy for your baby, I don't think you will be disappointed at all in the way it softens a baby's skin and it is a very reliable powder which has been around for many years and I hope it never stops being produced.

I give this baby powder 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I haven't used this product for a few years. However, when I did I used it on my whole body after a shower. I would dry myself but not entirely, I would leave my body damp and tap a bit of this on my skin. I adored the scent but moreover I liked the effect it had on my body. It made my skin baby soft, excuse the pun, and it really made my skin feel smooth without a greasy moisturizer. Of course, this product is often associated with babies as the container states, but there is nothing wrong with adults using this too.
Going back to the scent it is lovely. I loved it so much as a child I'd spray it everywhere and roll in it. Yes, havoc for my mother, but as I got older it lured me into buying other Johnson's products. If I could eat this product I would. I wish they made food with the taste of this scent. A little like Parma Violets.
The product is easy enough to apply, you just twist the lid and tip on your skin. However, be warned that this product can make a complete and utter mess. I tip this on my skin after a shower and I find most of it on the bathroom carpet and it is horrible to get out. I often just rub and rub but then it turns the carpet white. This product it best used over the bath.
You can get Johnson's talc powder from literally anywhere. This ranges from corner shops to supermarkets. Though you would pay more in corner shops. I often buy it from Body Care for around £1.20 or cheaper.
The product comes in a pure white plastic bottle, which I guess resembles purity of the product, meaning it is suitable for babies or the fact that the powder is in fact white. The product container has the branding logo of Johnson's on the front and ingredients and important information on the back. All writing is written in blue.
There is nothing better than the smell of Johnson's baby talc, that lovely baby smell can't be beaten. I have used this talc with all of my 3 babies and still use it now on the older two after swimming lessons as it helps make their skin really dry.
Johnson's baby powder can be used for lots of different things. It can be used after a bath to help dry off the baby's skin, it can also be used after a nappy change for the same reason. The talc is so soft and does not have any additives so it is perfect for baby's skin or sensitive skin.
When I use the powder I find it very easy to apply. You simply sprinkle it either directly onto the baby/person or sprinkle it into your hand and then apply it to the baby's skin from there. You do not need much at all.
The talc is so soft that it smoothes really easily over the skin and is quickly absorbed.
The talc is so nice smelling I often use some myself after I have had a bubble bath and want to smell nice and have lovely soft skin.
The talc is available everywhere from supermarkets to chemists it costs around "2.50 but there are often offers on it in Boots where you can get BOGOF offers which makes it a bit cheaper.
I love the smell of this talc and always associate it with lovely freshly bathed kids clean and in their PJ's all ready for bed! It is a must have for anyone with young babies or children. But don't forget you can use it too!!
I'm not normally one who likes to pay extra for branded products, but when it comes to baby powder I make an exception. I accept that it might be a psychological thing and in reality there isn't much difference, but I've never been as impressed with an own brand or value brand baby powder as I have with Johnson's.
I should say, I don't use this on an actual baby very often, as I don't have one of my own! I use this on myself, after a bath or shower to help my skin feel fresh, dry and soft. I always have a big bottle on the shelf in my bathroom, and it lasts months, because a little goes a long way!
The scent of Johnson's baby powder is one of the things I like most about this product. Its clean, fresh, not overpowering but with enough of a presence that you feel a difference. It doesn't last hours like a truly perfumed product, but it does give you a boost when you're getting ready.
Johnson's baby powder is also great for soaking up the last little bits of excess moisture after a bath or shower. You wouldn't apply it to soaking wet skin, as it would probably turn to a mushy paste which wouldn't be great! However after towel drying, a few shakes of this and run it in and your skin will fee bone dry and silky smooth, ready for your clothes. Be careful about putting darker clothing on straight after applying this by the way! White marks are one of the inevitable hazards of a white product!
What makes Johnson's different to other brands of baby powder is the texture, in my opinon. It feels finer, as though the grains are smaller, others can feel coarse or chunky but Johnsons is like the most perfect white sand on a Caribbean beach you can imagine. In my opinion, its worth paying a little extra for.
Baby powder made by Johnson and Johnson. As everyone knows, Johnson are probably the best makers of baby products, ever.
Why I wanted this....
My skin is very prone to eczema and rashes and I needed something to maintain the constant smoothness and moisture when I finally get it to that stage. I had tried other baby powders but the holes got clogged or it had a nasty smell.
The powder comes in a tub that is white, that has a twisty lid. When you twist the lid it reveals holes that you get the powder out of. The tub has 2 stickers on, the one on the front says the makers name and what the product is. On the back the information is all about how to use and warnings.
What Johnson say....
The baby powder is intended to stop chafing of the babies skin and make it soft and healthy. It is recommended for any age, old or young.
How to use....
Distribute into hands.
Apply on clean dry akin.
You can buy this almost everywhere, in store and online.
You can buy different sizes of this product, 100ml, 200ml or 500ml, the prices for the 200ml is around £1.50. It lasts for quite a while if used sparingly.
What I thought....
I had a bath, dried myself thoroughly. I opened the tub and rubbed it onto my skin. Firstly I noticed how lightweight the powder was and how thin it was. I also noticed the mild scent, I can't put my finger on the smell, but it is a fresh smell it's very very feint. The powder rubbed smoothly into my skin, I did notice it covered everything in talc but that was easy to clean up. I have had less and less problems with rashes on my skin as well as smelling nice and my skin being soft. I would thoroughly recommend having this product in your house as it does prevent rashes and chafing.
Lasts a very long time.
Is a great product for your skin.
Would I recommend...
Without a doubt.
Even though I don't have children there are always a couple of Johnson's baby powder tubs in the house. It has a lovely smell and unlike other powders I have used it does not clog up the holes it comes out of as it is so fine.
I tend not to use it straight after the bath which it is really what it is intended for, but often when I am ready to go out. There are a lot of stories claiming that it can cause cancer if used in certain areas, and also that it causes breathing problems but I have no problems breathing and don't feel that the cancer stories - and there are a lot of them online - are backed up with enough evidence to stop me using it. For the amount of times I use it and the amount I use per time a 200g tub lasts me about a year. There are instructions on the tub warning about the dangers of letting the powder get in a baby's mouth or nose, so I do only use it in a large room.
The powder is very fine and it is hard to describe the scent. It is light and does not last long once applied but is a pleasant smell. I like to put it on my feet, around my knees and round my elbows. It does say not to put on broken skin but I do find that when it is hot and I am beginning to get a rash in the creases of my elbows, if I catch it soon enough it prevents the rash actually developing, and dries the area.
Wherever I use it the powder makes the skin soft and keeps it dry. My mum once told me that before they had deodorant as we know it they would use talc to do the same job. There have been complaints that the smell has changed but I must admit I have not noticed a difference other than maybe it is slightly fainter.
The powder is made by Johnson and Johnson in Dublin and they do provide a phone number in case there are any concerns. The only ingredients listed are talc and perfume.
I tend to get this when it is on offer and usually pay between 99p and £1.29.
I would recommend this product as a way to keep your skin soft and dry but would suggest you look into, and consider how strongly you are concerned about the possible links to cancer and breathing disorders.
JOHNSONS BABY POWDER
Johnsons baby powder comes in a white plastic container, the lid you need to screw around which reveals small holes, where the powder comes out from.
On the front of the bottle it has johnsons baby powder written in blue and on the back is how to use and a few warnings, These warnings include, avoid contact with eyes, keep powder away from nose and mouth, and keep out of reach from children.
Other than that the rest of the bottle is quite plain and simple really, Johnsons baby powder is available to buy in 100, 200 and 500g bottles and is available to purchase in tesco, superdrug, boots and poundland as well as a few other places.
The price ranges between £1.00 and £3.00 depending on the size of the bottle you purchase and where you purchase it from.
***MY OVERALL OPINION***
I have been using johnsons talc for years now and have used it with all 3 of my children, I still do, I also use it on myself, To be honest I don't really know why it is named johnsons baby powder as it is suitable for men, women and children of all ages.
I purchase mine from my local poundland store and get a 200g bottle, This lasts approx 2 months, that is using it for myself and the 3 children each time we have a bath/shower so it is well worth the price.
I find that it has a lovely mild fragrance to it, although I cannot tell you what this is, but it is lovely, and our skin feels lovely and soft after use.
My employer often sends me to hot countries where my northern body suffers in the heat. One thing that helps my feet on work trips like that is Johnson's Baby Powder. Please find my thoughts on it below.
Product / Opinion
I use the 200g sized bottle, but there are also 100g and 500g sized bottles available. The baby powder is designed to create a smooth , friction free protective barrier on the skin which reduces the likelihood of rubbing and chafing. It is blatantly aimed at use on a baby's skin, but this 30 something year old finds it does just a good a job at giving my feet some TLC, just as it did on both my children's skin when they were younger.
It's a mild product, meaning that there aren't too many chemicals in there that are likely to cause an adverse reaction. In fact, all that is listed for its contents are talc and parfum. It is best put onto dry skin - I've learned this by experience as I once used it to talc my feet whilst they were still wet from the shower. Messy - think wallpaper paste meets lumpy vomit. I've found Johnson's baby powder to be very effective at keeping my feet dry, which is what a good talcum powder should do. Obviously, if you were to submerse talced feet into water they are still going to get wet, but for dealing with the mild damp caused by sweaty feet or rain sodden trainers then Johnson's baby powder does a great job.
I also like the smell of it - it brings up warm memories of when my children were babies and it is a very clean smell. There are a couple of different companies that make baby powder scented wax tarts and candles, which suggests it must be a popular scent.
Look out for this on offer - I've seen it in Asda recently for £1. Also, there are some online companies like Pharmacy First that nearly always have it for a similar price. I can't give accurate advice about how long a 200g bottle will last - I only use it on my feet and a bottle generally lasts me around five to six months when used in this way. If you use it all over the body once a day after a shower / bath then obviously it won't last as long.
Overall, a classic product that is reliable in doing its job, and smells great too. Your feet and your baby's bottom will thank you. Five stars from me.
I have always liked to use talc on my children to make sure that they are properly dry after bathtime and have done so since they were babies. My favourite talc is the Johnsons baby talc although I won;t pay for it unless I find it at a good price.
You can buy Johnsons baby products in many places such as supermarkets, chemists and more recntly discount stores. There are a number of different sizes for the product costsing varying amounts and some times you find that buying the smaller sizes is actually better value, a 100g tub is £0.95, a 200g tub is £1.55 and a 500g tub is £1.95 although this is how prices stand today of course they often change.
The product comes in a white plastic bottle/tub with a white top on it which twists to open and reveal a number of small holes where the powder comes out of. When you purchase a new bottle there is a piecve of circular cardboard over the top and then a plastic seal around it so noone can have used some of the talc or tampered with it. On the front of the bottle is the Johnsons logo and nale of the product and then on the back there is the information that the talc will provide a friction free layer on your babies skin along with a warning to keep away from babies mouth and nose, directions for use and the instruction to keep in a cool and dry place.
The holes in the top of the bottle are quite small but the talc is really fine and comes out easily, the twister tip works well and is easy to open and close and the smell of the talc is absolutely divine, in my opinion they have captured the new baby scent brilliantly and it is the best smelling talc I have ever come across.
The talc is easy to put on and I find it best to dispense into my hands and then rub on my children of course with all talc it does go everywhere and I use it in the bathroom to make it easier to clean up. The talc dries the skin wonderfully and I have now started taking it with us when we go swimming as I seem to struggle to get my children properly dry in a hot small cubicle and this really helps.
The talc leaves the skin wonderfully soft and the fragrance sits nicely on the skin lasting for a good amount of hours. I love sitting and smelling my daughters after their baths and they feel so soft to touch. I would recommend this product and always stock up on the bigger bottles when it is on offer as in my opinion it is by far the best talc there is.
This powder by Johnson & Johnson is a talcum powder which has various uses for babies and adults, Johnson's baby powder comes in various tub sizes. The latest one I bought is 200g. This costs £1.55 in Tesco's.
The 500g tub is better value at £1.95 in Tescos. Also available is a 100g tub and a 400g baby bedtime tub. I have often seen various sized tube of this in pound shops from time to time.
The powder comes in a cylinder shaped white plastic tub which stands up, there is a sticker over the holes in the end which is to be removed before use. The top then twists to open the holes and allow you to sprinkle the powder out and twists to seal the holes again so you can carry the powder around without the powder getting everywhere. The 100g tub is handy to keep in a baby changing bag as it is obviously smaller and lighter to carry around than a big one. As many new mothers will know there's a lot of things that need to be carted around with the babies so anything that saves space is useful.
The powder is lightly scented and just has the clean and fresh smell that comes with most talcs.
Uses for the powder
1. For babies, after a bath and changing a nappy, this is used to protect the skin, keeping it dry and cool.
2. My hubby gets red, sore feet and athletes foot, especially in the summer. Since he started putting a small amount of talc into his socks each morning it has improved a lot, helping to keep his feet dry and cool and reduce sweating.
3. Absorbs perspiration under the arms
4. Put on hair to take away the greasy look (I haven't tried this but I would wonder if you could see it on dark hair?)
5. Can prevent razor bumps if used after shaving
6. Basketball players use it to keep their hands dry
You are to be careful when using the powder as it can be dangerous if inhaled, especially in babies.
I tend to use it after a bath or shower, especially when I'm in a rush. It takes away any damp feeling on your skin and I find helps with perspiration and smells nice and clean and leaves your skin soft and dry.
The positive thing about Johnson's bay powder,
Johnson's baby powder you can dry your skin with the baby affect behind it how ever you can not put Johnson's baby powder is not good on wet skin it gose a bit clumpy and i do not likle this i find it better if i put it on damp skin.Johnson's baby powder light and weight less it cans in many different ways for instance a hand luggage size to a fit for family. also you can close the lid to open and close there is 4 little holes that you can get the poder out of it is quick and easy to out on and it is great if you have small children because you can use you imagination with this soft snow like feel you can find this from many supermarkets and is fai8rly priced depending on what size you want
I had bought the Johnson's baby box when expecting my first baby and inside was this Johnson's baby talc which I remember from my childhood.
It comes in a plain white bottle and looks quite simple. I like the way it looks as it is almost natural and so feels that it should be very delicate and mild on your baby's skin. On the top is the lid you simply twist it and it opens up the holes around the side to sprinkle out the powder. This is great as it means the lid can't pop off so it stops any spilling out if knocked over. The holes are quite small so it also means as your sprinkle it you don't get too much. The only problem is sometimes the holes can get clogged up with the powder and when you shake it to get it out a bit too much comes out!
The powder itself is white and feels very soft too touch, it has a very delicate clean smell which I have to admit I love on my baby after I have used it on him.
I use it after having given my baby a bath and dried him off but where he can sometimes feel a bit damp still. As it dries them areas off and means my baby won't be uncomfortable and get any rashes where he was still slightly wet. For this it worked really well.
I have to admit I have also used it on myself occasionally and love how it feels on your skin as it makes it really soft.
I would recommend this as it has worked so well for us and having since used the bottle from the pack we bought we have always bought it and make sure there is always a bottle in the bathroom!
Before I had Jayden I received a hamper full of baby bath products as a present, one of the items in this was a tub of Johnson's Baby Powder, to be honest when I was stocking up on essentials myself this was not something I had actually thought about using, however I am glad I received the powder as part of the hamper as it is now a product that we use on Jayden everyday so it was very handy that we received this.
The Baby Powder comes in a rectangle white plastic tub, this has a clear label on the front of it, written in the centre of this are the words "Johnson's Baby Powder" this is written in blue writing. Right at the bottom of the tub is the brand of the product which is Johnson and Johnson's" just underneath this is the size of the tub, again all of this is written in blue writing which really stands out against the white background. The only other information on the front of the tub is a small red circle at the top of the label which says inside it "Clinically Proven Mildness". The front of the tub is very plain and simple, however you cannot fail to know that this product is Johnson's Baby Powder. The back of the tub has the same clear label on it and again is covered with blue writing. The label on the back of the tub includes all of the product information such as what the powder does, warnings and directions of use, this is clearly set out and easy to read. The tub has a small flip round lid on the top, again in white, you simply twist the lid one way to open and back the other way to close, the lid has a series of small holes going around the edge of it which is where the powder is poured from.
The Johnson's Baby Powder is basically a very fine white powder, the fragrance is very distinctive and most people will recognise the smell of baby powder, to me it always has a slight musky floral sort of fragrance to it, although it is quite a hard smell to describe. Johnson's Baby Powder is designed to create a friction free layer on your baby's skin to help prevent chafing from clothing or nappies, this is particularly useful after bath time.
Using the baby powder is very easy even on a small baby, you simply sprinkle some of the powder into you hand and rub it into the skin whilst avoiding contact with the face. The powder rubs into the skin easily although it does give the skin a slightly paler appearance, you can see the barrier of powder on the skin. Once applied to the skin the fragrance of the powder is not strong and overpowering but subtle, despite the subtle fragrance it is long lasting and when I apply it to Jayden's skin after his bath the fragrance lasts all evening leaving him smelling clean and fresh.
There are various warnings on the back of the packaging which include
* Keep the powder away from your babies nose and mouth as inhalation can cause breathing problems.
* Avoid contact with eyes
* For external use only
* Keep out of reach of children
I find when using this product to avoid inhalation it is best to keep the product well away from the face so I make sure I apply the powder to my hands away from Jayden's face and then gently apply it to his body to avoid it puffing up into the air.
Johnson's Baby Powder is available from most supermarkets as well as shops such as Boots and Superdrug. I received a 200g bottle and this size tub costs around 77p from my local Tesco although the price depends on where you purchase it from. Personally I feel that this is good value for money, the 200g tub of powder is proving to be extremely long lasting, I have been using the tub for several weeks now and have used hardly any of the product, for a baby you really do not need a lot of the powder at a time so it really does last a long while.
I would definitely recommend the Johnson's Baby Powder, I always apply this to Jayden's skin after his bath to ensure his skin is fully dried and smooth and so that his baby grow does not rub his skin when he is in bed or laying kicking his legs. Personally I feel the baby powder is excellent value for money, it is cheap to buy and very long lasting, I find that you only need a small amount of the product at a time. Although it is called Johnson's Baby Powder it is also a product that adults can use as well, although is not something that I use myself. After applying the powder to Jayden's skin after his bath it feels extremely smooth and soft, personally I really like the smell of Johnson's Baby Powder and afterwards Jayden's skin smells clean and fresh, this is a fragrance that lasts a long while and I can still smell the powder on him well into the evening. Although you can see the layer of powder on his skin I find that it does not rub off onto his clothes at all. Overall I have been extremely pleased with the Johnson's Baby Powder and would certainly recommend it to anyone, it is a product that I will continue to use.
I can remember being a 7 year old child, and getting out of the bath to smother myself in this. And, from previous conversations with my mother, I am pretty sure I've been powdered in this product from birth. Yankee Candle have even brought out a 'Baby Powder' candle that smells of the stuff too, A classic, I'd call it, a traditional product that I will probably be using on my children in the future too.
A clinical, plain white bottle with simple writing on the front, if you were an alien to walk into a drugstore, this product does not stand out from the rest, but is that a problem? For me, absolutely not. They do say that it is never good to judge a book by it's cover, and this product certainly doesn't look anything special from the outside. However, you only have to twist the lid (Although technically you'd probably get told off for doing that in a store), to smell the gorgeous fragrance the powder has.
On Johnsons website, it is suggested that the product should be used to eliminate friction and has a classic, clean scent, which it certainly does. Millions of tiny, slippery plates are within the powder which glide over eachother, helping to reduce friction. Now, personally, I use the product when I get out of the shower, and my skin still feels damp, and in some places, sticky. I use it practically everywhere, bar my hands and feet, and not only do I smell good whilst getting dressed, but feel drier and cleaner.
The bottle can be bought in a 500ml or now, I believe it can also be bought travel sized, although I am not sure what ml that would be. The product is so popular that the prices vary, personally, I purchase mine from bargain stores and the price usually ranges from £1-£2.
The dispenser is a twisty cap with small holes which is very practical and ensures that the talc lasts as long as possible and none is wasted or accidentally poured out in large amounts. Unless rushing, I use this after every shower or bath (Once every other day), and it lasts me about 8 months, making it even better value for money.
If some alien creature was oblivious to the fact this fantastic product existed, I would definitely recommend and recommend endlessly. I am sure it will be a product that is around for generations to come.
Use anytime you want skin to feel soft, fresh and comfortable. For baby, use after every bath and diaper change.
