      a lovely cream for my 2 year old, affordable from well known johnson's baby brand

      When my daughter was born, her dads sister who worked in a health centre went all out buying my daughter all kinds of fancy creams from expensive brands known to man. When she left that job, as lovely as the creams were I could not afford to be spending £10+ on a sample sized lotion for my daughter. Don't get me wrong, I love her endlessly and always endeavour to make sure she has the best of the best, but a cream isn't particularly high on my list of priorities, as she can just as easily use a high street brand. She doesn't suffer from any allergies or skin conditions (I used to suffer from eczema myself as a child) so she is fortunate in that respect, but I didn't want to take any chances and get anything too perfumed that may irritate her skin or cause her to flare up. When shopping in Superdrug one day, I saw this Johnson's baby soothing naturals cream. I decided to go for this after knowing Johnson's as a reputable brand for babies toiletries and the fact the soothing naturals baby range is slightly more pricier and more suited for delicate skin I thought what harm could it do? The benefits of this cream is also that it is developed by paedeatricians, tested by dermatologists and clinically proven to be mild. This is definitely what drew me to this lotion over others on the shelf and encouraged me to buy it knowing it would be good for her skin. The packaging highlights that this cream combines the Johnson's mildness with a blend of olive leaf extract, vitamin E and skin essential minerals (whatever they are!) and that is starts relieving baby's dry skin, even dry patches from the first use, and moisturises for 24 hours. Using the cream is ideal and easy to apply. It comes out in a slightly greeny-olive coloured thick consistency and doesn't smell like the typical brand of Johnson's products but certainly has a mild olive smell to it (not sure whether this is genuine or added chemical but I appreciate the smell of it.) It is non-greasy, and doesn't leave her skin feeling shiny and oily, but does look well moisturised and supple. However, I think it is a bit of stretch to say the lotion lasts 24 hours! After using it at night after she has had a bath, I like to re-moisturise her skin in the morning just to ensure she is fully creamed and ready to go with no dry patches which she seems to get predominantly on her elbows and knees after a long day playing at nursery! I think the description of "intense moisture cream" is a bit deceiving giving this reality. The tube states it is fast absorbing and I have to agree that it definitely is. Not a lot is required for me to moisturise her body from head to toe, and I tend to find a 100ml tube can last up to 2 months (she is only 2 years old so doesn't have a particularly large body which would require a lot of usage!) I generally apply about the size of a 50p coin to my palm, and probably an amount the size of a 10p coin to hers (I like to make her feel involved at bedtime and she enjoys moisturising herself anyway!) and this is sufficient to cover her face and body all over so you really get your money's worth with this cream. It comes in 2 different packages, the 100ml tube and the 250ml flip lid bottle. I occasionally buy different sizes depending on what I can afford, as I do my usual grocery shop in sainsburys a 250ml bottle costs £2.15 but the 100ml bottle costs around £1.50. Overall, my daughter and I are 100% happy with this product and so are my purse strings! I have found a high quality, soft and gentle moisturiser without shelling out too many pounds on an elite brand. Happy times all round!

      A not- so great lotion from Johnson's. Too pricey and doesn't do the job

      I am a massive fan of the Johnson's baby range; if you have read my other reviews you will be familiar that I love most things Johnson's. When they brought out this new 'Naturals' range I was quite excited to test it out . Tesco, Boots and Mothercare are the stores in which stock the most from this range, and Tesco seems to be the cheapest. The Intense Moisture Cream is approximately £3.50 in Tesco. I did think that this was quite pricey; especially as I was/am used to paying just over a pound for the basic Johnson's range. I remember thinking that this stuff had better be good for that price. The Intense Moisture Cream comes in a squeezy tube of 100ml; I haven't seen it any smaller or bigger. Keeping in with the 'natural' theme, the tube is pale green and the flip lid is mid- green. The difference with this cream is that it contains Olive Leaf extract, plus other essential minerals and Vitamin E to help soothe dry patches. I bought this to use on my daughter's legs, as she seemed to get very dry skin on this area. She was about six months old at the time. Immediately, I did not like the smell. It wasn't overpowering or strong, but certainly didn't have the Johnson's smell I know and love. I found that the cream was quite thick and slightly resembles nappy cream. It didn't rub in well so I had to wash the excess off with water. Johnson's claims this cream to be non- greasy and provide moisture for 24 hours. I found that the cream wasn't greasy, but did not provide moisture for 24 hours. It didn't seem to provide any moisture really and did not provide much relief from her dry skin. However, I have found it a great hand cream! I use it before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my hands feel silky soft. I wouldn't buy this product again as I haven't used it for its correct purpose, and hand creams are much cheaper and do the job just as well!

      Brilliant product, will help moisturise even the toughest dry skin!

      Around two months ago 2 year old son developed a red dry patch on the back of both his knees. I tried several creams and lotions (e45, sudocrem, SSS), but the patches remained and looked quite sore. On my weekly shop to Tescos, I wandered down the baby aisle (for nappy's and baby wipes) and decided to have a look at the baby creams available. I spent quite a while deciding which cream would be most effective for my son's sore legs. I decided to purchase Johnson's Soothing Naturals Intense Moisture Cream. Johnson's Baby is a well known brand, recommended by midwives and Mothers worldwide. I have used many of their products over the years, and as a result I have faith in their products. I chose to by the product in the form of a 250ml tub which cost me £2.49. Although this was more expensive than other creams on the shelf, I felt happy to pay this price for a well recommended product (I also felt it was very reasonably priced for the size of the product). The bottom of the tub displays the following information - "Johnson's baby SOOTHING NATURALS combines Johnson's mildness with a unique blend of Olive leaf extract, pure Vitamin E and skin essential minerals , proven to be more effective than each ingredient alone" . It also claims that the cream is non-greasy and will sooth dry patches from first use. The cream is thick, but also has a light fluffy texture. It is creamy yellow in colour and has a lovely mild scent (not over powering). Does the cream work? I rubbed the cream onto my sons legs several times on the first evening of use (around every 2-3 hours). The cream was fast absorbent and non-greasy! I rubbed the excess cream into my hands, which left them feeling nice and soft. I was stunned to see how well his legs had cleared up the following morning. They were no longer red and sore, just a little bit flaky still. I continued using the cream, and within 3 days his dry patches had completely disappeared, leaving fresh healthy skin. I also had a dry patch on my lower leg, which developed over two years ago during my 2nd pregnancy. I had seen how well this cream had worked for my son, so decided to try it for myself. Again, the cream worked it's wonders and over time, my skin is now looking and feeling so much better. I still have a slight discolouration from where the patch was, but my skin now feels soft :-) It is also worth mentioning that the cream spreads extremely well. A little really does go a long way. I cannot explain how brilliant this cream is! You really must try it for yourselves :-)

      multipurpose wonder!

      I'm not a baby but I still love johnsons products. So when I needed a new hand cream, instead of looking in the proper place in sainsbury's I went to the baby section of toiletries. At the time they had half price on everything so I got a tube of this for only about 70p! The tube is different to the picture, it has no rounded top and is a green colour which reminds me of olives and since this is 'soothing naturals' an appropriate colour. Well, it makes a nice change from the pink! I am told this relieves dry skin from the first use, fast absorbing and non greasy (yes please!) it combines a unique blend of olive leaf extract, pure vitamin E and skin essential minerals proven to be more effective than each ingredient alone (patent pending) so far it sounds great! The smell is a light one similar to baby lotion but a bit different. I still love the smell and hate it when hand creams are so heavily perfumed, you can smell them hours later. A pea size amount is enough to cover both your hands and they don't feel greasy but it doesn't sink in straight away so you can't tell that you just used something so as a hand cream it's perfect! my hands usually have skin flaking off from washing dishes and it cleared this up so it works on even the driest skin (that is until I have to do the washing up again!) However it does say apply to face and body as needed so I use some on my dry elbows and again they feel soft even hours later. I take this cream everywhere with me now as it's great as a multipurpose cream and i'm now on my 3rd tube! I have seen this in boots and sainsbury's however boots sell it closer to the £3 mark and sainsbury's sell it for about £1.50. also look out for half price at sainsbury's which they seem to have quite often!

      Excellent moisturiser for sensitive skin

      After I had my daughter I began to get extremely dry skin on my hands due to constant washing after nappy changes, feeding etc and so I tried many hand creams recommended by my chemist. I couldn't find any that suited my because I found them all very greasy. I had bought this johnsons moisturiser for my daughter on a whim before she was born and decided to give it a try. I was delighted by how well this worked for my hands. When I first used it I noticed the lovely scent. I'm terrible at describing smells but it's really sweet and almost smells like a baby! It soaked into my hands really fast which I like and aftermath applying for a few days my hands were back to normal. On the tube it mentions nothing about being used on adults. It is described as an intensive baby moisturiser. I would still recommend it to anyone who has dry skin though I do have sensitive skin so this might be why it worked wonders for me. If you don't have sensitive skin you may be better of using moisturiser that isn't specifically for babies. It's cheap too at only 3 euro for a tube that will last months of everyday use. I have also seen this available in a nappy rash cream from but never bought it as I would prefer sudocream myself.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent baby product

      This Johnson's Baby Soothing Naturals Intense Moisture Cream for babies is wonder stuff. We have very, um.....earth mothery type midwives / health visitors in this neck of the woods, which of course is no bad thing in general - but on the other hand they do somewhat give you the heebie-jeebies about using any kind of topical ointment / product whatsoever on your sprog. 'Did you know the skin of a newborn baby is 98% more permeable to chemicals than that of a grown-up'? etc. etc. etc. (please note that I don't know what that skin-permeability figure actually is - I just plucked that 98% out of thin air). So, I was very leery of putting anything at all on our new baby's skin, with the result that now he's teething and soaked from chin to sternum in saliva almost 24/7, he's developed a nasty bit of chafing under his neck. Originally I tried to sort this problem out using a mineral-oil-based Johnson's 'post bath' chamomile moisturiser that had worked really well on Sprog #1. With Sprog #2 the 'moisturizing oil' just made everything 100% worse as it trapped yet more moisture next to the baby's skin not allowing the skin to breathe. Next I tried straight aloe vera gel which was a worse mistake - it's far too harsh for baby's skin. Then I was in the Asda supermarket baby aisle when I saw a tube of this Johnson's moisturizer, and I have to say, was initially attracted by its pale green colour which seemed most appealing to me. The blurb on the packet says it 'relieves dry skin from the first use' and that it's a 'unique blend of olive leaf extract, vitamin E' (etc.) and that it's 'clinically proven mild' - both of which seemed right on the button to me. If you look at the ingredients list you'll also see it has more actual plant extracts in it: these include chamomile, aloe (again) and sunflower (of all things). The cream really does sooth chapped / inflamed baby skin. We're using it on the sprog first thing in the morning and last thing at night, and though some of the worst red patches are still there even those show a great deal of improvement, and the whole 'problem area' is much better overall. (Please note what's wrong with the sprog is mild to moderate skin irritation caused by dampness / chafing - it's not an allergy or eczema or anything more serious). The lotion is absorbed very well and leaves no trace of oily residue - it really IS a 'non-greasy formula' - a claim I've read on (adult's) moisturising lotions again and again over the years but never really encountered in a product before. Incidentally the smell of the lotion is wonderful - after it's absorbed it leaves a faint, sweetly herbal smell; not at all cloying or artificial or harsh. 100ml of the lotion - a smallish tube - costs about £1.30 and it's well worth trying. It's a wide-capped tube, one of those ones designed to sit upright on its lid. The last bits in the tube are a bit tricky to squeeze out but that's tubes all round for you, isn't it. This is one of those very rare new products that's really impressed me as being something worthwhile. I'd highly recommend it.

      Lovely smell, excellent results.

      Johnsons is a brand I trust - its well known and in the vast array of baby products there are to choose from, it is one I go back to time and again. The soothing naturals intense moisture cream has a lovely consistency and rubs in quickly to the skin. It is absorbed within a minute and skin is left feeling soft and smelling beautiful - it is a natural, clean smell. My son has had dry skin off and on since he was born and the intense moisture cream has helped to alleviate this. It leaves his skin feeling soft and moisturised. The smell is especially good, as I have found that a lot of baby products can be quite girly smelling, not so with the soothing naturals. I suffer from sensitive skin myself and have eczema on my arms and legs and I too use this - especially after a swimming session. I have had no reaction to this cream and my skin is left feeling wonderful and hydrated.

        A good moisturiser from Johnson

        I bought this JOhnson´s Soothing Naturals Intense Moisture Cream for myself, when I saw it at a discount store for 99p. I am quite fond of Johnson´s products and therefore thought, 99p why not. This moisturiser comes in a 100ml squeezy tube on with an upside down lid. Something that much prefer when it comes to creams and lotions, as it creates better accessability and also i eliminates mess. This cream when you squeeze it out of the tube is white and thick. When you rub it into your skin, you notice that it is very easily absorbed and has a slighty fresh smell also. The cream is very soft when applying and also leaves your skin feeling soft afterwards too. I find that this cream is pretty good, especially for 99p. A quality cream, Im glad I stumbled across. I find that the cream moisturises your skin, just as its supposed to and makes your skin feel soft, fresh and moisturised. Something all moisturisers should do for you. Overall I found this cream to be an absolute dream. The price, the packaging, the effects, the application, but unfortunately when I went back to buy this cream again, it was no longer available and although I have seen it in other shops, the price isnt the same. In other shops, it was selling for approximately £1.99, which is double what I paid. I am still keeping an eye out for this cream to appear in my discount cosmetic store. A highly recommendable cream.

        Intense moisture cream for babies, works on dry skin from first use.

        My 4 month old baby has been suffering with dry skin on his tummy, his head and especially on the side of his face. As a first time mum I have obviously been finding this very upsetting as his little face was beginning to look very sore. Every mourning and after his bath time on an evening I was using the normal Johnson's baby lotion (the pink bottle) on his skin, but sadly I had not seen any improvements. I tried a number of different alternatives -changed the washing powder I was using to wash his clothes, changed the type of baby bubble bath he was having in his bath and even reduced the number of baths he was having a week. However, as his bath time is part of his nightly routine to get him settled for bed this was not really the option I wanted to take. Then a friend of the family bought him 'Johnson's - Soothing natural's intense moisture cream'. This cream is supposed to start relieving your baby's dry skin, even dry patches, from the first use. And it does exactly that!!!! I was completely amazed at the immediate improvement the cream had on my little sons face. Within 24 hours the dry patches on his face and head had dramatically reduced and were almost clear. The cream is fast absorbing and non greasy and smells wonderful. This is a perfect cream for giving your baby an all over body and face massage. My little boys face lights up with laughter and smiles as I gently massage this wonder cream into his tiny face and body. Seeing my baby boy laughing and smiling and looking healthy is the most wonderful sight in the world for me right now, and I am very grateful to have found such a fantastic cream to have helped relieve my baby's dry skin and to see him looking so well. Johnsons soothing natural's intense moisture cream combines Johnson's mildness with a unique blend of olive leaf extract, pure vitamin E and skin essential minerals proven to be more effective than each ingredient alone. Highly recommend to any mother wishing to provide their baby with beautiful soft healthy skin.

          Would use again

          I was on the look out for some new cream for my face recently, as my skin gets really dry in the winter. I was looking for something quite mild, because I hate using overly scented creams on my face. Whilst out shopping in Sainsburys, I was looking at the creams in the baby section, as I normally pick up a bottle of baby lotion (which I find a great moisturiser), and stumbled across this instead. ~~ The product ~~ Johnson's baby 'Soothing naturals' intense moisture cream is a heavy moisturiser, which claims to relieve dry skin, even dry patches, from the first use. They say: "Johnson's baby soothing naturals combines Johnson's mildness with a unique blend of Olive leaf extract, pure vitamin E and skin essential minerals, proven to be more effective than each ingredient alone" They have three main ingredients in it, these include: Pure vitamin E - for skin soothing benefits. Olive leaf extract - for skin beneficial antioxidant effects. Skin essential minerals - that play key roles in skin metabolism and cell water balance. In the same range, they also do a nourishing lotion, hair and body wash, sooth & protect balm, and moisture rich bath. ~~ The packaging ~~ The cream is packaged in a light mint green tube, which sits on it's lid. The lid is a simple, sturdy flip lid, which works well. You get 100mls of the product inside. On the tube it has the blue Johnson's baby logo, and beneath that it says ''soothing naturals'' with a picture of a leaf below it. Below that is the promise that it relieves dry skin from the first use, perfect! ~~ Using the product ~~ Squeezing the product out is very easy. The cream is quite thick, and therefore it is very easy to squeeze out the right amount of cream you need, which is much easier than runny creams that just flow out freely. The cream has a very slight scent, that smells very fresh. I'm not sure how to describe the smell, as it isn't of anything in particular, it just smells lovely and fresh, and not overpowering at all. The cream is thick, but it is very easy to rub into the skin. It is absorbed very quickly, and I can't feel any residue left, like you get with some other creams. I've used it on both my face, and body, and both have worked well. Although I don't think it would work as well on the face in summer, as it is such a heavy cream, but it is great for dry skin in winter. I can't comment on using this cream on a baby, as it is also meant for, but I can't see why there would be any problems with doing so! ~~ The price ~~ The 100ml tube is currently on sale in Sainsbury's for £1.51 and the tube has lasted quite well, as you don't need to use a lot of it. I'm not aware that they do any other sizes, but this size is great for me, as it means you can just pop in in your bag when you're out to take it with you etc.

          Disadvantages

          A great substitue for expensive creams

          Johnson's Soothing Natural Intense Moisturising Cream...... I used plenty of different creams on Jack's dry skin when he was little and this particular one was no goof for him as even though it suggests that it is "natural" and soothing when used on irritated skin it only seemed to make the problem worse. So because it is rather expensive at a bit over £2.50 pence for only 100ml I decided to put it away in the cupboard. It wasn't until I was having a clear out a few months back that I remembered buying it for him and decided to use the rest of the tube up before it went off. This was the best thing I could of ever done as I have found a cream that works brilliantly on my skin. Compared to buying proper skin moisturisers such as No.7 and the like this one is a snip and in my opinion works tons better. It is easy to get out of the tube as a little squeeze sends some squirting out of the hole in the flip top lid (easy to open and close too). A little bit of this cream seems to go a long way so when using it on my face I try not to over do it and use about a 5 pence piece size amount. The smell of the cream is not overly appealing and although it does smell natural this isn't the aroma that I am used to as to me it smells rather earth mothery. However I am able to look over the smell of the product for the fact that it does actually work so well. I do tend to get dry patches on my skin from time to time but am more prone to dry lips and dry hands. This works well on all areas of my body and it really does wonders for my lips giving them total moisture and leaving them feeling like someone else's. The cream is thick and has a nice consistency making it smooth onto the skin well. It does take a little while to sink in and perhaps leaves the skin a little tacky, not greasy, after use. Again this is something I can look over for the results are the best thing about using the product. After a week of using it morning and evening I found my face felt tighter and firmer! I can honestly say that I had several people comment on how good my skin looked - which was a lifetime first! I don't know if I am right in saying but it really seemed that a few of my laughter lines seemed to decrease in depth and overall my skin looked 70% better - and this after a week! I used up the tube and I have since bought at least 4 ad I am nearing the end of my current tube. I do think that applying it morning and evening helps with the results too but the majority of it has got to be the product. I know it is designed for babies but this is something I will continue to use until I will probably end up looking like the back end of a baby. I really rate this product for myself and not for use on Jack as he really didn't take to it. So I guess it really has got to depend on everyone's skin to whether these results will be the same. But I am awarding a 5/5 star rating and giving it an exceptionally high recommendation. I think for the results that I have seen it would be worthwhile everyone trying it to see if they are as lucky as me. I even got asked for ID for the first time in ages the other day!!!! All in all I think this is a must try and I hope that they don't put the price up or worse still discontinue it like they seem to do with most of my favourite products! I do hope this has been of some help/interest to you Many thanks for taking the time to read.

          A Wicked Product For Small Patches Of Dry Skin But Too Greasy Feeling For Big Areas Of Skin

          I got a proper weird patch of dry skin on my arm a few months ago, just a little rectangle of very dry skin even though there was no change to the rest of the skin on my body. I went to the docs because a few people in my family have had skin cancer and I've got a mole right in the middle of the dry patch but after she looked at it carefully she said it was just a rogue patch of eczema that was probably a throw back from the eczema I had when I was a baby. She gave me some awful smelling cream that was so thick and oily that it made me feel sick when I was rubbing it in so I went to Boots to see what they had for dry skin. I came out with a tube of Johnsons Soothing Naturals cream for very dry skin because even the pharmacist said they sold loads of it and she's heard that it's a very intensive moisturiser. After using it for over a month I know it works brill because the dry skin has completely gone now and it went about a week after I started rubbing this into it every day. As soon as you put the first lot on it starts soothing the area where you've got the irritation and it stopped mine being itchy as well because it was getting to the point where I was scratching my arm so much that I was making it bleed and crack a bit. I'm not mad keen on the feel of it or the smell. The smell because it smells a bit like plastic and has a weird oily smell to it as well but on the tube it said there is olive leaf in it so I reckon that could be the oily smell. It absorbs good but leaves a greasy feeling on my skin that I can feel when my clothes rub against it, it's not too bad only putting it on a little bit of skin like me but if you put it over your whole body then I reckon you'd feel like you'd had a bath in butter because it's a proper heavy cream. I don't know quite what rating to give this because it worked wicked for me but the feel of it means that if you've got dry skin all over your body then there are much nicer feeling body creams. From a personal point of view it's brill so I'll give it 4 stars but just remember it is greasy feeling and that lasts for ages so if you want something drier then it might not be right for you.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great budget price body cream.

          My daughter has really dry and sensitive skin and at the age of almost 12 is really starting to take a great interest in her skin care, which I personally am encouraging as I feel it's a good thing to start as early as possible. With the warmer weather recently her skin has been particularly dry and she asked me to take her to Tesco to get a new cream for her face and body. Off we went and after a while we noticed a special display for all the Johnson's Baby Naturals. They all looked and sounded great, claiming to be mild enough to use all over baby including her face and also claiming to relieve dry skin from the first use and with the added bonus of only costing £2.14 for a 250ml tub we decided to pick one. The Intense Moisture Cream sounded just right for my daughter's needs. As I said, the cream was packaged in a 250ml tub, not like the picture above, rather an actual tub with a screw on lid. The tub itself was a very pale green colour with the lid being in a slightly darker shade of green. The label on the top was again in a very pale shade of green with "Johnson's Baby Soothing Naturals Intense Moisture Cream" written on it. On the base of the tub were all the ingredients and all the product information. I quite liked the tub with the pale green really complimenting the "Naturals" name. On first opening the tub there was a peel off foil lid, which I peeled off and was immediately greeted with a lovely scent from the cream. Quite an unusual scent, a herby refreshing fragrance, which I definitely found quite pleasant. The cream itself was an off white colour and quite thick and creamy. How Did the Cream Perform? My daughter and I both tried this Intense Moisture Cream as a body cream first. Both of us had our showers before applying and then we applied liberally to our bodies. On the tub it states that the cream is "fast absorbing and non-greasy", well we can both certainly vouch for this. I loved the way this cream smoothed into my skin with ease and was instantly absorbed leaving no oiliness at all. My skin felt very soft and smooth and it actually felt quite unusual because it made my skin feel like it had a moisturised coating over it but without any oily or greasy residue. We were both very impressed with the result. It definitely did help relieve dry skin instantly and because of the coating it seemed to leave, that moisturised feeling seemed to last for ages. The Face Test.... Having performed so well on our bodies we proceeded to try it on our faces. This time we weren't quite as impressed with the results. As soon as both my daughter and myself applied the cream to our faces we both experienced a stinging, burning sensation and a tightness to our skin. Although we both felt that the cream left our faces feeling very soft and moisturised we did both feel it just wasn't quite as mild as it claimed, even my eyes seemed to suffer a bit from a stinging sensation. Overall I probably would recommend this cream for use as a body cream but I definitely would not recommend for use on facial skin, especially not a baby's face. I was a bit surprised when I read the very long list of ingredients (far too long to mention and bore you with here), for a product claiming to be so very natural I did think there were quite a lot of unnatural additives in the cream.

            A fantastically scented intensive cream.

            Johnson's Soothing Naturals Intense Moisture Cream is designed for use on baby's skin and the one I have slightly differs to the picture above. It comes in a round tub with a screw top lid which contains 250ml of the cream. The pot I have has a very small amount left because I've been using it on and off for the last few months and it's lasted me a fair while. The cream in the pot is a thick cream which is white in colour and when I dab some on my arm and rub it in with a circular motion it takes just a few seconds to be soaked in to my skin and it does not leave behind any stickiness. There is a glorious smell to this cream which I believe to be partly because of the olive leaf extract. My skin is left feeling lovely and smooth and I can't believe just how nice this is for just under £4.00. I do find that the smell from this sticks around for most of the evening if I use it after my evening bath and I've found it to be perfect for using after shaving because I have very sensitive skin and I find that I need to moisturise it very frequently just to prevent some of the intense itching that I get during the summer months (I've not got fleas - honest!). This is well worth the money that I paid for it and I would say that it's going to be great for most babies skin as it's great for relieving dry skin and this did start from the first time that I used it (as it claimed on the pot). It kept my skin moisturised for many hours and if I ever wake up in the morning and don't bother reapplying I find that I usually last until I have my bath in the early evening and then reapply. The pot itself is great and once it's empty I'm going to give it a clean out and use it for keeping all my hair grips and hair bands safe in my handbag, plus if you don't find a use for it it can actually be recycled. I am going to rate this intense cream 5/5 as it's fantastic (as I've said above several times probably!) and would be perfect for using on babies sensitive skin.

            not just for baby, mummy can use it too

            i have just used some of this on my 2 year old daughter for the first time and this stuff smells divine.apparently its olive leaf extract, pure vitamin E and skin essential minerals but anyhoo its yummy scrummy as my little one says. It soaks into your skin so easily and quickly and it very light you hardly even know its there. believe me ive tried it on me too :o) and a little bit goes a long way too. Been in a squeezy tube instead of a bottle makes it so much easier to use too,no more shaking the bottle to get the last bit out to make sure you get your moneys worth,just squeeze a little bit out and off you go. The price of this stuff is really good too, i dont think you pay more than £2 for it even in boots but we found the whole natural range in our local pound shop last week so we got 1 of everything to give it a try. Yes i will be going back to stock up on some more if everyone else that has bought it and tested it before me hasnt bought it all already. Defiantly worth a try if you normal cream has run out and you need to buy more
