I can't confess to being particularly brand loyal when it comes to using body wash and shower gel products, often just purchasing whatever jumps out at me from the supermarket shelves. This method is how I recently got to try the "24 hour Moisture Extra-Rich Body Wash" from the well-known brand "Johnson's." I purchased the 250ml bottle of Body Wash purely based on it's reduced price tag, as I thought it offered excellent value for money at the time.
I actually only paid around 60 pence for the bottle in a local branch of Tesco recently, a price which has apparently been greatly reduced from the current price shown on their website which is around £3. I'm not sure why the product was reduced so much, as I am not aware of it being a discontinued product. Never one to question a bargain, I purchased two bottles of the product and this review outlines my experiences.
The packaging for the product is fairly boring, as are many of the products in the Johnson's range in my opinion. Comprising of a white bottle with a pink 'flip-up' lid on top, there is a slightly angular/oval shape to be found in the bottle's design. There is full detail provided about the product on the bottle.
The liquid Body Wash is a pale pink/white coloured cream, and I think it actually looks like a body lotion or moisturiser product, or perhaps something similar to baby lotion although it is slightly thinner than this. The creamy Body Wash has a glossy look to it and it squeezes easily from the bottle onto my flannel or bath scrunchie.
I cannot say that I have found the Body Wash produces an abundant lather when it is applied to the skin, nor is their any real foam-like substance formed which would provide a rather luxurious feel. Instead, the creamy solution feels rather 'slicked' although there is nothing unpleasant to be found in the product's consistency or texture. I have tried using the Body Wash as a sort of 'Bath Foam' product, by pouring a little of the creamy liquid underneath a running tap and this performed better in terms of the lather produced, allowing a foam-like layer of gentle bubbles to settle on the surface of the bathwater. I liked the fact that the product could be used this way as it made it feel slightly more versatile than other Body Wash products that I have used before.
The Body Wash feels very creamy when applied directly to the skin, much more so than other, similar products that I have used before. This feeling, whilst not unpleasant, made the product feel quite 'heavy' on the skin, although I had no issues with rinsing or removing the product under the shower or with a flannel in the tub. I did find that the cream-like texture of the Body Wash allowed for a rather nourishing feel to be found which is probably down to the creamy, thicker-than-average consistency of it.
The smell of the product is fairly average, although not unpleasant. Being entirely reminiscent of soap, there is a 'powdery' sort of quality lying beneath the soap-like fragrance that is quite pleasant and actually reminds me, again, of baby lotion. The scent is pleasant enough, although I could never confess to being blown away by it. Certainly, it is not fragrant or attractive enough to warrant me repurchasing the product at full price.
The scent is so subdued that it cannot be detected easily after use; a short time later, the scent has been completely overtaken by other products, even 'quieter' ones such as deodorant will easily overtake the powdery fragrance. This is not necessarily a negative point, and certainly nothing that would deter me from repurchasing a particular product in the future. I found that my skin felt thoroughly cleansed after using the Body Wash, without any unpleasant 'tight' feeling to be found on my sensitive skin.
In terms of the "24 Hour Moisture" claims made by the product, the results were slightly more noticeable. There was NOTHING to be found in the way of aggravation or sensitivity to my dry skin, and no noticeable ill-effects to be found to my troublesome eczema, which will flare easily after using any type of products that are harsh. These results led me to believe that the product carries a rather gentle formulation, so full marks from me on that score at least.
The moisturisation properties to be found from the product were impressive too, and I did feel that my skin was softened after use. To be honest, there are not many products that will warrant me skipping out my precious body butters or body lotions from my usual bath-time routine, and the Johnson's Body Wash was no exception to this, so I undertook this daily task as usual. For other consumers however - perhaps those who do not suffer from dry skin in the same way that I do - it may be the case that the Johnson's product provides enough in the way of moisturisation, but this certainly wasn't the case for my own thirsty skin. Also, the little moisturisation I DID notice did not last for 24 hours in my opinion, although again these results will probably vary from user to user, dependant on the condition of the skin prior to use.
In summary, I am glad that I purchased the Johnson's 24 Hour Moisture Body Wash and am even more glad considering the purse-friendly sum that I paid for each bottle. I cannot confess that it is a product that has blown me away however, nor am I even sure that I would buy it again. It was ok, and worked quite well, but that is about as enthusiastic as I can be about it I'm afraid.
As @ the time of writing (August 2012), you can purchase the product in store in branches of Boots where it will cost you around £2, or in branches of Tesco. You can also purchase online at Tesco (www.Tesco.com) where the product will cost you £2.90.
Reason for Usage:
I love creamy hydrating body washes for my dry skin so I got given the end of a bottle of this product by my mum highly recommended from her. She loves Johnson's products so is always recommending me new ones she has tried and particular wanted me to try this one out to help combat my dry skin.
Comes in 2 sizes 250mL and 400mL the bottle my mum gave me was a 400mL white curved bottle with a light baby pink lid. The 400mL bottle is pretty big and the curves mean it isn't easy to hold in the shower. Flip lid opens easily and does not seem to have become sticky or broken over time. Blue and dark pink writing on the front with yellow bubbles in the left hand corner. The product dispenses easily from the top.
On the front - "Specially for dry skin. Turn your shower into 24 hours of softness."
On the back - "Johnson's 24 Hour Moisture Extra-Rich Body Wash is so moisturising, it can turn your shower into 24 hours of beautiful softness. The silky smooth texture combines conditioners and a natural moisturiser to help: reduce skin tightness, reduce skin flakiness, refresh dull looking skin. Use everyday for noticeably soft, smooth skin."
Price and Availability:
Widely avaliable in chemists and supermarkets.
Retails for 250mL -approx £2 and for 400mL approx £2.50-3.
This product come out as a thick smooth white creamy liquid and has a gentle perfumed smell which is light and pleasant like the majority of their baby range products.
The liquid comes out of the bottle easily and a small amount on a shower puff produces a good amount of lather enough to coverall of my body. While being rubbed into my skin it feels soft and creamy and the light scent makes it a pleasure to apply.
After rinsing my skin feels clean with no trace of any residue and on drying my skin feels soft and certainly moisturised. I have no tightness afterwards and could wait to put my moisturiser on if I desired. The scent lasts on your skin but not for as long as some of the other body washes I have tried.
My skin generally isn't flaky so I can't comment on Johnson's claims that it reduces this characteristic. My skin looks clean after use but I certainly wouldn't notice any refreshing or brightening qualities that the product statement is trying to get at.
Considering the 24 hours of moisture statement - I don't need to reapply my moisturiser until my next shower but then I don't have to with most the good shower creams I have used so it is difficult to evaluate their claims without me neglecting to put on my moisturiser which just wouldn't happen unfortunately.
I experienced no irritation or redness with this product.
We got this in a Johnson's pack with other shower gels as part of a promotion and this one looked the most appealing and attractive out of all of the bottles so this is what i used first.
It is very thick for a body wash and I felt you have to squeeze the bottle 2 times for it to lather up and is very soapy and it claims to keep your skin moisturized for 24 hours but I would never not put my other moisturizer on with or without using this product because my skin felt very dry after I had used it.
It has a very nice and subtle smell like flowers and is pink in colour and afterwards it did not make the skin itch or go red unlike others.I think the scent of it fades very quickly after washing and then i feel it was a waste.
My family said how soft my skin looked although it didn't feel soft to me that was disappointing the price of it not sure because we got it in a pack but I do know it is readily available online and in the shops and generally Johnson's baby is always at an affordable price so this should be to.
This is the latest shower gel that I have been using and since the contents of the bottle are pretty much gone I finally feel entitled to give my opinion.
----- Formats and prices -----
Johnson's 24 Hour Moisture Extra-rich Body Wash comes in a 400ml bottle, which is similar to the one pictured above, and costs £2.99 It is possible to buy smaller 250ml bottles but these, from what I noticed can only be purchased as part of a set. The bottle design is simple with pink flip top lid. The body wash was developed specifically for dry skin and is supposed to reduce skin flakiness and tightness and make it look less dull.
There are three body wash choices in this range: original, extra-rich and relaxing.
----- Body wash - my experience -----
It says on the bottle that it combines conditioners and natural moisturizers. From a look at the ingredients list, there is nothing natural in this product except for glycerine and water. The texture is very rich and tick, reminds me more of cream rather than shower wash. It is so thick that it doesn't come out of the bottle unless you squeeze it and the blob of product that comes out is far too generous.
I didn't particularly like this texture and once I had used about 1/3 of the contents I added some water to the body wash to make it more comfortable to use. The body wash is white in colour and produces a thick lather which is very soft to touch. Even after adding the water to thin it down, it still lathers very well and feels luxurious, rich and soft. Although I feel that I'm washing myself with cream, this product doesn't leave a greasy feeling at all.
What I usually expect from a body wash is to have a great scent that would gently sit on my skin. The smell of this product unfortunately is disappointing. It is very average, unexciting, soapy kind of fragrance. It doesn't stay on the skin, which for me is good as I don't want to smell of it.
Finally the biggest claim of Johnson's product - 24 hour moisture. I noticed that my skin became softer and more moisturized (no more flakiness), but not to the point that is advertised by Johnson & Johnson.
I still need to use a proper moisturizer after each shower; otherwise my skin becomes tight and itchy. So in my simple logic - why would I bother buying a moisturizing body wash if it doesn't make much of a difference?
I think this product would be enough for normal and slightly dry skin, but not sufficient for dry and very dry skin, like mine. Bearing in mind the extra-rich formula is supposed to be even more moisturizing than standard, I think it is not good enough.
----- Pros: -----
* Gentle, doesn't irritate skin
* Rich lather, pleasant showering experience
* Can be used by females and males as the scent is neutral
* No paraben and other allergenic ingredients
----- Cons: -----
* Very average smell
* Doesn't moisturize dry skin enough
* More expensive than other high street brands
* Too tick, difficult to apply
* Not a lot of natural ingredients
----- Final thoughts -----
I would rate this body wash as satisfactory but personally will not be purchasing again. Would I recommend? I would recommend for people with normal to slightly dry skin, but not to people with very dry skin problems, as I don't feel the product is moisturising enough.
I am really surprised that this hasn't got a higher star rating. This is my favourite product and I love it so much I could be a sales person for Johnson's Body Care.
I love scented bath foam, body washes and shower creams but my skin doesn't.
I had my nephew who was 8 months old at the time staying with me. I had picked up a bottle of Johnson's baby bath for him and after I have dried him off and put him into his pyjamas I noticed that the skin on my hands was exceptionally soft. So that was how I became hooked on baby bath!
On going to replace the finished bottle I noticed that they sold an adult version. I tried this out and loved it too, no irritation again. I have now progressed even further and I am using their Deep Hydrating 24 Hour Moisturizing Wash, which is even more softening and silky that the extra rich. I find the scent nicer too.
My 3 kids (all in their teens) have plenty of nice scented body washes but it is my beloved Johnson's body wash that seems to disappear very quickly. My son's Lynx body wash that he has been faithful to for years appears not to have gone down in a very long time! I wonder why?
You can often find these on special offer at the larger supermarkets. I tend to stock up when they are BOGOF.
Tesco have got in on special offer now until 19/01/10
Usually £2.69 now £1.34
I am sure that most of us try to keep our skin soft, supple and well hydrated and as time goes by this becomes quite a challenge.
During my teenage years my skin was greasy and it stayed fairly oily until I reached my forties, then it seemed to undergo some startling changes. My once oily skin was beginning to look dry and in need of nourishment and this was when I started to look for bath or shower products that would rejuvenate my skin and make it look as fresh as it could.
I have tried countless body washes, some I get along well with and some get stuffed into the drawer after one wash.
I have to say that I am a fan of the Dove Pro Age range and also the Simple Nourishing body wash.
One of the downsides of body washes has to be the price tag, I find that they seem to average about £3 a bottle. Granted the contents of the bottle do go a long way but without sounding cynical I am sure that the manufacturers have realised that we are willing to pay that little extra bit extra if our skin will benefit.
Johnson's have to be one of the most respected names, they have produced first class skin care products for all ages for years. Speak to any young Mum and I am sure that they will have used something from the Johnson's range.
The Johnson's baby powder has an unforgettable smell and I use it regularly.
The Johnson's 24 hour moisture extra rich body wash ( what a long title!) comes in at an average price, I paid £2.99 for a 400 ml bottle.
The plastic flip top bottle is undeniably Johnson's, the lily white plastic with the soft pastel pink top and the makers name written across the bottle in that familiar navy blue font.
More often than not shower wash bottles are designed for easy hold but this bottle is quite wide and it does use the entire span of my hand to clasp the bottle properly.
But to be totally fair the plastic has no slippery sheen.
This Johnson's 24 hour body wash is especially formulated for dry skin and Johnson's proudly announce on the back of the bottle that the body wash will help flaky skin, make skin feel less tight and bring life back to skin that is looking dull and dreary .
The body wash is thick and creamy with a `pearly` appearance and it flows out of the bottle at just about the right speed.
I was surprised, I expected to smell that `Johnson's ` smell but instead what I could smell was soft, fairly sweet but neither particularly feminine or masculine.
When you pour a drop into your hand you can initially feel a slight stickiness which is soon remedied as the thick lotion hits the water.
A small amount of the Johnson's body wash produces a very good amount of thick, rich and silky lather.
The lather feels goods on the skin but I feel that it lacks that comforting smell that I was semi-expecting it to have.
The rich lather rinses away easily and I have to say that it left my skin feeling very pleasant.
The body wash was gentle and kind to my skin and caused no irritation what so ever.
It is very common for patches of dry skin to itch and I found that the Johnson's body wash seemed to help with that problem.
In all honesty I cannot say that I could still feel the effects of the body wash 24 hours later but I think that would be too much to ask.
I enjoyed using my bottle of Johnson's body wash, as the bottle started to get low it became a bit more difficult to prise the thick liquid out but I soon managed to squeeze the top off and add some water to thin the last of the lotion down so that none was wasted.
I have mixed feelings about the body wash, on the one hand it does the job unquestionably well but I still feel that it lacks fragrance.
Maybe if Mr Johnson were to inject some of that magic and familiar smell into it I would be more tempted to buy a second bottle.
Moisturising body washes are ten a penny these days with many brands competing to offer the best moisturising product on the market. Some brands build themselves on the claim that their product will moisturise while it cleanses (Dove, for example) and others introduce moisturising ranges (Nivea for example). Johnsons are a little different. Primarily thought of as manufacturer's of baby products Johnsons broke through into the mainstream toiletry market a few years back and, riding on their "good enough for baby..." marketing now appear to be a major player in the adult market.
Johnsons 24 hour Moisturising Body Wash is, however, in my opinion, not a patch in terms of performance or quality on the baby products on which the brand built its name.
Smelling somewhat redolent of the traditional Johnsons Baby products the body wash is pleasant enough. Dispensing from the top of a flip-lidded bottle the creamy wash lathers well (particularly if using a body puff) and rinses well to leave the skin feeling clean and slightly scented with a fresh scent but one which, I think, would not be out of place on male or female. The claim of this product is, however, that it moisturises the skin and will keep it thus for 24 hours. Alas I cannot agree.
I did not notice any moisturising properties and whilst my skin did not feel dry and taut it certainly didn't feel moisturised. Compared to the baby washes and oils it was incredibly poor. Compared to the likes of a Dove body wash it really didn't cut the mustard.
I didn't experience any irritation as a result of using this product.
Overall I would say this product is distinctly average. It's not rich and indulgent, it doesn't moisturise particularly and the scent, although pleasant, is not distinctive enough to make you use it for that reason.
At around £2.99 I can think of better products that offer far more.
Having written a review last week about Dove Cream Oil Body Wash, it came to my attention that very few people are actually aware of the risks of limonene and linalool in soaps, deodorants, household scented products and even perfumes... actually, just about every scented product made nowadays contains these two chemicals.
Before I get on with my review on the Johnson's Body Wash [which doesn't contain these two chemicals], I'd like to take the time, and the opportunity, to address the nature of limonene ad linalool.
Limonene, also known as dipentene, is a colourless liquid hydrocarbon that possesses an incredibly strong odour of oranges - the name itself is a derivative of the word 'lemon' because the chemical is contained in the rind of lemons and other citrus fruits. It is used in cosmetics, some medicines, in cleaners and insecticides. It is also being used as a solvent and paint stripper... note that it is also highly combustible.
Limonene is considered a skin and respiratory irritant, and although the chemical is treated as a hazardous waste when it comes time to dispose of it, no long-term studies have been conducted to see what its effects are on humans.
Linalool, also known as linalyl alcohol, linaloyl oxide, p-linalool, allo-ocimenon, dimenthyl and octadien, is a chemical found in flowers and spice plants. A low dosage of linalool in products will give off a sweet floral scent, with a stronger dose smelling slightly woody and much like lavender. Linalool is used in soaps, detergents, shampoos, lotions... and in flea and cockroach insecticides.
A study undertaken on linalool proved that it triggered allergies in people sensitive to perfumes. Unfortunately, linalool isn't only found IN perfumes, therefore a large portion of the population is at risk when using everyday products.
Although I don't break out into a rash when using mild perfumes [strong perfumes give me massive headaches], I am highly allergic to both of these chemicals when they are present in soaps, detergents and cosmetics - including lotions and creams. Not only do I get massive headaches, but I literally break out in rashes that can last as long as a week.
Needless to say that I spend an awful lot of time reading the ingredients on products, and even so, because manufacturers are only legally obliged to mention these two nefarious chemicals when they are present in doses above the recommended allowance, they are often still present... in smaller doses, but just as dangerous to allergy sufferers. Note that even those who are not allergic to these two chemicals should be wary of seeing them on a label because this meanns that the doses contained in the product are above the recommended allowance.
The only 100% safe bodywash I have found, to date, is the Johnson's 24hour Moisture Extra-Rich Body Wash - luckily for me, it still manages to smell nice, and it leaves my skin feeling soft and silky.
Much like Dove's Cream Oil Body Wash, the Johnson's Body Wash is extremely thick and creates a really lovely lather on a shower puff or sponge - going on, it feels soft on the skin - really luxurious.
The bodywash contains skin conditioners and moisturisers that make your skin feel soft and smooth without ever feeling greasy, and the effects really do [like the bottle promises] seem to last 24 hours. My skin never feels tight or dry after using this bodywash.
The scent is extremely delicate, the only description would be that it smells light and flowery... and clean.
Obviously, Johnson's isn't 100% chemical free, but the chemicals it does possess don't trigger any allergies. For those who are interested in the ingredients, here goes:
Aqua - Glycerin - Sodium Laureth Sulfate - Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate - Cocamidopropyl Betaine - Coco-Glucoside - Sodium Chloride - Sodium Isethionate - Polyquaternium-39 - Polyquaternium-7 - Glycol Distearate - Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer - Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer - Polysorbate 20 - Laureth-4 - Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - Disodium EDTA - Citric Acid - Sodium Hydroxide - Sodium Citrate - Sodium Benzoate - Phenoxyethanol - Parfum - CI 47005 - CI 14700 - CI 42090
Let's face it, perfume has become more of a common accessory than a luxury these days, with everyone and their grandmothers spritzing themselves before leaving home every day. Do we really need to add to that the scent of our underarm deodorant, our shampoo and conditioner, our face cream and hand lotion, and even the scent of the soap and fabric conditioner used to wash our clothes?!
For those lucky legions out there who don't suffer from allergies, give some thought to those of us who do and stop splashing those strong perfumes on before leaving the house. You may not smell yourself... but we DO!
I always tend to choose whatever shower gel or wash is on offer when I need a new bottle. The lucky candidate this time was Johnsons 24 Hour moisture extra-rich bodywash. It was on offer in boots for £1.24 for a 400 ml bottle which I thought was very good value. I quite like Johnsons products as I tend to find them good quality. Their moisturisers also tend to be fairly good when I have used them previously. I have used other products in the bodywash range but not this particular product before. This one appealed to me as it says it is 'specially for dry skin', which is a problem that I suffer with. I am hoping that by using this product it will help me a bit with this problem.
The range of products come in similar bottles with just the front label signifying the difference. The bottle is white with a pink lid so you can easilly tell that it is a Johnsons product. It also has the logo on the front, so you know you are going for a well known brand. There is a yellow pattern down the side that also corresponds with a box around 'specially for dry skin', so you know what type of skin the product is for. It also states that it 'will turn your shower into 24 hours of softness'. The bottle size that I purchased was 400 ml so is quite a large bottle. On the back of the bottle is the ingredients of the product. There is also some suggestions of how the product can help with skin tightness, flakiness and refresh dull looking skin. It also says you should use it everyday for 'noticeably soft, smooth skin'.
I used this product in the shower as it is suggested. I always tend to wash my body while I have the conditioner in my hair so that I have time for this to work. I use the lotion all over my body and I also use it to shave my legs with as I think a lot of shaving gels and lotions are a waste of time. The product was easy to dispense. It has a simple flip lid on the top and then you can just squeeze the product out onto your hand. The liquid came out quite thick, which i like as I always feel it will be a better moisteriser. It is aso white sort of colour as you would expect from this sort of product. With it being quite thick you also tend to waste less. With some shower gels it is so runny that i lose half before I even start to apply it.
I personally apply the product with my hands but I can imagine it would also work well with a flannel or puff. I found the feeling of the product nice on my skin. It felt cool and as if it would provide some kind of moisture. I also found the product good for shaving my legs as it stayed on my legs long enough to be able to use it in this way. My legs also felt really smooth after I had used it. When using the product it is an easy to use product that does what it should.
The after effects of the profuct are fairly good. I didn't feel too much of a need to add extra moisturiser after my shower, which was a positive. My skin isn't too dry generally at the moment though so this may help. I am not sure how the product would be for me in the winter when i tend to get very dry skin. I didn't find it astoundingly good and I am not sure the effects do last 24 hours. I normally have been through quite a lot in that time especially with walking around and tube rides etc. Despite this it is still a good product and it does help moisturise the skin. I also think it was very good value for £1.24 and for that price it certainly is worth buying.
Overall a good moisturising body wash that provides good value for money.

If you're like me you love that gorgeous baby smell - no, not the one with the dirty nappy and rusk encrusted face but the cute just washed baby smell! Well, if you like that you'll love this product from Johnson's.
This 24 hour bodywash is designed to keep your skin moisturised for 24 hours (good job that's what it's called then!). It is a moisture rich body wash which you can use every day and provides a decent lather on your sponge. It has a delicate fragrance as you would expect from a Johnson's product and, whilst it keeps your skin moisturised, it isn't greasy like some of this moisture rich products can. When you come out od the bath or shower you feel clean but your skin doesn't feel like it's coated in oil and there's no worry about getting grease stains on your clothes. It is designed to reduce skin tightness and it certainly does that. Overall your skin looks like it's being well cared for and you spend ages looking after it every day. I won't go through the ingredients because I can't say half of them but they include things like Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Chloride, Polysorbate 20 and Sodium Isethionate. I don't lnow what they are but they do the job and make my skin feel good, which can be quite tough as I have really sensitive skin.
The bottle is a nice pale pink colour with Johnson's written in a bold blue and then pale pink and blue writing. It is gently curved and designed to stand up whichever way up it is. It comes in a 400ml bottle and costs about £2.80 although prices amy vary from store to store.
On the whole a fab product.
I don't like Johnson's products at all. I didn't know I didn't and have used them over the years with little thought about them but I don't know about you but as a reviewer you really do become aware of a products good and bad points alot more and take alot more notice of products and this is my conclusion...the brand is overrated!
Over the Christmas period I went out and bought myself lots of new smellies as I was going out alot and wanted some more pampering products as I was planning on lots of loving and partying, not that any of that happened as my relationship fell apart and I didn't much fancy partying after all that trauma but me and my purse had prepared well with anticipation for the party season lol!
I am a bath girl.... however I got through stages I have no time for myself, or actually too much time on my hands. My friends go through demanding phases with me and my feet don't touch the ground from time to time so I'm constantly in a rush to get out somewhere to play with them or/and I'm dating so I do of course use shower products for quickness. However just because I'm having a shower I still want nice fragrance, to feel clean and I like a tad of luxury in the way of some skin softening to go on for me. I'd rather pay a tenner for something good rather a couple of quid for a more everyday shower gel that's mediocre at best. I like to pamper myself after-all and why not!
However when you have a huge shopping list of things you want you either end up not getting stuff or you cut corners slightly and I felt at the time of purchasing this, sure it was cutting corners but I trusted the brand and never felt it was rubbish. Like I say I have had stuff from the range before from way back but never paid alot of attention to any of it but never did I think I'd had something crap as such and actually bought it and looked forward to using it even!
Well the body wash comes in a light pink 250ml bottle with a matching almost see through plastic flip top lid to the top of it which conceals a small integrated hole of which the product dispenses from (of course lol). On the front I'm told that it's Johnson's 24Hour Moisture Extra-Rich Bodywash, specially for dry skin and that it turns your shower into 24 hours of softness and at the bottom in small writing again I'm told it's a Johnson & Johnson product. On the back I'm told a bit about the product, ingredients are listed, there is a bar-code on there along with the recycle symbol being displayed, contact details for Johnson's are given and finally the size is stated. It's a nice enough simple, slightly girly looking bottle (due to the pinkness) but it's does strike me as more of a functional every day product and doesn't make me feel excited as such to use it simply from looking at it lol
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Bottle....
Johnson's 24hour moisture extra-rich gently delivers 24 hour hydration to leave your skin feeling soft all day long.
Well the lotion comes out of the bottle easily enough. It's a white shiny liquid and although it isn't mega thick or anything it has body to it which means you do need to gently squeeze the bottle opposed to it slopping out everywhere so you are completely in control of how much you want to use so it's does appear good quality in that respect and it's simple to dispense your required amount out.
I apply it on a damp body with a scrunchy. It lathers up quickly and releases a slightly floral mixed with fruity smell that's sweet and delicate and not really any distinctive smell comes through. Like I say though this isn't highly fragranced but it is pleasant and although it comes in a light pink bottle it isn't overly feminine and if a bloke wanted to use it I wouldn't think he couldn't because once showered with it only a hint of fragrance (for the short term) is left on the skin anyway.
So it lathers up quickly but then stops suddenly so I do find I need more than usual of this particular product to get clean and create enough lather for me. I find I use rather alot of it actually! However it goes on smooth, it does clean the body and if you want to shave your bits and bobs then fine just make sure you use alot of product so you get a glide going on your skin to avoid nasty nicks and cuts. It rinses off easily leaving no sticky or greasy residue on the skin and when done you simply dry yourself off. Very straightforward to use this lol.
This is a very normal body wash in my view and suitable for an everyday shower as it isn't all that rich. It's easy and fuss free to use and does cleanse the skin in what feels like a very gentle way. It doesn't make me feel overly hydrated or anything and no stickiness is left behind and it doesn't dry any of my skin out and I've certainly noticed no blemishes or anything pop up so it doesn't congest my sensitive skin in any way shape or form. I'm not really that keen on it due to no real fragrance being left on my skin. Sure I feel clean enough but not fresh as such and this says it gives 24 hour hydration, well if it does I don't feel it at all though my skin does feel comfortable enough and not tight or dried out but to be fair but I don't really get that usually with other body washes anyway as a rule.
All in all it's ok and that's that!
I bought mine in Boots costing me £2.99 but do look about for this as I have seen it in pound shops up until recently so if interested do keep your peepers open!
