      LOVE IT

      Johnson's is a beauty brand under the Johnson & Johnson company. As well as being well known and trusted for their extensive baby range, they also have a range of toiletries aimed at adults (mainly women).

      *Product*

      Here we have the Johnson's Extra Care Bath from the Dreamy Skin range. This is a bath cream designed to be used as part of your night time routine. It is proven to help you relax for sleep as it is enriched with a moonflower aroma and an aromasoothe fragrance.

      The bath cream has been specially formulated for those who suffer with dry skin. It contains a small drop of oil and is designed to cleanse your body whilst aiding skin renewal with vitamins and moisturisers. This is supposed to take place overnight.

      *Packaging*

      The bath cream comes in a tall, plastic bottle which isn't see through. The flip top lid allows for easy access even when hands are wet. The bottle is lilac and this blends in well with the corresponding items in the range.

      On the front of the bottle, you will see the Johnson's logo and product name with a small bubble design. The back of the bottle gives you the product blurb, directions for use and contact details for the company.

      The bottle can recycled after use and once opened, you should use this up within 12months.

      *Using*

      The bath cream is dispensed through a medium sized hole under the flip top cap.

      To use, start running your hot water tap and gentle squeeze the bottle at an angle to release a small amount under the running water. I recommend swirling it around the bath.

      *Availability and Price*

      This can be bought in a 400ml size from Boots at £2.75 (currently buy on get one free). I personally bought my 250ml bottle from B&Ms for the small sum of 79p!

      *My Opinion*

      I have been a fan of the Dreamy Skin range since purchasing the moisturiser last year. I trust Johnson's products and have never had any issues with any of them. Generally they are more expensive than store brands, but you do pay for quality. At 79p from B&Ms this was a bargain for me. I regularly use the body lotion in the range but this bath cream has been in my cupboard for a few months whilst I used up others lurking in my overcrowded bathroom. Yes I have about 6 bottles on the go at once which engulf hubbys bottle of Lynx and Boos Thomas bubbles!
      .
      I have been taking more hot, 30min baths recently in a bit to help me relax. I feel stressed out and a back injury from last year has been playing up..I just want to relax! This extra care bath cream promises to help me relax and it is to be used at night time. My most recent encounter with it was last night so here are my views.

      The bottle is relaxing to look at due to its colour and minimal information. It is unfussy and simple yet appealing. I started running my nice clean bath and flipped open the cap. The gorgeous, sweet aroma of moonflower hits you and is so inviting. I could literally sit and sniff the bottle and forget about the bath! Pouring a small amount under the running water, a delicate lilac and fairly thick cream pours out. I swirl it about for a bit and notice it starting to soften and blend in with my bath. My water is really slow at running so I go and do other things for 10minutes. Heading to the bathroom, the delicate scent has evaporated through the flat. We live in a tower so don't have a window in the bathroom.

      Looking into the bath, there is a decent amount of lilac bubbles gently floating on the surface of the water. Where the taps are, a huge mound of bubbles has formed and the water looked so pleasant that I didn't hesitate and hopped in..well I did take my clothes off first cause it ain't that brilliant lol!

      Jumping the bath, I was overwhelmed by the softness. Underneath the bubbles, the water had changed to a bluey colour. I was able to stay in the bath for 30mins and it was a very relaxing and soothing 30mins. Unlike some of my other fruity bubble baths, the Dreamy Skin didn't attempt to wake me up and get me motivated. The sweet aroma slowly faded and my the end of my bath I was left with a floral aroma floating around. The layer of bubbles had disintegrated early on but the mound near the tap remained even after I had run the water away.

      The bath cream can also be used as a body wash and I took full advantage of this, I didn't see any point in spending 30mins in a moonflower bath to wash myself down with Soap and Glory! The lilac cream lathered up better than I expected and a little went a long way. It rinsed off well and my skin was touchably soft and smelling delicious.

      You do have the option to layer this scent up with the body lotion or cream. I have used a small amount of the body lotion after using this in my bath as too much and the scent would be overpowering. Working together through the night, the bath cream and body lotion allowed me to wake up with softer skin than if I hadn't worn them. I have used the bath cream without the lotion too and although the results were not as soft, it was still noticable.

      I do use this mainly at night time but I also use it during the day if I have some me time and generally just want to relax. It works well to soothe my mind and body and I feel like I can forget about the stress for a bit and chill out.

      The next time I am in B&Ms, I hope they have this still at 79p as for an excellent quality product, this is fantastic value.

      Thanks for reading :)

        another great product from johnsons as always

        I saw Johnsons dreamy skin extracare bath on special offer, it was £2 when it normally retails around £3. I have tried johnsons products over the years and have always found them good, lets face it if it's certain are good enough for baby's skins then johnsons are ok by me (this is not a baby product by the way!).
        The product comes in a lilac coloured bottle of 400mls with standard flip top lid, easy to use and easy to squeeze. The gel itself is also lilac in clouor and apparently (according to the bottle) aromasmoothe with moonflower and has a drop of oil. It smells great, very relaxing I am unsure of what moonflower smells like so can't say how acurate it is, but it is lovely. The drop of oil can not be noticed as in you don't skid around your bath, but the gel does make your skin feel soft and smooth into the next day as it states it will. The smell however doesn't last as long as I would like. It says it will help you unwind and drift off to sleep better which I do feel it does, and I personally will look out for other products within this range.

        Ready for bed!!

        I love products designed especially for night time, and this is my absolute favourite night time bubble bath. It makes me feel a bit snoozy just sniffing the liquid now! It's perfect for a warm, luxurious bath before bed.

        The product comes in a light lilac bottle, and is called 'dreamy skin'. The writing on the front of the bottle tells you to 'prepare to sleep and awaken to beautiful skin', and I'll tell you, do just that! The product itself is very light lilac, and smells beautiful before you even put it in the bath. I can't describe the smell, it says on the front it is 'Aromasoothe with Moonflower', whatever that is.

        Squirt the product into the bath whilst it is still running, you only need a few squirts to get a decent amount of bubbles. Shut the door whilst it's running so that the steam from the bath intensifies the aroma! It really does just make your bath smell lovely. It also has a drop of oil in it, so that is suitable for dry skin, which I love, so your skin is just that bit more cared for. I can't say I really noticed a particularly moisturising effect, but then I never do with any bath product. It didn't irritate my skin at all though. The smell is so relaxing, so is perfect for before bed, just don't fall asleep in the bath!

        As long as you don't use a shower gel/soap with too strong a smell (better yet, use the dreamy skin shower gel), then the smell still should be lightly on your skin, and I really think the smell relaxes me, so I slip off to sleep a little more easily. I hope this review was helpful, thanks for reading!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        5*

        Johnsons Dreamy Skin Extracare Bath Body Wash is one of the many items from Johnsons extensive range.

        I received the Dreamy Skin Bath Body Wash as part of a pamper kit that I purchased.

        The Packaging

        Dreamy Skin Bath Body is presented in a beautiful purple purlescent bottle with a flip top which is unusual for bubble baths. The label states that is specially designed for dry skin - I guess this is why oil is included within the formula. It also states that you can 'Prepare to sleep and awaken with beautiful skin'. So great for people who find it difficult to get to sleep after a hectic or busy day.

        Dreamy Skin Extracare Bath is currently on offer at half price for just £1.37 for a 400ml bottle at the time of writing this review.

        This product reminds me of the Johnsons Baby Bedtime bath that is also available but this time for grownups.

        It does not have the fragrance of lavender that most night time relaxants have which is refreshing as not everybody is into that. It is enriched with moonflower which contains relaxing properties that has a very delicate fragrance.

        You do not have to use much of the product to produce lots of soft creamy bubbles. Just pour under a hot running tap and agitate the water a little. The liquid is purple in colour and has the consistancy of body lotion. A bath in Johnsons Dreamy Skin will leave you relaxed enough to help aid a good nights sleep if used as part of your nightly regime.

        This is a product that I would not necessarily have chosen if I did not receive it as part of a kit but now I know how great it is this will definately replace my usual bubble bath.

        recommend

        Johnson's Dreamy Skin Extracare Bubble Bath for me i love this range! I first tried this product when it first came out and it was on special offer. I had a quick sniff from the bottle and thought the smell was gorgeous. It's quite a mouth watering, sweet sensual smell which i could see myself relaxing to in a nice hot bath.

        Later that evening i ran a nice hot bath poured a little in and let the bubbles appear. The smell of the bubble bath was really lovely so calming but not too over powering. After my bath my skin felt so soft even my partner commented on how soft my skin was. The smell of my bath stayed with me for a while to.

        The info which is given on the bottle by Johnsons about the product is:
        Sleeptime is the ideal time for the body to unwind and renew. Taking a warm bath with Johnson's Dreamy Skin Extracare Bath is clinically proven to help you drift off to sleep better. This rich, velvety soft regenerative formula with nourishing vitamins helps skin's renewal while you sleep.

        All in all i recommend this product for a lovely relaxing bath soak to help you unwind and helps make you have soft skin as a bonus.

        I wish I could say it worked!

        I've been really stressed out of late and I do believe that I can go a long way to curing my feelings by generally taking care and being kind to myself. I haven't been sleeping or eating properly and I felt close to having a breakdown. All over Christmas and New Year I was as down in the dirt more so than I have ever been. I see a councillor (as I have eating disorder) and even he was worried about it. I could barely speak for two weeks and every time I went to say something I just wailed like an injured banshee. I felt awful, had headaches, was hungry (but couldn't eat) and I was in a horrible place which was a vicious circle it took me hard work to get out of mentally.

        I did sort myself out by buying some Bach rescue products which are homeopathic. I bought soothing oils and lotions, camomile tea and even air fresheners with lavender in them. I started to eat some fresh fruit and drink water to wash vitamins down me and gradually I got there slowly. I do believe in pampering yourself when your down though it is very difficult I do understand that of course. Even going shopping to get items was a trauma for me and I was knackered and emotional but I achieved it and that in itself is an achievement lol

        So I bought lots of new smellies. Sure I own plenty I am the first to admit but I wanted things especially to help my soothe my mind and jangling nerves and that's when I came across this product in Boots.

        The Packaging:

        400ml lilac plastic bottle with a screw on/off lid situated at the top of it. On the front I'm told it's Johnson's, Dreamy Skin, Extracare Bath 'with a drop of oil', Specifically for dry skin with moonflower. Then there is like a swirl pattern in purple and white and on that I'm told to prepare to sleep and awaken to beautiful skin. Then at the bottom of the bottle the size is stated (as I've listed already) and I'm told it's a Johnson & Johnson product and all of this is written in dark blue and dark pink writing. On the back I'm told a bit about the product, ingredients are listed, there is a bar-code, the recycle and size are on there and finally there are contact details given for Johnson & Johnson. It's a nice calming looking bottle actually. Smart enough and looks like a functional product of decent quality rather than pretty to look at or anything.

        A Bit About The Product (According To The Back Of The Bottle):

        Sleeptime is the ideal time for the body to unwind and renew. Taking a warm bath with Johnson's Dreamy Skin Extracare Bath is clinically proven to help you drift off to sleep better. This rich, velvety soft regenerative formula with nourishing vitamins helps skin's renewal while you sleep.

        Using It:

        Well I add some under running bath water. I can't specify an amount you simply add what you think is enough. It comes out of the bottle easily but in blobs as it's quite a thick, rich, glossy lilac cream opposed to running out easily. I then, to get it mixed into the water properly swish my hand about in it a bit. I then leave it and when I get back I am greeted by water with a hint of lilac and a few white bubbles though nothing major. Of course if you add more product you get more colour in the tub and more bubbles.

        The smell is very pleasant. Sweet and creamy and I expected a lavender smell due to the colour of the packaging (but never got that). Well I have no idea of what the smell is and still after looking at the ingredients which are listed on the back of the bottle to help me write this review there is nothing on there that would tell me what the smell is meant to be. It smells like a light blend of flowers but as I said the most distinctive thing about this is that it's pleasantly and not overpoweringly sweet and quite creamy. It isn't a harsh smell or anything and in my view is suitable for men women and kids to use if desired.

        When I get in the water it is soft enough. It isn't overly so or terribly moisturising or greasy and it doesn't dry my skin out either. The bubbles pretty much disappear after half an hour of being in the bath and your left really with a rather dull looking water but the fragrance holds till you've finished bathing. Use your ordinary bath and body products, shave legs whatever you normally do as this won't interfere with any of that and if you splash your hair with it by accident it doesn't dry it out!

        When I get out of the bath and pat myself dry I'm not left with softer skin than usual and even the morning after using it I don't feel any different to be honest. Yes I feel fresher and cleaner of course due to having a bath anyway but that's that really. For me it's nothing special.

        Overall:

        Does it give you a relaxing bath and/or make you sleepy? No is the short answer, it doesn't me. I mean I'm quite happy and relaxed to have a bath with pretty much anything in it anyway and this doesn't give me any more benefits than anything else I use. It certainly didn't make me feel sleepy. Really I'm a bit confused to what it is meant to achieve really as I didn't feel any effects. Dreamy skin implies and from what the bottle says that it's meant to give me renewed skin by morning...no not at all. Sleep didn't come but the relaxation part always does with a bath for me anyway. I'd say this. If you have trouble relaxing and sleeping and don't mind with parting £3.99 (in all good stores) then sure it's worth a go. It's not like it's not a perfectly nice bath product but just don't expect a miracle and you won't be disappointed!
