Advantages: Mild and gentle
When it comes to baby products I quickly learnt that there were so many different lotions and potions out therefore from everyday dry skin to nappy rash. The choice was immense and so was the price range! However, I had always seen Johnson & Johnson products as a leader in the field of baby items and I decided to buy from their range of products especially as most places such as Boots tend to have offers on them and they are not over priced either.
My daughter has lovely delicate, soft skin and I want to keep it that way. As with a lot of newborns she has suffered with dry skin albeit it only slightly but in order to keep her skin moisturised and soft I opted to use Johnsons Baby Moisturising Cream as I didn't want to keep applying a lotion as they are quite thin in substance whereas a cream is a lot thicker and easier to apply to a wriggling baby!
** History **
Johnson & Johnson is a brand name we are all familiar with and so we should considering the company is over 100 years old (founded in 1886 to be exact). The company was originally started by two brothers (Edward and James) and they were later joined by their older brother Robert. They were the first company to sell commercial mass produced sterile surgical dressings and sterile sutures. Eventually the company branched out into baby products and Johnsons Baby Cream is one of the products created in the early 19th century and it is still being produced today.
** Packaging **
Johnsons Baby Moisturising Cream comes in a medium sized 100ml white tube with a plastic screw on top. The only colour on the plain white tube is the Johnsons signature logo in blue together with the item name. In the middle of the tube it has Johnsons usual logo which features a pink ribbon with "mildness" written on and also the words "clinically proven" at the top and bottom of the pink ribbon - this is on all Johnsons products where they are delicate and mild for the skin. On the back there is the usual information about the ingredients and what the product actually is. All the text on the tube is in blue.
** Product Itself & Use **
The cream is pure white in colour and has a lovely mild, almost baby powder scent to it which is perfectly pleasant and certainly not strong or overpowering. I do find that most baby lotions and creams all seem to have that baby scent, if that makes sense! The delicate aroma soon vanishes once the cream is rubbed onto the skin.
The consistency of the cream is quite thick and doesn't have an oily feel to it at all which is good as the last thing I want to happen is my daughter to have a greasy feel to her skin. I soon found that a little of the cream does go a long way and I simply apply it onto my finger tips and then directly onto her skin and gently massage it in. I found that the moisturising cream was quickly absorbed into the skin and there was no residue left behind at all. After about a minute the skin feels as if nothing has been on it whatsoever which is great as it has all be absorbed.
I have been using the Johnsons Baby Moisturising Cream for about two weeks now and her dry skin has soon disappeared which may of course of done so without using the cream! However, it's nice to use the cream to give her a soothing massage and to spend a bit of time with her while she is awake as just like most newborns she tends to sleep most of the day! Having a thicker cream is certainly easier to apply than a lotion as it isn't as thin in consistency and the moisturising cream certainly won't slip through your fingers. I tend to use this cream generally when she has her nappy changed and I apply it to her legs, feet, arms and legs.
I've even started to use it as a moisturiser before applying my foundation and my skin quickly absorbs it and makes a great base for foundation. I also suffer with dry and sometimes sensitive skin and I haven't had a reaction to it and my dry skin has certainly started to clear up. I've spent years trying to find a cream which will keep my dry skin under control and I think I've found the perfect cream!
** Price & Availability **
Johnsons Baby Moisturising Cream is available both online and in stores such as Boots (£1.05). I bought mine at Tesco for £0.95p which I think is an absolute bargain.
** Overall **
I am really impressed with this cream. It is quickly absorbed and doesn't leave any residue behind and gently moisturises the skin for both mother and baby! The delicate aroma is perfectly pleasant but doesn't linger around which is a shame but that is hardly a problem. I would definitely recommend it to all.
Summary: An great moisturising cream for all
