I use a wide range of different types of body lotions and I like the Johnsons range a lot. It is a brand I trust and I have used it since I was in my teens. Boots are currently selling the 24 hour body moisturising cream for £2.99 for a 200g pot. This is a cream I have used more times than I care to remember and I am never without a pot. I go through loads of it. That is not to say that it is not economical, as it is, it simply means that I use it a lot.
I use this as a base if I am going to be applying a fake tan as it really does add moisture to the skin and prevents the tan from streaking. I use it all over, arms legs, hands, neck and even my face (not forgetting my tummy).
The texture is quite thick and it almost feels like it has been whipped. The smell is gorgeous and it lingers on the skin for ages after it has been applied. Though it is thick and creamy, it nevertheless does not make the skin feel greasy and it melts into the skin as soon as it has been applied, allowing me to be able to get dressed almost immediately.
It comes in a nice looking little pale pink pot, which looks very girly and when new, it has a silver foil under the lid, meaning that it stays nice and fresh before you are ready to use it. A pot of this usually lasts me about four months then I am ready to buy another.
It does what it says and keeps my skin feeling soft and moisturised for a day after I have used it.
I definitely recommend it and it is excellent value for money.
I do consider myself to be somewhat of an expert on body lotions these days, as I have tried so many, I really know what I am looking for in a lotion although I like to try new ones, the ones that impress me go on the repurchase list.
The Johnson's body care 24 hour moisture body cream comes in a 200ml pot with a label on the top that notes its key ingredient, shea butter which is mighty popular these days when it comes to skin creams. The pot is white with a pink plastic lid and when you first open it there is a foil seal on the top of the lid keeping the cream fresh. Inside, the lotion is white and ready to be scooped out.
I bought this primarily to tackle the fading stretch marks on my tummy, the result of having two children close together quite recently. I also began using it on my arms and legs as I liked it so much and felt it sank in quickly.
This really ranks high in my opinion, firstly because it smells like an expensive perfume on the skin and secondly because the texture is just perfect. It's not thick like a body butter nor is it too thin and runny. When I rub it in it just sinks in to the skin and leaves no greasy residue. I like to apply this under jeans or trousers at the beginning of the day and feel it is doing a great job whilst I get on with things. The moisturiser's selling point is that it works on your skin for 24 hours and I think I agree with this, I definitely don't feel like I need to use this twice in one day and I do with some other moisturisers that just seem to disappear or the opposite problem with really thick body butters that just sit on top of the skin and don't sink in, they just wear off on your clothing!
A 200g pot costs £3.05 at Boots at the moment.
The pot doesn't look like a lot when you consider it's for the body but I find it economical to use and even with daily use this pot will last me a few weeks. I really like this and will definitely buy it again in the future, it is everything I am looking for in a body moisturiser and in a fix I'd even use it on my face if I needed a quick fix. The lotion definitely has a perfumed smell to it, fortunately it's one I like and think it would even pass off as a perfume if you wafted past someone! I am happy to recommend this as a great buy and will treat myself to another pot when this one has gone.
PS. (UPDATE) This pot lasted me nearly 12 months in the end as I started using another product but when I returned to it (now finished) I remembered how much I loved using it. Still top of its game!
