A few weeks ago I decided to spend the weekend at my dads house - which I think you'll b able to tell requires quite a few bags of clothes and other items. But stupidly because Id packed so much other stuff I forgot my beloved face cream which I personally dont like going without before I go to bed. So I improvised and used my Johnsons Dreamy Skin body lotion and I was amazed that it made my skin feel better than any face cream has ever managed before so I got thinking wouldnt it be great if they made this cream exactly the same but for your face and Im very happy to report I found out they do - 'Johnsons Dreamy Skin Face Lotion' which I admit I bought a tub of as soon as I got back from my weekend away and Ive been using it ever since!
Price: I found this for just 99p - although that price will vary depending on stockist.
Stockists: Amazon & I found this in the 99p Store so I guess it is also available in Poundland.
Other Info: This cream is designed for using at night - due to the ingredients having sleep inducing properties BUT Ive been using this in the day as well and I think it works just as great either way.
The packaging for this cream fits in very well with the rest of the Dreamy Skin range as it is the same light lilac colour and for some reason the colours used actually make me think of relaxing and drifting off to sleep. The tub contains 250ml of cream and is a very heavy glass design - my one issue. Now while I havent had a problem yet I assume if you were drop this is would break very easily which makes me not want to use this on the move just in case - although it hasnt actually happened yet so I cant complain I suppose. Also I would have preferred this to be in a tube rather than a tub - thats just a personal matter of hygeine though - I just would have preferred a bottle or tube design. The top of the tube has the usual twist off lid which is also lilac in colour and seems very secure to me - I havent had a problem with it breaking or leaking as yet anyway so Im happy. On the tub (and box this comes in) is all the necessary information - directions for use, claims, ingredients etc so any questions you have should be answered there - if not there is an address you can write to with additional comments. An effective and pleasant design - just maybe not the most hygenic tub.
The cream itself is very simple to use - apply it after cleansing and toning just before bedtime and apply it all over your face and neck - like you would apply a normal night cream to be honest. Its better if you apply it right before you go to bed as then you will get full effect of the sleep inducing properties. The cream itself is a light lilac in colour and Id say is just the right consistency - it feels thick when you scoop some from the tub but then once its on my face it feels much lighter so I dont have that greasy/sticky feeling as Im falling asleep! Less is more with this cream in my opinion - using too much means it wont sink in as quickly and I dont think the results would be as good so if you use a really small amount you will get better results and the tub will last much longer.
The cream is said to be scented with lavender and moonflower but to be honest I cant detect either fo those scent - this smells really fruity and floral I think so the scent is right my my street - even though it doesnt linger on my skin for very long. Now even though this is quite fragranced I think it will be fine for people will sensitive skin as Johnsons are usually very good with senstive skin. I have quite funny skin on my face that usually reacts to new or perfumed products and I havent had that problem with this one yet so thats another added bonus for me. Now Im not 100% sure this does have sleep inducing properties - dont get me wrong this does help me relax and fall asleep much faster when I have applied this BUT I think thats more to do with this has become part of a wind dowm routine over the last few weeks. Whether the ingredients actually would make me fall asleep if I wasnt tired Im not sure but I definitely relax so much once Ive applied this so I suppose to an extent it does work.
I have no issues to whether this helps to soften and moisturise my skin though because for my skin this has been the best night cream or any face cream for that matter that Ive ever used. This makes my skin feel hydrated and softer as soon as I apply it and my skin is always glowing in the morning when Ive used this the previous night. This feels light on my skin as soon as I apply it but its thick and nourishing enough to make my skin feel amazing without being greasy or shiny the next day. I cannot recommend this highly enough and I hope this will be a cream Johnsons continue making forever - thats how long I hope to be using it for anyway.
Thanks For Reading.

I thought I would try this as I generally like Johnson's skincare products and it was on offer for £3.99. The packaging is very clear on the product, and I likes the sound of the Aroma sooth Moonflower feature.
I like the fact that this comes in a glass jar as well.
I think this product is actually rather good, I woke up the next morning and I could definitely tell an improvement in my skin. It felt smoother and well nourished, and I definitely think my skin looked better too. Since then, I've regularly used this and the skin wipes from the same Johnson's range.
I would recommend this product as essentially it does what it says on the packaging and it smells really nice too. I've also started using the Johnson's day moisturiser as I was so impressed with their dreamy skin range, and can report back that this is also brilliant.
I bought this product mainly because it was cheap if i'm honest, it was on offer in boots, 2 for £4, so i thought hey, why not? I bought it with a day cream, which was also very good.
This comes in a box, which tells you all the information about the product, and inside is a glass jar with a pink lid, it's all very simple, no gimics, but it does what it says on the tin.
This was really good value for money, at 2 for £4 in boots, or £3.99 for one, considering many facial moisturisers are at least £10 or more. It's a really great product too, just proves that it doesn't have to be the most expensive roduct on the market to show results.
The product itself is quite a thick white cream, as soon as you put it on your face it feels very moisturised instantly, my skin improved after just one night of wearing this, dry patches were none existant, my skin wasn't oily, and my spots looked visibly reduced... sounds too good to be true right?? One thing that worried me about this product was that it contained perfume, it's a well known fact that perfume is not good for your skin, however this does not seem to have effected my skin at all. I think this is one of the best products i have ever used, and certainly one of the cheapest.
This product is really good for the price, it works best on normal type skin, so i would recommend it to anyone who fits the description :) oh and i just realised that i missed out the fact that i have very sensitive skin and this product has not irritated it at all so it's good for sensitive skin too :)
Johnson's is part of the Johnson and Johnson company. Aswell as being well known for their range of baby products, they also make some products mainly aimed at the ladies. This includes suncare, facecare and bodycare. The choice is endless and Johnson's promoted themselves as selling quality products.
**Product and Range***
Dreamy Skin is Johnson's night range for ladies. The range includes :
The products in this range have been created to be used before bedtime. They all contain an Aromasoothe technology and are scented with a Moonflower aroma. Moonflower is known for its relaxing properties allowing this to be ideal to use before jumping into bed. The different products can be used alone or together.
This review will concentrate on the facial moisturiser or to give it its full name Johnson's Dreamy Skin Facial Moisturiser.
This is a night cream which is suitable for those who suffer with dry and sensitive skin. It is a rich cream blended with panthenol which is designed to care for your skin. The cream when applied overnight, is also designed to boost your skin with the moisture lost during the day and allows you to wake up with soft and smooth skin.
Like the other products in the Dreamy Skin range, the moisturiser has adopted a soft, lilac colour scheme.
The moisturiser itself comes in a thick, glass jar which is extremely solid and quite heavy. The glass is clear and comes complete with a lilac, screw off lid. Inside there is a foil lid so can you rest assured no one has tampered with it.
The jar itself has some basic information. The Johnson's logo, product name and skin type is on the front alongside a moon logo to confirm this is for night time use.On the back, there is some info about the moisturiser, directions for use and contact details for the company.
The jar also comes in a lilac, cardboard box which is not really neccessary. It shows the same information as the jar itself but in extended terms and also has the ingredients on the base. The box isn't very sturdy and cannot withstand being bashed about without suffering damage.
The box and jar can be recycled. Once the moisturiser is open, it should be used within 12months.
This night cream should be applied in the evening as part of your cleansing routine. It should be massaged into your neck and face area avoiding the eyes and lips.
**Availability and Price**
This moisturiser can be picked up in Tesco and Superdrug for £3.99. This is for a 50m jar. Other products in the range can also be purchased here to compliment the moisturiser.
Up until last year, I had never used a night cream. To be honest, I didn't really take care of my skin and I regret this as I now have often red and very dry skin on my face. I also have sensitive skin and if a product doesn't agree with it, then this can cause massive outbreaks and discomfort so I really have to be careful what I use.
I trust the Johnson's brand and I am sure this is evident considering how many reviews I have done of their products recently. The Dreamy Skin range is my personal favourite. I often struggle to calm myself down at night time and get stressed out which leads to lack of sleep and a very grumpy angelboo in the morning! I have recently incorporated the Dreamy Skin products into my bedtime routine which includes a hot, bubble bath and some pampering of my body and most importantly, my face.
I was first introduced to the Dreamy Skin Facial Moisturiser a year ago. My reason for buying at the time was low price as Asda were selling this at the £2.00 mark. I had yet to try any of the other products in the range and did not know what a moonflower was or what it smelt like so this was completely new to me. The other deciding factor in my buying decision was the colour of the box. The lilac is so inspiring and calming in appearance.
I recently purchased my second jar from Superdrug on a 2 for £4.00 offer which is a bargain. I had ran out of the previous a few months ago and had concentrate on using my No7 night cream but this offer was too good to knock back so I find myself using this every 2nd night. If I have a chance of a hot bubble bath, I go the whole hog and use the Dreamy Skin bath stuff before cleansing my face with the wipes and then using this moisturiser. I do this out of habit now and decided to share my experiences with you all.
Like I said before, the box isn't really neccessary and gets recycled. The jar itself is extra thick and the lid allows me to be confident that it is staying fresh and safe from damage. The design of the jar is uncluttered and simple. It is pleasing to the hand and simple to operate even with damp hands.
Opening the jar, I am met with the gorgeous scent. The Moonflower aroma is sweet but not sickly and wafts out the jar without being encouraged. The moisturiser comes in the form of a rather thick, lilac cream which doesn't run out the jar when tipped upside down.
The cream has a sort of bouncy and spongy effect where when I put my finger in to scoop some out, only a small amount transfers and the rest bounces away from my finger. I have never known this to happen with a moisturiser so this was quite new for me.
After using a wipe to cleanse my face of all dirt and makeup, I allow it to dry and proceed to use this moisturiser. Scooping a tiny amount out of the jar, I notice the thickness of the cream further. It is perfectly soft and cool to the touch. The moisturiser has a luxurious and very expensive feel to it which you don't expect of a £3.99 cream!
Despite the thickness, this spreads over my face with ease. The small amount scooped out is more than enough to cover half my face as it smoothes out well. I feel the aroma gently soothing my senses as the cream soothes my face. I find this moisturiser to be very gentle yet effective on my dry and sensitive skin.
The cream absorbs in very quickly without much need for rubbing. My skin soaks it up well and I have never found there to be any stickiness left after it fully absorbs. I do find though that there is a sort of film sitting on my skin which is ideal for an overnight cream. It is in no way heavy and sits perfectly to work whilst I sleep.
I feel that using the different Dreamy Skin products a short while before going to bed helps my mind to settle. The scent and the results that they give me relaxes me and although I don't immediately drift off, I am not lying awake for hours on end worrying about pointless things. In the morning, I am waking up with softer skin which seems to radiate. The dryness that I experience has been reduced and my skin doesn't feel so rough.
For the small price of £3.99, this moisturiser is amazing and could certainly out run the effects of Dior and Clinique. It works amazingly well, smells gorgeous and is cheap. I would highly recommend it to those on a budget as it is gorgeous.
Thanks for reading :)
After being so impressed with Johnsons day cream I spotted that they had a night cream range too so I decided to try it as it was no harm done to my purse priced at £3.99 and I figured I could trust Johnson as they specialize in babycare so I didn't bother looking at the ingredients. I picked up the one for dry/sensitive skin because my skin is sensitive but it's not oily or dry and if it was going towards anything it'd be dry. They also do a combo/oily one.
The moisturiser is in a cute little 50ml glass pot with a purple lid. The moisturiser has a thick consistensy but not so thick that it's too hard to manage like 'Nivea Creme' and the moisturiser is a light lilac colour. It's heavily fragranced but it's a pleasant feminine scent as the moisturiser is enriched with moonflower, a fragrance known for it's relaxing properties.
It claims to help calm your senses before bedtime for a good nights sleep and the soothing formula also replenishes moisture lost during the day so you wake up to beautiful radiant skin. It also contains Shea Butter & Aromasoothe. It is dermatologically tested.
To use you just massage it into your face after cleansing before bed. Even though it is quite a thick cream it absorbed almost instantly and felt really refreshing and cooling. I was a little worried the fragrance would irritate my skin but it hasn't after 3 weeks of using it my skin is fine. I have noticed myself feeling a bit more sleepy at bed time but it's hard to tell if thats because of the relaxing scent but the moisturiser has made almost a dramatic impact on my skin and it looks a lot more radiant and smooth, it doesn't get rid of wrinkles or anything but is more of a simple basic night cream.
I was really disapointed to find that there's a lot of parabens in the moisturiser and they have also used a lot of unnessesary colourings and fragrances and I can't say I really want to put things like that on my face but it is a lovely refreshing cream thats hydrated my skin without irritating it but it's nothing special really so I will try looking for alternatives. If you just want something basic and cheap and don't mind using parabens then this might be ideal as it has a lovely relaxing fragrance and had made my skin a lot softer and radiant but it is not an anti wrinkle cream.
You can purchase from most Boots & Superdrugs for £3.99
I tried this cream about nine months ago. It has a lovely relaxing smell, and is very smooth and creamy. When applied it is not greasy, and soaked into my skin really easily. Apart from the relaxing element, i could not say that my face felt any different in the morning. It is a lovely cream which is ideal for use when relaxing before bed. Although if you are after a cream soley for its mousturisng benefits, i would propably try something different. But overall for the price, this is an extremely nice moisturiser.
As I get older, I am starting to become more aware of the importance of a decent skin care routine. At 28 I'm a long way off queuing for my pension, but I don't want to look like an old prune before my time.
I came across this product whilst shopping at the supermarket. This is where I buy most of my beauty products from as I find the same products here are much cheaper than they are at Boots. Tesco and Asda are my first choice, but Sainsbury's can have some great offers available too.
I was quite curious when I first saw this cream as I had never heard of Moonflower before.
The cream itself is contained in a 50ml glass jar with a lilac plastic lid. It is a very feminine and friendly packaging design. The only problem with this is that I find the glass jar can be weighty, not a good thing when travelling.
The cream I purchased is designed for normal and combination skin, so I thought this would be great for my skin as I do suffer with the occasional break out.
The cream itself is lilac in colour and the smell of it is absolutely amazing and unlike anything I have ever come across before. It is quite difficult to describe, but to me it smells quite sweet but it has a certain edge which makes it smell quite refreshing. It is also quite a soothing and relaxing fragrance in my opinion.
When applying the cream, the scent is quite strong but I find this fades as the product is absorbed into your skin. It is quite a thick cream but it goes go on quite well.
As this is a night cream, I apply this just before going to bed and after I have cleansed my face of make up. I find that it soaks into the skin very well and quite quickly.
In the mornings, after using this my skin does feel moisturised, but to be honest, I haven't really noticed any great benefits with using this cream. My skin does feel soft in the morning but I'm sure there are better ones out there. This cream certainly doesn't have the wow factor, but I would say it's a pretty good night cream in general and worth trying.
I was in the toiletries aisle in Sainsbury's with my friend when she recommended this moisturiser to me. She said it had a wonderful, relaxing scent and she always woke up with really soft skin whenever she used it. It is priced at £3.98 for 100ml, and I hadn't really used a dedicated night cream before, so I thought I'd give it a go. I chose the normal/combination skin option as I worried that the dry skin variety would be too rich.
Apparently your skin replenishes itself as you sleep, and it is very receptive to absorbing moisturiser as it does so, making night cream quite an important thing to use.
The Dreamy Skin moisturiser comes in a glass pot with a lilac plastic lid, presented in a cardboard box. The box is also lilac, giving a general relaxing, night-time sort of impression. I applied it after using a facial wipe. It is a thick cream, of a pale lilac colour, and it has quite a unique fragrance; certainly relaxing, and quite sweet. Apparently it contains a moonflower scent. It didn't sting my skin at all, and felt quite nice, but didn't absorb terribly well. This doesn't really matter for a night cream.
The morning after using it, my skin didn't feel especially moisturised or soft. I wasn't expecting miracles from the product, but even so, I felt that my normal moisturiser would have achieved better results. Boots Botanics used to produce a moisturising face mask with Marshmallow and Sweet Gale that could be left on overnight, and that made my skin look replenished and smooth and clear (I think it's been discontinued and replaced with a 'honey' one that irritates my face). I was hoping for a similar effect with this, but I felt it did nothing. I used the whole pot, as it didn't harm my skin, but I won't buy it again.
In conclusion, I think this product is a bit of a 'gimmick'; it contains unnecessary colour and fragrance, which isn't a priority with facial skincare, and it didn't absorb particularly well, and didn't improve my skin. It also contains parabens, which are slightly controversial ingredients; and if it's true that the skin is more open to absorbing products at night, then it would be especially important to avoid such ingredients at that time.
