I discovered Johnson’s Baby Oil back in the 90ies when I was a teenager and couldn't get much use of it. However, I can confess that now being twice as old I am not fond of this oil either.
It is too greasy and oily for the oil (forgive my tautology). I mainly used Johnson’s Baby Oil on my legs since the skin was driest there and the results saddened me. It felt like I was massaging real oil (like olive oil or sunflower oil) into my skin because it did not absorb well and had to be dried out using a paper towel. Moreover, the greasiness was difficult to get rid of. I always ended up with the greasy bottle as well while applying its contents. The scent of the oil nauseated me a little being sickly sweet and synthetic. The oil did moisturise skin however all the rest was too much a bother to use it. The price was also appealing thus I had given this product several tries more before giving up on it eventually.
Would you recommend this product?

You need to use natural oils not petroleum based on for the to be absorbed by your skin - olive oil would have been better

Dear catsholiday,
You are totally right! I am not very attentive ingredients chapter reader and that was my mistake in the Jonson's Baby oil case.
Thank you for your comment! I will seek for natural ingredients
