- oily and greasy
- overpowering sickly sweet smell
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.
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
