I use this Johnson’s Baby Oil on my nephew and it squirted out a handful in to my palm and then i applied it on to my nephews skin, it is easy to use but very oily and doesn't absorb into the skin rather it just stays on top of the skin, i do agree that it does make baby's skin smooth, soft but it is oily and it also has a nice scent to it that stay for quite some time. i sometime use this on my legs due it being dry and i do feel it being moisturized but not as well as i had hoped. overall i really love the scent and how smooth my skin feels afterwards.
I only used this product once and I find it hard to use the oil from this bottle. If I can not get enough first time I will make a mess around, It not absorbs into the skin fast, so it stays on and need to wait to get into the skin. My bottle got oily first time I used and after it is not nice and appealing for m to use it again.
- 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.
