From when I was a child, I always used to get a few drops of Johnson’s Baby Oil in my bath, and it’s something I still do as an adult, especially in winter. And while I often try bath oils and massage salts etc, I always come back to this staple as it’s gentle, affordable and has loads of uses. It also has a mild, non-irritating formula and effectively seals in moisture when it’s applied to damp skin.
For starters, it smells great and absorbs well, but more than just a bath oil to soften skin, here are some other uses for Johnson’s Baby Oil:
1. It’s a great skin moisturiser
After your bath or shower, apply to your skin for smoothness (and no “oil slick” feeling). It’s especially good for elbows, knees and heels.
2. It’s a hair defrizzer
I only tried this when I read about it on a beauty blog – the thought of putting oil in my hair was not an appealing one. But if you use a tiny amount, it won’t drag your hair down and is pretty good for a shine too.
3. It’s good for massage
Smoothing and safe for baby, and great for you too.
4. It softens cuticles
If I have to get another lecture from a beautician about my dry cuticles, I might weep. Someone recently recommended baby oil, which seems to be preventing me from further lecturing.
5. It removes makeup
Quick. Easy. Effective.
6. Soothes legs, arms, bikini area and underarms after waxing, shaving or laser treatments
7. It soothes babies’ cradle cap
Johnson’s Baby Oil is available in 50ml, 125ml, 200ml, 300ml and 500ml bottles, and in aloe vera and bedtime variants.
