Favorite Product of the Week: Johnson’s Baby Oil

Favorite Product of the Week: Johnsons Baby Oil! First off, I have a confession to make. I have really dry bodyskin! It is my main body insecurity which reaches its peak during Winter. Not only have I tried a whole set of different body lotions, butters and even masks just to feel soft, but  I also have to deal with the consequences of having a dry skin. Ingrown hair, frizzy effect after applying whatever lotion or body butter, and of course the stron odour which sticks to my clothes…., etc. It’s been a lon journey, till I read an interview for Vera Wang who was asked about her beauty secrets, and she casually mentioned applying baby oil right after her daily showers. So, I had a sort of “Aha” moment and figured that maybe I was going too harsh on my skin.

From that moment on, I toned down my beauty routine and tried Johnson’s Baby Oil. Till now, I have NOT been disappointed AT ALL. On the contrary, I have been impressed by how a very affordable drug-store product can beat overpriced and ridiculously overrated body lotions and butters by supposedly high-end brands.

The secret to using Johnson’s Baby Oil (I have been usin Johnson’s because it is almost in EVERY drug-store in Egypt) is applying it just after you get out of shower. Just dry off your body with a nice soft towel, and rub your body with Johnson’s Baby Oil. It’s just a matter of hours till you feel like having silky skin that smells nice without being too overwhelming in terms of greasiness or odour. It is all because when you have a shower, your skin is automatically moist with all the water it absorbs. So, when you top your skin with oil, it helps keeps this moist in.

As for Johnson’s, there is a whole range of different fragrances. Personally, I prefer the Fresh Blossoms, but you can pick your own favorite.

    I totally agree. I have been using baby oil after showers as well and i think, by far, it is one of the best products with the best results that i have tried. I have also read that if you use it on wet skin it kind of gives you even more moisturising effect and i think it is true. So try that and let me know. 🙂
