My mom used Johnson’s on me, I use Johnson’s on my kids. I love the no more tears formula that Johnson’s is so famous for especially since my kids never stay still and get water in their eyes and it generally has soap in it. The one big thing for me is that while I love Johnson’s it like many other products was not “green”, and no I don’t mean the color lol. I have been doing all I can to make my family greener we do trashless lunches, turn off lights, reusable shopping bags and recently I discovered natural body wash/shampoo products. I was very torn though as to whether I wanted to switch to a product because it would make me “green” or if I wanted to stay with Johnson’s because it is what I know and love.
Thankfully Johnson’s has now taken my dilemma away and made my choice as a mother so much easier. Johnson’s has a new line called Johnson’s Natural. Yay again Johnson’s rocks in my books and hit the nail on the head. Johnson’s new Natural lineup provides us with a combination of 98% naturally derived ingredients. It is designed to cleanse, hydrate and nourish baby’s skin. It is also the very first naturally derived No More Tears Formula and with no parabens, dyes, or essential oils – Johnson’s Natural foaming baby wash, shampoo and lotion proves yet again to be gentle enough for newborns and “big kids”. Not to mention the 60% post-consumer recycled packaging, the products not only naturally work to nurture your child’s skin, but also help protect the environment.
The Johnson’s Natural line consists of head-to-toe foaming baby wash, baby lotion, baby shampoo, 3-in-1 shampoo conditioner & body wash and the 2-in-1 hand and face foaming wash.
I received all 5 of these products to review. I took the time and tested each of them at least once. I generally test more then that but unfortunately Maddisyn got ahold of the baby shampoo and well lets just say her dolls hair is super clean and environmentally friendly. I did get a chance to use it once on each of the babies though . I found that it was a little thin and so with Maddisyns’ hair it was harder to get it through her hair, but Holden has barely any hair and I found this perfect for his little head and had intended on using it further on him until my sweet angel got ahold of it.
I used the head to toe foaming baby wash and absolutely love it. I find that it is easier to use and wash the babies with then traditional washes because it does not just run right off of their bodies before I get a chance to use it, it comes out foamy and stays foamy. I always use baby lotion Holden after his bathes and have since he was a newborn. I just like how soft it makes their skin and how yummy they smell after wards. I was concerned that Holden would not smell as good with the Johnson’s Natural stuff but while he does not have that strong smell he still smells yummy.
Maddisyn really likes when I use the Johnson’s 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner & body wash. It seems to speed our routine up by just having to wash her hair once and then wash down her body rather then washing her hair twice which means rinsing twice which means two meltdowns over water in her face and then washing her body. I like it because it leaves her hair smooth and silky and super easy to brush out after bathtime. Last product I want to tell you about but certainly not the least by any means is the 2-in-1 hand and face foaming wash. Maddisyn uses this mostly because she stands at the sink and washes her hands and face during our bedtime routine. she likes to wet her face and then I pump some into her hand and she washes her hands and face and then we rinse. Her face gets sparkly clean and I feel safe knowing she did not just put a bunch of chemicals on her face to clog her pores.
All in all although I try to avoid change I am very happy I got to do this review and plan on continuing to buy the Johnson’s Natural line as opposed to the traditional line, I think it works well in my house and I love the products.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Johnson’s and received the products necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
