Ten or Less: Johnson's Baby Shampoo – An Original Multi-Tasker

I told you a few weeks about how I’m participating in Johnson’s Blog for Beauty Challenge. My first post was about Johnson’s Baby Powder (did you know there’s a Magnolia scented baby powder? love it) and this week I’m all about their Baby Shampoo.

There is a cleanser that I love dearly and every single time I use it, I’m reminded of Johnson’s Baby Shampoo because it smells just like it and is just as gentle so this week I actually used it instead of my beloved cleaner without any repercussions. It didn’t leave my skin feeling dry or tight and didn’t leave my eyes burning when I got some in them. It made for a great eye makeup remover too.  At one point I even added some Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant into the mix for some exfoliating love, you could add in some sugar instead if you wanted a less expensive option. I don’t know that I would use this regularly instead of a cleanser but if I’m traveling or in a pinch, this will fit the bill.

As I did with the baby powder, I tried to find some alternate uses for the baby shampoo:

  • It makes a good laundry detergent for my delicates on a gentle cycle and they came out great.
  • It makes a good brush cleaner, whether it is a makeup brush or a hair brush.
  • It makes a good household cleaner, I used a a quarter size dollop on my wood surfaces and the mineral oil in it made it shine like new.

If I had sensitive skin, I’m sure this would be a staple in my life. For now, I’m saving it for my brush arsenal and delicates. I’m sure there are a lot more ways to use this product that I haven’t even thought of but how many products do you know of that can do so many things for around $3? Do you use this product in any unexpected ways? Let me know in the comments.

Johnson's Baby Powder: A Classic in So Many Ways!

For the next for four weeks, I’m participating in Johnson’s Blog for Beauty Challenge. They have a variety of products with intense moisturizing properties that keep skin feeling smooth and baby soft. I figured that if we trust children’s skin with Johnson’s, why not use it on myself? So that’s what I’m doing. Each week I’m blogging about a different product and sharing how I’m using it and what it is doing for my skin.

Today’s Johnson’s product is the original, the classic Johnson’s Baby Powder. We all know by now that sprinkling a little bit of baby powder in your hair is a great way to get rid excess oil in your hair. In fact, I did this hours before seeing Katy Perry live in concert last week and meeting her at a “Meet & Greet” hours later. This use is actually one of the first things I wrote about when I started Product Girl almost 6 years ago.

Here are a few more uses you might find helpful: Continue reading
