Beauty

Smooth as a baby’s bottom

It’s clear to anyone who knows me well: I love babies. I coo over any baby within the nearest square mile and talk about my little friends for days after I’ve spent time with them. As a result, I’ve spent a bit of time with bath and body products intended for the wee ones, and I can tell you that I have been enticed by one or two.

If Into The Gloss says it’s okay for grown women to use products intended for babies, then by all means, I’m going to take advantage. And it’s true. Powder-fresh scents and gentle ingredients are two legitimate reasons for adopting these formulas. I can attest to their allure.

During a routine trip to Target, I found myself adjacent to an aisle of wonder, one that I hadn’t traversed before – The Baby Aisle. I carefully inspected different lotions and creams and decided upon a duo of old standbys: Johnson & Johnson Baby Bedtime Bubble Bath & Wash and Johnson & Johnson Baby Bedtime Lotion. The formulas are infused with the scent of calming lavender, intended to induce a better night’s sleep. And let’s be real, everyone; not just babies, can benefit from that. I’ve used the products for a couple of months now and am pleased with both. Of course, at the low, low price of about $4, you aren’t going to be slathering on or bathing in any revolutionary ingredients; but the J&J products are enjoyable to use all the same. With the warmer weather approaching, high-intensity moisturizing lotions won’t be quite as necessary, anyway. So if you are looking for a light-weight body lotion for the spring and summer, this could be your winner. As for the bubble bath (a true gem: the perfect amount of froth and a pleasant, mellow scent), I am certain that I’ll be using it for years to come.

Ultra-reasonable price tags make testing these products a fairly low-risk game. Give them a go, baby doll! (Pun intended.)
