My skin would be nothing without Baby Oil Gel. I have mild eczema, and it works wonders for my skin. It's gel texture is what's so perfect. It's not like normal Baby Oil which is so slippery. The BOG locks in the moister of your skin keeping it hydrated throughout the day. I absolutely love it. I only use it at night though along with my Nivea Soft, because I'd be super greasy looking in the day time. I do however still use it on specific spots though especially in the winter time. I normally use the lavender one too because of the smell. I love Baby Oil Gel !!!
I love this stuff! I have SUPER dry skin, lotion just doesn't work for me. So I started using oil on my wet skin after a shower to help with the dryness and razor bumps. I always hated the oil being so messy/sticky so I was thrilled when I saw this oil gel. It still helps tremendously with my dry skin and it's not as "Difficult" to apply. LOVE!<3 continued >>
I use this to shave my legs; ,akes the whole process so quick and is better for the job than any shave gel I have ever used. Also leaves my legs so soft and smooth-and in all the time I've used it I hsven't cut myself once.
Love this stuff. I use the gel version over liquid or solid petroleum jelly because it's so much easier to work with, and use it for mainly removing (eye) makeup (sometimes full face, but only with sunscreens/ 'tough' foundations) - leaves my eyes feeling nice after removing with a damp, warm cloth. Use it occasionally as a moisturizer but never on the face & if you use a little it isn't greasy at all. I'm acne prone and this has yet to break me out; just make sure that you wash your face well after. Tip: check your dollar store. I get the generic there, which makes it insanely cheap. continued >>
I was wary of using mineral oil (the primary ingredient), but if you read the labels of many of the highly regarded lotions, they also contain mineral oil. I'm loving this stuff. I sweat a lot, no matter what antiperspirant I use, but I found that rubbing a tiny bit of baby oil gel into my armpits after shaving/before applying antiperspirant soothes my skin and reduces my sweating (I still use the baby oil gel but switched to Crystal natural deodorant and my sweating has stopped). I also rub a tiny bit into my nails, which seems to reduce the splitting, peeling and breakage I have struggled with since my thyroid was removed 10 years ago. And it works wonders to soothe my itchy skin when my eczema flares up, much better than the pricy specialty creams. A definite repurchase for me.
I have a nice Winter secret with this product that is keeping my skin soft and protected against the dry heat. When I shower and when it's time to use my shower gel Lush Grass at the moment. I mix the baby oil gel with my shower gel add to my puffy thing and scrub away or I'll use my hands when I want more targeted moisture. This leaves my skin soft and smelling so good. I swear it makes your shower gel scent last longer plus added skin moisture to your gel. So for me this is a win win. The packaging really needs some work though I find it cracks and then it's so hard to get it out without it taking forever and many types of squeeze tactics.;)
In the Winter I find extra moisture essential to my skin because the heat from my hot showers,dry heat in the house.plus outdoors really take a toll on me. I also can't stand dry skin bumps so this is just what I need. I like this because mixed with the shower gel it cuts back on being too oily but you can adjust to your liking which is great.If I need more moisture later I use Moist's Hemp Body Moisturizer which is excellent and affordable as well. Yet, I find J&J's baby products are excellent and I always find myself using one of their products or have one in my bathroom. I recommend this product in whatever way you like to use it because this stuff works and I like products that do what they say which is keeping my skin soft and protected. continued >>
This is one of my HG lotions. It helps my skin look and feel soft and smooth. I use it straight after shower or in and it's just amazing! It's a bit too greasy when you use it on dry skin for my taste though
Love this product. I noticed a few reviewers stated that it left their skin feeling greasy, but this may be because you only need a couple of small dots of this product. I have not had any problems with breakouts or rash of any kind. I use this on my legs right after I get out of the shower. I do not towel my legs off first, i apply a small amount to my damp skin which locks in the moisture. My skin feels wonderful after every use.
I have really dry legs, so I thought I'd try this since regular baby oil is so messy. It was too greasy, and after a few hours I developed DOZENS of tiny pimples on my lower legs. In the trash it went!
wow- i rarely review things like moisturizers & what not but a review for this was on one of the first pages & i was reading about how the woman used it & realized, wow- this really is amazing. i have two different kinds of this Baby Oil Gel but love them both!
Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil Gel is available in alot of places that i have seen. I have seen this available in mass stores like Walmart, Target as well as some drugstores like Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid but also check out Family Dollar & Dollar General stores. thats where i found mine for a few cents less. Either way, this gel will not cost you too much esp for what you get bc it will last forever but i paid around $2. so its priced around $2-3. which is really cheap!
I have two different formulas. I have one with purple lid which is Chamomile infused to it and also have a green one which is Aloe infused. Both have a stronger scent but isnt as strong once it wears into skin but a scent will linger. I love the aloe vera one for daytime if i need it and the Chamomile one for night shower use. They both or ill say all the scents & original scent- are pretty great but im sure you will find one that you will enjoy. As soon as i smell these, i know my skin is finally going to relax and feel good!
Ok the performance of the Baby Oil Gels are amazing! i have to say i have normal to dry skin. most of the time, my skin is extremely dry with occasional flares of eczema so i do have to be wary of what i slather on my skin bc its somewhat sensitive esp w/ eczema. So i was worried about throwing a whole bunch of a scented gel onto my skin esp when i have scratches (i know it sounds horrible but when im itchy, i cannot help it, its a relief until i realize i have scratched my skin open in a spot, this doesnt happen all the time, but i dont have insurance & cannot afford to go to doctor for further testing & more of my eczema medication) but this gel has been a lifesaver esp in harsh winter months but is great to use all year round. If you dont like the feel of anything on your skin, then you may not like this but i think the results will amaze you. The way i use this is how most do- after im done with the shower, i use this in there & squirt some on my hands & rub all over my body in THIN LAYERS. i dont like a whole but enough to provide a thin layer. i also sometimes put on a body souffle or body butter after & mix them together or glide them all over. These will be a tad sticky like for a few minutes so i finish w/ my hair & things & by that time, it has mostly sunken into my skin so i can throw my clothes on. I dont mind waiting for hydration :) My skin has never felt so smooth & im not actually going crazy this winter with really dry skin. I love it! Def great for most skin but beware those w/ sensitive skin- it doesnt bother mine but obviously test your skin first. I think both of the ones i own provide hydration & smooth & soft skin throughout the day. most lotions or creams feel good for a minute then i have to reapply- this almost holds it in at least 10x longer & also my bf loved the way it smells. he has given me a lot of compliments when i wear this bc every once & awhile you will get a slight wift of the scent. its not too strong but just right to me!
The J&j Baby Oil Gel comes in a clear plastic container almost looks like new ketchup bottles meaning the top is on the bottom which makes it easy to squeeze out the gel- its not all sitting on the bottom. No shaking or tapping needed. The lid closure can be opened or snapped shut. ive read people have had problems w/ theirs leaking, mine hasnt done that so far but i only squeeze out a little at a time so it dont get all over lid. The lids are different colors depending on which formula you purchase. The packaging also has more info on the back & labeling & logo on the front. Its see thru so you can see how much gel you have left, i like that. i dont like guessing games. :) its not the prettiest bottle but it works for me. but if you do travel with this, maybe place it in a seperate plastic bag that is sealed so that way if anything happens to it, it wont ruin anything else bc really its a gel oil so it may stain, i havent had any problems with my clothing or carpets but do be careful!
Overall, this oil gel has saved my skin & i cannot believe it keeps getting better, my skin is very finicky & things will work then stop after so long but this is continuing to work & help so much. i def will repurchase & suggests at least trying this out. I love it! continued >>
