This stuff basically cured my acne! When I looked up reviews on MUA, others had the same experiences, and I knew I wasn't the only one that got these amazing results from just baby shampoo.. I would have never guessed! It all started one day when I ran out of my normal face wash and my mom had a couple travel size bottles around of baby shampoo so I decided to use it, because what the hell, it was just baby shampoo. The first thing I noticed is that it removed my eye makeup better than anything I have ever tried before, and was so gentle on my skin. It left it really soft, and I continued using it for the whole week.
From age 12-18, I used to have VERY acne prone skin, as in 2-3 new pimples on both my cheeks every single week. It was rare for me to not at least have one spot, I always had blemishes. As soon as one went away, another one popped up, and when I didn't have pimples, I had angry scars and hyper pigmentation. Needless to say, it was a mess, until I found this stuff. Guys, I have been using this for two months and I have not had ONE SINGLE ZIT SINCE USING IT!!! I can't even begin to describe how amazing this is. And I know it's been this stuff that's helping me because I only use this face wash and Cerave face lotion, no more BP treatments, no more salicylic acid, just this. The one time I did break out was when I stopped using it for a couple days and used a salicylic acid face wash, and BAM, zit. Once I started using this again, I was in the clear.
I will keep repurchasing this forever and ever, I also use this to clean my makeup brushes and to remove all my makeup. It's the best skincare product I have ever used.

I'm writing this review as a brush cleaner.
I absolutely love this stuff!! Amazing and cheap! I've tried using other brush cleaners and nothing compares! It gets makeup out of your brushes that you didn't even know was there! It's not harsh at all, and leaves my brushes super soft! Can't say enough how much I love this product!
I haven't used it as a makeup remover on my face, but I use baby oil for that.

This review is for the No More Tears Original Formula.
I diluted this shampoo heavily (as I was very nervous about using shampoo around the delicate eye area) and used it to remove eye makeup (very effective) and to clean the areas around my eyes where I have milia as I read that this can help in diminishing/getting rid of milia (no difference). After a week, my eye area was completely dried out and my eyelids extremely sensitive.
Amongst other things, ingredients include Quaternium-15, a formaldehyde releasing preservative and Tetrasodium EDTA, a preservative made from formaldehyde. J&J only plan to remove harmful ingredients by 2015!

While I typically use Noxema to remove my makeup, this works just as well. However, I mainly use it to keep my makeup brushes looking great. Very versatile, useful product.

I too have loved baby shampoo for years to wash makeup brushes. I have also used it as an eye makeup remover. Even though Johnson's is inexpensive, try Walmart's Equate or the house brand at Target -- I have compared side-by-side and they are identical and much cheaper.

This is so cheap & effective for cleaning make up brushes! I will definitely continue to buy for that purpose.

Well, thank-you Murais and others for your reviews. I too have millia (and a dry-eye condition) so, as I had some baby shampoo I use for washing my make-up brushes, so I tried it (somewhat nervously) on my face and I must say I can definitely see an improvement in my skin. Whilst I do use some creamy make-up removers and do like them I suspect they may also block my pores, so I will definitely be using this some if not all of the time in future.
I have also tried this with the Boots dupe of the Clarisonic and was surprised to see how much extra dirt and make-up it removed that I thought I'd already washed off.

I use 3 different mascaras on my eyes - Lancome Hypnose Drama and Chanel Le Volume at the top, and at the bottom Dior Diorshow New Look. I tried cheap drugstore removers (which never really worked) and then a friend switched me on to Lancome Bi-Facil (which worked better than anything else I had tried, but required a LOT of work to not tear my lashes out and get the mascara off). Still, I always looked like a raccoon...
I saw the miracle this baby shampoo was doing on my make up brushes (dirt that no other brush cleaner was getting out) and I wanted to try it on my lashes. Just putting a pea size on each eye did it. There was a two second sting but I know that Diorshow stings when I tear up at all, so I don't attribute it to J&J baby shampoo and it's not going to stop me from using either product again.
I don't know about using it as a regular cleanser - just haven't tried it. But I LOVE it as a brush cleaner and eye-makeup remover, especially the amount I get for $4. Like another reviewer said, if you are hesitant you can always try the travel size for $1.50!

Oh, J&J, I must sing your praises for...wait for it...milia removal! Yes, indeedy, and I thank the several ladies on the skin care board who recently mentioned this. I had a fairly decent sized milia bump on my upper eyelid near the eyebrow for what had been at least 5 years, maybe 10. It seemed like forever, that's for sure. Being one of the working uninsured, I refrain from drs/derms unless a body part goes awol. Certainly not for something as mundane as milia, however annoying they can be. In years past I've often tried poking it with a needle, AHA, BHA, and whatever other helpful hints I've read about online for home removal. And nothing worked because it was too big and had been there too long. The nasty bugger just sat there and glared, mocking me and my futile efforts, despite my having successfully vanquished other, smaller milia, mostly with the dramatic (and theoretically dangerous) needle method, in the past.
Fast forward to a little more than a month ago-6 weeks tops- when I read about baby shampoo for milia. After some further online research, and figuring I had nothing to lose, I plucked out $4.00 for a bottle and began washing around my eyes every night and morning with J&J baby shampoo after my regular face cleansing. For a few weeks I thought I was just indulging in wishful thinking when it appeared that monster one on my brow was getting smaller. Just last week, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me as it continued to diminish. But just earlier today I got out of the shower, looked in the mirror and saw a disgusting, but oddly beautiful sight. The monster's milia seeds (yes, multiple-ewww) were almost just sitting there right below the skin surface. All I had to do was lightly squeeze them, and they popped out. A triumphantly happy flashback to my pimple popping teenage years! I've stopped at every mirror in my house this past hour just to exclaim 'holy cow, it's gone!' After at least half a decade living with it, fellow sufferers can surely appreciate my joy?
Obviously YMMV, but In any event, yes, this victorious milia crusader gives very grateful kudos to baby shampoo, and a bottle of J&J will from now on hold grail-like pride of place in my shower. Unfrigging believable! And, by the way, my sensitive skin doesn't mind baby shampoo either.
