People do NOT waste your money on expensive cleaners for your makeup brushes and sponges - this works like a dream! It is the FASTEST and EASIEST way to remove all traces of makeup from your tools and is super affordable too. I started to find that some of the other cleaners were making the bristles of my brushes start to become brittle which is horrifying when you consider how much of an investment we make in these tools. After reading reviews I decided to give J&J Baby Shampoo a try and am I ever thankful to my fellow reviewers as this has transformed not only my brushes and sponges but decreased the amount of time spent cleaning them. The shampoo is gentle yet effective, and must be somewhat conditioning/hydrating because when I am finished even my hands do not feel dry or dehydrated. One trick I have discovered that speeds up the cleaning routine is to pour a tiny amount of shampoo into the bottom of a bar soap travel container (one that has ridges in it for drying/air circulation), wet the brush, dip into the shampoo and swirl around inside the travel container. The raised ridges help scrub the makeup out of the brush and then it's just a quick rinse and set aside to dry. I rest mine on a microfibre cloth which unlike a regular towel, allows the water to evaporate faster. When cleaning makeup sponges, I simply soak the sponge in water, pour a tiny amount of shampoo on the sponge and massage it in with my fingers. You will see the makeup pull out of the sponge and drop into your sink right before your eyes. Rinse well and voila! I wash my sponges frequently but if you have a lot of buildup, you might need to repeat the shampoo to get it clean. An added bonus is that a large bottle of this shampoo is only a few dollars and lasts a long time. Highly recommend this over any other brush/sponge cleanser. For those in between brush cleanings where you need to quickly use it again I do recommend the It Cosmetics "It's your brush love" spray - just not for a true deep cleaning.

This is so ridiculously effective at deep cleaning makeup brushes. It also doesn't dry out the bristles in natural fiber brushes. I was amazed at how much better this worked than any of my other "real" makeup brush cleaning solutions.Seeing how the baby shampoo made the caked in makeup literally melt right out of my brushes, and seeing how it's supposedly gentle enough for a baby's eyes, I decided what the heck and tried it as a face wash for removing stubborn eye makeup. Every other proper "makeup removing" face wash I've used has been mediocre at best at removing eye makeup and usually pretty irritating and drying. The baby shampoo was like magic. It took off all of my makeup so easily, and it didn't irritate my skin at all. Left my skin as clean and soft as a baby's butt, pun intended. It smells kinda funky but I'm going to let that slide because it's cheap as sin. I love this stuff!

I use this as an eye makeup remover. I dilute it heavily and apply it gently around my eyes with a cotton pad. It never irritates my eyes and it takes everything off. I was first recommended to use this by my Opthamologist since I had a bad case of blepharitis. I was instructed on using a cotton swab along my lash line using JBS. It cleared it up within a few days and as always there wasn't any stinging my eyes. Great product!

I use MAC's brush cleaner on a daily basis, but I occasionally use this as a "clarifying shampoo" to make sure my brushes aren't holding onto any residue.

A friend of mine suggested I try this as a face wash and I was a little taken aback. Yes, we all know how gentle baby products are (I used J&J lotions for years) but still ... a shampoo? On your face? But after reading many reviews on here and elsewhere, I decided why not? I was worried about it drying out and stripping my skin but I haven't experienced that at all. I purchased the J&J Head To Toe Wash, specifically.I've only been using it for just over a week but started after my face broke out horribly from using TBS Aloe Cleanser. I am thoroughly impressed with how my skin reacted during this transitional period. My break outs from the Aloe cleanser literally calmed down the first day and were less red and inflamed almost immediately and through to the next morningMy skin hasn't suffered a break out since and usually when I introduce something new I get a couple small pimples - and yet, nothing. My skin is very smooth after using this and i've noticed a change in the tone of my complexion. I do use this in conjunction with my clarisonic in the evenings and a small amount in the morning.I have yet to try it after having worn foundation so I can't atest to how great it would work in that situation but I've used it after wearing some concealer, powder and eye make up and it removed all of that VERY, very well - i used a facial wipe afterwards to see if there was anything left behind and it was clean as a baby's bottom ;)It's certainly worth a shot to try - even if you don't like it as a face wash, use the rest of it on your body or something. The price for the quantity you get can't be beat. I will be cleaning my brushes with this this weekend as so many reviewers have said this shampoo is a great brush cleaner. I'll edit to reflect my thoughts.Edit: I've stopped using this as a face wash. It didn't break me out or anything but i felt like it wasn't doing anything for my skin either after a month of continued and consistent use. It wasn't the best at removing foundation and left a slight film on my face so i decided to go back to black soap as my cleanser. That being said i have used it to clean my brushes and its superb for that.

I am pretty sure it has been covered here before, but let me reiterate a few things about this shampoo.1) It is "gentle" in the sense it won't sting baby's eyes. It is not "gentle" in how it cleans...it was never meant to be "gentle" in that way because2) It is meant to clean off cradle cap. It is great at loosening and cleaning off that stuff.3) If you child has sensitive skin or eczema like mine did/do, this is not your friend. It is very drying and as a result irritating to those with dry or sensitive skin. It isn't dangerous, but those dealing with these issues need something more gentle. I think we used Aquaphor Baby wash when the kids were babies and just ended up sticking with Cetaphil.4) As far as using this as regular shampoo, again, depends on the person's hair. If you have oily, fine hair...this might be a good option. If you have dry, frizzy or colored hair, I would not touch this with a 10 foot pole.5) It makes a very nice makeup brush cleanser too.So, it is a fine product for what it does and it's purpose (clean off cradle cap, not sting babies eyes). But it is by no means a one stop shop.

I'm not sure why it has good rating. It ok shampoo but you can't fully rely on it unless you are 18 years old and have perfect hair. Even for kids, there are better brands that makes better kids shampoo.

So. I've been using baby shampoo as face wash for 3 years.I sufferd from cystic acne for years before I discovered that it was being cause by the harsh cleansers I was using.I also use it to clean my makeup brushes.It smells great and isn't drying.

I have been using this product to wash my hair for over a year now. Other users on this site have mentioned that it does not lather very well, especially when the scalp is oily, and I agree. However, this -IS- a product which is meant to be gentle. I live in a climate which necessitates everyday washing and this shampoo does the job well. I recommend wetting the hair thoroughly, pouring about a 2.5cm/1-inch-diameter-sized amount for short hair (up to shoulder length) and then concentrating the lather on the roots and letting the run-off from rinsing cleanse the rest of the hair. I find that this leaves me with a clean-feeling scalp with a nice amount of natural oils to finger-comb and distribute through my hair while it dries naturally, such that I never need conditioner. (*OK note that I have rather straight, thick-growing hair so individuals with thin hair might just want to sorta fluff it out instead. Don't agitate your roots*) I have also found it to be suitable for mixing with baking soda to create a clarifying shampoo (since I style my hair with wax and hairspray quite often). You DO need to follow up with a conditioner or hair oil after this though. Longer hair might benefit from slightly more shampoo (my sister who has mid-back length hair recommends around 3 cm /1.5 inches.) Alternatively, you might want to shampoo a second time using a smaller amount. *One lipstick off because c'mon... what's good for me does not always work well for every one else. Peace =)

I use baby shampoo clean makeup brushes as well. I use either the Wal-Mart or Target store brand -- they are identical and much less expensive. Baby shampoo can also be used as an eye makeup remover -- remember, no more tears.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
