For the wee bairn in all of us

Pros: Genuinely soothing, good for irritable and sensitive skin

Cons: Initial guilt feelings over using a "baby" product

Body...gentle...use from head to toe. your assurance...delicate... a small...hand, and rub gently all over...especially in creases and joints. The only one, from day one.

The above is taken from the 440 mL Canadian bottle of "Johnson's Baby Body Wash." Yeah, read that again and tell me it's not for adult use!

Er. Anyway. The company's "Soothing Vapor Bath" is really unparalleled in the adult world for bath-time pampering when you're sick. Granted, the vapours could be a bit stronger, but that would sacrifice the "baby" element: the idea of sitting in a tub of "Vicks Vapo-Rub" probably doesn't sound that appealing for those with sensitive skin (or a few sensitive areas...), but -- take it from one whose skin kicks up a fuss at 99% of soaps -- this stuff doesn't irritate. It calms, it softens the water, it de-clogs, but it doesn't do it at the expense of your skin. The smell also dissipates quickly post-bath, not really something you can say about "Vapo-Rub"...

This falls under the category of Yet Another "Baby" Product Adults Should Be Using Too. Cheap, non-irritating, reliable: such is the Johnson's line of baby bath products. The aforementioned "Baby Body Wash" with the subliminal label is sublime. The company advertises its pink-bottled baby lotion in the UK in adult women's magazines; I'm not sure what the problem is on this side of the pond, but, trust me, virtually everything in the Johnson's line-up is suitable for adults, and a good value. (We'll know the company has figured out its adult clientele when we see higher prices and a "Johnson's Baby Anti-Perspirant Stick," but for now, just look parental when buying it and try to keep this relatively hush-hush.)
