Johnson’s for Beauty Challenge

Y’all know me…I am ALWAYS up for a challenge. Especially when it’s beauty related. Johnson’s has challenged me to come up with creative ways of using their body care products. They have provided me with lotions, baby powder and body washes.

The easy thing would be to just apply it on my skin, right? Welllll, because my skin has been insanely sensitive these days, I am going to discover other ways to use these products. And I’ll be updating you along the way.

If you have any suggestions, let a sista know. 8)

    When I spill some kind oil on the floor when doing my natural hair, i cover it with J&J Baby Powder before I wipe up the mess — the powder absorbs all the oil and prevents the floor from getting slippery.

      Ahhh, that’s an idea.

    How about using the body washes as a shampoo alternative, and using the baby oil as a hot oil treatment for hair.
    Also maybe using the lotion on hands and feet to provide deep moisture with gloves and socks.

      Lovin’ your ideas…keep ’em comin’!

    Hmmm I use the baby oil gel as a moisturizer after I shave my legs. I also use baby oil (gel or liquid) to remove traces of wax from my face after getting by brows done. I’m sure just about everyone knows you can also use baby oil as an eye makeup remover. As far as other uses, I have in a pinch used it to shine my shoes. LOL

    • Brittany

      Shoe shinning, yes!! I have SO done that before.

  • Like the poster above, I use the Baby Oil for eye make-up remover and the Baby Oil Gel instead of lotion sometimes (I put it on while my skin is wet right out of the shower, makes my skin super soft).

    I use the Shea Butter baby oil gel and mix it with my favorite lotion for extra moisture. Loves it!

    I have used a sprinkle of baby powder on the sheets before in the summer. Cuts down on that sticky, sweaty feeling. Also if you HATE having sand stuck to you, baby powder is a must. Sprinkle it on your legs/feet and the sand just brushes off. Also makes a pretty good ghetto carpet freshener. Sprinkle on the carpet/rugs, let it sit for a minute, then vacuum up.

    Baby oil is good for removing band-aids on places with hair, I also use it on stubborn zippers when they get stuck. Also if you have that slightly-too small ring you refuse to get rid of, it can help slide it off after it gets stuck. (I pop my knuckles way too much, learned this the hard way)

    I use the baby powder to soak up the oil at my roots when my hair gets oily, I also have these really cute, CHEAP pair of flats that make my feet smell, and I put baby powder in the shoes before I wear them, and they don’t smell when I take them off anymore. My bf uses the baby oil gel on his hair to sleek it down. And I’m sure the baby creamy oil can be used for people that have rough dry skin on their feet, they can apply it and then put socks on top and the feet can retain the moisture.

    • Brittany

      Awesome uses, mama! I’ve used powder in my shoes too.

    I dust a little baby powder on my eyelids before applying eye shadow. It’s the only thing I’ve found that prevents my eye shadow from creasing.

    • Brittany

      Ahhh, that’s an idea!
