Johnson’s Baby Top-To-Toe Wash

Standard

johnsons baby top-to-toe wash

My skin has become uber-sensitive lately that mere insect bites (mosquito, ants) have ended up swelling, ultimately resulting into skin rashes before fading down to dark spots. There was also this one time when I got a motley of red patches at the back of my thighs which I thought was a reaction to sheets laundered with industrial strength laundry detergent. Hence products one would normally see in baby hampers have made their way into my bathroom and dresser. It’s weird but I’m still grateful that my face has been spared from this sudden change in my skin’s condition.

We have run out of Cetaphil but there was this 400 ml pouch of Johnson’s Baby Top-To-Toe Wash already in our house’s stock cabinet so I got that for myself. I thought that since babies use it, that it’s mild enough for their skin, it would be mild enough for mine. I have been using it for a month now and even if I still get rashes from insect bites, at least my skin has not reacted adversely when I use this. I don’t turn beet red or anything.

Ingredients: water, PEG-80 sorbitan laurate, sodium laureth sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, PEG-150 distearate, sodium lauroamphoacetate, tetrasodium EDTA, citric acid, fragrance, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone

It’s colorless, shower-gel like. I expected white cream since I have been accustomed to Johnson’s Body Washes. The scent does not last long. Not a fan of the scent really. Too chemically. It foams a lot once it meets water. Curiously, skin feels as if I used soap after I have washed it off. None of the slickness body washes and shower gels tend to impart while skin is still damp. And when I dry off, there’s that taut feeling of having used soap. (Something to think about when using this on baby’s skin.) Nonetheless, skin feels soft after some time. It does not seem to dry my skin and it does a good job of making it easy for me to get rid of grime using a wash cloth.

I have also been using this as a shampoo. Not taking chances with suds on my back when rinsing. Johnson’s Baby Top-To-Toe Wash keeps its promise of no more tears as it does not sting the eyes. It is unable to moisturize the ends of my hair (still crunchy) though and while it is able to relatively tame my hair, there are still a strays that refuse to submit.

Nevertheless, I think that’s what’s nice about Johnson’s Baby Top-to-Toe Wash. I can use it as both a body wash and shampoo and I don’t have to worry that it will exacerbate the rashes I’ve been getting, much less aggravate my skin on its own.

  1. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I would by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely wide for
    me. I am taking a look forward on your next publish, I’ll attempt to get the hold of
    it!

    • thanks for the nice thoughts on my blog. btw, if there’s someone out there saying that salmoncat will pay you if you visit her blogs don’t believe them. i’m dirt poor. if someone is sponsoring that pay to visit (this blog), i’d have to discourage you since i prefer people to visit my blog because of the content.

Thank you for reading. Your questions, reactions, thoughts are most appreciated.
