I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Johnson’s Natural and received a product sample to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Up until I became a mom, I really never paid attention to labels on products that I used or how safe they actually were for me. I used to look for items that were cheap, smelled good and worked okay. When my daughter was born, we really started reading labels more carefully and tried to take precaution on what we put on her skin (as well as on ours). Babies have sensitive skin, so we have found ourselves changing up everything in our house including our laundry soaps, dryer sheets and especially the wash and lotion that we put on her body.

We had the opportunity to try these products in our home on our daughter recently. We received the Baby Shampoo, the Head-to-Toe Foaming Body Wash and the Baby Lotion.
I must say that all three of the products are very pleasantly scented. The baby shampoo lathered very well and left her hair very soft and smelling nice. I didn’t feel like I had to use a lot of this product to get it to lather. The foaming body wash is an amazing product. First, the fact that it is already sudsy when you pump it out is wonderful. I normally pour some of our regular wash onto a cloth and have to scrub it together to get it to suds up. I also love that it comes in a pump. Bathing a child isn’t exactly the easiest task sometimes because the more they grow, the squirmier they become in the tub. I often feel like I have one hand to work with and a pump definitely makes my life easier. The lotion is very smooth and has a nice, yet not overpowering scent. My child smelled so good after we put it on.
I feel like this is a step in the right direction for our family to continue our mission toward using more natural products in our household.
