Pros:MOISTURIZES
● Non-greasy feel

Cons:● Lotion may cause serious problems for those with asthma, or allergies.

The Bottom Line: Johnson’s Bedtime Lotion is a nice evening product because the fragrance fades overnight; however, I wouldn’t use it in the morning as the scent’s a bit overwhelming.


I adore Johnson’s Bedtime Bath, which is enriched with lavender, and smells heavenly. Therefore, when exhausting my supply of Johnson’s Original Baby Lotion I decided to try their Bedtime Lotion. I like this product, and plan to continue to toss it in the cart when available.

Johnson’s Bedtime Lotion is a body lotion designed to soothe fussy babies. The company goes as far as to say that the lavender, and chamomile will help to relax baby while leaving their skin soft, and smooth. Johnson’s also claims that the lotion is hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. The lotion is white in color, thick, and produces a non-greasy feel. It is packaged in a translucent plastic bottle with a lavender flip-top lid. The lotion is available in a 15-ounce size, and a smaller 9-ounce size as well.


Safety Warning on the Bottle:
Keep out of reach of children. Do not use without consulting a doctor if child has asthma, or allergies as serious breathing problems could occur.


Ingredients:
Water, Propylene Glycol, Myristyl Myristate, Oleic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Polysorbate 61, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Synthetic Beeswax, Benzyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, BHT, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide


My Experience:
I live in the desert where the temperatures are extreme, which is drying to the skin. My son has dry patches on his arms, and legs, which is easily treated with baby lotion. I noticed his dry patches fad quicker with this formula than with Johnson’s Original Baby Lotion. I’m not sure why that is, but maybe it’s because I like the fragrance, so I’m more inclined to use it. In the morning, I can detect the smell of this lotion on my boy, but only slightly. That said, the fragrance of the Bedtime Lotion is strong. It’s so strong in fact that I’m not sure I would use it on a newborn. That may sound weird… but when my son was an infant, I bathed him in the morning. The Bedtime Lotion might be a bit overwhelming as an all day scent.

When shopping, I was a bit disappointed when first cracking the lid of Bedtime Lotion. I couldn’t whiff the calming fragrance, because Johnson’s now seals their lotions. Actually, they warn buyers not to use if the seal is broken. Obviously, this precaution is good for buyers, but I see a downside. Shoppers already familiar with Johnson’s Bedtime products know that they contain lavender, and chamomile, so the seal is a safeguard. The remaining sector must read the description to discover this important fact because they can’t smell the product before purchasing. Many might put the lotion back on the shelf if they were able to smell it first. Johnson’s doesn’t specify the lavender, and chamomile in the ingredients, only in the blurb. Why is this important? Well, the ingredients have been known to cause problems in people with asthma, and allergies.

In addition, I wish Johnson’s would re-design their lotion bottles to duplicate their Softwash product where the lid is placed on the bottom. The lid on the Bedtime Lotion is placed at the top making it difficult to get out the remaining squeezes. On the other hand, I like that you can see how much is in the bottle. Many products don’t have that feature. Overall, I’m very pleased with this product as an evening lotion, because the fragrance fades overnight; however, I wouldn’t use this lotion in the morning, as the scent is too strong for me.
