Johnsons First Touch Fragrance Free Baby Products

When I was offered the opportunity to review Johnsons First Touch Fragrance free Range I jumped at the chance, although my baby days are well and truly over, a very good friend of mine Louise, has the most beautiful little girl Suzie, my lovely little goddaughter.
The problem is Louise suffers from the most terrible dermatitis. It is so bad it ended her Hairdressing career; her hands could just not take the daily grind of salon life. Lucky enough for the Hairdressing Profession she is now a very talented Hairdressing Teacher.(Currently on a short career break to be a Mummy)  As her core skill is bridal hair she is able to control her dermatitis by wearing gloves when touching wet hair.
There have been days when I have found it difficult to look at Louise’s hands when they are blistered, cracked, and bleeding, yet she carries on always smiling and never moaning. She has had many patch tests and is allergic to lots of products; fragranced products seem to cause particular problems for her. There have been days that her hands have been so bad that her Hubby Paul has had to take over with bathing changing etc, as her hands just crack and bleed. So as soon as I saw these products I knew they would be perfect for her to test on the lovely Suzie.


So, here’s what they thought.
First Touch Shampoo
Louise loved this she tested it on the whole family, being a Hairdressing Tutor she really put it through its paces, she found it lathered really well as a result you didn’t need to use too much product. She found it gentle, does not sting the eyes, but leaves the hair feeling clean and soft.

First Touch Moisturising Lotion
Louise felt it was perfect for sensitive skin, she noticed one day Suzie’s skin looked a little inflamed due to teething and felt that the Moisture lotion calmed her skin. She also liked the fact that it absorbed instantly, and left no sticky residue like some moisturisers do.
All in One Body Wash
Again the product went a long way but Louise felt it was best to use a body puff with it to really get the most of the product. She felt it lathered better with a puff and prevented over using the wash thus lasting much longer.
Wet Wipes
As they are fragrance free she felt they were kinder on sensitive or sore skin.
Barrier Cream
Louise Felt this was a good every day barrier and nappy cream, but on some occasions preferred to use the moisturiser. However still liked the product, she also used this on her cousins baby who has very sensitive skin and he too was able to use it without sensitivity.
Overall verdict, Louise loved the products and felt that they were kind and gentle to use on Suzies skin yet still were effective in cleansing and moisturising, she liked the fact that the products were cost effective to use, us Hairdressers are a bit obsessed with sustainability. It has been drummed into us.
Most importantly they caused no sensitivity at all to Louise’s super sensitive skin, this is huge to a Mum that at times is in absolute agony at the simple task of bathing and moisturising her baby. This is a task that all Mums should enjoy and treasure, now Louise can relax knowing she has found a product that does not irritate her sensitive skin. The only tiny minus she could find was that she missed the baby product smell, but then went on to say that if it did have the smell she would be unable to use it. I asked her if she would buy the products again and she said absolutely yes.
Although the lovely people from Johnson sent us the products to try out the opinions are strictly that of Louise and Suzie.

    Sounds like a fab product range and great to hear it was kind to her super sensitive skin! I hate fragranced baby products, the smell makes me feel a bit sick so I often opt for sensitive options as they have less strong fragrances! Will definitely bear this range in mind!! Xx #triedtested
