Johnson’s Baby Oil is an absolute beauty staple for the UK – did you know that over 1000 bottles are sold in the UK a day? That’s enough to fill 600 bathtubs a year. That’s a lot of oil.
I have been using Johnson’s Baby Oil since I was a teen, I used to use the oil gel as a leg moisturiser and there was also an oil mousse that I absolutely adored. I haven’t seen it for a while but taking part in this challenge has made me determined to track it down again – it’s a good alternative if you want all the moisturising properties, but with less residue. I also used to put drops of the classic oil in the bath for a moisturising boost.
So, the I heart Johnson’s Baby Oil Challenge – I’ve been invited to create my own ‘I heart JOHNSON’S® Baby Oil look’ look, using this well loved product and post my idea to be in with a chance of winning a trip to Milan for Fashion Week in September.
My first thought when it came to the challenge was what do I use Baby Oil for? I’ve used it for a whole manner of things. But one main use is to slather my hands in the oil, put on some gloves and leave my hands and cuticles to moisturise overnight. So I decide to play around with a Johnson’s Baby Oil inspired nail-art look.
So I dug out all my nail colours that were close to the colours of the traditional Johnson’s Baby Oil Bottle…
The I realised that nail art really isn’t my thing when I ended up with the below that looks like it was inspired more by Mr Blobby…check out the giant blob on my pinky!
You should have seen the alternative french manicure look I tried… what a mess! So, anyway…
That aside, I do love this classic Johnson’s Baby Oil inspired colour combination! So I decided to try out a make-up look inspired by the range of Johnson’s Baby Oil products…
So I used a selection of pink and lilac products with a very subtle hint of yellow.
Key products for the look:
Rimmel Glam’eyes eyeshadow quad (LE) Summer Bloom*
MAC Mineralise Blush ‘Hang Loose’
MAC Lipstick ‘Angel’
Korres Lipgloss ‘Light Purple’*
Max Factor Liquid Effect Pencil ‘Lilac Flame’*
Best thing about Johnson’s Baby Oil inspiring this look? I can use it to take it all off – baby oil is amazing as a make-up remover!
I have been asked to work with the makers of JOHNSON’S® Baby Oil to try their product and blog about it. They have sent me a free sample and the winner of the best blog as determined by a panel of judges will win a trip to Milan during Fashion Week.
