Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash

Posted by EB Product Panel , 10 August 2010 · 1833 views




Our members tried Johnson's new 'no more tears' Baby Bubble Bath & Wash. Here's what they had to say.




My nearly 2 year old LOVES this bubblebath... he calls out "BLUE" "BLUE BUBBLES" if we forget to add them to the bath..

My hands don't react well to anything with bubbles .. but this isn't too bad - thankfully DH has the bathtime duties.

Having a bottle of bubbles at the ready for bathtime makes getting our DS into the bath alot easier with the promise of bubbles.

...
now if i had a glass of bubbles for my own bathtime every night, now that would be great!  wink.gif

That's so true about bubbles! BUBBLES BUBBLES BUBBLES. My kids love them. Great way to get them into the bath with the promise of bubbles. The only problem can be getting them out! There's no age on bubbles my five year old still thinks they're the best thing in the world.

The smell's lovely as well. Bath times whould be fun and lovely and warm and this bubble bath is a great way to get you there.

My daughter is 20 months old, and my son is 5 years old. My son was excited about having a bubble bath, as he hasn't had one for a while. However, he didn't think that there were enough bubbles. For my daughter though, there were plenty (she doesn't have any expectations, haha). The smell is lovely - it kind of lingers making the house smell nice.

My only criticism would be that the directions on the pack say to use 2-3 capfuls of the product, but it comes with a 'squeeze-type' lid. It can be unscrewed, but it wasn't the type of direction I was expecting for this type of lid.

I would recommend this product for younger kids. Maybe as a first introduction to bubble baths.

Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash has an 'old school' bubble bath smell which we love and I found it didn't dry out the kids skin which is a bonus. Our only gripe with it was that the bubbles were gone really quickly but we'd buy it for sure.

We have been using the Johnsons Baby bubble bath for a week now and have found it to dry out my 22 month DD skin. So I have been using it in the shower instead as a wash. I love it, my skin is soft and smooth, and smells great!

When using in the bath it was good as you can get your child out once the bubbles have gone which isnt too long which in my opinion is great! :-)

We have used the Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash for the last 4 nights. It was eagerly anticipated as all new products are in this house. Bubbles everywhere in a matter of minutes, 3 very happy little bathers. It has a lovely scent, not too overpowering, but which lasted on their skin and had them smelling beautiful as I dressed them for bed.

The boys were very excited to see new bubble bath in the house and were all really eager to try them out.  The pleasant smell filled the bathroom as the first two boys jumped in.  Then another 2 hopped in and could still enjoy the same bubbles.  All I had to do was add some more hot water for the older two (who both wanted candles to relax, like mum does original.gif ).  The mixture didn't make them feel sliming, as others have in the past and it definitely didn't affect their eyes.  Even their hair stayed soft and didn't go straw like.  

The directions do say 2-3 capfuls, but is a squeezy lid, so we went by squirts!

I loved that the bubbles could last 6 messy boys, without me having to add more for each child and still make bathtime fun.  Thinking next time I get a chance to wind down I may even use them myself!

We don't normally buy bubblebath products, so this one was eagerly anticipated.  I tried it out first myself before releasing it on the rugrats  original.gif  They loved it.

I liked the scent, it wasn't too overpowering.  The bubbles did disappear quite quickly, but for me that's a bonus as we're normally a household that avoids surfactants and chemicals.  I know that the gentler products won't have much longevity.

I'd like to see less chemicals on the ingredients list (some of those do worry me) and with recent bad press regarding health concerns with similar bathtime products I'd probably not buy it again but will definitely keep an eye open for new formulations by Johnson's at the shops.

I tried this bubble bath with my older kids who are 2 years old and 4 years old.
The bubbles were not as plentiful as I would have thought and disappeared quite quickly.  
The scent was pleasant.  
The formula did dry out my son's skin who normally does not have this problem with other Johnson's products which was disappointing.
Also instead of capfuls directions could indicate squeezes.
I probably wouldn't buy this product after trying it as there are better ones in the Johnson's range.

My almost 2 year old absolutely loved her first ever bubble bath with this product. I agree with others that having 'capful' directions and a squeeze lid doesn't make sense, but I didn't find hard to guess how much to pour in. I found it made plenty of bubbles and they lasted throughout my daughter's bath. The smell is beautiful and her skin was lovely and soft after her bath. I will plan to continue using this as a special treat, maybe once a week.

We don't have a bath, but instead put the plug in the bottom of our shower and let it fill up to about a foot. My 2 year old loves that it makes an otherwise boring shower so exciting - so many bubbles! She comes out smelling lovely and feeling nice and soft.

I love Johnson's products. The smell is gorgeous, not over powering, just a really lovely clean scent. I didn't carefully measure the bubble bath out we just put a few squirts in and that was plenty!

The bubbles were quick to form with a swish around the bath but didn't last long, which I suppose isn't that much fun for the kids, but  great for parents trying to find foreign objects in the bath.

I like that this bubble bath doesn't leave that 'film' on your skin or bath, you get out of the bath (yes me too) with silky smooth skin! I'd buy it again even if just for myself - the kids would prefer bubbles that last the distance (groan..) great for small children though that don't want to be overwhelmed by the bubble factor!

We tried the Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash over a longer period of time because I wanted to see how my children's skin would react - they both have very sensitive skin and often have reactions to soaps and shower gels.

I have been so pleasantly surprised that neither of them has reacted!!

We've used it as a body wash (rather than bubble bath) and it has a lovely consistency and scent.  It goes on easily with a face washer and doesn't leave and slimy film.

The pleasant scent lingers on their skin for a long time after their shower, which means I'm breathing in an old-fashioned soapy smell when reading them a story wub.gif .

I've also been using it, and the three of us have lovely soft skin and no reactions.  I would definitely recommend it.

I am a fan of all Johnsons baby products already, as I love the smell.  I was quite surprised with the scent of this product being quite different to any of the other products, but still impressed.  I did think 2-3 capfuls as directed was a bit excessive, so just went with a light squeeze into running water, which I found to create plenty of bubbles as well as fill the room with a refreshing (yet different!) aroma.  Like any bubble bath product they are short lived once you add a block of soap to the water, but I don't think there is any way around that.  None of my 3 children that have used it showed any signs of irritation of the skin, which reassures it is a gentle product.

I would be curious to know how much this product costs. I had to use quite a bit to get a decent amount of bubbles and its not a big bottle. So price wize i would say its more expensive than the other children's bubble bath that i buy.

I didn't really like the smell either. It was old fashioned like green apples.

No nasty reactions to the skin.

I like the lid dispenser, but overall i would not buy it over my current bubble bath.

I loved the smell of this bubblebath.  So many bubblebaths have a horrid overpowering smell.  The JJ one is lovely, apple smell,Made me want to use it as a bodywash!   My skin reacts to some soaps, but I had no problems bathing my kids with the JJ.

My kids loved the bubbles,  my 18mnth old squealed in delight when he saw them.  I did not have to use very much solution at all.

I love it and will buy it in the future

My 17 month old just loves it! It was his first experience with bubble baths. We had him in the small baby bath, so weren't quite sure how much to use, so the first few times there were only a few bubbles. I love the fresh apple smell and it left a wonderful lingering scent in the bathroom & on DS as well.

There were no tears which was great. DH poured water over DS's head with no problems at all!!

Not sure how much the product normally retails for but I am happy to keep using it if it is a reasonable cost. There were no side effects eg dry skin or reactions at all.

The product was easy to use as it had a squirt top, but you could also unscrew the lid to measure out a capful or 2 if needed.

I may even have to have a bath with it myself!!!!

I love the Johnson's baby products and have been using them for the past 7.5 years with all 3 of my children.  My daughters love the new bubble bath (and so do I).  The smell is lovely and it doesn't dry out their skin.  DD3 (14 months) points to the cupboard where it is kept and reminds me if I forget to add it while running the bath so it is a big hit with her too.  

I did think the recommended usage of 2 - 3 capfuls to be quite a lot and the bottle wouldn't last very long so I have started just squirting some in while the water is running and I find we still get plenty of bubble.

I will defintely be buying more of this product in the future!

I have been using Johnson's baby products on my 22 month old son since he was a newborn, and was very eager to try the bubble bath as it was a product I had not yet tried.

The Packaging was easily recognisable as a Johnson's product, and the bottle was a very good size. I absolutely loved the smell!!!

The recommended amount was a few capfuls, but I just squirted that approximate amount into the bath (it would have been easy to also unscrew the cap and measure). The bubbles were lovely, and there was a perfect amount every time. I usually fill the bath to almost half, and found the bubbles to be "foamy", which I liked, and in my experience, most of the bubbles stayed throughout my sons bath time. I also liked that it has a "no more tears" formula, because my son was splashing around and putting bubbles on his face  biggrin.gif

This was the first time that we had used a proper bubble bath, usually I would just squirt in some bath wash, but I will definitely be switching to this product. My son had a blast playing with the bubbles, he was so fascinated and didn't want to get out of the bath. His skin was so lovely after the bath and smelt beautiful.

Overall, great smell, lovely foamy bubbles, gentle on skin and a good size bottle. I would highly recommend!

The bubbles were quick to form with a swish around the bath but didn't last long at all.  I used it on my 4yr and 1yr old.  My 4yr was upset there wasnt alot of bubbles,
my 1yr hated the bubbles and broke out in a few welts on his side and legs, he is a sensitive baby so i just waited to see if he was ok, and after 5 mins when the bubbles
left he was happy but the welts remained until i got him out and then they subsided alot.  

i probably wouldnt buy this product again, only because of my sons reaction to the product and that i can get more bubbles out of my other cheaper less known brands for
the same amount of product.

I just used this everyday last week for DD1 (2) and DD2 (7 months) and found it to be a nice product.

Firstly, it smells absolutely lovely and neither child's skin showed any trace of irritation. It bubbled very nicely and bubbles lasted the whole bath (about 15 minutes) and you didn't need to use all that much.

Johnsons NO MORE TEARS formula has prevailed yet again with both children happily splashing around with their eyes fully open.

I will be switching over to this from the Bedtime Bath purely on the smell and the bubbles!

Firstly I love that this packaging conforms with the rest of the Johnsons range, but yet a little different too. You know that it is a Johnsons product just by looking at it.

Secondly, I have always been a Johnsons user (milk bath wash) and this one did not fail me. Smells beautiful and my DS loved playing with the bubbles.

Thank you for allowing me to review this products.

Thank you for sending us a bottle of this product to trial!
I have four children (4yr & 2yrs old) who are all bathed together. They typically have very sensitive skin, so to be honest I was somewhat reluctant to try a new bath wash product - however we were pleasantly surprised.
The wash has a very pleasant, mild smell, which everybody liked. It appears to be very gentle on the skin, as none of my children have shown any reactions - however despite claiming to be "no tears" the kids do complain that it stings their eyes. The bottle is a good size and dispenses easily.
Our only complaint is the lack of bubbles. It's more of a "foaming" wash than a bubble bath, it would be a little more fun if the bubbles lasted longer and were larger.
Overall we've been very pleased with this product and would certainly consider purchasing it in the future.
