I didn't know much about Johnson's baby oil until recently. I had this when my child was a baby and it did work for baby massages, but other than that I didn't know what to do with it. Since then I have discovered many other uses for it. It can be used for a makeup remover, unsticking a zipper, helping with squeaking in your house, removing gum, shaving, removing stickers, getting paint off of skin, making a bath oil or furniture polish and a lot more. It is handy to have in your house. It is a little greasy, but I think that's the point. This also is great for massaging adult backs also. I would recommend giving this stuff a try. I would use it again. Effectiveness It is effective in doing multiple jobs. It's great for giving your baby a relaxing massage before bed or for other things that you may have never thought about. Just look it up on the internet and you'll find all sorts of ways to use this product. I think that it works great. Scent It has a nice soft scent. Not much to it, but it isn't bad.
