Before going on vacation to the beach at the beginning of the summer, I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few necessities. I like to travel with trial sized products of soap, toothpaste, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, etc. The trial or "travel" sized products take up less room when packing, and that's important when you're packing for five people, for an entire week. It also takes up less space in the bathroom where you are staying during your vacation, so I like taking those smaller sized products with me when I travel.

While looking through the bins containing travel sized products, a very pretty, lavender colored, 2 ounce bottle of **JOHNSON'S SOFTLOTION Melt Away Stress Body Lotion** caught my eye. I guess it's true that packaging is everything, in some cases. It certainly was with this product. I wouldn't have bought it if the container had not caught my attention. In any case, I opened the small bottle and was very impressed with it's fragrance. It said **"Melt Away Stress Body Lotion"** on the front, and I really think just the aroma melted away a little of my stress right then and there! I bought two of the small bottles and took them with me to the beach.

I am even more impressed with this lotion now, after having used it. I used all of one of the bottles I bought while I was on vacation, and I have kept the second bottle in my purse. I have used almost all of the second bottle, now. I need to get a couple more of them as soon as possible.

**JOHNSON'S SOFTLOTION Melt Away Stress Body Lotion** smells soft and light, and airy. It contains Chamomile, which is known for it's calming effect. I have to admit that there wasn't very much to be stressed out about while I was at the beach, but I still love this lotion. It's feminine enough that my husband leaves it alone, which is another plus. It isn't the very best moisturizer I have ever used, but most people don't have as dry skin as I have. For me, it's perfect for touch-ups after heavy moisturizing, and it's a wonderful hand and forearm lotion. For people with normal or even somewhat dry skin, it would be a great moisturizer, I'm sure. It's color is the same pretty lavender as it's container. I don't know why that would matter, but for some reason, it does. It's also really good to use after taking a bath or shower. It smells so nice and it's not sticky, so you don't feel like you need to bathe again. I hate it when that happens. It's a really creamy, not too thin and not too thick body lotion, that smells fabulous. I will continue to buy and use **JOHNSON'S SOFTLOTION Melt Away Stress Body Lotion** on a regular basis.

That's pretty much all I have to say about this lotion, which I have come to really like a lot. Now I will tell you what **JOHNSON'S** has to say about it:

*"The brand that nurtured you as a baby, has developed a body care line to nurture you again. This fast absorbing lotion, enriched with chamomile and an exclusive AROMASOOTHE fragrance with a hint of lavender, helps you feel calm and relaxed. The nurturing formula intensely moisturizes for 24 hours to restore your skin's softness. **JOHNSON'S SOFTLOTION Melt Away Stress Body Lotion** is the only lotion with exclusive **'AROMASOOTHE'** fragrance that helps you feel calm and relaxed."*

**DIRECTIONS:** *"Breathe in deeply and massage lotion over your entire body."*

**SAFETY TIP:** *"Keep out of reach of children."*

**INGREDIENTS:** *Water, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Dimethicone, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Carbomer, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Methylparaben, Cocoglycerides, Tetrasodium EDTA, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Oleate, Red 33, and Blue 1. May also contain: Sodium Hydroxide.*

I'm really glad I happened to see the little bottles of **JOHNSON'S SOFTLOTION Melt Away Stress Body Lotion ** while I was looking for products to take on vacation. I used it on my hands and arms before I began writing this review. Each time I use it, it smells and feels better than I remembered, and I just love it that much more!

Scent
I LOVE the soft, lavender and chamomile fragrance of this lotion. It's not strong at all but it's wonderful, light and airy scent helps melt stress away.

Absorption
Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion absorbs very easily and quickly. It isn't sticky or gooey at all, either.

Effectiveness
I have VERY dry skin, so for me, this lotion is effective, but it isn't excellent. It hydrates my extremely thirsty skin fine for a few hours, but i do have to reapply it after 2 to 3 hours. If you have sort of dry skin, normal skin, or normal to oily skin, this lotion would probably work better and longer for you than it does for me..and I'm a huge fan of it, so that's saying a lot!

Like me, I think most America's have come to associate Johnson & Johnson products with top notch status. Especially, the baby care line (which I happen to love using on myself) but their new adult care products are not so great. I was highly disappointed with this purchase. I actually bought two of the same scents at one time because I needed to restock my lotions and I figured that this particular scent would be fool proof. I was so so so so wrong. When you think of familiar fragrances, you have an idea of what it will smell like. Some how Johnson and Johnson got it all wrong and I think I was more stressed than before I put it on. It doesn't smell good nor does it feel good. I didn't feel moisturized and smooth or silky. I even decided to wait for the first application to full sink in and then re-apply. NOPE! Nothing changed. It's thin and watery feeling and the scent is horrible! I love lavendar...I love aromatherapy all together so how in the world did they miss the mark on THIS? And for the price, I could've purchased something generic and get far better results. Save you money, get something else. I don't believe in returning products like lotions so I'm stuck with these, but trust me...if I could return it, I most certainly would. This doesn't melt away stress, just your money.

best lotion ever

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I absolutely love everything about this lotion. It leaves me smooth, not-sticky, relaxed and feeling great. Other lotions I've dealt with lotion that were sticky, takes awhile to dry, etc. I love that this lotion not only smells good, leaves you relaxed and smooth, but the fact when I wash my hands a few times and I am still smooth. Other lotions once you wash your hands even once then your left feeling like you wasted the lotion. Truly the best lotion ever. I have super sensitive skin so I'm glad I found this lotion. And I was able to buy it for cheaper at big lots store. I definitely would and have recommended this lotion to family and friends. I haven't found any other lotion that does it all for me. Finding a great product is hard, but finding a perfect one is even harder. I was lucky to find this perfect lotion.

Scent
Amazing

Absorption
Leaves you super smooth &the stays smooth even after a few washes.

Effectiveness
Definitely works wonders

Johnson's Melt Away Stress Body Lotion is awesome!

By 

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion is awesome! I started using this lotion about 3 months ago, applying it right out of the shower. First of all, it smells amazing! I love the lavender scent. I actually wasn't too fond of the lavender scent prior to using this lotion, but after using it, I just started loving it. It is just so relaxing and refreshing. Additionally, I apply it all over my body and it really does leave the skin feeling smooth, moisturized, and soft throughout the day or night. This product is highly recommended for people who have dry skin, or people who have semi-dry skin and just want to stay moisturized, especially in the wintertime or when it gets cold. I think that even for people whose skin is already moisturized (although I don't know anyone who has perfect moisturized skin), it would still be a great product to use because the product is also non-greasy. I would repurchase!

not for kids only

By 

from Vero Beach, FL

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I love this stuff. I keep a bottle in my desk at the office and have to hide it from my co-workers because if I leave it out, it will be gone in a week. it's that good. it leaves your skin soft like a baby's but it doesn't smell like baby lotion (not that there's anything wrong with baby lotion, I use that, too.) the lavender and chamomile scent is so relaxing and inviting. i get asked all the time what the scent i am wearing is and most people don't believe me that it's just lotion. then, of course, they want to use some and once again, I have to hide the bottle. this is also an item that is easy to find in most wal marts and target stores as well. as you can see if you have read any of my other reviews, I love a good bargain and have been able to score some coupons for this every now and then. i recommend this stuff for soft, touchable skin that smells divine! let's just hope that J&J doesn't ever decide to discontinue it!

I am willing to pay for quality and this product is worth it.

This lotion makes your skin so soft without that greasy feeling.

By 

from Oakdale, CA

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I have shyed away from the Johnson's brand associating it with the baby lotion I rubbed on my children when they were younger.  But I came across the Melt Away Stress Body Lotion and decided to give it a whirl.  Now, I am totally addicted to it.  I slather it on me every night before bed, and  after my showers.  This lotion has a wonderful, relaxing scent (chamomile and lavender), but nothing overpowering at all.  Not to mention, it works great on my dry skin (something needed as the cold weather approaches) without leaving me with a greasy feeling.   Absolutely LOVE this product!

Pleasant Smelling and None greasy

By 

from Apex, NC

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I recently bought a trial size of Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion. I figured I give it a try. They have several other kinds in this line. I chose this one because it said "melt away stress and Lavendar" in it. I love the scent of Lavendar.

True to their word, this lotion was fast absorbing and was not greasy feeling, which I can't stand and many lotions tend to do. Or else they will leave a tacky residue feeling too. I noticed also that the scent of Lavendar was also very light, as stated (exclusive AROMASOOTHE -trademarked), and not over powering. The product also has chamomile in it which should be noted and traditionally is known for it's calming property's.

I can say that I did find myself calmed and relaxed, and my skin was definitely moisturized. Since my sking is overly dry, I needed to reapply it before the 24 hours were up so your mileage may vary on that claim. It comes in a purplr bottle. I will be buying another normal size!

Johnson's Melt Away Stress Lotion--Love it!

By 

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I LOVE this lotion! It smells fantastic and not at all overwhelming. It is non-greasy, dries quickly and keeps my skin moisturized all day.

The only con is that the only full size container is a pump. I've used the travel-sized container and it seems like the one with the pump is slightly thinned out--the thicker lotion is better.

Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion :(

By 

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Johnson's Softlotion Melt Away Stress Body Lotion:

I have always loved Johnsons and Johnsons baby products, that why I was excited when they came out with a lotion for adults.  I loved the smell and was excited to try it.  I was not impressed.  It is very greasy--in fact---probably the most greasy lotion I have ever tried.  After applying it to your skin, it just sorta sits on the top and does not absorb into the skin.  The only beneficial part in the smell.  It smells great and reminds me of my childrens products.  It is very relaxing at the end of a hard day, however, I would just as soon just smell the lotion in the bottle then apply it to my skin!!! Once my bottle runs out, I will not be purchasing it again.  Thats for sure!!!  While I will continue to be a loyal customer to Johnsons and Johnsons baby products ( I love their bedtime bath wash--it smells so good!) --I will be sticking to the baby products!! They should have quit while they were ahead.
