Johnson & Johnson has been a trusted household brand since the early 1900’s.  They are continuing in that good reputation today both through the wonderful health products they offer via their family of consumer companies, as well as through their humanitarian work.

I was sent a Johnson & Johnson Healthy Essentials pack to review.

We don’t use Splenda or other artificial sweetners so I won’t be able to give you a review on that one.  But here is a little info about Splenda Essentials:

SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™: this new line of new products from the SPLENDA® Brand gives you more than just the benefit of reducing calories from sugar, they also provide added essential nutrients you need every day. Varieties are available with fiber, antioxidants or B Vitamins. ($4.29/80-count box, available at grocery stores, supermarkets and online at

I love the smell of Johnson’s baby lotion.  While perfect for most babies and children, my children have eczema and need something thicker, more moisturizing, and without the fragrance (Johnson & Johnson’s Aveeno Baby brand has some wonderful products for kids with sensitive skin).

Johnson’s® Baby Lotion: Healthy skin begins with proper moisture balance, even for babies. JOHNSON’S® Baby Lotion can help prevent moisture loss from baby’s natural skin barrier. JOHNSON’S® Baby Lotion can be used to “baby” adult skin, too! ($2.99/15 oz., available at food, drug and mass merchandisers nationwide)

Sweet, stylish bandaids for women.  I have to admit that I kind of chuckled when I saw the  BAND-AID® Brand by Cynthia Rowley Adhesive Bandages “glamorous” Band-Aids, but really, when I think about it, I’ll feel much more dignified sporting a Cynthia Rowley Band-Aid than I do when I’m wearing a Buzz Lightyear Band-Aid.

I have a love-hate relationship with LISTERINE® mouth wash.  I love all the germ fighting, plaque and gingivitis reducing, and breath freshening it does, but, man, does it burn!  My face turns read and I tear up, but I know it is for my own good.

Wanna know my 2 absolute favorites?

Drumroll please!

The Aveeno® Active Naturals™ Daily Moisturizing Lotion is Amazing! It is clinically proven to relieve dry skin.  The bottle also states that it moisturizes for 24 hours and is fragrance free.  What moisturizer moisturizes for 24 hours?!  This one definitely did!  I wish I’d known about this stuff when I lived in Utah.  It is crazy dry there year round and in the winter my skin was so dry I was always itchy.  It does get a little dry here in San Antonio during winter so I put some of this on every morning after my shower. Even my husband (not knowing I was trying a new lotion) remarked how soft my skin was.

My other favorite is the NEUTROGENA® HAND CREAM Norwegian Formula®.  This is another one that is perfectly suited for those in dry climates.  This is my new favorite hand cream.  I used to use another brand, and, while it was an amazing moisturizer, it was VERY greasy.  This is an amazing moisturizer and is not greasy at all–best of both worlds. This hand cream is scented.  Normally, I prefer unscented products, I love the scent of this.  It is a very light scent, too.  In fact last week when I had the flu, the skin between my upper lip and my nose was getting terribly chapped.  I couldn’t find the vaseline so I used the Neutrogena Hand Cream.  Even right under my nose all night, the scent was not to strong and the moisturizing effects were wonderful.

How you can save $190 and help feed those in need

Today, January 8th, your local newspaper and will have $190 in coupon savings for Johnson & Johnson family of consumer companies! That is quite a lot of money to be saved. I generally don’t use coupons very often because we simply don’t purchase the kinds of food that coupons are produced for.  Johnson & Johnson products, on the other hand, are things we use in our home.  Lotion, first aid, hygiene supplies are always a necessity.  It is nice to be able to save money on these essential items.

Not only is Johnson & Johnson looking out for your family with these savings, but during the week of Jan. 8th-15th Johnson & Johnson will donate 1 meal (up to 1 million meals) to FEEDING AMERICA® for each of these coupons redeemed.  Just think, for each Johnson & Johnson product you purchase with one of the Healthy Essential savings pack coupons you are helping someone receive a much needed meal.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies and received products to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
