Wouldn't recommend

Review Text: 
I purchased this product as I was concerned about possible health issues with using talc. I knew this powder was going to feel different from talc, but it's rough and coarse and made my skin feel horrible. I could have put up with that if it did its job well, but contrary to the claim that it's twice as absorbent as talc, I found it to be less absorbent. I dislike waste, but I hated this product so much that it went in the bin.

Cotton touch range

Review Text: 
I can't actually believe some of the reviews im reading on this product with all 3 of my children I would never purchase no different than johnsons bedtime range then I came across this newer range and I have not looked back since i won't even use the bedtime no more ! The smell is AMAZING the lotion lasts on my child's skin with its scents for at least 12 hours !! The talc is just fine for the others stating about they wouldn't use it on children there's absolutely nothing wrong with it my child's 2 and perfectly fine my mom who has religiously used talc day in day out for years on end has even started using it and she's a queen of perfection but she hasn't moaned not once either!! Johnsons this range was just perfect to bring out don't let the bad reviews bring you down your sales lines tell you different:))))

Very absorbent. Love it

Review Text: 
Other reviewers state it's rough and yes it is coarser than talc, but the major positive is that it is NOT talc based. I find that I use MUCH less than talc as it is more absorbent, and therefore it lasts longer. The smell is fine, not overpowering. Personally I prefer the all corn starch powder that Johnson used to produce, but now that is only available online from US at a ridiculously high price. I really hope they continue producing this powder. Just a word of caution, if you want a non talc powder, don't be fooled by the Fresh Powder which has very similar packaging. That is talc based.

I like it!!

I seem to be in the minority but I love it! I use the lotion and the 2in1 bath aswell. The smell is gorgeous but I don’t seem to be able to get it anywhere any more. Maybe it’s been discontinued as nobody else agrees with me!

Dreadful

Review Text: 
I have used Johnson’s baby talc for years and love it but this new cotton touch talc is terrible. It clumps up and leaves ‘bits’ on your skin. Very disappointing and I will not use it again.

Take it off the shelves

Review Text: 
I use the normal one every day and it’s perfect so thought I’d give this a go.. wish I hadn’t. The label wouldn’t come off I had to pierce the paper through to the holes and it still doesn’t come out well as it’s so clumpy and thick. The product is so dry and thick and left loads of ‘bits’ on my skin like little clumps. It’s that dry and thick it won’t rub in properly, had to wash it straight back off. Luckily I didn’t use it on my baby before I tested it out on myself!!!! I don’t understand why you’ve made this it’s really, really awful. I rely on your products and this is a huge letdown!

Disappointed

Review Text: 
I don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to after using this. Firstly I couldn't remove the sticker on the top and when I did manage it came off in pieces. Secondly the powder clumped when I used it resulting in my baby being covered in bits of powder..very strange and completely different from the usual Johnson powder that I buy. I will probably just buy supermarket own brand in future as this stuff is really disappointing.
