Rating & Reviews
JOHNSON'S® Baby Extra Dry Powder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product Have been using this product for about two years. Only been able to get in sainsburys. Boots had not even heard of this product. Johnsons have made a big mistake in discontinuing this product. Obviously if you do not campaign or advertise a product do not expect the public to purchase. Have never seen an advertisement for this product. Johnsons have been sitting on a goldmine, I understand the benefits of cornstarch in womens health. Using regular talc can cause health problems in women. A tabloid newspaper did an article about 18 months ago regarding the benefits of using cornstarch. Twenty years ago my GP advised me not to use regular talc! DISAPOINTED CUSTOMER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best baby powder ever! I've been using baby powder for the last 25 years, the extra dry is the softest and finest i've ever used it never clumps and you dont get a cloud of powder when using. The only downside is i cant find it anywhere :(, B&M used to stock it at a very reasonable price of £1.49 but having problems purchasing from them as they've changed to bedtime :(:(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why have you discontinued this product ??? This is the best powder for all the family, Good Housekeeping recommended a far inferior product, mildly medicated talcum powder, which is nowhere as good as the extra dry talcum powder. Everyone to whom I recommended this product to are very disappointed that we are no longer able to buy. Reduced to trying to buy online from America, which is proving to be difficult not to mention expensive Please can we have it back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring this back Why has this been discontinued Johnsons?? I'm seriously disappointed like many others. I've also been ordering Johnsons cornstarch powder from the USA for several years but when this became available in the UK I was delighted. I remember back about 14-15 years ago you first brought it to the UK in the lavender chamomile scent and then pulled it as well. Gradually the extra dry powder became available less and less and was only available in savers. Now it's gone from shelves completely and I'm gutted. I stocked up in savers as my whole family uses this powder. We hate the regular talcum powder. I have only 3 left and we are using it sparingly. Anything else just isn't the same and I don't see why this is still available in the USA but not here. There clearly are people wanting to buy it and resorting to being ripped off online. Please please please bring this back to stay as well as Magnolia Petals and Lavender & Chamomile. This is an absolute travesty that we can't get this anymore!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought Johnson's extra dry baby powder some months ago and was very pleased with it as it is a very fine, light powder and is lovely to use. I do not want to go back to talc as it is thick and heavy to use! However I cannot find anywhere that still stocks this product. Help!!!! Can anyone help me to find this again, please?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRING IT BACK!!! WHY have you discontinued???? I rely on trips to the USA (mine and friends visits) to stock up on the Cornstarch Aloe Vera Talc so when Extra Dry came here I was over the moon!! Alas, no marketing/advertising has not done this product any favours, normal talc is claggy and not a patch on the cornstarch version :( Terribly unhappy as I'm down to my last 3 containers and no trip to USA on the horizon :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and Easy! I have been using this product on my children ever since they were born and am still using it for my entire family. It is the only powder that I've found that keeps the baby dry, no rash and its softest, finest and easiest on the skin!
