Default Jhonson's baby oil as moisturizer

I have read the the Jhonson's baby oil is really good if we apply soon after shower. Is this true? I know it has vitamin E and is great for babies. But as an adult, did someone use it soon after shower and found good results? Any suggestions if i shoud try to switch?

Right now I am using Aveeno.

Heck, motor oil is an effective moisturizer. However, Johnson's baby oil smells better.

I use it (baby oil) after I take a shower, and it seems to work quite well.

I like natural oils instead. Baby oil breaks me out.(but all synthetics seems too, personal curse..lol)

You should apply any moisture strait from the shower on moist skin. Or even mist your skin before applying if you are dry.

Better yet, use it IN the shower. Wash, apply baby oil, rinse off just before leaving the shower. After you towel off, THEN apply your normal lotion. You will need much less lotion and you'll be shocked how smooth your skin is.

Is it going to be too oily on skin Cabe or its going to blend?

I used the baby oil for a decade before the market was flooded with all sorts of alternatives. I mainly loved a few drops in a soak bath. Wonderful stuff and at a great price.

I use baby oil just out of the shower before I dry off. It is great for my extremely dry skin. Inexpensive and smells good too! The only problem with putting it in a bath is the mess it makes of your tub...

Not as a moisturizer but to seal the moisturizer in longer. I put it on over the moisturizer for that reason. And not necessarily Johnson's. I use whatever brand is on sale. They all work for me.
