After the success of Baby Oil, Johnson introduces two new products, Baby Oil Gel and Baby Creamy Oil. And being a sucker for cocoa and shea butter, I tried both the Johnson Baby Oil Gel with Shea and Cocoa Butter and Johnson Baby Creamy Oil Cocoa & Shea Butter to see how they compare.


The Baby Oil Gel with Shea and Cocoa Butter is a gel version of the original Baby Oil. It contains the same ingredients with added Cocoa Butter and Shea to lock in up to 10 times more moisture on wet skin than an ordinary lotion can on dry skin. The non-runny gel texture is definitely a step-up but like Baby Oil, this can feel greasy and will leave behind shine.

The Baby Creamy Oil Cocoa & Shea Butter, on the other hand, is a light-weight lotion. Again, it is loaded with Cocoa & Shea Butter to provide long-lasting moisturization. Despite its name, there is nothing “oily” about it. The lotion sinks in right away and leaves my skin incredibly soft without the slightest heavy feeling. I also love the slightly stronger, sweet scent of the cocoa butter. This has now become one of my HGs!

Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel and Johnson’s Baby Creamy Oil are available at drugstores nationwide for $3.29.

  1. I have you listed as one of the blogs I like to read on bloglovin. I like your article about baby oil gel Vs baby oil cream. I currently use the baby oil gel because my skin sucks up lotion,but I am considering trying the baby creamy oil because when I use baby oil gel its kind of greasy and I have to apply it atleast 15mins before I put on my clothes so it won’t get into my clothes. Great article.

    • Thanks! I have the same problem with baby oil too that’s why I prefer the Baby Creamy Oil. It ROCKS!
