I have been compensated by Johnson’s® Baby for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.
Being a mom or three who travels all the time has left me in some pretty precarious situations with the need for things I have not had with me.
We all know that necessity is the mother of invention and rather than buckling three kids up in car seats after being unpacked in a rental home or resort, or trying to replace what I forgot, I got creative. It takes too much to get three kids up and out of our room or a rental home so I just try to make due. Making due has allowed me to curate a rather well-weathered list of travel hacks that can help anyone else that travels and forget stuff.
Today, as I lavishly live life out loud I am going to share 3 travel hacks for baby lotion that you might never have thought of or used! I have so these are tested, true and fabulous for making vacation and travel go off without a hitch!
TRAVELING AS MOM
What I have learned after years of traveling and years of traveling with kids is that they have the best stuff in their bags and as a mom, you gotta learn how to rock those products. Their diaper bag transitioned into little backpacks and when they don’t pack their bags anymore, I now pack the Johnson’s® Baby lotion in my bag, because it works.
Shaving Cream Hack
I took a look at my legs as we were unpacking and ready to head to the pool and I about screamed. All week I had meant to take care of shaving. No, I am not a hairy beast but stubble in the sun is worse than hairiness on my legs.
Shaving cream in a pinch without getting under the faucet. Lather up the leg that is in need, and run the razor up from the ankle to the knee. I generally use a ‘wad’ of tissues to clean off the razor or really hot steaming water, cold water will not take the baby lotion off the razor.
*Word of caution, razors are sharp and the handle can become slick from baby lotion, so, wipe you hand with a tissue before you attempt to clean the razor. The wad of tissue should be thick enough that the razor cannot get through, yet thin enough that you can still clean the razor head.
Humidity and Hair
I have curly tresses, and I have frizzy hair. You might now believe it from some of the images you have seen, but it’s true. Warm weather is NOT my hair’s BFF and I have to say I have forgotten my ‘de-frizz’ bottle more than once! When we go out, I like to get cleaned up and feel as great as the winds blowing on me from the hot tropical sun, but without frizz containment I just am miserable.
I dug into the kid’s bag for Johnson’s® Baby Lotion. The clean, fresh smell of Johnson’s® Baby Lotion is just one of the great perks of using this hack. However, it is not just about that fresh smell wafting about, it’s about a game changer!
I rub a dime size amount into the palm of my hand, and then I rub it through my hair, from the underneath first and then with the remaining amount on the top of my hair from the roots down. Goodbye frizz and hello to soft and shiny hair that is so much less frizzy!
Polyester and Nylon Nightmares
While I am not going to bash material that packs without issues, that can be rolled into a ball and still look like a million bucks when you unroll the packed wad, I am going to say this material is not your body’s friend.
Polyester anything in my book is King of Cling and cling and heat does not work. A style is not fashion if it is sticking to you, cause you are writing the book of ‘What not to Wear!’
Clothing static cling will disappear if you use Johnson’s® Baby lLotion You will need your Johnson’s® Baby lotion, a quarter-sized amount of lotion. Squeeze this drop of lotion into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together, you don’t want the lotion to show on your hands, but you want your hands freshly ‘moistened’ from putting this on. Go to the inside of the Polyester Prince of clothing piece and rub it down from the top to the bottom.
The static won’t be clinging anymore and the Polyester will have met its match. This is true for those nylon pieces as well. While this clothing is great for packing, it needs a little help when styling, so beware of the cling!
Finally, (if you have traveled to a cold place and you have for some reason decided to wear pantyhose (eye roll) rub this on the pantyhose so they do not stick to your clothing. Simple and easy!
Where to Find Johnson’s® Baby Lotion
Finding Johnson’s® Baby lotion is easy, just head to your local Walmart. You will find it in the aisle with diapers and I found my on the end cap because it is so popular with moms and dads already, just add a few more reasons to join into the love on the Johnson’s® Baby lotion.
Purchase a small bottle and a large bottle, I toss one in our bags all the time. In fact, I just leave on in the piece of luggage I have for my trips since I take the same bag every time! Lavishly live travel out loud with my easy hacks to combat static cling, hair frizz and shaving ease!
