Who is it for? Johnson’s Baby Shampoo is a mild hair cleanser for babies but it is also a multipurpose cleanser for delicate makeup brushes and beauty sponges. It is an excellent body wash as well!

Johnson’s Baby Shampoo

Price- Rs.55 for 60ml

My Experience with Johnson’s Baby Shampoo


This shampoo comes in a see-through bottle with a flip-top cap. It is available in various sizes. Recently the packaging and the formula have been revised. The new formula is harmful chemical free.

Colour & Texture

It is a runny liquid of light yellow color. When mixed with water, it creates a moderate amount moisturizing lather. It does not leave sticky residue behind but does not make the skin dry as well.


It has a faint floral fragrance. The fragrance fades off very soon. The fragrance will not irritate the sensitive sensory system of the babies.


I read somewhere that baby shampoos make great makeup brush cleansers. That is the reason I went for this cleanser in spite of being a mature adult. Well, the truth is, I tried it for my hair but I needed too much product and the after effect was not very satisfactory as my scalp was quite oily before washing. I must admit, its moisturizing property shows full on the result when I am washing my makeup sponges and brushes with it. It cleanses all makeup residues without drying them out. I haven’t experienced any noticeable feather shedding in my brushes. I sometimes use it as my shave gel for the legs. It also works well as my body wash. I also make a DIY body scrub with this cleanser, some oil and salt or sugar.

What did I like about it?
  1. Multipurpose mild liquid cleanser
  2. Makes my makeup brushes and sponges squeaky clean
  3. Does not degrade the beauty sponges or brushes
  4. Can be used as body wash substitute
  5. An excellent replacement of expensive shave gels
  6. No tears formula
  7. Available in various sizes
  8. A light pleasing floral fragrance
  9. Hydrating formula
What didn’t I like?

I don’t know how it will perform on the sensitive scalp of babies but as a brush cleanser, I have no complaints at all!

Would I Recommend?

I would certainly recommend this as a body wash and brush cleanser liquid. I will buy it again as my go-to cleanser for makeup brushes and sponges. It works like any good quality makeup brush cleanser but costs just a fraction. Give it a try guys!
