Johnsons Baby Powder

Johnsons Baby powder…

“No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.”~Eleanor Roosevelt~

While my buddy and I are freshening up in the ladies room after having our lunch. She noticed and was surprise to see me using a familiar plastic container of baby talc or powder and was actually laughing. I asked why, I already have a slight idea of why she was laughing. She asked me why I never got over with using this particular baby powder? Saying I have been using it since we’re still in our 20s.

I looked at her and yes I admitted it that I haven’t gotten over using my Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder. According to my mom, I’ve been using it as a baby, toddler, kinder, elementary, high school and even during college and yes until up to now.

Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder..

I had it figured out that I’ve been loyal to this product all these years. I am now a mother of a teenage son and yet I’m still using a baby powder. ahaha!

She asked me if I am aware that Johnson & Johnson’s  had innovations and came up with those that comes in compact and yes I knew it. I must admit, I’ve tried it, Its just that the puff being worn out in time hassles me. There are puffs that you can buy anywhere but I opted to use the loose powder with my hankie if its time to apply it on my face and body.

It refreshes me, addresses “oiliness overload” (as teens nowadays calls it), and the scent is so light and gentle. It didn’t go against the colognes/ perfumes I’ve used all these years. And the most important thing I like about it is it didn’t give me any problem on skin rashes.

As faithful as I am. My alternative are the talcs I discovered from Marks & Spencer. I’ve been using them during college trying all variants. Until I became loyal to the the purple one which is lavender. So I used them alternately. Dedicating the M&S for special occasion and my J&J as a daily habit, especially after taking a bath. =)

I intentionally kept the old bottles thinking & anticipating they will soon be vintage and would fit in my shabby chic type bedroom..=)
The latest can from M&S.. I made use of the old ones as vase for my flowers! =)

You would not believe this, even my son is a powder junkie, being a teen already, he would still ask me to put powder in his back sometimes! It’s really nice to be a baby! ahaha! Especially when you’re a Johnson & Johnson’s baby! Thank you J&J!

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
