Remember my post about the Johnson & Johnson Healthy Essentials, ‘La Familia de Hoy’ campaign?!  You can read it here if you need a reminder! 🙂

Well…it turns out that the family I selected as my favorite (and that you may voted for by way of my post), won the contest!!  Yay!!  The Jimenez family was chosen to represent Johnson & Johnson this year in their Healthy Essentials, La Familia de Hoy campaign!!  Juan, Biviana and their three children: Elisa, Diego and Benicio are a modern, active, multicultural family – representative of all the values that Latinos relate to and care about. Congrats, Jimenez family!!!

jimenez familyBecause I was one of the bloggers that wrote about the Jimenez family, I was selected to not only announce the winning family on my blog, but also received a number of complimentary Johnson&Johnson products!!  Thank you, Johnson & Johnson!!!

Anyone who has been a postdoc in academia, (‘specially a postdoc with kids and who’s paying for daycare), knows that money is not plentiful, haha, so freebies are ALWAYS welcome!! 😛

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw that we use all but one of the products they sent!!  Well…maybe the hubs uses that one product, but…hmm, let’s just say he doesn’t, haha!!  TOTALLY joking!!!  The product is still in the box…happy to gift it to anyone who does use it! 😀  Anyway, take a look at what they sent:

jj productsI hadn’t actually used Lubriderm lotion before, or the Johnson’s baby shampoo and leave-in conditioner, but I have become a fan of all three!  My husband doesn’t like Lubriderm lotion because he thinks it’s too greasy, but I didn’t find that at all.  I’ve used it every day since it arrived!

I also tried the shampoo on both kids (even on my own hair) and was pleasantly surprised as well!  I like the smell (very important, though I do favor the lavender  scented version instead) and it works well for both boys! My mane did require a heavy duty conditioner after using this shampoo, but that is not unusual…it usually takes a pretty strong conditioner to tame this mane!

Here, I’m using the Johnson’s baby shampoo and conditioner on my youngest.

By the way, I TRIED to get a picture of him that was not blurry, but was hugely unsuccessful, so a blurry pic is what you get!  You get the picture…literally, haha!! 😛

I was excited to have been selected as one of the bloggers to join this campaign back in November, and even more so to announce that the family I chose, won!  Congratulations again, Jimenez family and many thanks for Johnson & Johnson for the wonderful products you sent for me and my family!!
