To boycott or not to boycott?

Been reading a lot on the Boycott US and Israel products.

Been getting a lot of forwarded email about this too.

And have been trying hard to keep my eyes, heart and mouth off McDonalds for months. Yes I am trying to do my part here. And the Prosperity Burger looks so damn irresistible. But I have managed so far.

But one brand that I still find really hard to ignore/resist/avoid is the Johnson & Johnson's baby products. Husayn's have been using the Johnson's Baby cream and lotion since he was born and I don't know how his skin will react to other products.
This Johnson's baby cream really work wonders! If we went balik kampung and Husayn was bitten by mosquitoes or something, the bengkak will disappear really fast if I apply this cream straight to his bengkak. This cream also helped when Husayn's was a few weeks old and his face were covered with rashes. And I also have done an experiment and found out that the cream can also be a replacement for my Olay Total Effects too! All this for RM9.90 only (and sometimes even less when Vitacare is having a sale!)

And I applied the above lotion to Husayn's whole body twice a day.

So how do I actually boycott this products? If anybody know any products that work as well as the above do tell me. Might try. And it might work. And not from US or Israel please. Hehe.

Anyway I'm on holiday today! Hurrah! Selamat Hari Wilayah!

we are in the same predicament, my cuties keep on insisting for me to boycott certain product but i find it difficult considering we have been using them all our life, i will try harder, yelah, that's the only way i know besides extending prayers to support the palestin

there's a more important thing than boycotting - make sure you follow all Islamic rules, the rukun Islam, rukun Iman, etc.

my opinion, no need to boycott if you just doing it for other ppl. do it Lillahi Taala is much better.

I never buy this product...instead of getting it free of charge...hehe..
so, I dont have to boycott...or must I ? boycott from using it??? since I contribute not a cent to this J&J ???

*my family member work wif this company...must he resign?? and stop giving me those free stuff???? huhu..
kompius...kompius...(ader gak selfish aku nih....)

To you supermom, its up to you...If u hv choice....then, go for it...boycott...!! But if u hv no choice...nothing wrong, to keep on buying n using it....
