Asda Baby Wipes
Advantages: Cotton soft and fragrance free
In the younger days when my two little ones were tiny babies we stuck mainly to expensive branded wet wipes as they were more delicate for their young skin but since they've become toddlers we've swapped to Asda own baby wipes, their skin is a little tougher nowadays and even though Christopher suffers with eczema on his body his face seems immune to the attacks so we use the wipes to clean up his mucky mush as he has all the delicacy when eating of a toothless St. Bernard dog.
Asda own baby wipes come in several different varieties from their Smartprice wipes to their Little Angels cotton soft wipes but it is the Little Angels fragrance free wipes that have become our regular purchase. Coming in a white package with a pattern of greeny blue feathers "floating" you are given the immediate impression that these wipes will be as pure and gentle as they could be, the wipes are neatly pleated into the packaging and as you pull out one wipe the next starts to follow making it easy to get hold of and saving any unnecessary fumbling which is never ideal when you're trying to change the nappy of a wriggling newborn. Each packet has a plastic re-sealable lid allowing you to keep the wipes fresh and make sure they don't dry out, but they also initially come with a peel off sticker over the access hole so you know not to buy a packet of wipes if the sticker has been tampered with. The wipes are soft rectangles of cotton like material, although thinner, and are moist to the touch, they are enriched with baby lotion to help the "cleaning" process and also contain Aloe Vera to help soothe and protect against any delicate bottom suffering nappy rash, the wipes are fragrance free as promised so there's no worry that any added perfume will react with or harm babies skin.
Being Asda own wipes they are naturally only available from Asda however they cost 1.09 per pack or can be purchased on the Multibuy offer of 2 packs for £2.00, 3 packs for £3.00 or 6 packs for £5.00. There are 80 wipes per pack. Cotton soft fragrance wipes are also available in pink packaging for the same price.
We use the wipes for a multitude of things, naturally Elsa who is still nappy clad gets the full body experience of hands, face and rear, Christopher usually only has hands or face cleaned with the wipes while I will use them for removing make up on a night time. The wipes really are cotton soft and a quick rub over my eye make up on an evening will easily remove any eye shadow and eyeliner I've used, the wipes leave my skin feeling cool, clean and soft and only 1 wipe is needed to remove any traces of make up from my face, I'm a light user though so someone who wears heavy make up may need more wipes. Christopher seems to suffer no skin reactions from contact with the wipes which is good news for all those eczema sufferers out there and even when a bit more rigourous use than a simple quick wipe over the chops, usually as a result of spaghetti for tea, is applied his skin is still happy, the wipes have even managed to remove face paint on the odd few occasions he's had a fancy dress party to attend. The same result can be said for Elsa's skin, despite the wipes being used in the most delicate of areas there have never been any reactions or complaints, other than on a winters morning when the wipes are a little chilly! She has had no bouts of nappy rash since using the wipes so it would seem the added Aloe Vera does its job.
It's hard to talk about the wipes in terms of how long they'll last, obviously if you're only wiping a small pair of sticky hands then one wipe will be enough but every parent knows, and those who aren't parents can imagine, each poop varies. I won't get into minor details about volume or consistency needless to say some "occasions" will require more wipes then others. The wipes are a good size though and can clean up a fair amount before a new wipe is needed, on the slightly more pleasant tasks of hands and faces you can even use both sides of the wipe, making them last even longer. We usually get through a pack of 80 wipes in a week which is a minimum of 3 nappies a day (not all of them dirty I should add) and countless hands and faces.
While I am likely to spend the first few weeks of baby3's life using Johnsons or Pampers wipes I will inevitably make the change to Asda wipes and use them for all 3 of my children, I know they are gentle enough for the delicate skin and do a great job of cleaning up all things yucky, they are great value for money compared to the well known brands and being able to pick them up on a variety of offers is a real bonus with larger families benefiting from buying in bulk, you may as well make the most of the offers as the wipes are items that can be stored for future use. I can highly recommend them.
Summary: Great baby wipes at affordable prices.
