“ Brand: Asda / Type: Baby Wash „
I have 2 beautiful grandchildren and my daughter is expecting her 3rd child later this year so at the moment I am buying baby products I either buy a lot for my grandchildren when they come to visit or sleep over at my home or products I haven't bought before. This baby bath I have bought a couple of times and is one I like quite a lot. So I decided to buy a couple of bottles while on special offer and keep one to stash in a little box I am making up for when my new grandbaby arrives later this year.
It comes in a plastic bottle which has a flip back lid. The name is clearly on the front and so can be easily spotted on the shelf. The liquid has a fairly rich texture and doesn't drip from the bottle while pouring it into the bath water, just flows nicely with ease. Some shops own brands sometimes tend to be too runny but this one is a nice consistency. The texture is soft and smooth.
I just pour a small amount into the water while I am running the water and it creates bubbles while the water is running. Once I have turned the tap off, I just whirl my hands in the water and lots of bubbles appear in the water, quite a lot of bubbles I must admit considering it is a cheaper brand. The liquid also creates foam which my grandchildren love because they can then play with the foam while bathing in the water and place the foam onto their noses and head like children like do in a bath.
The liquid has a nice pleasant fragrance to it, has a mild smell of Lavender which I find is really nice calming scent and really calming for a bedtime bath. The scent isn't too strong and not overpowering at all and just a nice subtle aroma. It is apparent in the bathroom while bathing the little ones and for a while later but the scent doesn't last as long as branded kind but an adequate length of time being a cheaper brand.
It cleans the body really well and while the little ones are soaking in the bath water, it is a gentle liquid and one I have found hasn't irritated the skins of my little grandchildren. It hasn't caused any irritations or rashes on their delicate skins and I think it is ideal for a new born baby too who has even a more delicate skin which is sometimes not quite as soft and smooth from just arriving into the world. I haven't actually used this product on a new born as yet but I would imagine it would soften the skin from soaking in the water.
Once the skin is dry, my grandchildren's skins don't feel rough or tight but I do always like to use a body lotion on their skins after bathing or showering just to keep it nice and moisturised and they love lotion being applied to their skins because it is part of their daily routine.
It is paraben free and hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested. Also paediatrician approved, so this is another reason I think it would be more than suitable for a new born baby. It contains Lavender and Chamomile which are calming and relaxing ingredients for a bedtime bath.
The bottle size is 500ml and I bought 2 bottles on special offer for just £1.50, the usual price is around £1.37 and so a good saving and just a couple of more pennies for the second bottle and a bargain price. I think the full asking price is also a good one and excellent value for money in my opinion. The quality of the liquid is really good too. A good way of stocking up or giving one to a family member or even sharing the cost buying 2 with a friend while shopping to save even more money.
I cannot fault this baby bath, I think it is so affordable and a very good product which is excellent for children's delicate, sensitive skins.
I will continue to buy it in the future because it cleans the body well, has a nice mild fragrance and is a gentle liquid. I highly do recommend this product and I don't think you would be disappointed in the way it cleans, calms and leaves the skin feeling in a good condition and not dry.

I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I had always used a top to toe bath wash in my girls bath but this didn't make much in the way of bubbles, as they were approaching their 2nd birthday I thought they may prefer some bubbles to play with in the bath. I remembered that I had been given a bottle of Asda's little angels bedtime bath as part of a hamper of goodies when the girls were born and so got it out to give it a try.
This bedtime bath comes in a large clear bottle, as it's clear you can see the purple bubble bath inside. I like this as I can see how fast the contents are going down and when it's time to buy a new bottle. I've been using this bottle for a couple of months and have used about a third of it which is making it good value.
The bottle has a flip top cap and is easy to squeeze allowing you to control how much is added to the bath. The shape of the bottle makes it comfortable to hold and it has a good sized base so it is stable when stood.
Using the bedtime bath
I pour a small amount under the running water and it starts bubbling up straight away. The lavender and chamomile fragrance is lovely but I haven't noticed it having a relaxing effect on my girls! They do love playing with the bubbles and it has a no tears formulation so I don't have to worry when they get it all over their faces. By the end of the bath the bubbles have nearly all disappeared but I like that I don't have to spend ages rinsing them away.
This bedtime bath is hypoallergenic and although both my girls have had dry skin patches at times they haven't had any since I've been using this product.
Price and availability
Although my bottle was 750ml it appears Asda have now reduced this to 500ml. It is available at Asda.com and in Asda stores costing £1 currently (November 2012), usual price £1.20. In comparison to other brands I think this is really good value for money.
Would I recommend?
Yes, although as I don't shop at Asda I am unlikely to use this product again which is a shame. It is a good quality bedtime bath just don't expect sleepy relaxed little ones when they get out of their bath!
With trying to save money I decided to try Asdas Little angels bedtime bubble bath as we usually use the Johnson's version. However at seeing the bigger bottle at almost half the price I thought It'd be worth giving it a go.
The bottle is clear and so you can see the bubble bath inside which is helpful as at least you know how much of it you have left. It has a flip top which is easy to pop up and down.
The bubble bath it self is purple and very thin. I found it poured really quickly out of the bottle and you also needed to use quite a lot to get some bubbled into your bath! Not only this but I found that the smell of this bubble bath was quite strong of lavender rather then mild like the Johnson's one I normally use for my children.
The bubble bath says it is tear free and I believe this as my son and daughter love splashing in the bath and even though the water was constantly going in there eyes there was no moaning!
Overall I wouldn't buy this again as although its cheaper and is a bigger bottle I found I used it a lot quicker then Johnson's as you need so much to create bubbles. However I will say my children did seem quite relaxed after there bath, but I will be sticking to Johnson's instead.
I bought this to try and save money as the Johnson's version is over double the price unless you get it on offer. This bottle is realy large it contains 750ml and is often on a 2 for £2 promotion or on it's own it costs £1.47. This product is only available in Asda.
The bottle is transparent and through it you can see the lilac coloured liquid. The label has the Little Angel's logo and advises you the product is hypoallegenic, contains soothing and calming aromas and is tear free.
The product is designed to be used before bed as part of your baby's routine to help aid a restful nights sleep. It contains a lavender and chamomile fragrance both of which are renowned for helping relax and unwind your body. The formula is gentle enough to be used as a bubble bath and also on your baby's hair and skin.
To use as a bubble bath you simply pour under warm running water. I found this thinner than the Johnson's equivalent I needed to use quite a lot to get a decent amount of bubbles that didn't disappear after 5 minutes. The bubble bath smelt awful in my opinion, it smelt heavily of lavender and reminded me of something my nan would use! I know the Johnson's one has similar ingredients but their version smells a lot nicer than this. I also used it as a body wash for my daughter, because it was thin it worked well as a wash.
After using this I can't say that my daughter was any more relaxed than after a bath with any other product. Her skin smelt like this for a which I didn't like, although it did feel soft and smooth.
In future I think I will stick to the Johnson's version.
I would only give the 1 out of 5, I really couldn't stand the smell so I wouldn't buy it again!
After we ran out of the mountain of bath products that we received in my daughters baby hamper I decided to give Asda's Little Angel range a try.
** Packaging **
This bedtime bath comes in a 750ml bottle. The bottle is opaque meaning you can see how much of the purple liquid is left inside without it being totally see-through. The flip up lid is easy to open, I can open it with just my thumb, meaning I can keep Kacie away from the running water and add this at the same time.
** Bedtime bath **
I only use a small dollop of this bedtime bath for my daughter. Upon adding it to the bath a slight lavender scent is present, it's not a strong overpowering smell so is great for young children, once the bath has finished running there is a mass of bubbles and foamy water for just the small dollop used.
As this is a bedtime bath it claims it is soothing with calming aromas and the lavender and chamomile fragrance helps children to relax. I haven't found this to be the case though. Kacie is no more calm and relaxed after bath time as she was before.
We don't use a bath wash or soap for Kacie as this bedtime bath does the treat nicely. The bubbles can work up a nice lather and they get to dirt off nice and easily. Why pay for two separate products if one can do both jobs?! Kacie likes to splash a lot (at mummy!) in the bath, and as this has a no tears formulation it doesn't bother her when she splashes the water in her face at all.
** Other info **
Little Angels bedtime bath is a range made by Asda so can only be purchased from Asda either in store or online for home delivery. It costs £1.47 for a 750 ml bottle, there are nearly always offers on for Little Angels products and currently you can buy two bottles of this for £2.50. The product is hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved, so fine for young babies and older children alike.
** Overall **
This bedtime bath is a fantastic product to use at bath time, the slight scent is perfect for young children as it isn't too overbearing, the amount of bubbles created is great. Only using a small amount of this each bath time means the bottle lasts for months. It may not be calm and relaxing but all the positives outweigh this. Considering Johnsons bedtime bath is more money for a smaller bottle I know which one we will continue to buy!
Living where I do the nearest Asda is around 15 miles away and to me a 30 mile round trip to do the shopping is not something I'd do especially when we have a rather large Tesco just 10 minutes up the road. However, my mother in law shops in Asda and when we go up to see them we always insists on not bringing our little one's toiletries as she has them in stock (she has 3 grandchildren). She swears by the Little Angels range and probably has the entire range stocked in her bathroom cabinet!
My daughter has a bath every night and especially after a 4 hour journey to get up to the in laws I like her to feel fresh and comfortable when going to bed. This is where Asda's Little Angels Bedtime Bath comes in to play. It promises to provide a soothing and calming bath which is just what is wanted to send your little one off to bed.
* Packaging *
The Bathtime Bath comes in a semi-transparent clear plastic bottle which is shaped so it is rounder at the bottom and has a slim neck. There is a white flip top lid again plastic. On the front is the pastel coloured Little Angels label which features the product name and on the back there is the ingredients list as well as contact info and all the usual blurb you would expect.
* The Wash *
~ Aroma ~
Asda claim it has lavender and chamomile in the Bedtime Bath which are two great ingredients to promote relaxation and calm and to be fair what I smelt was a lovely, delicate aroma but hardly strong on either ingredient which is fine by me but I would have liked to have picked out the lavender a bit more. However, it is a mild almost floral aroma which is nice smelling. The aroma I did find becomes a lot milder once diluted with water but subtle enough to be notice.
~ Consistency ~
Just as expected the Bedtime Bath has a thick enough consistency to come out of the bottle easily but it wasn't thin enough to end up wasting most of it all in one bath. It disperses quickly into the water and produces an amazing amount of white frothy bubbles which my daughter seems to love! You only need to use a tiny amount to use in the bath as it provides enough foam and white lather so anymore and you'd be drowning in bubbles. Around a 10p worth is ideal.
~ In Use ~
The bath water stays clear and doesn't turn lilac in colour but it does produce a nice mild aroma which is nice and delicate. I also use it is wash my daughter with instead of using a separate bath wash and it certainly does the job fine. Gets rid of those little food stains around the mouth a treat, especially after something with a tomato sauce for dinner!
Now the Bedtime Bath is supposed to calm babies and help them drift off into a nice, deep sleep. I do find that my daughter could sleep hanging upside down when it comes to bedtime and whatever bath or body wash doesn't make much difference. However, I do like the idea that the gentle, calming fragrance remains on her skin which must be a nice soothing aroma when drifting off to sleep.
I can't say whether this does or doesn't work but I find it an effective Bedtime Bath which is certainly not as expensive as Johnsons version and it does exactly the same job which is great as you'll be saving the pennies too!

* Overall *
A great Bedtime Bath for any child, toddler or adult. It would be nice if the aroma was a little stronger but that is only me being overly picky about it. A great product at a great price. Best of all the bottle lasts for quite a while as you don't need to use a lot for each use. Definitely recommended!
When I was pregnant my Mother in Law kindly purchased a number of baby bathing products for me and as my son has now used them all up we needed some more bath products.
As my son has a bath each day, sometimes twice a day we do tend to get through quite a lot of baby products and after using the Johnsons Baby Bedtime myself for a number of years I was keen to try the Asda version which was a lot cheaper and offered a lot more value for money.
The Asda Little Angels products are all themed with pastel spots and the large bath products are in unusually shaped bottles which are translucent and you can see the purple liquid inside.
Upon opening the bottle, the aroma I have to admit is not very great and has put me off purchasing before but when I received a free sample from Asda of the Head to Toe wash I decided to give it a try as once it was added to the water it was so much more fragrant.
The bedtime bath however I have to admit was a little disappointing as the aroma was so much more different to the Johnsons version which I understand it is llikely to be but I really struggled to find a relaxing aroma coming from this bath product, the fragrance however was still very nice and left a nice aroma on my son after the bath which to me is quite important but I did miss that familiar smell I am used to.
The product is nice and soft and creates a lovely bubbly bath for baby, leaving his skin fresh, clean and sweet smelling ideal after he has just filled his nappy.
The products are often on offer in Asda at 2 for £2 which when your only income is SMP you do have to be economical and I bought one of these along with the head to toe bath which I do really like.
I often find that the supermarket own brands are very competitive and often fall on a par with the leading brands and although I do prefer the Johnsons product I will purchase this item again as it represents such great value for money and it does the exact job it is required to do.
I personally believe that in most cases the supermarkets own brands are just as good as the so called premium brands so I decided to try some of Asdas little angels range. I decided that I would try some of the bedtime range as our daughter who is 5 months old refuses to go straight down on a night to my dismay.
The little angels range of toiletries are £1.47 each or you can purchase 2 for £2 which I think is a good saving and obviously are available from Asda, I purchased the bedtime bath and the bedtime body wash. The bedtime bath comes in a 750ml curved bottle wider at the bottom than at the top which is a clouded white in colour and has a flip top lid on it. The liquid inside is purple in colour and the top has a small hole in for dispensing. The fragrance is supposed to be lavender and chamomile although the lavender does take over and is supposed to help relax the baby for bed and help them to drift off to sleep.
The product is easy to dispense and simply gets squirted under the running water for the bath, from the liquid there are a fair amount of bubbles and the fragrance is quite nice as long as you like lavender. My daughters skin is always lovely and soft after being in this product without the need for any extra moisturisers but I would have to say it makes zero difference to her come bedtime. When she comes out of the bath she is dried, dressed and at this point she is very sleepy but I honestly think that is just because she has had a bath, by the time she has her bedtime bottle she is no calmer and does not go to bed any easier.
In conclusion this is a nice product which moisturises her skin and lasts for ages but no it does not calm her for bed, as a bath foam is recommended as a bedtime bath foam I could not recommended, if you want it recommending as a simple bath foam then yes I would recommend it.
The Little Angels Bedtime Bath is a product made especially for babies by Asda and is available to purchase at their supermarkets and online. I am not a mother but I purchased this product when I was looking for very mild bubble bath substitutes. I bought it along with it's sister product the Little Angels 'Head To Toe Wash' as there are always special deals on the Little Angels baby range such as two for one offers or a temporary rollback on prices. The 'Head To Toe Wash' is a very mild liquid soap product which I've found useful for a multitude of things like facial washing, hand washing, bubble baths and as a mild shampoo and shower gel. I've found the 'Bedtime Bath' isn't perhaps as versatile as the 'Head to To Wash' due to it's scent and relaxing properties but as a bath foam and aromatic therapy aid it is brilliant.
The product comes in a large 750ml transparent, recyclable bottle which is shaped like a baby's body. I find the size of the product really generous for the price tag. You also get a lot for your money's worth as I find I don't have to use much and the content is used up very slowly. The bottle is printed with informational labels which detail the product's benefits, full ingredients and directions for use.
The liquid has many high quality ingredients and benefits. This is evidenced by the fact that the Little Angels range in Asda was awarded the 2009 Mother & Baby Gold Award for retailer of the year. The liquid has a no tears formulation so it's ultra mild and won't hurt your or your child's eyes. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested meaning that it is kind to your skin and won't cause any reactions or dryness. The liquid has also been approved by paediatricians meaning that you can really trust this product and know that the ingerdients are safe.
The 'Bedtime Bath' is specially formulated to help relax babies prior to their naps and bedtimes. I should point out that although it's primarily aimed at babies the brand state that it can also be used "by the whole family" on the product label and I find it a perfect product for adults too. It is infused with lavender and chamomile fragrances which are typically known for their relaxing and soothing qualities. The scent is really mild but there is the slightest hint of lavender, like a cool, fresh wind carrying a dash of the fragrance.
When I squeeze a dollop of liquid into my warm bath water there is a very slight flowery fragrance which stews in the steam. It doesn't create a great deal of bubbles but it leaves the water a little bit soapy and frothy. The bubbles dissipate the longer you stay in the bath though! You can squeeze a bit into your sponge to retain the bubbles and refresh the scent. The aromas do have relaxing properties and I find that using this liquid is a great way to calm down when used at any time of the day or night. I have used things like Radox in the past to achieve a similar relaxed effect but this fragrance is much more natural, fresh and pleasing to me than many of bath foam products I've tried before.
I love this product just as much as I love the 'Head To Toe Wash' and can't recommend it highly enough, especially considering it's price is around £1.50 for a massive and long-lasting 750ml. Get it for even less in Asda's two for £2 offer.
The product is suitable for vegetarians and is marked with an explanation that the company are against animal testing and fund research into alternatives.

My little girl has a bedtime routine. Not all kids do but we found that a bedtime routine was the only way to get her to sleep at night and not during the day! She has been having her bedtime routine since she was 9 weeks old. The bedtime routine in our household includes a nice relaxing bath. I picked up a bottle of The Asda Little Angels Bedtime Bath, after the Johnsons ran out and this one was much cheaper! (maternity pay isnt great you know! lol!). This one is £1.47 for 750 ml rather than the £1.97 for 300 ml Johnsons charge.
I used the Bedtime Bath the same night that I bought it and was very impressed. The product is very similiar to the Johnsons Bedtime Bath and in fact I dont think I would be able to tell the difference between the two if blindfolded. The product is a nice consistency and produces lots (and LOTS) of bubbles and so only a small amount is needed. The smell is of Lavender and is very relaxing and sleep inducing (especially for a tired mummy!). The product contains Lavender and Camomile, both essentail oils known for their calming effects. My daughters skin was nice a soft when she came out of the bath and she did not have any undesirable reactions to the product. Something I am conscious aboout with her being a baby.
The bottle is a nice large bottle, and it lasts ages! The cap is a flip cap which can be screwed off too. It is plastic and can be recycled. It is slightly frosted and is not unattractive.
I would recommend this product and I will be buying it again as I am very impressed.
Every thing to do with your children is so important and my son has sensitive skin so finding a bubble bath which had to meet so many standards didnt seem like an easy thing until I discovered Asdas Little Angels bed time bath ( which is very similar if not to the same to the johnsons one but half the price and a bigger bottle!) this bubble bath works a treat, It makes a lovely bath which is sented with a lavender extract which is proven to relax baby and get them nice and settled for bed. Its very reasoniably priced its around £1.60ish for a 400ml bottle but they are normally on at 2 bottles for £2 theres loads to choose from including baby talke, moisturior, shampoo, baby oils etc. The amount needed for each bath is literally only a few drops enough to make some bubbles so these bottles last ages.
The bottle is slighty frosted clear colour so you can see the lovely purple coloured bubble bath inside, it also has a no tears formula making it an ideal choice when baby is having a splash around.
I have been using this bubble bath for nearly 14 months and I definatly wont be changing, its excellent value for money and to me the same if not better than Johnsons.
I don't like using soap so I have to ensure that I have a full stock of baby wash in my house. I also have 3 of my own children and a stepson, so when it comes to bathing we use a lot of wash as a family.
I recently bought Asdas own bedtime bath due to the fact that it was £1 per bottle. We have been struggling financially lately due to my partner being out of work and the price of this seemed very reasonable.
This came in a squeezy bottle which was see-through with purple bath liquid inside. This is lavender smelling. I don't usually like lavender but the smell of this is not that strong so I don't mind it. It is part of the little angels range that asda do. I have previously used other products from the little angels range and have only high recommendations for it.
This product is dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic which means that this should be suitable from birth. My youngest daughter has not been able to use this due to she suffers from very dry skin on her face and this irritates it like everything else that we have tried so far. It is a bed time bath which is a no tears formula so in case the water splashes in your Childs eyes it will not sting them. This is good because all my children like to splash about in the bath and tend to get it in their eyes as well as on my floor. I haven't seen any reactions to this on myself or other children and we do all have sensitive skin.
It has a calming lavender extract which is supposed to relax children and make them calm and ready for bed. My children do not seem to calm down when I have used this if anything they are more hyperactive. I can't say that I feel more relaxed either.
You only have to add a few drops of this to your bath and mix it around. This creates a few bubbles that amuse my children and gives a slight smell to the water. I have noticed that once my children have been in the bath about 5 minutes their skin is clean all the dirt seems to have disappeared, pen marks do need some extra rubbing though. I use a little more solution in my bath but the same effect is given. This leaves my skin soft and smelling nice. It has also kept my children's skins feeling smooth, smelling nice and looking refreshed.
This has got a 12m date on the bottle. I have used only 1 of these bottles out of 2 that I bought in 3 months. It is a 400ml bottle and is very full. It has an easy open cap that clicks securely back on once not in use. They have recently changed the shape of the bottle to stand on its cap, I like that they have done this because you are able to get out that last little drop. This is specially made for asda and is only available at asda stores or on the shopping web site.
I think this is a very good and cheap baby wash that is kind and gentile on children's skins. I think it is a very good sized bottle that will last a long time and I have found that it is always available in my store. I don't think it would agree with all skin types but for the price it is definitely worth trying.
I have been very reluctant to try the bedtime bath products from supermarket brands and from Johnson & Johnsons as I have an allergy to Lavender, which is contained in these products for its soothing, sleeping aiding and relaxing qualities. However, with many people 'raving' about such products I thought I might be missing out on something and when I saw a multibuy offer at Asda for their own version I decided to buy a bottle. A 750ml bottle is £1.45 and two bottles are currently £2.00. This seemed like a bargain compared to Tescos 2 for £2 on a 500ml bottle and Johnson & Johnsons £2.20 for a 500ml bottle.
The pale lilac coloured bottle is ergonomically shaped as a giant teardrop with place to grip the bottle at the top. The bottle is widely recyclable, but we are advised to check the cap before recycling. Personally I would just remove the cap before recycling. The lilac flip top cap is easily to open and to dispense the product from.
There is a definite smell of chamomile and lavender fragrance in this bottle, which made me sneeze almost immediately!! Not a good start. However, it does smell pleasant and clean.
I easily dispense 2 -3 small squirts under warm running water to develop the foam, which is quite adequate, but not as bubbly as other brands of baby's bath wash I have used.
Using this for several weeks I can honestly say that I have not noticed any difference in my baby. He seems no more relaxed or sleepy after use, even when combined with talc (J&J Lavender and Chamomile - thought I would go the whole hog).
The product does clean well, smells lovely and keeps my baby's delicate skin soft and hydrated.
I would buy it again as I found that once I had gotten over the initial sneezes I was okay and the product did not irritate my skin in any way as many lavender products do. However, I do prefer head to toe wash now that i have discovered it as there is no need for two bottles in the bathroom.
It is a great value product but do not expect sleep miracles.
The bottle would also benefit from a pump action dispenser.
