Boots Baby Wipes
Advantages: A great price and an adequate product
Disadvantages: I prefer my wipes thicker
I have been enjoying a little freedom recently when I have been choosing products for my daughter. In the past few months her skin has begun to settle down and it has been a while since she last had a reaction to a product. She's almost two so we didn't get to explore things but now I can (within reason- I'm still a little afraid!) I have stuck with baby wipes from Simple for so long now that it was with excitement that I picked up a packet of baby wipes from Boots last week. They were only 89p for 72 wipes so that seemed like a total bargain as I am used to paying a lot more for wipes.
The packet design has changed from the image that is at the top of this review. It is now cleaner looking- a light blue with an image of a baby to the right hand side. It is a fairly typical packet of wipes; there is a clip fastening in the middle and you open it up and pull the wipes out. This works pretty well, although sometimes you find yourself pulling four or five wipes out when you only really wanted one.
The front of the packet has some details about the wipes and even though I don't need to be as careful about products any more, I still find myself being happier when I see that items are "dermatologist and paediatrician approved" and it also tells you on the front that these wipes are 98% pure water. This makes me feel a little daft- I have pure water in my taps. Why do I pay almost £1 a time for baby wipes that I could make ecologically for free? I know its for convenience, but really I know what I should be doing.
If you flip the pack around to the rear there is slightly more information, basically that the wipes are soft and strong as well as hypo-allergenic. The ingredients are also included. I don't typically list the ingredients of a product, but with baby products this is sometimes necessary. The main ingredient is water and they do have parfum listed. This is an important one to note if you are having issues with sensitive skin.
When you pull a wipe from the packet they are one of the moister brands that I have tried. They aren't as thick or soft as you might expect, but they are ample for the general day-today messy hands that present themselves. However, heaven forbid that you get a particularly messy bum at some stage, the wipes are so thin that you will find yourself using a huge amount of wipes. In this case they really aren't very cost effective. So if you keep a pack around for normal household stuff and a pack of one of the other brands around for soiled nappies, then financially it would work out better,
They have not left my daughter with any sensitivity or reaction which is great and I think that I probably could have used these while she was having skin issues. They seem to be fine. I have also tried them on my own skin and they were very good.
I would recommend them as a spare packet to have around the house, and they'd be perfect for parents who have gone beyond the messy nappy stage and just need something convenient around to wipe paint of hands or chocolate covered mouths. I was happy with them, I do prefer Simple Wipes and even Pampers Wipes, but the Boots own brand were an inexpensive alternative.
Summary: I will buy these again.
