Huggies Everyday Baby Wipes
Advantages: Fine for occasional use
Disadvantages: Can tear easily, hard to get out of pack
I seem to be forever buying baby wipes, keeping some in the bathroom beside the changing table, some in my changing bag and some at the high chair. I tend to stock up on wipes when they are on offer but I really don't mind trying unbranded wipes out, since some are just as good as the branded versions such as Boots wipes. The wipes in my changing bag were just coming to an end when I happened to be in my local Savers and noticed these Huggies Everyday Wipes retailing at 80p for a pack of 64 which was excellent value.
I almost always buy sensitive wipes so as not to upset my little girl's skin and although these wipes made no mention of being suitable for sensitive skin, I thought because they would be going in my changing bag for being out and about, I wouldn't therefore be using them all the time, and they would do the job. In fact, nowadays I tend to use more wipes to clean sticky hands and mouths rather than just dirty bums, so I took them anyhow.
The packaging of these wipes really makes them stand out, as the front is covered in colourful hand prints. It states on the packet that these wipes provide 'gentle and effective cleansing'. These wipes are alcohol free and each wipe contains a fresh cucumber scent, which you can smell on closer inspection. I like the smell of cucumber and it does always remind me of something fresh.
My biggest problem with these wipes is that I find them hard to get out of the pack- when you reach for one wipe, the only way to get a good grip seems to be by pulling out a handful of wipes at once, which is obviously a real waste, although I usually try to stuff them back in the packet. I also feel that if you are lucky enough to get one wipe out it can very easily tear as you pull it out, and therefore you can often need a second wipe anyhow.
All in all, although these wipes smell nice, I still would not use them everyday simply because I wouldn't trust them to totally protect my daughter's skin and I think they have the potential to irritate if used all the time. They are fine for occasional use, like when out and about but not anymore. I also think the fact that they are so hard to get out of the pack, and that one wipe can tear quite easily, they aren't quite as good value for money as they may initially seem.
Summary: An okay wipe pack but not for everyday use
