Advantages: Perfect thickness, perfect moisture level, lovely mild scent
Disadvantages: Can be expensive if not bought when on offer
Over the last twenty years I've tried almost every brand of baby wipe that's hit the shelves but I keep coming back to Johnson's, because as far as I'm concerned they are simply the best available. The standard pack of 64 wipes is easily opened via a sticky tab, that unlike some brands retains it's stickiness until the last wipe is used. These baby lotion infused wipes are easy to remove from the packaging, without pulling out more than one at a time or ripping the wipe. Once in the hand they have the perfect level of moisture, not too wet or too dry and unlike some other brands the last wipe has the same level of moisture as the first.
Formed of a ribbed and slightly stretchy material with a gentle "no more tears" formulation they are perfect for wiping dirty bums, grubby hands and faces. Although technically it's not recommended to use any wipe on a newborn baby's bum, I find these are perfect for cleaning up that nasty, black poo that just sticks to cotton wool. They're also great for cleaning up a toddler's much more adult, stinky poo, and are the perfect thickness, not so thin that they tear but still thin enough to allow you to get in all the nooks and crannies and unless it's an explosion, I never need to use more than three or four wipes. As they wipe up the mess they leave a very thin layer of moisturising lotion on the skin, which is absorbed quickly leaving the skin soft and dry.
Although they are also available in an un-fragranced variety, I must admit that I love the smell of these wipes, which is a very mild version of the classic Johnson's baby smell. I've never known these wipes to cause a reaction either, even on my youngest's very sensitive bottom. As with all wipes, they will sting if the little one has severe nappy rash, but not nearly as much as many cheaper wipes. Talking of price, at normal retail price these are significantly more expensive than many other brands, but they are often on special offer. By stocking up whenever I see them on offer, I've never paid more than 75p a pack, meaning they are not only better than the leading competitor, but also cheaper.
As well as being great for cleaning bums, these wipes are brilliant for wiping grubby hands and sticky fingers. I always have some handy for when we're doing anything messy. They even make great standbys for when you've run out of make-up remover, cleaning off the slap and lightly moisturising in one. Other uses include cleaning white trainers or the residue from sticky labels, and they bring up leather settees a treat. They can even be used to freshen up on hot days, just use them to wipe all those hot sweaty bits. So I'm giving these wipes five out of five and recommending that you at least give them a try.
Summary: There's a reason why I'm loyal to this brand
