Mamia Baby Wipes
Disadvantages: Do not use as a face wipe. Highly irritant.
Mamia is a brand name avaliable from Aldi, you can get nappies and baby wipes from this brand, and maybe other things from larger stores. I use baby wipes on my face in conjunction with soap and water to cleanse the make up off my face. I ususally buy Tesco or Johnson's wipes but I was in Aldi one day and picked these up to save having to go to Tesco just for baby wipes. I wiped my face with the Mamia baby wipe before bed as I usually do, and then rinsed my face before moisturising etc. I noticed that the skin on my cheeks was tingling but I didn't think much of it to be honest. I have very hardy and tough skin and have never had any skin reaction to any product whatsoever so I wasn't worried. When I woke up however, my eyes had swollen right up, and they felt all sticky. My eyelids were huge and my under eyes hung down in two huge puffy bags. My eyes were like tiny slits peering through these huge puffy balls. I was terrified! The only product I had used that I hadn't used before were those baby wipes, and I now realised that was why my skin had been tingling. I had to take the day off work as I deal with customers and I looked like I'd been in some huge punch and I would've simply terrified anybody if they had opened the door to find me in that state on their doorstep. I hadn't even put the wipes right over my eyes as I never do, but I wiped under the eyes and above my eyebrows but obviously that was enough to cause the horrible flare up.
Instead of throwing them away I though I would keep them for my goddaughter as she comes to stay quite regularly but then I though on second thoughts if they did that to my tough skin what on earth are they going to do to a baby's delicate bottom? I decided then to throw them away. I realise that they are actually a baby wipe and not a face wipe so this review may seem a little off the point but a lot of people do use baby wipes as make up wipes and also the point I am getting across is the fact that these baby wipes must contain some pretty strong stuff in them, so they are probably not best for a delicate baby. I must admit they had a pretty strong smell when I opened the packet. Overall I would not recommend the Mamia baby wipes as they seem to contian some sort of irritant. Even though they are probably used trouble free by a lot of people it's not worht the risk and you're better off buying a more trusted brand.
Summary: Never again!
